Trip Report Denver Trip Report - Day 1

Jump to last reply

I recently returned from a girls’ trip to Denver on what was probably the coldest day of the year. However, our 4 days there were great, and hopefully this review gives some helpful tips for a long weekend/ski trip.

We flew in Friday morning and took a cab from Denver International Airport to the Congress Park area where we were staying with a friend. The airport is somewhat removed from the city, so a cab for 2 cost $60, a bit pricy. We met a friend for lunch at Café Bar http://www.cafebarcolorado.com/, and it was delicious! Upscale American food with many local beers to sample. A definite theme of Denver – local, craft beers. I had the Hanger Steak Sandwich, which was excellent. Apparently, they change the menu pretty frequently, but it had a fun vibe.

After lunch, we decided to visit a local brewery, the Great Divide. Coming from the Midwest, I could not believe how cheap craft beers were. We sampled several ($3 = 3 samples). We did not take a tour, but they were offering free brewery tours at 3 and 4 for anyone who was interested. We ended up buying a growler of beer to take home with us and give to our hostess.

After our afternoon of beer tasting, we got ready for dinner at Sushi Sasa http://www.sushisasadenver.com/. The sushi was fantastic! I highly recommend the restaurant. It was crowded, and our host had made a reservation – so I’m not sure how easy it would be to just stop in. However, the sushi really was incredible. The Dragon Roll was a hit: crab, shrimp tempura, eel, avocado and strawberries. The strawberries were a great touch.

Next day… skiing in Breckenridge!
