A Weekend Recap3:09:00 PM
As I mentioned in my previous post, my "aunties" (my mom's best friends from law school) came to town for a quick weekend trip. I've known them pretty much my entire life and consider both of them family. Having them in town was a nice treat considering they both live on the other side of the country. We had an amazing time catching up and being tourists in Denver with them. On Friday, we explored the Denver Botanic Gardens (which is currently featuring the breathtakingly beautiful Chihuly exhibit), had a delicious dinner on the patio of Bistro Vendome, and had cocktails with a spectacular view of the Rockies at Peaks Lounge. Sounds like a pretty amazing day right?
The Denver Botanic Garden is amazing. Nestled next to Cheeseman Park and Congress Park, the 24 acre urban gardens hosts a wide variety of flora. Its easy to spend an entire afternoon wandering the grounds.
After finishing dinner, our next stop was Peaks Lounge, a cocktail lounge on the 27th floor of the Hyatt Regency in Downtown Denver. The drinks were so-so but their prices were pretty reasonable and the views of the city and the mountains were spectacular.
We had an amazing time together and I'm so happy that Megan and Vicky were able to visit (even though it was way too short of a stay). Fingers crossed they'll be back sooner rather than later.
