Denver Airport, masstransfusion

Jun 19, 2008 by

I guess once you figure it out, Denver Airport is not all that confusing a place, but really, it took a while.  From what in Texas we would call Terminal C, they call it Concourse C, you get on a train and ride to the Terminal.  That's after you go down three flights of escalators with your bags, etc.  If you're picking up checked bags, you have to go all the way to the Terminal to get them.  Then to get to a rental car, you can either go out of the building to the left or to the right and you get to a bus that will take you to your car.  Hertz, I can honestly say, has got a pretty good system here.  My car was even featured with a mini-marque over it with my name on it. 

For lunch, and it was a late one, (because of the morning storms in Dallas, I got to DAL at 7 for my 830 flight and didn't leave Dallas until 1040 a.m., stopped in OKC, then flew on to DEN) it was about 2 p.m. Dallas time when I finally got to eat.  Now where would a good Southern boy go for lunch in Denver?  You guessed it, Famous Daves. I'd never been there before but the food was good.  The ribs were very good, and they take you through this exercise of their five or six sauces and how you can blend them, etc. 

Obama would do well at this restaurant because I was "honeyed," "darlin'ed" "sweetied" "deared" etc. 

My hotel?  The Table Mountain Inn, the oldest hotel in Golden, CO, and wow, it sure is nice.  Rooms are roomy, with fridge, two tables, a balcony, ceiling fan, AC of course, plenty of chairs, and a rustic Western Indian/Spanish theme.  Its very nice and I'd certainly recommend staying here, and I've only been here a couple hours.  The view of the mountains is very nice, temp isn't too bad outside, and you feel like you're in a tourist trap as rustic as the city looks.  Haven't been to any shops though, so we'll have to see.

Okay, I need a nap.  It's been a long day.  It shouldn't take 10 hours to get from Dallas to Denver.  Except driving, which would take even longer, but you get my point I'm sure.
