Clouds over Littleton.

Dinner at my parent’s house with my aunt. 

I can’t tell if the neighbors hate their neighbors or just people in general.

Apparently I’m not the only person who thinks the alley is a pretty decent place to hang out.

Anonymous said: How long have you lived in Colorado and what are some cool spots/places you would recommend to a visitor who is not from the area to check out?

I think this is the first time anything has entered by Ask box.

Anyway

I have lived in Colorado my whole life. Littleton -> Boulder -> Denver.

Stranahan’s distillery tour in Denver is great. Cool tour with free whiskey at the end.

Williams and Graham in the Denver Highlands is an awesome speakeasy where you can get a drink and actually hear +60% of the conversation you are having with your company.

GCB is Golden’s second largest (and best) brewery. If you don’t mind overhearing engineering students talk about their differential equations homework then this is the place for you.

The Bitter Bar in Boulder serves up some nice cocktails, and the dim light kinda makes you feel like Tony Leung in, In The Mood for Love (only if you’re Asian though. Other wise…Jon Hamm in Mad Men).

There are lots of nice parks and hikes that can easily be enhanced with a flask of whiskey or a 40 of Mickey’s. There are some cool alleys to drink in too.


Did I just list off a bunch of places to drink?

You wanted to know that, right?

Bike ride to the top of Lookout mountain.
On the way down I didn’t encounter a single car behind me. I took up the whole lane. Looking out over Golden, weaving in and out of the switch backs - one could almost feel like a bird.
Then you realize you are definitely not and 40 mph is an easy way to smash your ass into the pavement so you stop being whimsical and concentrate on steering your stupid, ground based transport.

The Governor’s office says goodbye to their fearless comms director, Eric Brown.
I am glad I was able to make it to Eric’s happy hour. Eric was one of the best supervisors I ever had. I was always impressed with his ability to digest information and deliver information in a coherent, accessible manner.
It was great to see all my old co-workers from gov’s office. I love my new job, but I definitely miss that family.
Congrats, Eric. I hope your new office is okay with you cursing all the time.
