Osteria Marco: Denver, Part II
by Heidi Obermeyer
And onwards to part two! I just returned from Washington DC for our fall break with TAM and am so excited to share some pictures and stories from that as well. But first to finish up with Denver!
Sunday night was the big night of my return home- a fancy dinner for me, Susanna, Ali and Emily! We hadn’t all been together in over a year, and it was time for some celebratin’, dressing up, and general friendship enjoyment! We went downtown for this one, to Larimer Square, which always has these really cute lights a la Mumford and Sons strung up. It’s a delightful part of downtown Denver. I dig it.
After much debate we decided upon Osteria Marco as our restaurant of choice. It’s Italian…ish food. Plus a modern twist. Isn’t that basically every cool restaurant these days?
Osteria Marco also makes its own house cheeses (haha!) so we ordered a cheese plate as one of our appitizers. I would try to come up with a mold pun here, but that’d be a little cheesy. Teehee! Got you good! Almost as good as this cheese was.
We also got bruschetta, which is of course always a hit. Don’t you just love toasty bread?
And then we ate the rest our our dinner, which was wonderful, and which I also unfortunately didn’t photograph, because sometimes you just need to enjoy the company of the people around you and not feel totally awkward taking pictures of your epic meal. So here is a pretty picture of a building downtown to console you:
And a pretty picture of my friends to console me. Aren’t they just swell ladies and gents? 🙂
And then the next morning Ali and I went to Goodwill and got crunchy ice caps at Flatirons Coffee. Story of our lives, and we like it that way!
So that’s the story of our wonderful Denver dinner night! We all had such a great time catching up and Emily gave me a bunch of these (which are THE BEST) and this book (which is very cute!) for my birthday. Afterwards we got to see Susanna’s super swanky Denver apartment (she’s all grown up now, *sniffles*!! What a well-rounded young lady!) and sadly say goodbye. Thanks for a lovely night, my friends! 🙂
