    Ok so Thursday is my B-day. We were bullSh!ting at work about how much every thing has changed around here.
    I remember my first concert was at the old rainbow music hall. Countyline road
    was way the hell out there. Used to go and check out chicks at Cinderella city
    by the water fall. I remember when Highlands ranch was not there. Broadway stoped at Countyline road. Anyone remember the old breden creamery next to gate rubber on So. broadway. The cool ass 3.2 bars was Margi gras on havana. And all the cool 3.2 clubs in Glendale. what do you remember growing up?

    Well, I'm still a youngun, but I remember when I was a kid that the section of Zuni st that I lived by in N. Denver was still dirt.

    Came home one day after school and it was paved.

    I remember when they built I-76 a few years later. I'd ride my bicycle on it right after they paved it, but before they'd opened it....

    ....now I feel old and I'm only 22.... Thanks guys! :mad:


    :D :D :D

    I remember when everything north of 88th was dirt and grass fields. Or when they opened the 16th Street Mall. How about going to Bears games? Or the Zephyrs? What about the Colorado Flames? Remember when LoDo was a junkie playground and even bums were afraid to go there? We used to ride our dirtbikes where the Westminster Mall is. Where the Home Depot and Lowes, RTD, etc is at 52nd and Wads, that used to be Craig Chevrolet.
