We've been doing a lot of pre stuff stuff and we're gonNA continue that tradition but completely spin it on its head as we bring back James Spencer to the show. Welcome back man to be back here. We've looked at a a lot of programming done previews we do that before we go to a conference I find some stuff I think is interesting. We bring the person WHO's presenting or an author on talk about it. It gives people some some insight into some programming. They may want to see or some things they might want to look up. But you and I want to do something a little bit different because your local to Denver Ver- where CSM is going to be this year. So you got like inside knowledge. And that's what we want to pick your brain four. I Yeah I hope so I hang Out in Denver a bit. I live A little ways outside in Aspen Colorado. So you know that's really what I want to push everybody to either before or after go get on. The ski slopes in a day or two out in the mountain yeah. I'm trying very hard to not say where the beer flows like wine but there it goes. I just said it like geography wise because I been there before to Denver Not Aspen. What's the distance between the two you know at the girls lives? We're not too far but I spent four hour drive okay. Up Over Mountain Mountain passes and around the hills and then back down our little valley here all right so Wilbert shorter in the summer. I said you were local. I'm in New York your your local to Denver. But you've spent some time there and so what I wanted to do is pick the brain of someone who knows it way better than me because again. I don't know the difference distance between Denver and Aspen. Aspen they could have been next to each other. You could tell me that I wouldn't difference so when people because Colorado Aspen Denver like it's a destination I mean it's a place people oh put on their calendar to go to. I wanted to give people some insight into some things. They must do outside of the conference. Yes coining corning l'excellent this fantastic go learn go network do the whole nine but also make sure to do something cool because as my dad told me. Hey man one day we're all GONNA be dirt dirt which sounds really morbid but what it means is do some cool stuff while you have the opportunity especially when you're in a cool city like Denver so if someone's coming into to Denver you you know what what's on your list to tell him. Do you know I think it's Kinda racking. My brain of all the different things have gone into Denver for the year and One Is Red Rock. It's not real close to the conference center but it's you know. Maybe a thirty minute Uber Ride and last night looking at PRICES ON UBER or lift. It was thirty bucks to get over there and they have these great outdoor concert fully natural amphitheatre just a really unique place and and there's not a whole lot going on for concerts during. CSM There is some local music there but they have hiking trails and the the Colorado Music Hall of fame and a bunch of other stuff that you could easily fill a day where it's it's not just an evening. Yeah Red rocks killer suggestion number one all out myself. I'm Dave Matthews Band Fan and they recorded a pretty great Album out there live album had a chance is to To kind of you know. Hike the steps hike around there a little bit. It is worth the trip. If if you're looking to get out and do some moving maybe WANNA get up early one day or you're GonNa stay a day later come a day early yet. Red Rocks being not terribly close but also not terribly far and you mentioned the museum as a guy who used to work in rock radio. Oh man they got some really cool like guitars and just photos of the legendary performers Supernova. So if your music fan red rocks pretty cool to check out. I'd say it's definitely worth the ride there and back Walker on over there. There really is We had Matt Tuttle from the Denver Nuggets on not long ago and I actually creeped on his Twitter instagram and saw that they actually do some Denver Nuggets preseason training they make the I think it was just the rookie. Though they're making the rookies run the steps at red rocks which which is Kinda cool that even the even the the Denver Nuggets are using red rocks as a way to get some exercise. That's so cool. I thought that through some great shots. Heck yeah moving on what else so at red rocks definitely pretty good thing to start with. What else do you suggest people check out? I think A areas of the city to just hang out larimer square square is known for its restaurants nightlife and and everything going on there but then and then drilling where I've hung out. It's on Blake Street. Kinda leads away from their up towards course feel hill. And there's some cool.
