    Planning a short road trip, mostly to see the Rockies and Sky Sox play, but will also have some time to kill. I'll have most of Friday in Denver, and possible Friday night after the game (haven't decided yet). Any suggestions on what to do? Bonus points if it's cheap. Super bonus points if it's free and I don't have to drive there. I'm planning to stay at a hostel nearish Coors Field.

    1.) Kill John Elway

    2.) Rest easy in knowing you've bettered the world.

    3.) Drink for free in Cleveland and IJAGville all the rest of your years.

    If you really have nothing better to do, find out what kind of drugs the architects were on with the decor at Denver International Airport.

    Check out a Warren Zevon CD for Things to Do in Denver When You're Dead. (Or John Elway's dead)

    Bonus points if you can teach the Broncos' offensive line to actually block instead of chopping out knees.

    I called up my friend LeRoy on the phone
    I said, Buddy, I'm afraid to be alone
    I got some weird ideas in my head
    About things to do in Denver when you're dead

    I was working on a steak the other day
    I saw Waddy in the Rattlesnake Cafe
    Dressed in black, tossing back a shot of rye
    Finding things to do in Denver when you die

    You won't need a cab to find a priest
    Maybe you should find a place to stay
    Some place where they never change the sheets
    And you just roll around Denver all day

    LeRoy says there's something you should know
    Not everybody has a place to go
    And home is just a place to hang your head
    And dream up things to do in Denver when you're dead

    You won't need a cap to find a priest
    Maybe you should find a place to stay
    Some place where they never change the sheets
    And you jut roll around Denver all day
    You just roll around Denver all day

    Lots of good brewpubs, etc., in LoDo. Wyncoop is good, the Breckenridge Brew Pub is right by the stadium (touristy, but crowded and fun) and lots of other restaurants/souvineer shops, etc., on Blake Street. Several have nice outdoor rooftop bars.

    There's a nice pedestrian mall just south and east of the stadium about 6-7 blocks.

    Go up in the rotunda of the capitol. Great view from the observation deck.

    If you do get a car, Buffalo Bill's grave is up in Golden, as is Annie Oakley's, the Coors Brewery and a great downtown drugstore that's closing but neat to tour.

    Red Rocks is amazing.

    Go to Red Rocks... It's amazing even if there isn't a show going on...

    Hang out with Javon Walker. Try not to get shot...

    I enjoyed Pints Pub as a good bar to drink at.

    Drive up to Boulder... look around... walk inside the Hotel Boulderado ... drive up into the Flatirons and look out over the city... walk through Folsom Field....

    Red Rocks. If a concert's there, go see it and get there early to get quality seating. If not, Films on the Rocks is always a good time on a nice night. (Tonight's movie is Wedding Crashers, BTW!)

    Also, in Sedalia (just south of the city) is the Cherokee Ranch and Castle.

    For a good pint of micro, hit Falling Rock Tap House on Blake Street after a Rockies game.

    Take Bob Seger's advice and Get Out of Denver

    I still remember it was autumn and the moon was shining
    Our 60 Cadillac was roaring through Nebraska whining
    Doing 120 man the fields was bending over
    Heading up for the mountains knowing we was traveling further
    All the fires were blazing and the spinning wheels were turning turning
    Had my girlfriend beside me, brother, she was burning burning

    I walked up back to speak to this southern funky school teacher
    She had a lot of something heavy but we couldn't reach her
    We told her that we needed something that would get us going
    She pulled out all she had and laid it on the table showing
    All I had to do was lay my money down and pick it up
    The cops came busting in and then we lit out in a pickup truck

    Go! Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
    Get out of Denver, baby, go
    Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
    Get out of Denver cause you look just like a commie
    And you might just be a member
    Better get out of Denver
    Better get out of Denver

    Well, all red lights were flashing and the sirens were screaming screaming
    We had to pinch each other just to see if we were dreaming
    Made it to lovely Pass in under less than half an hour
    Lord, it started drizzling and it turned into a thundershower, oh!

    The rain was driving but the Caddy kept on burning rubber
    We kept on driving till we ran into some fog cover
    We couldn't see a thing but somehow we just kept on going
    We kept on driving all night long and then into the morning
    Fog had finally lifted when we looked to see where we was at
    We're staring at Colorado state policeman trooper cat

    Go! Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
    Get out of Denver, baby, go
    Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
    Get out of Denver cause you look just like a commie
    And you might just be a member
    Better get out of Denver
    Better get out of Denver

    Go! Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
    Get out of Denver, baby, go
    Get out of Denver, baby, go, go
    Get out of Denver cause you look just like a commie
    And you might just be a member
    Better get out of Denver
    Better get out of Denver
