Let's play ball!

In Denver, the Rockies home opener is a migration of epic proportion. Over 50,000 Rockies fans, all sporting their purple assembles at the birthplace of Blue Moon, Coors Field, in what is undoubtedly the most brilliant display of Rockies fandom anywhere in the world. It's something everyone who lives in Colorado should do once, but for me? I've been a few times, and now I'm at the point where I'd rather watch from the comfort a bar stool right here in Parker. 

For that, and the many games that follow, 20 Mile Tap House in Parker will be my adult daycare of choice. Their food is a grand slam of simple yet high-quality American and Mexican-inspired fare with dishes like Quacameso – a combination of homemade guacamole and homemade queso dip all in the same bowl – that make this Cheers-like neighborhood watering hole a secret go-to for many Parkerites. 

"Good selection of craft beer. Food is above what you'd expect for a bar. Would absolutely go back" is how one Google reviewer bluntly and efficiently put it.  

Their crispy Buffalo Chicken Sliders and their southwestern eggrolls, which you can order as part of an appetizer platter or on their own, are also enough of a reason to leave work early "to watch the game."

We even wrote about the sliders a while back. And of course, your options on what to wash it down with are well up to Colorado standards.

So on that note, I think I'll be right at home here on Opening Day and well into the Rockies season, which I hope lasts until late October. Opening Day is April 5.
