Things to do in Denver...

We arrived in town late last night, and today I spent the day wandering around the downtown Denver area. There is a really great outdoor mall and market all up and down 16th Street in Denver, and I was actually smart enough to do a little Christmas shopping while I was down there. Granted, I spotted a few things that I wanted to get for myself as well, but that's what the season is all about, eh? The Ramada where we are staying provides a complimentary shuttle service back and forth from the hotel to the downtown district, and our van driver this morning was very helpful in pointing out places of interest. We're going to spend Monday touring the US Mint and the Coors Brewery, since those tours are free on Mondays. And Brandon made sure to check out places to watch all the football games tomorrow. We're also having the rest of our cast re-join us one by one as we come back from our Thanksgiving break. No more private little trip for us.

I've never visited Denver...only passed through on train where I was amazed by the sight of buffalo and slightly cowed (okay, pun intended) by the sight of the intimidating mountains...

So let me know if money & beer factories make it worth the trip. ;)

Make sure to visit the mint and the brewery in that order. This way the free samples from the mint will pay for the beer after you've exhausted the free mug full.
