Well, something came up at work and it looks like I am going to be heading to Denver, CO in a couple of days. Obviously, most of the time I am going to be doing work stuff, but the nights are mine to enjoy. The nearest major intersection is I-70 and I-225...anyone know of any good bars/breweries/restaurants/whatever around that area?

I guess that would fall in the 'whatever' category

I saw a news article about the Scarlet Ranch awhile back, you could always visit there. Sounds like fun.

Thanks for the tips, and going through the trouble of linking all of those websites. That was very helpful. I am going to have to research Denver's public transportation. There is not much near where I am at, and I am not going to drive if I am going out hitting the bars.

Firebomb the Coors brewery?













Sorry, I'm in a mood today.

Heh I think Coors is actually up in Golden, CO, right next to the School of Mines, unless there's also one in Denver I don't know about.

I travel to Denver a lot. sounds like you're in the north part of the metro. See if there is a Light Rail station nearby, and you can get into downtown/LowDo really easily and cheaply.

lots of good places to eat, clubs.

There's a brewpub called "Pints" that is downtown, good beer. Also Wyncoop is there, its just 'ok'.
