Last Tuesday my husband, my brother, and I walked for food in the Bluebird district of Colfax Avenue, between York and Colorado. Near the end, I took this picture in Mezcal, and no, I was not drunk at this point. I just couldn’t manage to shoot the bar without getting the bartender too.Mezcal bar with shoulder Denver July 2009

We had visited 10 bars/restaurants at this point, including The Shoppe, one of our earliest stops.The Shoppe Colfax Denver July 2009

Apparently the autofocus in my camera thought it was a good idea to focus on his fingernails. Or maybe I just don’t know how to use focus lock.

In the category of “torturing my husband with his favorite foods when he’s at work and can’t get them,” I present this picture of Steve’s Snappin’ Dogs, where we each got lemonade (house-made) and half a dog.Steve's Snappin Dogs Colfax Denver July 2009


Feeling sad that you missed it? Go to LoDo Bites instead on August 18. I seem to recall hearing about similar festivals in Uptown and Highlands, though I can’t recall the details at the moment. I will post more information when I get it.

    Enough! Stop the torture! This is cruel and unusual punishment! Where’s Amnesty International when you need them?

    That is certainly a busy looking wall in your first picture. 🙂

    I don’t know if Amnesty does hot dog runs.
