There’s No Place Like Home

Although, I am unsure of why this is, but sometimes I just don’t want to deal with downtown Denver. I love being downtown, the atmosphere, the people, the parking. Oh wait, the parking sucks. I consider myself a lucky girl, to now live within walking (or stumbling) distance of the new Westminster Lodo’s Bar and Grill. No more fighting the downtown crowds and parking.

So okay, maybe the downtown location is the *best* but have you seen the Westminster locations patio? The views of the Front Range are just stunning, which forces you to spend too much time gazing out onto the Flatirons, thus causing your food to get cold. It doesn’t get much better than this (not the cold food part). Just another reason why I love Denver.


I suppose the point of this post is to say that, I *heart* Denver. It’s taken me a few years to adjust and grow to love this area, but I know that I’ll probably never leave.

What’s brought on this confession of love, you ask? My dearest husband and I recently being held, against our will I might add, in a foreign communist country (that sounds a bit more dramatic than it really was, but still true). I kept saying to myself, GET ME HOME TO DENVER. During those few days, there was no where else I wanted to be. I just wanted to be back in safe, comfortable, loving Denver. If only I could have just tapped my sparkling red shoes together … There’s no place like home.

I am glad to finally be back in Denver. Now, who wants a drink? I hear a new Lodo’s is open.

    Over where I work there’s one (highlands ranch) and I’ve haven’t been to the top but I’m betting there’s some nice views.

    And welcome back!

    I was fairly disappointed with the Westminster Lodo’s. (I’ve never been to the others, so I had no idea what to expect.) The food was marginal in my opinion, and the staff were all a bunch of rookies that made you worry about whether your drink was going to make it to your table. And just to illustrate the kind of place it is: My wife was offered a free birthday *shot* (and she had to pick one of the following: kamikaze, purple hooter, or blow job — classy!).

    The view is disco, though. You can watch the private jets swoop into Jeffco… er… Rocky Mountain Metropolitan Airport. We were on the side balcony, not upstairs, and it was still good.

    Personally, I’d rather pay more (much more, really) to get fantastic food and service at Nine 75 up the road.

    Glad you escaped communism, though! ;^)

    I will agree with the service part, our server was actually quite rude when asking to see our ID’s. The delivery of drinks and food was slow, but I chalked that up to it still being opening weekend. I am hoping it calms down a bit … and some go back to their ‘locals’ instead.

    I’m there (as soon as I get back from Chicago!).

    See you soon :-)

    Held in a foreign communist country? Do tell!
