The theme of this year’s annual EdNET Conference is, “Staying Nimble in an Evolving Market.” It’s a relevant topic, and those traveling to Denver for the event will have invaluable opportunities to share ideas and discuss trends with colleagues.
But we like to advocate for a healthy work-play balance, especially when visiting a vibrant, beautiful city such as Denver. So here are a few recommendations to help you make the most of your free time in the Mile-High City…
Located on the north side of Denver, Café Brazil offers “an adventure in South American Cuisine, highlighting many specialties and creations from both land and sea.” The restaurant is located adjacent to the Rum Room, which carries more than 75 rums from around the world, in case thirst strikes.
Speaking of thirst, Denver is known to some as the “Napa Valley of craft beer.” Not the worst reputation to have, and the city embraces it with a long roster of beer-serving establishments. In a travel feature about the U.S. West, The Guardian pegged Williams and Graham as one of Denver’s best: “Walk into this speakeasy in the Lower Highlands neighborhood in Denver and you’ll think you’ve stumbled into a tiny bookstore from wild west days, but the shelves part and you are whisked into a back room where the cocktails are some of the best you will taste in the city.”
If you’re looking for a unique experience, The 1up Arcade is a strong contender. According to The 1up’s website, the arcade/bar features more than 45 classic arcade games, 15 pinball machines, three lanes of classic Skee-Ball and multiple sets of Giant Jenga.
