Three Days

The Super Bowl has become the East Coast bowl but the talk of this town is "win or lose, they still have to live on the east coast". So, what is so intriguing about the life and style in the mile high city, home of the AFC West champions and four other professional sports teams? Let's take a look at the last three days in Denver. Friday afternoon, temperatures hovered around 60 degrees with a front range anyone? The city's municipal courses hosted foursomes from around town and the mountain communities. City Park's golf course was spectacular with views of snow capped mountain peaks and sweater weather. After an afternoon of fresh air, time to breathe in the city views from a rooftop deck at one of the newer nightspots opening in the boutique Denver communities. Linger, in the Highlands has a rooftop deck with views of the luminous Denver skyline, but don't linger (double pun intended) two days to go. Saturday, temperatures hovered between the late fifties and early sixties so time to cruise through the morning. Everyone had a ride, from Schwinn to Harley to muttons. The last weekend of the National Western Stock Show features the Mutton Bustin contest along with the finals for the other bronco bustin. This was the weekend to get your chaps on! Part of the National Western Stock Show tradition is to keep the holiday lights lit, so it was the final weekend to take in the post holiday glow, including the spectacular canopy of lights at Larimer Square. The nightlife on Larimer Square rivets with the block long selection of bars and restaurants, including a speakeasy under the street. You do not need to go where everyone knows your name in Larimer, between the food, bars and music you will find plenty of "cheers" and a closing time of 2 am is not a deterrent as fresh tracks await. Sunday, early start for winter sports in the high country. While Denver enjoyed a mid-winter thaw, the mountains received inches to feet of the white stuff. The many world class ski resorts are less than a two hour drive so Denverites can pick and choose, no flights required. To round out the three days, a leisurely afternoon at an apres ski spot to catch the final two minutes. With the Rocky playground in the background, many a Denverite smiled, the East Coasst may have two Super Bowl contenders but we get to live here.
