McCormick's Fish House in Lo-Do. The Cruise room in the back is a cool retro martini bar and the front bar does awesome appetizers for happy hour....and Ketel One martinis. Back in the day they were all $1, but that was long ago. Still a good deal though.

Near Evans and Colorado is a little dive called Kokoro Bowl. AWESOME Japanese fast food, cheap. In the same area, Evans and Broadway is the original Chipotle. Burritos the size of your head and a line to get in....don't miss. The chain is good, but this place will rock your world.

If you like outdoors stuff, hiking up to Gem lake in Estes Park....or take a hike out to St. Mary's Glacier. Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs is worth an afternoon to drive down to.

If you make it down to Colorado Springs, the Colorado Mountain Brewery right off Interquest and I-25 is awesome. Some of the best food I have ever had and good beer as well.

Although, if you are going to be driving that far you might as well head north to Fort Collins for a day as well to check out New Belgium. Great tour and awesome brewery. Can also hit up Odells and Fort Collins Brewery.

If you can make it to FT. Collins, check out Funk Works Brewery and try the "Hibiscus Resistance" session beer. Awesome.

Wow! This thread blew up. Thanks guys.

Any/all suggestions are welcome since when I travel, beer is in the forefront and anything I'd be pissed to find out I missed once I got back is secondary. I'll be picking up some bottles and hitting up some of the breweries, too. Thanks for all the food ideas. It's always a bummer to sit down hungry at a crappy restaurant.

So near Denver small non bottled beer worth visiting: Strange Brewing, Renegade Brewing, Bull and Bush (good burgers as well) Golden City Brewing in golden. Tones in the boulder and north as well

Bigger ones worth while: Great Divide, Breckenridge, and of course, Coors

Bars, Falling Rock (will be packed as hell) Cheeky Monk

Also Google Denver beer week

Trinity Brewing is the place to go in Colorado Springs, I think.
