Don't expect anything earth shattering. You live in what's becoming the craft beer center of the world.

Where about are you staying in Denver? How much free time do you have? Will you have a car?

Did you already book a hotel? If not, I recommend the Magnolia, they have free beer in the evening and free breakfast that is pretty good. It's really nice and great location downtown. My wife and stay there for special evenings and such.

If you want to try beer, it's the city for it. My favorite brewery is Strange Craft, they are phenomenal (HMU and I'll join you). You should probably also take a hike to red rocks amphitheater, and better to catch a show there.

Night-life; depends what you are looking for. Here is a map I made of some of my favorite places (and places I still need to try): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1GK...iQ&usp=sharing
If you have any questions about specific cuisine, how to get around, etc.. Let me know.

Tampa is becoming the craft beer center of the world? That's news to me...

Anyway, go to RMNP if you have time (it's an hour drive) as it is absolutely stellar in that area. Find some good BBQ and mexican foods. Beer in Colorado is awesome, check out great divide, I really like that one. If you have time, rent a Jeep and find some trail to drive up. If you're willing to drive a ways, go check out Pikes Peak and Garden of the Gods in CO Springs. Go a little ways west to Vail if you want to feel like a poor. Hanging lake is super cool too. There are a lot of mapped scenic byways you can drive too.

Long story short, I found that everything cool in Denver is actually outside of Denver.

I saw a guy commit suicide within 20 minutes of landing last time I was in Denver. So, don't do that.

Red Rocks is a must, I don't care who is playing, just go.
Great Divide has some fantastic beer and the brewey tour is a lot of fun. Get some Oak Aged Yeti
Head to Boulder for a day and climb the Flat Irons. It's a mildly challenging hike and the payoff is more than worth it.

Damn! I guess shouldn't be surprised, the suicide rate in Colorado is higher than car fatalities. http://www.dailycamera.com/boulder-c...ities-colorado

It's a work trip, but I will have my nights completely free, and I'll have a full saturday and sunday with no work.

I've heard I must go to redrocks no matter who is there... So I looked and the only non-sold out show is some house music DJs, soooo not sure if I'll actually go to a show, but will they just let you in to check the place out during the day with no show?

cow, I LOVE great divide's yeti will definitely make it there.

Yessir... Cigar City really started it all, Tampa area ranked in the top 5 fastest growing craft brewery locations in the country.

I second the Magnolia. Once i stayed there, i book it every time i'm in Denver. Cool building, great staff.

The first time we checked in we saw they had cookies at the front desk. We went upstairs, got cleaned up and went out for dinner. When we passed the front desk we saw all the cookies were gone. My wife asked them if they were going to put out more and they said they didn't have anymore. She looked sad and said she was looking forward to after dinner cookies.

When we got back to our room, there was a bucket of ice with 5 16oz bottles of milk. (skim, 2%, whole, 2% chocolate and whole chocolate) with a box of cookies from a local bakery. They sent someone out to the bakery to pick that stuff up for us.

We've stayed there 4 times now and every time is great.

Nah, can't make it. I've been travelling for work the past two weeks and want to stay home this weekend. Gotta spend some time with the puppy. Are you going to go or just sending the wife?

Weather in Duluth changes every 10 minutes, it could very well be a beautiful day.

Nope, she got there yesterday. Good to know about the weather, it's like FL i guess. She's the least neurotic woman i know except when it comes to checking the weather on race day.


Boosted.... If you looking for pizza one night, check out Two Fisted Mario's just off of 16th street mall. (between 16th and 17th on Market) Good pie last time i was there.

Yea, you can explore Red Rocks during the day when there is no concert happening. Get on the stage and stand where lots of famous musicians have performed.

I like going to baseball parks whenever i'm traveling. The rockies are a cheap ticket if they're playing.
