    I am going to be in Denver the weekend of 9/30 to go to the Raiders-Bronco's game and go to a meeting at Johns-Manville on Monday. We are scheduled to arrive on Friday, and have most of Saturday to do what we want. I havent gotten the itinerary yet as to where we are staying. J-M is taking us to lunch at Panzano, and springing for dinner at Guard and Grace. It looks like we'll be staying somewhere near those, either the Hyatt or Marriott, I presume.

    Yup, I'm gonna hit a dispensary and enjoy what they have to offer. I would love to hit a good music store. Any recommendations on both? Any open mic nights near where we'll be staying, and if so, are any of you locals playing? I checked to see if there was any cool concerts in town when we are there, but nothing except Norm McDonald sparked my interest. Are there any local bands that kick ass playing over the weekend?

    If anyone wants to hang out, I can only take so much beer culture (one of my cohorts is a beer guy, and I'm not), so I could Uber or Lyft to a music store and we could talk gear and I can show you what painting with a sledgehammer looks and sounds like.

    The airport food is ridiculously expensive. More than most others.

    There. I said it.

    Wildwood is on my list for Saturday morning. We're right around the corner from a liquor store and a dispensary, so I'm covered there.:hippie::cool2: Looks like we are going to the Dodgers/Rockies game on Saturday night, which should be cool. Half a brownie and a baseball game; should be just about awesome.

    Was in Denver once. Stayed up all night drinking, no sleep and took the Coors Brewery tour, first one in the morning. Back then they gave ya 2 free samples at the end of the tour. They cut us off at one. :dunno:

    Have your fun Friday and Saturday night. Dry out and clean up for the meeting Monday morning. Your stock will rise.

    As long as you enjoy sitting still in your car, you'll be fine.
