Best Place to Eavesdrop on Blind Dates - 2004
Tattered Cover Book Store
Everyone dreads blind dates -- unless, of course, they're watching someone else's dreadful blind date. And there's no better place to do that than the Tattered Cover in Cherry Creek. The bookstore appears to be the blind-date location of choice in Denver, which makes sense: The coffee-shop area is big enough to allow for an undetected escape in the event one party spots the other first and doesn't like what he/she sees, yet it's also cozy enough for intimate conversation in case the combination clicks. (The Fourth Story is also right upstairs, in case the daters want to move on to drinks and dinner.) There's just one catch: The people sitting nearby can hear every awkward word the couple utters.
