I ordered a flight of 3 beers for $3.50–that’s almost free! I debated getting the beer that’s flavored with roasted bull testicles (no joke) but decided on the Belgorado, Mile HIPA, and Colorojo.
The next day I had brunch with my old college roommate–yay, the memories!–and dragged her ass around Denver in search of Denver Beer Company. She claimed she didn’t mind walking the 1.3 miles to watch me drink beer even though she had been up since 6am to catch a flight in. That’s a good friend.
The Denver Beer Company was awesome, even more so because they allowed dogs in the bar. Dogs, in a bar! How awesome is that? They also had board games but I was too busy drinking and petting random pooches.
Another flight for super cheap. Light IPA (Yang), Dark IPA (Yin), Keffir Lime (not my style), and Summer Ale (yum). Then I took a nap, showered, and got ready for the wedding–woohoo! I used a hair tutorial from The Small Things Blog with some tweaks of my own and my I was set. I got several compliments on my hair so it must have looked like it took more than 10 minutes to do. Fooled ya, suckas!The bride asked me to do a reading at the wedding, which I was honored to do. I managed not to trip up the stairs to the microphone and deliver my reading almost flawlessly. Go me, go marriage, yay love!
Insert obligatory beautiful centerpiece photo here. Pretty, right?
To amp up the fun, there was a photo booth with ski props. Since the last time I’d been to Colorado, I came home with a torn ACL, I thought it only fitting that I show those badass mountains who’s boss and go skiing in the spring, in an evening dress and heels. Take that, mountains!
All good things must come to an end and so did the wedding and the weekend…but not the beer. I managed to imbibe some more local brews at the Denver airport. First Boulder Beer with breakfast–go ahead and judge!
Then I found an Odell Myrcenary Double IPA to top off the weekend. It was so good that I almost missed my flight. For real.
