    and I haven't been to my favorite city in 10 years. Any places I should visit?

    Get some green chile before and after the game. Plenty of good places across the entire city

    Pack your longjohns. It's going to be chilly on Saturday.

    Box me up a gift box from the microbrewery at Coors Field. I miss that place.

    Illegal Pete's. Couple blocks from Coors.
  6. My Brothers Bar, reasonably close to Coors Field, serves a mean burger and great pastrami sandwiches. Wazee Super Club, also close to the stadium, has great beers on tap and good pizza.

    Can't vouch for the pizza, but try the 90 Shilling at Wazee. It's good stuff (as are all the other Odell brews I had in Denver.)

    My home state.

    For a good pregame meal (not great meal, but great margs, which will keep you warm): Hit The Rio downtown (Google Rio Grande and Denver).

    For a good postgame brew: Taphouse. Haven't been there in years, but they have TONS of beer on tap.

    At the game: Go to the Sandlot brewery. It's where Blue Moon was created and is a good place to catch an inning.

    Good food: Cherry Cricket for a burger and beer. They used to have some sort of randomizing function for their burgers where they throw darts at toppings on a dartboard. Good times.

    Good hangover burrito: Sams No. 3. Get the breakfast burrito. You're welcome.

    Good breakfast by the stadium: Snooze. Get some form of pancakes.

    Sushi: Gotten lots of recommendations for Sushi Sasa. It's downtown and I heard it's great, though I'm not super high on sushi (like it, just never seems to be worth the coin).

    BW is right: Illegal Pete's is a cool joint. Good burritos in the same vein as Chipotle and QDoba.

    Very jealous.

    No, better, and here's why: They MIX everything together before they roll the burrito. It's the one thing Chipotle/Qdoba, etc. get wrong. Love those places otherwise, but Pete's has them beat for that reason alone.

    Also, I'd be remiss if I didn't advise you to go to Wynkoop Brewery and get a Railyard. Man, those were gooooood.

    Yeah, pretty much any brewpub near that stadium is delicious. Never been to Wynkoop, unfortunately.

    And Illegal Pete's is tremendous for a lot of reasons.. Mixing one, but they have better ingredients as well. I love all Colorado-style burritos (I have no idea if this originated in CO, but I know Chipotle did, so I'm taking ownership of it).

    What's the name of the bar that is a Red Wings hang out?

    When the Avs-Wings rivalry was more prominent, I remember that Wings fans in Denver would always go there since it has Wings jerseys and the like hanging up.

    Be sure to have some Rocky Mountain Oysters. They sell 'em at a concession stand down in the left field corner at Coors.
