What happens each First Friday on Santa Fe Drive never fails to amaze me: The whole street becomes this living, animal thing, as culture-goers snake this way and that on the overflowing sidewalks in long, organic conga lines of humanity. It's a thing, Denver! Be proud. This past Friday, we saw pirates and belly dancers and hip-hoppers and snowboard designers on street corners, and, for an extra-special touch, folks celebrating Andy Warhol's birthday, which magically fell on the same day. After the jump, see a few of the sights we saw (and if that piques your interest, check out Eric Gruneisen's Santa Fe slide show).
