As Denver natives there are certain things only we understand that others might not get. Like this list for example.
like Shawn responded I didn't know that someone able to make $6367 in one month on the internet....
I loved the Fun House at Lakeside, wasn't scary to me at all. Especially liked the "monkey cage" inside that everyone grabbed the center pole and then it spun around and threw you against the sides. Best view of Denver from Lookout Mtn was inside of Sam's with a pitcher of beer in your hand. The drive down the hill, not so much fun.
And definitely sitting in the Birthday Box (or having a sibling that did) on the Fred and Faye Clubhouse!
I get teary,I know, silly. Just homesick. You can take the girl out of CO just can't take CO out of the girl.
Don't have to be born and raised in Denver. I wasn't, and I know more than half of them. 'Course I lived there for 17 years.
Going to Casa Bonita was punishment. Had friends working there when it opened. Loved to tell me about spitting in food and getting groped in the grotto. I remember when it did snow and the snow would be dirty from cinders instead of Magnesium Chloride and sand. Six to eight inches was just "oh, it snowed." Now one inch is news for days. Went to concerts, baseball and football games in Bears stadium. Chubby's wasn't built yet.
I am 54 years old born and raised in Denver Colorado. Who remembers the runways over I-70 just before the dog food smell?
I do...born 6-17-76 and love it here!!! Remember we loved it when the planes would go over as we went under!!!
Fantastic photo Aron. What a trip it was to drive under that runway as the plane was landing! Great experience!
Well, first of all, not every Denver native is a Broncos fan, and some of us do like all the food at Casa Bonita,
I was in Denver 2 years ago and saw this. Lol. Awesome place to visit. I'm from Nova Scotia. I got to see the Broncos whip the 49ers and saw Manning beat the all time TD record. I hope to return in the near future
It was helpful.Thanks for sharing.It looks great. http://www.heatwavedenver.net/
the smell in town from the stock show... And the roaring rumbling sound rolling along the front Range when Bandimere had the jet cars drag racing
The one thing I remember fondly is the annual Christmas display at the City and County of Denver building...was up until the January stock show.
I never knew Blinky's fun club and Tom Shane were local... Education through Facebook, who would have guessed?
Now living in Europe this brought nostalgia to my heart and tears to my eyes having grown up in Denver in the 60s through the 80s. Corny but true. \U0001f602
Most people don't know that the Demon horse is cursed, it killed its designer while being put together!!!
