Denver is NOT carry-friendly at all.

I won't need it but the LAPD / LA Dodger Fan might.

Thanks for the Colorado CCW law outline link. Very good information to have.

I don't think we'll make it down to CS, but you're welcome to join us.

PM sent. Unfortunately I have to work that weekend. We're strapped for people right now.

Papa Smurf and MrAughh, didn't realize you are in the Springs. I am here as well. If we can get Viking to man up, we should have a Springs Socnet linkup...the Golden Bee would be a good place to start!

I will second that even though I have never been there or in Denver. Saw it on the Food Channel and it looks insanely good.

CS and the Golden Bee is worth the drive! Can't wait to get back out there with HH6 this time.

Denver was a blast! We stayed at the Sheraton Downtown, right on the 16th Street Mall. We watched two night games above the mile high ring at Coors Field. The Denver Cheese Steak sandwiches are definitely a staple if you go to that park. We had planned on doing alot more while we were there, but didn't. When we walked over to the Denver Mint, but they were closed. We couldn't get a group consensus on Dinosaur Ridge or the King Tut Exhibit at the museum either.

We did; however, manage to close down the Celtic Tavern/Delaney's two nights in a row, and partied with Steve "Psycho" Lyons (LA Dodgers color commentator) the first night. Andre Ethier (LA Dodgers) showed up both nights, and I managed to get an autographed game ball for my brother. Uneventful for a Giants fan.

My neck is still sore from having my head on a swivel. Denver has some of the most beautiful women I have seen. The "Mile High Skirts" are unbelievable! They were at the ballgames! They were at the bar! they were everywhere!

We will have to schedule more time next year for cultural stuff. I think everyone has decided on a St Louis Cardinals trip.

Uhhh......shotgun willes......there used to be a mechanical bull there.....years ago......guess it would have been back in the early 90's or so. Anyone remember it? No, I did not get on it, but a buddy did and then puked his beer. It was a LYAO moment.
