my two cents…

ms scribe has been following the story of danny and nina…and their move to denver…she’s been telling me about it for weeks…so…please allow me to be the millionth person to say…welcome to denver…as a transplant new yorker…allow me to offer…some unsolicited advice…

so you’re looking for a place to stay…

i’ve lived all over denver…and the best neighborhood i can recommend…is city park…you’ve been over there…if you took a walk around…you might have seen it’s charms…

but definitely stay away from capitol hill…i know…it’s affordable…all the cool kids live there…it’s denver’s version of brooklyn…believe me…it’s no brooklyn…you may have noticed…

[editor’s note: no, the highlands is denver’s brooklyn…capitol hill is denver’s…L.E.S….the baker neighborhood is denver’s…west village…and lodo is…oh fuck it…]

btw…you may also have noticed…a dearth of…um…ethnicities…maybe not…maybe this comforts you…well then, welcome home…

food and drink…

there are plenty of bars in denver…more than a few of them are great bars…i’m sure you’ve already been given a list of…all the hip places…but if i could only recommend one…my pick would be…my brother’s bar…best burgers and beer in town…

that’s an easy one…especially this year…the 50th anniversary of…on the road…

btw…did you know our that esteemed mayor made his bones…in the bar business…i love this town…

culture…

you’ve already been acquainted with westword…good move…if you want to know what’s going on in denver…there’s no better place to start…but…these folks are always good for some of the best events in town

btw…we missed you last night at my buddy’s book reading…

getting around…

coming from new york, you might miss a really good mass transit system…it’s getting better…and you can live here without a car…i managed to make it work for over five years…

btw…if you find yourself trapped in traffic…make sure your radio is tuned to 1190 am…yes, the best music on the airwaves is am…even if you like jazz music
