Here it is Friday, and I’ve barely left the hotel. It’s been raining off and on all day, so I decided to skip my walking tour of Downtown Denver sites. It’s kind of a disappointment, but as long as I see Massive Attack — the whole point in the trip — everything will be OK. Anything else I manage to fit in will be just gravy.

Part of the reason for walking was to avoid spending half my day looking for parking spots. The original plan was to stand on the mile-high step at the State Capitol (it actually has a marker), then down the block to the the Colorado History Museum and on to the Denver Art Museum. If there was still time before lunch, I’d run through the Denver Mint. After that would be lunch on the way back to the hotel, grab the car, then check out Union Station (as if I’d skip a train station), the botanical gardens, the Denver Zoo, and the Museum of Natural History.

With the rain, and since I had to move the car, I hopped down to Pasquini’s Baking (found them in the yellow pages and on my map) for breakfast, then the Denver Art Museum. I couldn’t find parking near the mint, so I headed back to the hotel and spent the rest of the day reading, save for a short jaunt out for lunch.

I got hungry again around 4, so I walked down the street to a Mexican place called Las Delicias to grab an early dinner. I wanted something in my stomach because I knew I wouldn’t make it through the show without it.

More on the show later. I’ll have a whole separate post about that.
