Thursday March 22nd, was the last day of the business meeting in Denver. The meeting ended at noon and my flight was not scheduled to leave until 5:55pm. I went up to my room to pack my bag and get ready to leave, when I decided to check www.flavortownUSA.com to see if there was another nearby spot that I might be able to convince AJ to drive to before going to the airport. Sure enough, “Bang!” www.bangdenver.com was about 9 miles west of the Double Tree. It didn’t take much convincing to get AJ and Lynn up for one last Triple D adventure. I think I’ve made Triple D converts of them!
We plugged the address into the GPS and drove past downtown on the highway and past Mile High Stadium, and exited off into the quaint little Victorian neighborhood where we found “Bang!” around 1:45pm. First impression was that it was a cool little building. Look in the front window and you see the kitchen. Not tables and patrons, but the staff cooking. Cool. A sign on the front window directs patrons to a narrow alleyway between buildings where the entrance is in the back patio. That’s very cool. There were a few people sitting out back in the patio and we were asked by the host if we wanted sit inside or outside. Even though it was nice outside, the indoor seating looked really interesting with artwork and colorful décor. We seemed to arrive just after the lunch rush as there was a large party who left soon after we sat down. We pretty much had the place to ourselves and I was diggin’ the vibe of the place “Indie rock” music was playing on the radio in the background. I heard Vampire Weekend and the Shins being played as well as a few other cool new bands.
Our young waitress was very friendly and attentive. Lynn ordered the Po Boy sandwich and said it was very good. She liked the soft bread and shrimp cooked just right. AJ got a gluten free menu and ordered salmon served on a bed of rice, which he thoroughly enjoyed.
