Now that I am somewhat back into the swing of things, let’s start recapping my trip to Colorado! My boyfriend and I visited Denver, Fort Collins, Boulder, Silverthorne, and Breckenridge in the span of a week. We were busy, but we had a ton of fun. We ate lots of delicious food (a lot of it unhealthy, but that is okay!), we drank many cold beers, and we experienced so many of the great things that Colorado has to offer.
Let’s start with a recap of our first two days in Denver.The boyfriend and I started out on our 8 hour adventure across the entire state of Nebraska and into Colorado bright and early on Saturday morning.
Jeremy and I stayed at his aunt and uncle’s house in Denver. Our first night there we went to dinner with them at True Food Kitchen.
About an hour later, Jeremy and I headed to the Cherry Cricket for a drink.
After our Farmer’s Market experiences, we ate lunch at Watercourse Foods. I received recommendations for this all vegan restaurant from several people, so I knew that I had to try it out! We shared the seitan wings (half buffalo, half bbq) with ranch dressing…
Sunday evening we headed to Great Divide for a couple of beers and a brewery tour. While I definitely enjoy beer, you are going to notice that my boyfriend really enjoys it. He loves craft beer the way that I love good vegan/vegetarian food!
Our dinner plans for that evening included another highly recommended restaurant: Hops and Pie.
I think Jeremy’s had red sauce, goat cheese, artichokes, caramelized onions, and brisket on it. Whatever it was, he sure seemed to like it!
I went a little more non-traditional with my pizza and ordered their blackberry bbq sauce, goat cheese (they ran out of the vegan cheese I was originally planning to order), spinach, artichokes, caramelized onions, tomatoes, and pineapple. It definitely had the sweet/savory thing going on, which I really loved. Next time I think that I would add the seitan chorizo for some heat.
There is Saturday and Sunday for ya! Lot of delicious eats, refreshing drinks, and good times for all! I’ll be back with my second Colorado update later this week.
