First things first! If you have been reading these posts through an email subscription, please forgive our wonky formatting. I believe we have that sorted now. Forgive us for being such n00bs.

When we talked about launching this blog, we fell in love with an alliteration, an adverb that started with the letter D followed by Denver. As we neared our first post, our dapper friend LeVar broke the news to us that a blog by almost the very same name was already in existence. We didn’t want to be those guys.

It was back to the drawing board. We decided we wanted to incorporate Colfax, as its one of Denver’s most storied and impressive avenues.

Colfax Avenue

For years, journalists have recommended driving the length of Colfax if you want to experience the Mile High City in a single day.

Colfax starts with a C. So does Clare. Sooo…What’s a well-known Denver street that begins with a D like Drew does? Downing.

What establishments are actually at the intersection of Colfax and Downing? An unremarkable hotel chain and a Papa John’s. That’s okay. Denver has a bevy of interesting corners, especially along the span of both Colfax and Downing, but this specific corner didn’t need to bear any weighted meaning.

While the blog’s name sounds like a hipster bourbon bar, we promise it’s not.

And that is all.
