Most parking meters around Denver are limited to two hours, an irritant for people who want to linger over dinner downtown — and a bonanza for the city agency that issues the tickets when those meters expire. So while you might find a parking spot by Butcher's Bistro —which is celebrating its first birthday at 2233 Larimer Street this weekend — you won't be able to linger over dinner and custom Colorado cocktails if you want to avoid a ticket. Says Roman:
It would be nice if the city would give you a three-hour time limit. The city deters people from coming downtown because of the short window.
Does the parking situation make you think twice about coming downtown for Denver? What's the best parking deal you've found? And would you like to see the city raise the limit?
