The Denver Mint = Fort Knox!




It has been decided. I will not be going to my 10 year reunion. I will, however, be entertaining my brother who has purchased a plane ticket and will be staying with me for a week!

The best thing about my brother coming to visit me (apart from spending quality time together) is that I can take him around Denver and show him the sites to be seen!

I’m so excited!

I sat down last night and started brainstorming. I figured I would take off a couple days of work, since I won’t be going to my reunion anyways.

Things for my brother and (not limited to) me to do:
1. Go Bowling at Lucky Strike Lanes on the 16th Street Mall
2. Go to the Coors Brewery
3. Go to the Denver Mint
4. Go to Lookout Mountain and Buffalo Bill’s Grave
5. Go to Casa Bonita
6. Go to The Midnight Movie at the Esquire (either Ed Wood or The Great Muppet Caper!)
7. Go to Lakeside
8. Go to Dave and Busters (the duo is BACK at Shinobi!)

If anyone has any awesome ideas of things we can do while he is here, I’d love some suggestions! Even if you don’t know Denver, what are some fun GUY things to do when visiting your sister?

And as for the Mint, I just tried to make reservations for a tour, and they’re booked SOLID through mid-September! What gives? Are there REALLY that many people trying to tour the Mint? Geez!!!!

Red Rocks... gotta do Red Rocks.

That's all that's coming to mind... surely I'll come up w/ more...

good call on Casa Bonita/Lakeside/Esquire. I've been feelin' the fever for the flavor of the sopapillas.

Yeah, I'm looking forward to seeing you and Josh. I haven't gotten to spend much time with you as of late or gotten to know him that much. So it will be a blast.

Cas, get that man some good beer. Sure, take him on a tour of the coors brewery, but after that take him to the bar for a New Belgium - assuming you can't find any Boulevard.

Good Beer does not mean Coors! But what would I know...I just took up drinking.

` I love red rocks and climbing them. Can you believe that someone actually asked this waitress in a red-rocky area who painted them?
` Ha haa!
` And so is that actually a pic of you guys? I take it you can upload them now!
` That's crazy about the Denver Mint! Wow!

` Mmm! Mint....
