Now that we are past all the political weirdness that resulted in OR show being moved from Utah to Colorado, I’m digging the Denver digs. The Salt Palace in Salt Lake City was getting seedy, and was in many ways not as comfortable. The Denver convention center has many more seating areas, nice outdoor decks where you can catch a smoke or just step out if the weather’s nice, even the HVAC system seems to work better, and while Denver does get somewhat air polluted, bad days here are still better than the downright toxic ozone loaded inversions SLC gets. Oh, and even the door guards are friendlier. So all good. It is summer, let’s keep it casual and check out a grab bag of goods.
Cruising around again today, enjoying the nice HVAC and friendly door folks.
