I knew nothing about the history of Denver before I arrived in Colorado last October. I had no idea when the city was founded (in 1958!) or that once the newcomers settled down, they first established bars and right after that they built brothels making Market Street into Denver’s Red Light District.

I didn’t have a whole lot of time to research places to eat beforehand since I decided to make the pilgrimage out west with about two weeks notice but I certainly made do.

Since I’ve moved and resettled again, I’ve been looking to make up for my lost trip to Reykjavik.
