In a little more than a month, U2 is playing at Invesco Field. May 21, to be exact. Yeah, we're pretty psyched, too. Even more so now: Did you happen to notice any special significance of that date?

The pork udon at Bones is one of our favorite cold-weather dishesIt's been a warm week in the Mile High City, but we're dropping below freezing every night as the days inch toward winter.

This sweater could win you beer.There are many rumors about the pilgrims and beer. Some say they landed on Plymouth Rock because they ran out of the sudsy stuff. Others claim they drank it on the voyage over because it was safer than water. Whatever the truth, beer and pilgrims will always ... More >>
Beer holds no grudges, and neither, apparently does Invesco Field. Beginning with the Denver Broncos game on October 17, the stadium will begin serving Rail Yard Ale in cans in its six River's Edge beer stands. It joins just a handful of other Colorado microbrews in the stadium, which is a b ... More >>
Going out to the ballgame? Maybe you want to eat elsewhere first.

As you may have heard, Barack Obama recently became the president of the United States. However, his enemies continue to portray him as a smooth but dangerous character whose rhetorical skills mask evil motives. In this recently posted video, for instance, Obama is accused of using "the techniques o ... More >>
The inauguration ceremonies for President Obama seem to have gone smoothly yesterday, with no arrests and only a few small logistical mishaps reported. Quite a feat, considering the record two million people who flooded into Washington for the event. It all serves to illustrate the ways local and n ... More >>
In so many ways, the Democratic National Convention of last August seems like a dream, a dream that packed the streets and businesses of Denver, and sent images of this city around the world. Looking out the window now, I can barely make out the silhouette of Invesco Field at Mile High, where Barac ... More >>
Denver was still drunk on the success of the Democratic National Convention yesterday morning when suddenly, the party was over. Speculation that Alaska governor Sarah Palin would be the surprise pick for the Republican vice-presidential nomination pushed the DNC out of the national spotlight on all ... More >>
Carl's, please don't change! Change can make a person hungry. And after standing in line in the sun for two and a half hours, watching speeches and bands for another five (Yes We Can!), hearing constantly about change, and then being funneled nearly a mile in the wrong direction by angry police o ...

The stars and stripes, supersized. Shortly after the speakers began appearing at Barack Obama's Invesco Field at Mile High acceptance shindig, crews of yellow-smocked minions (whose activities at the Pepsi Center during the DNC were documented here and here) materialized and began giving small Ame ...

"What have the Democrats done to my brain?" Channel 9 morning anchor Gary Shapiro is usually pretty upbeat about everything. So when he mentioned during a Monday broadcast that his DNC goodie bag wasn't all that, well, good, I was taken aback. After seeing mine, however, I realized he had a point.
A willingness to make an ass of yourself is key to enjoying most things in life. The American Presidential Experience, an exhibit that fills a good chunk of the parking lot at Invesco Field at Mile High, is pretty much what you'd expect -- in a good way. The primary displays -- including a replica ... More >>
At least the tickets seem to be the real things.

Invesco Field at Mile High contains White House history galore.
State of confusion.

Federico Peña, Leah Daughtry and Bill Ritter talk tickets at Invesco Field. Despite the term typically used to describe them, the bowels of Invesco Field at Mile High looked pretty spic-and-span at around 2:30 p.m. on August 6, and that made sense.

So the Denver Police department wants the force in Colorado Springs to provide 58 officers for the Democratic National Convention. Yeah, that'll do it.
