Mayor's Design Awards celebrates seventeen winners tonight

Good thing the city didn't schedule tonight's Mayor's Design Awards on the rooftop deck of one of its award winners: Ale House at Amato's, where the view of downtown offers a stunning look of where the city is going...and how its growing.

Instead, tonight's ceremony announcing a record-breaking seventeen winners of the seventh annual Mayor's Design Awards -- some of "Denver's most cutting-edge and distinctive homeowners, businesses and developers" -- will be indoors at the Mercury Cafe, a previous honoree.
