To Denver we ride this fine morning, Pueblo Park was beautiful but we must move forward. Before we got on the road we figured it would be nice to stop in Starbucks to grab some food, map our destination, and to use the internet to catch up on the blog a bit. We ended up staying for a couple of hours actually; Kat did the blog while Smalls took the car down the street to a carwash for a much needed debugging. The poor car has been getting pretty gross and the ride through Colorado painted the bumper in gnats, lets just say it was getting difficult to read the license plate. After doing our homework for the day, we set out for the city. It took us a couple of hours to get there but when we arrived in Denver we noticed how small it was and how young the visible population seemed. Everyone there either drives a moped or a 4-wheel drive vehicle with roof racks and there are coffee shops everywhere. It was cute and we felt as though it was time for a mellow night so we found a place to stay just outside of town, a Motel 6 where we freshened up with showers to head out for dinner and one of our favorite past times, a movie! yay! We headed into town past Coors Field, the Colorado Rockies stadium which was packed for the nights game, leaving more room in downtown for the two of us. We found another restaurant featured on Man vs. Food called The Cherry Crickett where we ate amazing oversized burgers with delectible fries and a few drinks. The place was small and dark with pictures covering the walls, they had a friendly staff of people our age or near who seemed to live life to its fullest, near tattoo parlors and cannabis gardens.
After our dinner we traveled 5 minutes to the theater where we saw Avatar: The Last Airbender. All about element benders mixed with karate and a little boy monk with super cool tattoos, it was an entertaining movie, and it was able to fill our desires of air conditioning and a giant screen. The movie brought us to a late night and tired eyes so we went back to the motel to get ready for our trip to the Rockies and got to bed. Goodnight.
