October 23 we celebrated by going out on the town in Denver.
Starting early that day at Jeanne's house we enjoyed appetizers and a bottle of 2005 Gundlach Bundschu Merlot from Sonoma. What a treat.
At 8:00pm we arrived at Cafe Brazil. Kerri's brother, Casey arranged our reservation.
We loved the atmosphere, restaurant style, interior paint, art on the walls, clean restrooms and the simple cork decorations.
The service staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Our evening went like this...
Cafe Brazil boasts a wonderful selection of fine Rums and Wines from South America.
The Rum caught this Pirate's eye.

We ended our evening at the Living Room www.coclubs.com/venue in downtown Denver. Where we listen to the music of Elizabeth Rose. The music was fantastic. We like discovering new music and restaurants.
Here is a link to the band's web page-- http://www.elizabethrose.net/. The Living room was top notch in atmosphere, service and style. One of Regas Christou's hot spots in the Denver Metropolitan scene.
We gave this night a perfect 10 as far as great evenings go and we also put our Mark of Excellence seal of approval on both these establishments. Check 'em out next time you're in the Denver area!

Whatever it is, I found myself on the road to culinary creation.
Just for fun, I'm going to also candy a few pistachios...
I always like to pull out the mortar and pestle
