My Brother's Bar. 15th and Platte next to REI. One of the only real bars left in Denver. The Johnny Burger rocks. Great garden patio.

The cruise room is a cool bar in the Oxford Hotel

New place called Roosevelt just opened. It is a cocktail bar at 15th and Larimer St

Mayan exhibit at Denver Science Museum at City Park - will need a car

The Denver Art Museum currently has an exhibit of Contemporary Artists -can walk from where you are

If you have a car, Washington Park will be full of women on Saturday afternoon if the weather stays nice. Good place to go for a scenic jog

http://www.denvermicrobrewtour.com/

They have a tour on Saturday

You can also cross the pedestrian bridge at around 15th or 16th Street that crosses the river and I-25 and there are some good restaurants/bars in the Highlands neighborhood within a few blocks of the bridge.

Sams #3 is downtown and good for breakfast. Snooze is good for breakfast but long lines and next door to homeless shelter.

That should keep you busy for a day.

Always wanted to go to this indoor go karts

http://unserracing.com/

Not too far from downtown.

If you are into seafood Jax's Fish House is really good. Their happy hour specials are pretty decent.

X2. Great place.
Also the Buckhorn Saloon.
If you go west a little to Evergreen, go to Cactus Jacks. Best burger I ate in Colorado.

GB fish and chips on Broadway. Cool place to go at night. pub style atmosphere

Tacos ye salsa east on colfax for some good cheap tacos get the chips and guacamole and steak tacos.

Breakfast I prefer delectable egg on court street less busy than snooze and less douche bags to deal with.

People watching on the 16th street mall is always fun.

Check what is going on at the Denver convention center? If nothing else go check out the big blue bear

Molly brown house is down there never been but always wanted to check it out.

Go to golden and tour coors?

Tamayo for a nice dinner or Capitol grill

Go have dinner at the Denver aquarium and eat fish in front of the fish

Tons of bars and music venues


Denver museum by city park

If it is hot you can go across the bridge to little man ice cream

REI is a cool place to go walk around and go down by the river
