Cheers to the weekend!
I’m finally back in DC after an exhausting, but productive and fun week in Denver and New York. Don’t get me wrong, I love traveling, but when it’s go-go-go all the time, running around to meetings, eating out every meal, straying from your workout routine, acclimating to different time zones, living out of a suitcase, work stuff piling up in the background… eh, you get to the point where you just want to be at home and CHILL. Alas, it is what it is and I had a great time! Some highlights and things of note:
Glad to be back and am looking forward to catching up with what’s been happening on Tumblr! I’m actually heading down to Charlottesville tomorrow for Amanda’s bridal shower and bachelorette festivities - should be a lot of fun!
Hope everyone is doing well!
Of all the airports I’ve actually flown through, I think Denver is my favorite.
Not only is it the cleanest and easiest to navigate, but I also love the fact that it looks like you’re flying into a giant white circus tent in the middle of the Colorado Plains. It’s awesome!
I’m here this week for work and am hoping I’ll have time to venture out, meet up with a few college friends and explore some parts of Denver I’ve never seen! Fingers crossed…
This is sweet. Every major airport should offer this, don’t ya think?
Vesta Dipping Grill: A dipper’s heaven in Denver
A trip to Mile High City would not be complete without a fancy, fun meal with my college pal and fellow foodie Trevor. Last night, we went to Vesta Dipping Grill right in the heart of downtown, and it was unlike any other restaurant I’ve ever been to. Accompanied by every dish are unique, very flavorful dipping sauces that literally make your mouth water. Yummmm. Here’s what we ordered and LOVED:
Guys, it was phenomenal and I highly recommend trying it if you live in or visit Denver!
I’m actually out here for work. Bummer because I really wish I had more time to explore the area and have some fun - Denver is such a cool city! Oh well, such is life…
I AM going out to dinner with my buddy Trevor tonight! Hopefully the food will be as yummy as our meal at Fruition last time I was out here in May. Man, that was delicious. We shall see.
In keeping with my love of celebrity chef airport restaurants, I just had some breakfast at Wolfgang Puck in Terminal B at DIA. I wasn’t too impressed. Hate to tell ya Wolfy, but Gordon’s Plane Food at Heathrow definitely takes the cake.
Side Thought - why are 80% of my posts about food? It’s kinda gross, actually. Note to self: no food posts for 2 weeks.
A one-chair barber shop in the back of a cigar store and lounge…
If I were a dude and lived in Denver, I’d come here all the time. They say its the best cut and shave in town!
I went to one of the best meals of my entire life last night. Hands down.
My good friend Trevor and his buddy Mike accompanied me to Fruition on 6th Ave and Downing in Denver, CO. It’s a phenomenal quaint little restaurant rated #3 in town with a super awesome menu. In addition to cocktails and crudités, we ate:
I REALLY recommend trying this place next time you’re in the Denver area. Mmm, just thinking about it…
Good morning to you, Denver!
Just boarded a Frontier Air flight to Denver (going on a work trip for the rest of the week) and I’m literally STARVING! Can’t remember the last time I was this hungry.
Airplane food ‘for purchase’ is terrible. Cheddar Cheese Curds? Oi vey… guess beggars can’t be choosers.
Happy Wednesday y’all!
Last night my college buddy Trevor and I had an incredible dinner at Lala’s Wine Bar + Pizzeria in the Capitol Hill area of Denver. Because everything on the menu sounded so good, we just went with whatever the waitress recommended. She knew her stuff. We had:
Everything was delicious and our bill, by DC standards, was DIRT CHEAP. Highly recommend Lala’s if you’re ever in Denver. Great spot.
View of Downtown Denver
This city is beautiful. I haven’t really had any down time since I got here because of work, but I’m looking forward to catching up with a few friends tonight.
Happy Tuesday! 3 more days until the weekend! Is it sad that I’m already counting down? Whatev.
I’m heading out to Denver next week for work and the way my meetings are being scheduled, looks like I’m definitely going to have some time to catch up with a few friends while I’m there. Sahweet!
I’ve only ever been to the Denver airport en route to Beaver Creek and Keystone, so I’m stoked to actually see the city. Anyone have any recommendations?
