Top of the Town


Have y’all seen this and picked it up? I’ve never actually picked up the 5280 magazine but since I’m now blogging on a Denver blog, I figured I should stretch out a little. I browsed through and spotted a place I had actually been! Benny’s Restaurante down on Seventh Avenue was introduced to me by a friend on a Downtown Wandering and I have to say that 5280 is right on the salsa. It’s telling that it was a “Reader’s Choice” and I can vouch for them. Their food is just about finger lickin’ good.

I showed this to a friend of mine and she started picking out places on each flipping page and asking me why I hadn’t gone there or why in the wide wide world of sports hadn’t I explored this and where was my sense of adventure. I stuttered out something about it was hiding somewhere in the basement but was met with a backhand and a command to get myself to a nunnery. Pending my changing of gender she laid down the law.

I must become a better Denver person. So therefore I shall set out on my quest to explore the land of the 5280 and report back to you. Because that dang backhand hurts!

Off topic but equally important for the masses out there: John McClane is back and he’s one tough son of a gun. The movie rocks your socks and sends your brain spinning around your head. It’s just that good. Get thyself to the Church of Die Hard this weekend and you shall be saved.
