The group will meet at Marco's Coal Fired, a delicious wood-fired pizzeria in the heart of downtown Denver. We'll start by going over expectations for the tour and getting to know one another. Next, we'll head in for our first of six delicious tastings. You'll taste a gourmet hot dog from one of Forbes’ top 10 hot dog joints in the U.S., enjoy a slice of authentic Neopolitan pizza from one of the only pizzerias in Colorado certified by the AVPN in Italy, visit a family-owned empanadas shop voted Best New Restaurant in Denver, taste sheep's milk cheese featured on the Bravo show Top Chef, sample Southwestern fusion cuisine and end with a sweet treat on one of the trendiest new blocks in downtown Denver. Your local foodie guide will share stories about Denver's history along the way. From secret tunnels to world-famous bordellos, learn just how wild the west was in the city's early days. We'll visit historic sites and city landmarks like Denver's oldest hotel, the iconic Union Station, the new Dairy Block, the baseball stadium and the city's first jazz club. If you like to eat and get off the beaten path to explore authentic local spots, this is the experience for you!
