The Big City

Steve and I and another couple came to Denver today for a little big city excitement.

We rented a Hyundai Santa Fe for the leg room since neither of our cars have very spacious back seats. The Santa Fe was pretty plush with XM satellite radio, an iPod dock and an MP3 connection.

We stopped at Sopp & Truscott, a great bakery in funky old Silver Plume and had a very good and very inexpensive lunch.

We checked out the newest Tattered Cover on East Colfax in the historic Lowenstein Theater. Love the bookstore and the building still maintained many of its theater characteristics.

We checked into the Sheraton on the 16th Street Mall to find a convention of school principals. Got a few laughs off of that one.

After cocktails at Purple Martini, we had dinner at Alto which we chose since it replaced Sambuca, the restaurant we thought we were going to go to. It was very good with a nice ambience and live music. I think though that I might have offended the Republicans at the next table with my opinions on W., the movie (and the President).

Suzannah and I called it a night but Steve and Patrick went out to check out Lucky Strike Lanes, the bowling alley which they reported is very cool and hip.

Tomorrow, Dr. Atomic, simulcast from the New York Metropolitan Opera.
