The game was great, and so were the seats! We don't often get to sit in the club level! The food is a lot better up there, but I only was really interested in the beer. Dr. Cohen, my immunology professor, raved about Dale's Pale Ale, and went so far as to give one of my classmates a can on their birthday during class. So I was intrigued. Turns out they sell it at the game and I picked one up!
Josh and I split one and we both liked it. It's really hoppy though, and bitter, so if you like your beer super smooth, it's probably not for you. We did like it enough to buy a case of our own though..
The Rockies ended up winning. And that was great, especially the next day when we got 4 tacos for a dollar!
On the actual 4th of July Josh and I started out the day on a loooooooooong bike ride. We took off down the Cherry Creek trail with the intention of getting to the mall and enjoying a drink al fresco before coming home. Well, the trail isn't very well marked and so we ended up pretty much all over the place. All told, I think we went over 20 miles on our mountain bikes. By the time it was done I was pretty tired, but I was glad we took the time to get in such a good work out.
Josh's sister Jordan threw a 4th of July party at her boyfriend's loft, which has a great view of Coors Field downtown. Jordan and Tom cooked up a barbeque and we spent the day hanging around. We all drove up together, which meant Rocky had to fit in too:
Tom had the coolest ice cube tray. It made shot glasses. Nothing tastes better (as far as hard alcohol goes) than a really ice cold shot. If it's not cold, it's just gross. And this little guys did the trick!
After a while Josh's brother Joe, his wife Debbie, and his dad Duane left to go to the Rockies game. Tom's is close enough that we could actually see them in their seats!
After a while we got tired of sitting around so we went for a walk to this really cool creamery that's just down the street from Tom's place. Josh got this great mexican chocolate flavor that was really delicious. And Rocky wished he could have some too
Although the tone of the trip was sad, there were times of fun as well. My parents have a Wii and we spent a whole bunch of time playing with it. The best was when everyone was boxing!
