Weekend Getaway: Denver and Beyond

April 22 , 2012 by: Hong Favorites, Places

This past weekend I was lucky enough to spend some girl time with a couple of my besties and their families in Denver. Rachel and I spent the day in nearby Boulder, Louisville and Lafayette. I was also able to photograph Robin’s miracle baby and will be posting some baby love later this week!

Here’s my guide to Denver. First stop: Snooze for brunch. Must have the Pineapple Upside Down Pancakes.

That’s Rach. Isn’t she adorbs?

dBar is also a must. Although known for their desserts, lunch was absolutely divine at Keegan Gerhard & Lisa Bailey’s culinary sanctuary. I had the Southernfried waffle. Yup, chicken and waffles never tasted or looked so blissful.

And we couldn’t leave without dessert. Molten cake with valrhona manjari 64% chocolate, summer cherries, and sicilian pistachio ice cream. WOW. WOW. WOW.

We rounded off our culinary experience in Denver at Steuben’s for dinner.

Talk about a local hang out. Our wait was 45mins and well worth every second. I had the lobster roll with some of the most delicious fries ever. Follow up dinner with the wacky apples. It will make you feel like you’ve entered heaven.

What’s food without shopping? I’ll round out my visit to Denver with some great hotspots in Boulder, Louisville and Lafayette in the next couple of days!

  • Baked macaroni and cheese is a classic and it's even better with that crispy cheese crust right from the oven. #bakedmacaroniandcheese #macaroniandcheesebaked #macandcheese #bakedmacandcheese
