What's your career? Downtown has plenty of things to offer, I'm 23 and I don't ever have a lack of things to do. I live in Lakewood and for me it's perfect, 5 minutes from Red Rocks, 30 from Winter Park, 10 from LoDo, 40 from Boulder.

I went to Green Mountain HS as did Broncos Dynasty although he doesn't post anymore, I remember you saying you went to Arapahoe once there has to be a few other around here that went to school in the metro area.

Yeah, Centennial itself is more suburbs and families. But it is right next to Denver which is happening as far as I know. Centennial/Denver is obviously in a great location and you definitely should not worry about the weather. I'm still in college so I don't know too much about careers in Denver, but I know it is a growing city and I know a lot of successful people that have lived in Denver throughout their careers.

You can come live here as long as you don't wear Pats stuff.

People in Colorado are definitely friendly and laid back, it's different than the East Coast for sure. And I mean there were a lot of hot girls at my HS and there are at CU haha

Well I'm out of the playoffs in my 20-team Money league. Freakin' Desean Jackson couldn't get me 6 lousy points tonight. Not to mention Manning and Decker were the only two that got close to projected, again!

I'm in 2 money fantasy leagues this year. In my total points league, I have been in first place since week 1. One of my buddies team is getting hot though and he's about the only one who has a chance to catch me. I told him we loses by default because he drafted Peyton. My team would be pretty good too if I found a fantasy stud in round 10. Plus I've lost Gronk and McGahee in that league.

In my head to head, I have won 5 in a row and am finally in first place with one week to go before the playoffs. If I could somehow win both leagues I would turn $150 into $1,150. That would be a successful season. Very Happy

Hey guys,

Been a while since I posted here but I wanted to see if any of you have any kind of advice as far as going to games in Denver. My dad and I are going to the game vs Tampa this weekend and it's our first in Denver. I can't wait for the game, but is there anything to know or any kind of advice as far as what to do or where to go? Restaurant? Sports bars? We'll be checking out downtown as well on Monday so anything would be appreciated!

And if any of you are going to the game let me know!

Thanks

The Tavern is good, Brothers is good, LoDo's, Sports Column, Blake Street. Brooklyn's is the closest to the stadium and parking is cheaper there park on the Metro State campus across from the Pepsi Center. As for restaurants if you don't want to eat at one of the sports bars just head down 16th Street Mall.

Since it sounds like you're 21 there's a few breweries on 22nd by Coors Field you could check out.

Awesome thanks! Luckily we won't pay for parking since a friend is dropping is off. Which also means we can't go too far from the stadium but we'll check out Brooklyn's! Appreciate it man!

Would a 23 year old male enjoy living in Centennial, Colorado?

Yeah I don't see why not. It's in the southeastern suburbs, about 20 minutes from downtown. It's more of a family-oriented town, a "bedroom" community if you will (meaning a standard suburb where most people commute either to downtown or the tech center for work).

Plus, wherever you are in Centennial you're about a 5 minute drive to Dove Valley so you can go to Broncos training camp every day in August!

I may have to choose between it and San Diego. I am a beach guy. There are other reasons I like Colorado, but...what do you all do in the summer for fun? Laughing

& are there many young people? I know nobody out there Embarassed

Yeah there are a lot of young professionals in Denver. If you move here, join the Facebook group Denver Young Professionals, my sister is in it and they do a lot of events and get-togethers. Good way to meet new people, especially of the female variety, and network for your career. The cost of living will be A LOT lower than San Diego. Summers in Colorado are very nice; mid-80s to mid-90s (and occasional low-100s, ~ 5 days a year) most days from May through September.

Coming from the East Coast you'll find the winters here are lot better than in the northeast. Yeah it will be mid-30s to low-50s each day but it will be clear and sunny. We will get a snow storm but once it moves out (1-2 days) it will clear up and be sunny and mild.

There's lots to do downtown in the summer - Rockies games, lots of concerts, great bar/club scene and awesome restaurants. The mountains are right there; you can get to Breckinridge, which has a good downtown area with a microbrewery, in about an hour's drive up I-70. In the winter, if you want to deal with the crazy traffic and spend the $$$, there's skiing and/or snowboarding. I'm a rare bird - I'm a live-long Coloradoan and I don't do winter sports. I've been snowboarding maybe a dozen times in my life. For me, I hate getting up early, when it's freezing cold and fighting crazy ski traffic up I-70 in bad weather and spend a small fortune on the mountain. But a lot of people love it and it's always really easy to meet some snow bunnies. Wink

I worked in finance for 4 years right out of college. I worked downtown on 17th street, an area dubbed "Wall Street of the West" and lived in Westminster (a north western suburb). It was a good life, I made a lot of money, made a lot of friends and, aside from corporate rat race lifestyle I hated, had an enjoyable 4 years.

Yes very much. Like I said join that Young Professionals group on Facebook. You'll meet a lot of people your age working in finance. At my company (of about 900 employees) there were at least 100 people who it was their first grown up job out of college and as such we were all in the kind of the same point in our lives. Everyone was part of the larger group and we would head out for happy hours after work, go to games and bars together, go skiing/snowboarding in the winter, go to summer concerts, etc. You'll really enjoy it.
