Ben’s out and about touring Denver by his lonesome today while I labor away at the office. Sometimes (read: most times) that’s the best way to introduce yourself to a new city…alone. You’re free to see the sights, hear the sounds, smell the scents, and ignore the vagrants at your own speed. You do what you want, when you want, with nothing in tow other than purchases (if any) and a camera. I can be a pretty good tour guide when company comes in, but knowing Ben can navigate his own way when I am unable to show him around is a good feeling.
Though, I am pretty stoked to get off work and show him around Golden. I would, however like to get all the way up to the mountains, but with the limited amount of time and the fact that his flight leaves early in the AM, Golden (or Boulder, maybe) will have to suffice. If we did have more time, and bigger guts, I’d say we should attempt the Beaujo’s Challenge – 14 pounds of Colorado Mountain Pizza. Only two are allowed to take it on, and it must be finished within an hour to get $100 and the meal comped. I’ve been going to Beaujo’s for so many years but have never tried, nor seen anyone try, to attempt this. I imagine the scene from the Great Outdoors…the Old 96’r.
Tonight won’t be the night Momentum tries the challenge, but who knows what the future holds? Ben did speak of making a trek to Philly for that challenge. So maybe this could become a theme. Man vs. Food 2 – Blogs Vs. Food.
