the buzz




Denver, Colorado

“Thar’s gold in them thar hills! Pike’s Peak or Bust” More hype than actuality as it turned out, the slogan drew fortune seekers to Denver environs in 1858 and many stayed. Forged on the eastern slope of the Rockies, the city grew as a supply center for westward-bound wagon trains. The railroad’s arrival in 1870 brought another wave of settlers, plus grist mills for western wheat and numerous stockyards. Today, a skyline of modern office towers marks Denver as the Rocky Mountain region’s principle commercial, financial, and industrial hub. Food traditions in the mile-high city reflect its diverse population and frontier town history, from hearty cuts of beef to buffalo steaks. Teeming with baristas, drive-throughs, brewpubs, pork mains, superb Tex-Mex fare, Asian restaurants, sandwiches (maybe the Denver or Western omelet/sandwich was invented here, although food historians wonder), and barbeque, of course, Denver offers an all-American feast.
