Day 21 - Nate's Report

Last night we were feeling the cabin fever and needed to escape. We called up some of our favorite neighbors and they wanted to walk to the Brady District with us.

Brady Heights neighborhood is just north of downtown and is within walking distance to many great things like the Cains, John 3:16 Homeless Shelter, and the jail. Being close to the jail is really a benefit. You know how when you get booked for the night and they let you out at 2 am with no way to get a ride. Well, it sure helps if you can just lace up your walking shoes and take a little short walk to your nice warm bed. Everyone should live close to the jail in my opinion.

We walked south on Boulder under the I-244 overpass to the Brady District. It was unusually quiet. No shady business going on and not even very many cars traveling the highway above us.
As we were approaching Cains, we were surprised to see a whole lot of teenagers who still came to watch the Eli Young Band. There was a giant sea of plaid before us as far as the eye could see. We decided to patronize the Crystal Pistol Saloon next to Cains. It was quiet and cozy and they still have the cheapest Guinness in town.

Hunger struck at some point and there is a great place to get late night food - the Hunt Club Pub and Grub. If you have never been there, you should check it out. There are more dead animals on the walls than there are back in their kitchen, but the tasty ones are definitely back in their kitchen. It was nice to be able to walk home and not have to worry about destroying our car or someone else's. We just had to make sure we didn't twist an ankle or get attacked by the abominable snowman.
