Traveling from Oregon to Denver, CO for SBLAAR18 conference. I always look forward to gettin away from my daily routine and exploring a new city for a few days. And, of course, the company and subject matter is always intriguing.
The conference was held at the Denver Convention Center (being held up any a large blue bear!). My hotel was just around the corner, walking distance. I found Denver to be over-priced, and the food was not very good.
