August 26th: Eat at Vesta

So I came across this restaurant a couple years ago in downtown Denver called Vesta. I do not remember why but it really caught my eye and I have been meaning to try it ever since. 

Today is my birthday, so no better day than today. Holy goodness, it was so delicious!

Six friends came along. They had a 38 ounce ribeye that sounded just amazing! So three of us shared it. 


The idea of the restaurant is that it’s a “dipping” restaurant so most of the dishes come with lots of sauces and you dip everything. The steak was great. We also got dipping sauces with pita bread, a huge charcuterie plate and amazing dessert.

The best part though, my friends spending a great birthday with me and enjoying great food.

 

July 16th: Host a BBQ

What a fun thing to do! Hosting a BBQ is quite the endeavor but such a fun time.

Owning my own house has been such an adventure and has enabled me to do so many things. 

I decided to have a house party this weekend. My friend, Jared, bought me a grill as a housewarming gift, so no better time than to host a BBQ.

So many great friends turned out and we had a fabulous time. I think there will be many more of these to come at this house.

We had cornhole, a keg, some tired pups and a great group of friends!


Next time I will step it up and make some great BBQ!

July 9th: Go to a Comedy Show

I recently met a guy a work who is a a comedian and currently working on spreading the comedy scene around Denver. He wanted to know if we could put on a show in the venue… and we’ll, what a great idea!

We are doing it once a month, but today I had the great pleasure of hanging out for the comedians.

It was awesome. They were hilarious. 


I think it is going to be a great experience once a month and hopefully we can get more people to attend!

June 20th: Hangout on a Rooftop Patio

This is probably the coolest rooftop patio in Denver to hang out on. The Tavern Rooftop Patio at Coors Field is so fun!

I went to a service industry tailgate party with some former coworkers from a different place than I work at now:


It was a really fun time! And the view from the rooftop is great:


Good times!

June 12th: Try a New Sport

Some may not consider this a sport, but after completing on CrossFit class today, I say pssshhhh to that.

It was so intense and difficult and rewarding and body crushing and body building… there are so many ways to describe this… but over all those things alone classify it as a sport to me.

So today was day one, but I signed up for a six week challenge. I am excited and scared and really just hoping I complete it.

I found the program on Facebook and am really pleased with the place that I found CrossFit Eminence.


The coach today was great, inspirational, dedicated, and very understanding of my abilities (or lack there of).

I can’t wait for the rest of the classes!

June 10th: Go to New Denver Central Market

Well, it is not really new anymore but definitely new to me.

I do not know what took me so long, because now that I have been there I just might be stopping in daily!

It is only 5 blocks from where I work and just an amazing assortment of things to eat, drink, take home, and buy as gifts. 

It was kind of hard to pick where to eat and then even more difficult to pick what to eat once I picked the place.


But the very last place, SK Provisions had pork tacos and I couldn’t resist…



Clearly, they were good…


The best part: once you got your food you could go sit out on the patio outside or in the “dining room” in the main area. And if you are with friends, everyone can pick their food of choice and then all meet up to eat together.

I will most definitely be back and if you are in Denver you should try it too!
