Feed me damn it
We know the feeling. Your stomach is about to eat itself and your heart is pounding with the anxiety of finding a place to eat with good food, ambiance, and service. Your hanger is about to reach levels you didn’t know existed, and the thought of settling for Applebee’s enrages you even more.
Look to your left and find what can arguably be the best view of the Denver Skyline. Look to your right and your eyes will be met with geometric mirrors, and pops of colorful art. During the warmer months you can enjoy your tapas on the patio.

Drink. Drank. Drunk
It wouldn’t be vacation unless you were letting loose and getting hammered. Skip getting weird at dinner, even though it is convenient, and definitely don’t count on drinking at the hotel bar. Go out and grab a drink at a place that will make all your Snapchat friends jealous.

Honestly you could spend the whole night here and not get bored. You could grab some dinner, but the real fun begins when you grab some drinks.

Adventure Is Out There
Yes mom, please let’s visit the mall and shop at stores we frequent at home. No dad, I don’t want to go to another natural history museum. They’re literally all the same. These are words we are sure get uttered on the daily by tourists. Don’t worry we got some good spots to check out that aren’t completely tragic.
This lovely book store sells gently used books, local art, and alternative comics such as Unicorns of Planet Earth, King Cat, and A Horse, A Crow, and A Hippo Walk Into a Bar.
