After doing some social shit on Sunday, Monday was all about hanging out with just the family. We thought about going to Nederland, but the thing with Nederland is that it’s a bit of a drive (about an hour each way) and we usually end up going all the way out there and don’t do much but walk around a little, ride the carousel (which is fantastic), and go to the barbecue place to eat tofu and sweet potato fries and drink IPA (which is awesome). The thing is, though, when you live in Denver, you don’t need to drive an hour to walk around a little, eat good food, and drink good beer.
So we went to Wash Park for swings and dipping feet in the water. Then we got takeout from Jerusalem (Warning: cheesy website that plays music and you can’t stop it), which is fantastic. I could roll around in a vat of baba ghanouj (or however you wanna spell it) because I love it so much. I proposed having a week where we eat and drink only things that start with the letter “b.” So baba ghanouj and baklava, which, holy shit is the best thing in the entire world. Beets, bananas, berries. Beer. Bcoffee. We took our takeout and some beer from home to Observatory Park, which I suspect is the nicest place in Denver. It’s a small park with picnic tables and a playground and there are toys you can play with that just . . . stay there. And I guess nobody steals them. It’s a fancy neighborhood. (No really I busted out my Zillow app and houses are near or over $1 million.) Around here, the toy trucks at the park would get jacked or have gang signs spray painted all over them. Oh well.
In other exciting news, Ben has a remix of Hearts by Psychobuildings that’s available on iTunes. It’s here (it’s the Discmann & Sixtraxx remix). This is awesome and you should buy it but please know that if you do, Sixtraxx doesn’t get any money as a result. Artists are totally oppressed in our society.
