Contrary to popular belief Denver is not "that high".  While it is truly the "Mile High City" (as in 5280 feet above sea level) there are many, many locations in Colorado that are considerably higher in altitude (more than twice and some approaching three times higher than Denver).  It is always good to acclimate yourself to altitude before undertaking strenuous travel (such as hiking, backpacking and skiing) and for that Denver is an excellent starting point.

This is in the article, what is the source? Everyone says this about everywhere.

While it is truly the "Mile High City" (as in 5280 feet above sea level) there are many, many locations in Colorado that are considerably higher in altitude (more than twice and some approaching three times higher than Denver).

Original text of Red Rocks Amphitheater was:

"Located in Morrison, Colorado, on the western edge of Denver, Red Rocks Amphitheater is a gorgeous outdoor concert venue with amazing natural beauty and providing a great view of Denver below. Its popularity has been aided (and no doubt the effect is mutual) by famous live recordings of concerts by popular bands U2 and Dave Mathews Band at this location. The acoustics are the best of any outdoor venue I've experienced, with crystal-clear vocals and sibilant sounds being audible from any seat, without harshness."

Organization of the Drinks section. I've recently posted a few bars that I frequent, but am going to reorganize them. I didn't have time to put a description up yet, but will get to that later, when I have a chance. I'd like to reorganize them based on geography (as, frequently, a lot of people go to an 'area', instead of a particular bar in the downtown area. Maybe a street map type setup, with the bars located on a particular street visually represented, so that patrons can judge where they want to go based on the types and quantities of bars in a given area?
