Weekend Adventures

On Friday, I had a conference in downtown Denver…so I talked Kevin into going with me. We actually went Thursday night, and then stayed till Saturday. It was really fun.

Here is our room:

The drapes are closed, but this is a huge rounded window overlooking the cityscape. I love big cities and this was a good view.

The conference on Friday was productive and I was able to do some networking, I think I was able to recruit a few people to come teach for me! :)

Friday night Kevin and I went to see Confessions of a Shopaholic and then went to the Paramount CafĂ© for dinner….The movie and food were both good, and the company on our date night was wonderful!

Saturday, we wanted to do some shopping so off we went. But the real excitement for the day was lunch. We had lunch at Casa Bonita! For those South Park fans, they did an episode once on the famous restaurant. We enjoyed our lunch, the all you can eat sopaipillas, and the entertainment. We also watched Black Bart lose to the sheriff and over into the water he went. We saw the “500 lb” gorilla escape, and we watched the cliff divers. Yes all that in one lunch time special :)

Here is the famous pink building......

This was our lunch...we both had the chicken dinner....chicken taco, burrito and enchilada, with rice and beans, it was yummy!

Here is the Sheriff, shooting Black Bart....when will Black Bart learn..... Kevin and I also had a chance to walk through Black Barts Cave...yikes that is scary! :)

From our table we could not only see the stage above, but we could see down to the pool below as well.

The Sopaipilla area....they were making them as fast as the wait staff could take them out.

What fun decor don't you think?

It is a fun place to go and if you ever come to visit we will take you ;)
