I spent a good chunk of last week on the road traveling to and from Denver for work. While in the mile high city I had many long evenings in the office and a couple of late nights catching up with old friends. This all led to a decrease in blog entries, however I’m not going to let that happen again this week. As I attempt to get caught up with emails and such, I’ll leave you with a few highlights from my trip.
The first morning I woke up in Denver I was treated to a nice three to four inches of snow! I guess I was due after all my complaining about missing the snow earlier this winter. It really didn’t stick on the roadways and even melted quite a bit on the grass, but it was pretty nonetheless.
I met some old friends at the new to me Strange Brewing Company for a taste of what they had on tap. As much as the brewing scene has expanded in Cincinnati, it seems to have really taken off in Denver and elsewhere in Colorado where the craft scene has always had a strong presence. Strange opened in 2010, and even though I was living in Denver at the time, I never found the time to visit. I’m glad I found the time on this trip.
After visiting Strange for some beers, I headed to Quixote’s to see some other old friends, the guys from SoundRabbit. After seeing roughly 16 of their shows while living in Denver, it was nice to finally catch another show years after my last. They’ve since added a new bass player to the band and just got back from a tour through the middle and eastern states last month. I hear they are planning another tour for later this year, so I’m hoping to see them again soon. It’s always a great time.
