Ten best patios on the 16th Street Mall

Denver's 16th Street Mall is turning thirty this year -- and it's never looked better. This mile-long pedestrian oasis runs through the heart of downtown and is filled with shopping, dining and entertainment options. But the very best way to enjoy it is sitting at one of the outdoor patios that line the stretch, enjoying a snack, a drink (or three) and the best people-watching in the city. Here, in no particular order, are the ten best patios on the 16th Street Mall. Get out and enjoy them before the weather turns.
