so we’ve been up to lots. as usual. and this past weekend was no different. we had some great friends come in to town. they’re also known as the deckards. others even call them matt and brittyru. mr. hutch and i thought long and hard about drugging them and forcing them to live here forever, but ultimately decided not to.
despite those naughty thoughts, we had a great time. especially on saturday night. that’s ’cause we went exploring in the ‘hood.
it all started with some other friends of ours – who are fabulously adventurous and live not too far. they had told us about this
bar, actually i believe lounge is the appropriate term, also not too far from where we live. the horizon lounge to be exact. so when i got a text asking if we were up for a little taste of the “real park hill” i thought, the deckards are in town, perfect! i responded we were in and that we had outtatown friends tagging along. the response? “ok, but tell them no colors, no gang signs, and no backwards hats. i’m not trying to get stabbed on a saturday night.”
done and done and off we went.
i’m not going to lie. it was a little out of my comfort zone and the signage out front certainly added to the whole, “what am i getting myself into and where the heck am i!? – oh yea six blocks north of my house.”
i won’t even try and describe what the experience was like because i’m not that good with words and i’d rather you just experience it for yourself .
but -you should know by then end of the night we were chummy with the bartender, i found a new appreciation for fake red carnations used as decorating scheme, and i more than ever appreciated both our friends who get us into these adventures and the ones willing to tag along.
so deckards – tho i know we did a lot of other fun “normal” denver stuff (mountains breweries yada yada yada), you should know you are probably the only guests here at bungalowhutch we would ever explore the ‘hood with. and that my friends is a compliment. so thanks for being those friends.
oh and come back to denver. duh.
pssst – about the picture above. no that is not us going to the horizon. it’s just the only picture i have of us from the weekend.
