We had no agenda whatsoever for the day so I googled "best coffee in Denver" and ended up going here.
Next, we walked around (people watching) Cheesman Park and decided on the botanical gardens, neither of us have been to it. They had a chihuly exhibit, I want to go back and see everything lit up at night!
It was super hot at the gardens, time for beer!
Denver Beer Company was by the sushi place. They're known for crazy flavored beers: graham cracker porter, basil lavender saison, etc.
Erik and Britt came down from Longmont, along with Joan and Chalie from Boulder(no pics).
The sushi was awesome, they surprised me with birthday green tea ice cream. Thankfully no singing :)
We ended the night with one more brewery, Black Shirt. All of their beer is a variation of a red ale. They even designed a glass for their flagship red:
Thanks for a great birthday Stephanie!
