Sometimes it's good to know a successful lawyer... at least socially! ...especially when his firm has box seat tickets to Rockies games.
Scott was kind enough, and extremely generous, to host myself and two of his motorcycle buddies to dinner and a game while I was in Denver.
We started out with a delicious Pinot (and cigars) in the Churchill Room of the Brown Palace hotel (above). The Brown Palace is one of those classic, beautiful old hotels that anchor the historic past of a city. A couple shots from the inside:
Here's the guys after a cigar... a motorcycle gang in the exclusive Churchill Room! Lawyers these days...
and the mural found in the Churchill Room which fascinated me...
Then it was over to the Ship Tavern (in the hotel) for a wonderful dinner... the best prime rib and the best trout in Denver. Finishing dinner coincided with a dwindling thunderstorm (boy, was Denver clobbered by lightning and rain while I was there), so it was off to the ball game.
Entrance into a MLB ballpark is a spiritual moment for me... and Coors Field is beautiful park.
Great seats! Right closeup... and a shot of Prince Fielder of the Brewers.
Then there was the sunset from the ballpark... yep, Denver and the west are the best.
A great night... the Rockies won and I got my home run (although by the Brewers). Thanks again to Scott for his generosity.
