Reader: Rockies could spend money on pitching...or a party deck!
It's Opening Day, and Coors Field has a new amenity. No, not a pitching staff, but the $10 million Rooftop, a two-story deck that features a Tavern Ballpark with a bar 52.80 feet long, as well as an outpost of CHUburger. And on a lower level, there's a Rio Grande location pouring those very potent margs, as well as a Marley coffee stand. It's all part of an effort by the Colorado Rockies to bring more local flavor into the ballpark...and maybe collect a little more cash before the end of the game.

As a money-maker, yeah, it'll work. Right up until the first drunken moron goes over the rail.
We could spend money on pitching... or we could make a party deck! Ka-ching!
Will you be at the game today? If so, will you be watching the game -- or partying on the new Rooftop? What are the other places to party in LoDo/the Ballpark neighborhood today?
