Colorado Convention Center Denver Blue Bear

Blue Bear At Colorado Convention Center – Denver

    Today I took the light rail to the Colorado Convention Center for the Denver Sportsmen’s Expo. The trip was easy and it was so much fun looking at all the latest stuff in the world of the outdoorsman that I didn’t get many photos of the day. The two photos in this post are the best I have. I’m bringing this up because I did a lot of homework and prep to cover this show but most of my schedule went right out the window. There was so much to see and eat and drink that I decided I wanted to attend the show, not cover the show. During my teenage years I was all into being a survivalist and learning about skills that would be of help when the Walking Dead or communists would lead to us reverting to an Iron Age world. There were a lot of people that would be prepared either of these events plus many more at this show. When I was a kid I had to get my fill of survivalist adventure from weekend camping trips and going to the swap meet with my family along with mail order catalogs from places like Campmor and Brigade Quartermaster. This expo was everything my teenage self could have wanted and everything my present self hadn’t seen for quite some time. In my late teens, especially for the year or so before I graduated high school we would camp just about every weekend.

    The two photos in this post are of the big blue bear in front of the convention center and a lady that was participating in a casting demonstration. I didn’t take many others; I just enjoyed the ride and watched tons of demos for things that I now want to buy. I did very well in terms of self control by only buying food while I was there. I took copious notes and will be sure to post reviews for any items I end up buying that I also end up really liking. Cheers!

Planet Sub is Open in Denver

Planet Sub In Denver

Lunch Rush At Planet Sub

    Three weeks ago I told you about the new Planet Sub in Denver and how I was fortunate enough to be hired and help open the store. A lot has happened and been learned in that time so I’d like to present this update and some fresh photos of the joint that has become my home away from home. This is the place where 10 people gelled together to open the new leading sub shop in Denver; we have become a family forged in the fire of lunch rushes and bread machines.

    The difference between then and now is the number of people walking through the door. We make great sandwiches and people figured that out right away. Good things are spread by word of mouth so make no mistake; Planet Sub is the new force to be reckoned with Downtown Denver.

    The rushes at lunch and dinner create a line that allows you time to thoroughly absorb our menu. We want you to get exactly what you want. Whatever you see on the menu can be modified to your specific taste. You can also create your own sandwich if you like. I personally like the Smoky Southwest Chicken without lettuce or tomato; just chicken, chipotle sauce and cheddar cheese.

    Planet Sub is an experience so your sandwich will be made by hand, toasted and placed on your table or presented to you in a bag if your sub is to go. We also have bottled and fountain drinks, chips, cookies and a butterscotch crispy rice treat with chocolate on top that we call, scotcheroo.

    I’m having a great time working there and have enjoyed watching a new business launch in my hometown. I like working in Downtown Denver and with any bit of luck I’ll be living there before too long. After being away for eight years, it feels so good to be back home.

    Anyway, I just want all you loyal readers to know that I’m doing well and have assimilated back into Denver. Working at Planet Sub and getting to know my fellow employees has helped expedite that process. It’s very nice to look forward to going to work. Cheers!
