We’d been informed that we all had tickets to a “surprise show” for my Dad’s birthday. As we approached the decrepit old Heritage Square amusement park with it’s vaudeville-style music hall we braced for the worst, but ended up having a pretty good time. Drinks were served, which is key for this venue. The show is a shameless nostalgic sing-along, but pulled off with unexpectedly good musicianship, acting, and improvisation. The off-the-cuff involuntary audience participation gags were pretty funny. We didn’t try the buffet dinner, but as a package it’s probably the cheapest way to have a meal and see a live show in Denver.

I hear you, but a lot of time it boils down to appreciating your friends and family, and much of that just wouldn’t happen without these events. I’ve been frustrated that the summer is slipping by without enough outdoor life, but I don’t really regret doing these things either. In the past I’ve ignored these things and done more of what I want, but ALONE. That’s not always so great either. Maybe there’s a good balance.
wow, i just deleted a huge rant. BE THANKFUL.
I was kind of curious what you’d come up with, tho…
