View From a Hotel Window, 6/3/19: Denver

And unusually, this view is from the day I’m leaving the hotel room, rather than checking into it. What can I say, I was busy the whole weekend in Denver. Better late than never. Denver Pop Culture Con was lovely as usual, and I got to see lots of friends, and an Amanda Palmer concert (and also, finally spent a little time with Amanda, because we’d never physically met despite having a number of dear acquaintances in common. She’s fab, in case you’re wondering).

Having now graced you with this vision of Denver, I’m leaving to go home. So long, Denver! I enjoyed you.

    Glad you had fun! I missed both your signings sadly :(

  2. We left the Denver area on Friday morning after a great family reunion. It is a lovely place to visit. It’s very scenic, and there’s a lot going on. You also can’t walk ten feet without tripping over a craft brewery or distillery; it is definitely a beer and spirits lover’s paradise.

  3. Dang, I missed you too. Need to pay closer attention to your blog. Could have come down from Fort Collins for the Pop Culture Con. And Neal Stephenson will be in Denver on Friday, but I am missing that as well. :-(

  4. I couldn’t make the con but I was also at the Amanda Palmer concert! It was wonderful but very long and I had to leave before it was over!
