JetBlue #AYCJ: Day three – Denver, CO

September 21, 2009 at 8:36 am 1 comment

My third JetBlue All You Can Jet pass day was lame in the morning and perfectly low key in the evening.  I had a 4am pickup from SuperShuttle to take me to Dulles, which meant I got up at 3:30am.  Ugh.  The SuperShuttle was really nice though.  They picked me up right at my friend’s front door and dropped me off at the JetBlue check-in for much less money than a taxi.  The van was clean and not too crowded, and the driver was polite.  I got there way early though.  Oh well – better safe than sorry.

The flight was uneventful for the most part.  The flight attendant was super cheerful and asked how many AYCJ folks were on the flight (about half a dozen!).  I got a little sleep but was awoken by a little kid a few rows back singing “Do Re Mi” from Sound of Music.  *sigh* 


My friend, with her two adorable little girls in tow, picked me up at the airport.  She drove us to Golden, Colorado.  We had a picnic at the park and then played with kids a bit.  They’re seriously soooo cute!

After a bit, we walked along the river to the Coors brewery.  The walk was really nice – the path is really nice, and there are lots of interesting things to look at along the way.  The brewery tour was slightly lame – they have you listen to a headset instead of having a live guide.  That said, it was nicely put together and well thought out.  There was a spot for a small sample halfway through, and then a nice area to sit while enjoying your (up to) 3 samples at the end.  I had a Killians, a super cold Coors Light, and a Blue Moon.  And yes, we really took a 14 month old and 3 year old with us.  And they were adorable.  🙂

For dinner, we met up with a couple more friends at Woody’s Woodfired Pizza.  I had the all you can eat pizza, soup, and salad buffet and a Fat Tire, a fab local beer ($17).  I really liked the cheesy potato soup, and there was a good selection of pizza too.  This is a pretty good deal if you’re in the area, and you might get lucky and hit a beer special like we did.  Afterwards a couple of us went to watch a bit of one friend’s softball game.  I was so zonked that we didn’t make it through the whole thing, but it was still cool to see the local residents in their normal routines.  It seems like there are a ton of really fun – and very athletic – people in the greater Denver area.

Shuttle $33 + DC postcards $2.08 + Denver postcards $2.05 + dinner $17 = $54.13 for the day; $67.73 total for 3 days.  By the way, my darling husband won some money at the casino on our Baltic cruise, so he agreed I could spend $600 on my trip instead of $400.  Whew!
