Missing NYC - De quelle planete es tu -1Sometimes a summer in New York with besties is all one really needs. I certainly miss some people there constantly, and a few of the treats, too.

I found myself daydreaming today about my summer in New York in 2011. It seems like it was only yesterday…. Iced coffees on the way to work, cupcakes galore, bricks of different colors and rusty fire escapes. It was a summer filled with the best company, discovering somewhere new.

Looks like I need to make a trip back to visit…

Out in the Highlands - De quelle planète es-tu? 1I’ve been thinking about lately how much I love going out on the town in Denver. These pictures were taken on my last trip home for Christmas, and I just have such fond memories with great company in these lovely places.

I’m currently preparing a Denver Guide for the blog, which will have a list of all of my favorite Denver spots: from sweets to tapas to a damn good brew.

Stay tuned, folks.

Sometimes all you need is a damn good taco smothered with queso and green chili and a variety of so many other delicious things. Luckily in Denver we have a lot of options… but nothing is quite like Pinches.

Pinche Tacos  was originally a taco truck, and now they’ve got a taqueria as well. Located in City Park West, Pinche Tacos (where you can eat sitting down, as they say) has got a full bar with great music and a fab atmosphere.

Liz and I went one night when Happy Hour was all night. Why? More like why not?! While sipping our delicious creatively crafted tequila cocktails, we balled at the menu of tacos trying to figure out which ones to get.

Although every taco looked delicious, we went with queso a la plancha, camaron a la parilla and asada. Since they are served à la carte, you can just choose whichever mix you want. I think it’s the best way to order tacos! (Tacos are priced between $2.95 and $4.50 each).

This particular night we were sitting at the bar, so we could watch the dudes make the tacos, which was so exciting. How they melt the cheese was so intriguing…

Meanwhile, I’m dreaming of green chili back here in Paris. Next time I’m in the mile high city, I plan to pop by their taco truck to eat standing up.

Do you know what the name of the restaurant actually means in Spanish? Hehe.

One night in Denver, Liz took me to one of her favorite restaurants: Linger, which ever so cleverly was transformed from the Olinger Mortuaries. This place is the cat’s pajamas and was absolutely delicious. They serve tapas from all different cultures, delicious cocktails and some of the best local beers on tap.

After dinner we stopped by Little Man Ice Cream for a scoop.

South Broadway has always been one of my favorite places to drive around in Denver. The street goes clear from downtown Denver’s Capital Hill all the way to the ‘burbs of Littleton. Liz and Rachel caught me up on what I had missed as new places and eateries are popping up left and right, and of course some of my favorite old places to stop by are still there and were in need of a visit. Gosh this part of town is just so wonderful. All of the signs are divine and the colors are perfection. It’s spunky, fun and filled with adorable shops. Complete candy for the whimsical eyes.

Some of my favorite parts of South Broadway:

Beatrice & Woodsley – Bar/Restaurant

El Diablo – Mexican Restaurant/Bar

Fancy Tiger – Fabric Shop + Vintage Shop

The Hornet – Bar/Restaurant

The Mayan – Movie Theatre

Sputnik – Bar/Restaurant/Photobooth

Starlet – Women’s Whimsicle Fashion Boutique

Sweet Action – Ice Cream Parlour
