Bye Bye Blackbird

Bronco bustin began a week ago in the Mile High City, not the Hitchcockian playoff variety but the dusty arena variety as National Western Stock Show commenced one week ago and will play through to next weekend.

This is Colorado and the Denver area's signature annual event, where downtown's 17th Street Financial district welcomes long-horn steer and the wranglers to match.  The Brown Palace Hotel's lobby debuts the prize winning steer, less than one month ago 20 young debutantes were presented by white tied fathers.  They can be seen this week in Lucchese boots and jeans. 

Denver will host ranchers, equestrians, farmers, agri-scientists, entrepeneurs, investors, musicians, professional rodeo and the old fashioned cowboy type.  The event that lasts over two weeks is not only a huge bonus for the Denver economy, but the results are long lasting.  There have been many a downtown pied a terre sold to the rural gentry, the penthouse at 1551 Larimer Place as an example.  LoDo, LoHi, the Highlands and Cherry Creek offer the perfect city get away with the proximity to all the major sporting events, world class theatre, opera, ballet and the symphony.  Shopping and restaurants abound, all within walking distance of the downtown area or a short cab ride from areas such as Cherry Creek or Uptown.

Email me for more information on the listings offered city close and beyond.  There are many reasons to love Denver and the state of skies, colorful sunrise and sunsets, the white capped Rocky Mountains and the broncos too.
