A Visit To The Oldest Restaurant In Denver- The Buckhorn Exchange

Last month Kim, Lucas and I headed to Colorado Springs so that I could attend BAcon aka Boarding Area Conference.

The Saturday night festivities took place in an old recording studio (the name escapes me) which looked like a old auto garage or something along those lines.

The event featured live music from an authentic cowboy band-  Flying W Wranglers and really tasty barbecue from Rudy’s.

During our weekend in Colorado for the Boarding Area Conference (BAcon), a first happened. Kim got kicked out of a place due to Lucas.

I was busy all weekend attending seminars about blogging, learning new tips and tricks to make my site better. Kim, Lucas and other +1’s (of BAcon attendees) didn’t have much planned, so the organizers- Boarding Area/ Randy Petersen arranged for a day at the historic Broadmoor Hotel’s Spa.
.
For Kim, going to a spa wasn’t going to be easy without some help with Lucas.
