My Parents 65th Anniversary celebration

 Yesterday was my parents 65th anniversary!

  Back from their honeymoon.  And even to this day they are inseparable!
We had a wonderful celebration last night at the Capital Grill in downtown Denver on Larimar Square.  It is such a great restaurant and the service is outstanding.   The table was decorated with red mylar hearts along with an Anniversary card from the restaurant for my parents.  Andrew, our waiter, spoiled us rotten.  He first brought us a glass of a delicious French champagne.  
Our entrees were spectacular:  fillet for me and my Mom, Len had generous portion of rack of lamb and my dad had a sea bass with pea shoots in a citrus sauce that was not only beautiful looking, it was perfectly cooked and the flavors were out of this world.
Then Andrew treated us each to a dessert.  Creme Brulee with seasonal fruit, a chocolate flourless cake, cheesecake and an assortment of ice cream.  You get the idea now that the whole dining experience was wonderful!
 It was a beautiful evening! There was a three quarter moon peaking through the clouds.
 We were waiting for the valet to come around with Len's car.  Larimar Square was packed and this was only Wednesday evening.  Just think what it is like on the weekend.
Before we knew it, hundreds of people on bikes exploded onto the scene.  The Denver Cruiser Ride is a weekly bicycle ride on Wednesday nights in Denver.  It was founded by Brad Evans in 2005 and the ride runs from May through September.  Supposedly it attracts over tw0-thousand riders each week.  Each week there is a theme and the riders meet in the Greek Amphitheater in Civic Center Park.
Crazy bikes of all kinds.  The one above had a side car and was weaving all over the place.

What a great evening all around.   

Happy 65th Anniversary Mom and Dad!
