We also had friends from Florida staying with us last week. Their daughter was attending a Physician Assistant Continuing Education program in Denver, and as her husband is a Navy pilot on assignment, our friends babysat for her little girl at our house. We enjoyed their visit very much, and although the weather did not cooperate for a few days. we were able to do some some local sightseeing with them. We brought them to nearby Red Rocks Amphitheater--always a beautiful place to see
My husband and I both had early June birthdays, so we celebrated at a dinner, courtesy of our daughter and son-in-law, at The Broker Restaurant, located at 821 17th Street in Denver, Colorado. It is a classic, elegant steakhouse located in the basement area of what was once the Denver National Bank Building. To enter the restaurant's main dining area, you walk through the original 100 year old old vault door and sit in one of the private cherry wood booths that bank customers once used to view the content of their safe deposit boxes. It was a very unique and romantic setting! As our appetizer, we shared the signature shrimp bowl, which was a pound of large "peel and eat" Gulf shrimp, and we each had a delightful iceberg wedge salad and shared a side of decadent lobster mac and cheese. My husband had prime rib served with au jus and a horseradish sauce along with a Yorkshire pudding, I had the signature "Tournedos Oscar," which was two beef fillets and a crab cake.with asparagus. We shared a delicious tiramisu for dessert. It was a wonderful meal and a memorable way to celebrate!
We also attended the U2 concert at the Pepsi Center in Denver as a birthday gift to each other. It was a remarkable concert with many special staging effects. Bono, the lead singer, had been seriously injured in a bicycle accident in Central Park in New York City, which had delayed the band's concert schedule for over a year. He told everyone that the first two people who had helped him after the accident in the park were two ladies who were visiting NYC from Denver, and they were both in attendance in this concert.
So, as you can see, it has been happy and busy times for us the past few weeks! I hope the end of Spring has also been a good one for you.
