Shoe Repair on East Colfax

I wanted to give a shout out to this place, but I have no idea what the business is called. Wanting to mix it up for a wedding I found some nice but dusty and faded shoes I hadn’t worn in years. They shined and polished them for only $6. If you’re in the neighborhood and…

Camping . Guanella Pass

Most of my weekend camping trips include a solid three hour drive out of town. I love Buena Vista and central Colorado, or north to Wyoming, but both are at least two hours away. My friend has a spot in Guanella Pass only about 1.5 hours from Denver (the last half hour down a dirt…

Denver B-Cycle

I’m extremely impressed with the number of locations. When I thought of a bike sharing…

Bd’s Mongolian Grill . Denver

I received a complimentary dinner invite from the Mongolian Grill crew, who are smartly integrating social media to promote new menu items while offering a free appetizer on various blogs. (I included their offer in this post.) Mongolian Grill was new to me. I’ve never heard of the place, not even in passing, so I…
