We love the mountains….but this weekend we decided to enjoy the Christmas lights and winter festivities of the city. Downtown Denver was calling our name. We enjoyed an evening of twinkling lights, awesome pizza and ice-skating.
The 16th Street Mall was our destination and first stop was Mellow Mushroom for the Mellowteranean pizza – loaded with chicken, roasted red peppers, mozarella, feta and tzatziki sauce for dipping. Mellow Mushroom is a national chain with a local feel. Their pizza story began on Spring Street in Atlanta, GA over 30 years ago. With now over 100 locations nationwide — if you are craving a good pizza in a unique atmosphere….look them up, I bet there is one near you.
After a great dinner, we were ready to brave the cool night air and try out the skating rink just around the corner. The Southwest Rink at Skyline Park is definitely a popular Denver attraction and free to the public. Under the Christmas lights and enjoying the music from the live band, we skated the night away….
