Tales from the Road: Patricia’s Trip to Denver
Happy New Year! To celebrate new adventures for 2018, we’re recapping Piñon Grill Bartender Patricia’s recent trip to Denver, Colorado. Take a peek and see if you’re not suddenly salivating to hop a plane and explore the Rocky Mountains for yourself!
Where did you go?
My last trip was to Colorado. I spent time in Denver, saw the Royal Gorge Bridge, hiked in Evergreen, and explored a little bit of Boulder. It was honestly the most beautiful place I have ever been and I can’t wait to go back. As we drove through the canyons the beauty of everything around me was so overwhelming it brought tears to my eyes.
What was your favorite food spot on the trip?
Mexican food is one of my favorite things to eat so my friend took me to a place called Pinche Tacos (I realize that’s a vulgar word and I do apologize!) I think the name is now Tacos Tequila and Whiskey. They had some of the best tacos I have ever had in my life. Whenever I get back to Denver I will be getting some more tacos! Everywhere I ate was really good though. Lucile’s Creole Cafe was a great spot for brunch and their biscuits were to die for! They just give way more food than you can handle.
What was the best thing you did on your trip?
Hiking up the mountain was probably my favorite experience of that trip. Being at the edge of a mountain looking out at everything beneath you is pretty amazing. It was freezing out and covered in ice and snow so it made the hike a bit scary at times, but I’m a little bit of a thrill seeker at heart.
