Want to learn more about Colorado's history? The Colorado History Museum is a good place to start. The museum boasts numerous exhibits, including ones that address the Latino population throughout Colorado's history, as well as exhibits created just for kids.
Admission is pretty inexpensive at $5 for a regular ticket, and there are family free days when just about all of Colorado pays a visit to the museum. Decent parking is available at nearby lots; finding street spots is pretty tough.
My biggest dislike is the way the exhibits have been set up in the past. -I didn't find them easy to read or follow, although they are informative.
Located close to Downtown, the Funky Buddha offers a place for the "too cool for the club" gang to hang out, enjoy drinks, and try to pick up. The bar alternates between ridiculously crowded to hey, is anyone else in here? It's got a cool vibe, though, and you can't help but feel a little bit better than the poor schleps at the bars next door.
Enjoy your drinks indoors or outside on the covered patio. Wear your good cologne, and look your best. -You never know who you'll see here.
Leave your attitude and expensive shoes at home when you're headed out to the Deadbeat Club. This deceptively large joint houses three dance floors where you can get down to hip hop, trance & 80's music. Catering to the college crowd, it's still 30's friendly. Try not to get lost as you wander through seemingly random stairwells, multi-level dance floors, and throngs of sweaty patrons. If you do lose your friends, no worries. -You'll make more at the Deadbeat.
This is a relatively small dance club, where you can get down to live Salsa music and enjoy a full service bar. There's a cozy couch section for people watching or just cooling off. People at La Rumba are friendly and dance-ready, so be prepared to hit the floor with a few strangers. -Not the best Salsa dancer? Don't worry. -Latin men (in particular) are more than willing to show you their moves and guide you along...
I had my nails done (manicure & pedicure) for my wedding here. It's a nice little place. They have massage chairs to keep you relaxed during your pedicure, and they are up to code on health standards. -You can buy your own equipment and keep it stored in the shop if you prefer not to share the tools that they use.
Good selection of OPI nail polish, friendly staff, and comparable prices make Star Nails an ideal nail salon!
We had shelves custom made for our china hutch here. They were really nice and friendly, and had the shelves ready within four days. Prices are great, and they want you to be completely satisfied with their work. This is a family owned businesss, so you're always working with someone who cares. I'd recommend this company to anyone!
PROS: Excellent service, low prices, friendly
El Tejado is a place to get authentic Mexican food at a great price. From enchiladas suizas to tacos al pastor to a big bowl of posole, El Tejado offers delicious fare.
Make sure to ask for chips & salsa when you arrive. -It's a great start to any plato!
On Sundays, Mariachi Sol de mi Tierra plays. They're well known in Denver, and have a few CDs out.
This little gem on Lincoln Street is a place to enjoy the BEST breakfast pitas and really good coffee. The owners are great- they prepare your food themselves. In addition to the deli's tasty Greek food (buy hummus, cheese and pastries to take home!), you can also browse through an exotic array of Greek pantry items like cake mixes, stuffed grape leaves, and imported olive oil. Diana's is a wonderful spot, not to be missed.
This agency specializes in cruises, but offers land and air packages as well. You can book a weekend trip to Las Vegas, a weeklong cruise in Greece, or a family vacation to a Disney Theme Park.
Melody is really nice, and offers a lot of helpful suggestions on planning your trip. -It's a lot more personal than going through the Web!
Ah Sam's Club, epitome of American Consumerism. Here you can get gigantic packages of muffins, more tin foil than you can use in a whole year, and 30-pack bags of tube socks. Gotta love it!
This Sam's is a good one. -Clean bathrooms, pretty good employees, and lots and lots of stuff. I recently found that Sam's also carries name brand jewelry, perfume and purses, too! So pick up a Fendi bag with your 10-lb. sack of frozen chicken patties and you'll have it made.
