Day 2, continued: Saturday night is a great time to check out Denver's most happening gay nightclub, the always-packed Tracks Denver, (3500 Walnut St., 303-863-7326), a massive warehouse disco with two big dance floors, one spinning the latest house music, the other offering up classic '70s and '80s anthems. This is also a good night to visit the city's funky South Broadway neighborhood, which has a clutch of popular gay nightspots, including long-running BJ's (1380 S. Broadway, 303-777-9880), a low-keyed neighborhood joint; the Compound, (145 Broadway, 303-722-7977), a fun dance bar; and Boyztown (117 Broadway, 303-722-7373), a lively spot known for strippers. Day 3 Start Sunday morning off with a hearty breakfast, perhaps with a meal at the gay-popular cafe Racine's (650 Sherman St., 303-595-0418). The food's great -- family friendly atmosphere.
