Denver New Years Eve

16th Street Mall

New Years Eve AND the last weekend before we take off ‘officially’ on our Adventure in a Backpack.  We went out for sushi then rode the light rail into downtown Denver.  We stopped off at the Convention Center where there was definitely something going on, but we were not sure what.  I’ll tell you this though, the girls walking around were NOT dressed for the 4 degree weather, but I’m not judging, they were stylish, we were warm; it was a win-win situation!  After leaving the convention center we meandered our way in a general west direction stopping off at a few side streets to take a few pictures here and there.  We stopped in the “Back East” bar and grill for a drink and to warm up a bit.  After hanging out there for a half hour and listening to a VERY white guy do a surprisingly good cover of ‘Rappers Delight’ by The Sugarhill Gang, we continued our hike west.  After a few more streets and a few more photo ops, we found ourselves at World of Beer.  The clock struck midnight and we went outside to take some pictures of the fireworks.  Tip: The fireworks fire off from somewhere the area of 16th and California, by the convention center…the exact opposite way we were going.  Needless to say, we didn’t get any good pictures of the fireworks.  After finishing up some bratwurst sliders and some drinks at World of Beer, we headed further west to Union Station to catch the train back home.  We had a great time and are looking forward to 2016.  2015…don’t let the door hit you on the way out. 😉

There’s the sparknotes of our new years eve, now for the pictures.
