    Who's from there, been there, familiar with Denver?
    I'm going to be staying at a hotel on Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. Is the old addage true in this case?
    What shoudl I expect, I've never been to Colorado.

    So you can afford a nice hotel in Denver but not the 5$ to be a supporter? :dontcare:

    I hate Denver...speeding ticket, parking ticket, snow, Broncos beat my Chargers! fuck I hate Denver!

    I always stayed in Aurora but make sure you take a side trip and head west to Golden for a Coors tour. Don't be a dick and they'll let you hang out after the tour and get loaded all for free. Blake street in downtown Denver has a few breweries you must check out. Have fun!

    Hopefully the nicest on MLK! I street-viewed it but it doesn't look bad at all. Hopefully racial tensions won't flare.

    Yea, Golden is a half hour away, I checked that before actually anything. How straight is the drive back? mostly straight?

    I'm not multi-quoting all of you , sorry.

    I live in Denver....Great City.

    If you do a brewery tour (which you should!), dont do Coors. There are millions of better breweries in the area. I recommend the Great Divide Brewery or head to Boulder and check out the Avery Brewery. Also might be cool to check out the Stranahans Colorado Whiskey Distillery tour.

    There are some good places to eat in Denver. The city is kind of spread out, and I would do research on where you want to go. There is a city block in Downtown called "larimer square" that has some cool upscale places. There are tons of great hikes right in the area, if you check out the "Jefferson County Open Space" website, or you can take I-70 all the way up to the high country. If there is a Rockies game, you should check it out, Coors Field is a great ballpark.

    Feel free to post more questions, or PM me, or whatever.

    Also...the weather is weird here. Bring clothes for three seasons.
