BEST SEAT IN THE HOUSE Denver 2006 - Elway's
While planning for his swanky new steakhouse and saloon in Cherry Creek, Broncos icon John Elway called just one play out to the interior design team: Do whatever you like, but one of the bar stools has to be upholstered in gold leather. Why? Gold was the favorite color of the famous quarterback's late father and mentor, Jack Elway, and John made the request in tribute to him. And so it is that while most of the chairs in Elway's ever-teeming bar are a gorgeous dark maroon, there's one -- the Jack Elway memorial bar stool -- that's undeniable gold (as is his son's NFL Hall of Fame jacket, on view in an adjacent display case). Like Number 7 himself, the best seat in the house knows how to scramble: You're not likely to find it in the same place twice.
