Chill Day in the Mile High City

After Cade and I’s two days of exploring and being in the mountains, we decided to just have a chill day around the city. It also helped that it was Sunday, so it seemed pretty appropriate to just relax and wander around the city. After sleeping in a bit, our first stop was this local favorite breakfast spot, Syrup. While it was pretty expensive, especially for breakfast, I can see why it’s so popular. It had an upscale but comfy feel, kind of perfect for a Sunday breakfast/brunch, and the food was delicious.20150802_122351






To walk off some of the meal, we checked out the 16th Street Mall, which is this pedestrian street lined with shopping and restaurants, essentially a tourist trap, but it was pretty and  a nice day. Along with the usual for a mall area, there were different activities happening, including chess, rock wall climbing, and paddle boarding.

Next, we headed over to Stranahan’s, one of the local distilleries. Cade and I have been to quite a few breweries during our travels, so when I found out that Denver has some pretty famous whiskey distilleries, we decided to add one to the list. I tried to be open to trying the whiskey and took the guide’s suggestions on how to drink it, but whiskey apparently is just not my thing. While I enjoyed the tour, I won’t be planning on drinking any whiskey anytime soon.

After our tour, we headed for some dinner and to try another of the local ice cream shops, this time Sweet Action. Unlike Little Man, who has a giant milk jug as their building, Sweet Action was in a normal building but had tons of unique flavors, including a Stranahan’s whiskey flavor. Cade had to go for that one since we had just been. I don’t remember now what two flavors I got or the second of Cade’s was, but biscuits and jam was in there and all were delicious.
