One Reader's Very Personal "You Know You're From Denver When" Top Ten
Additional images below.
Earlier this week, when we shared our latest collection of "You Know You're From Denver When" punchlines, we asked readers to share their favorite way to complete that sentence.
Plenty did so — and we'll be featuring many of them in a future post.
First, though, come the contributions of Matt Morava, who created his very own top ten list — one that is likely to strike a chord with a great many Denver-area residents...particularly if they're natives.
Here are his picks, which we've photo-illustrated. Thanks, Matt!
Number 10. You know you're from Denver when...you can remember getting excited about car plates from California and being blown away by plates from Alaska or Hawaii.
Number 9. You know you're from Denver when...you can remember that the South Platte has a number of "brown sites" near it and you wouldn't get in it, especially at Confluence Park, to save a life.
Number 8. You know you're from Denver when...the "Cash Register" building still looks cool.
Number 7. You know you're from Denver when...you've owned a parka long enough that the sleeves are all black and grimy from use.
Number 6. You know you're from Denver when...you caught a show at the Rainbow Music Hall — especially that one with Black Flag and Nig Heist.Next Page
