Tasty walking tour offered in Denver

DENVER — Forget cars or cabs how about experiencing some of the best food Denver has to offer on your own two feet? Culinary Connectors offers just that with its weekly culinary walking tours. We tagged along for a tour along Denver’s South Pearl St.

The group of 12 stopped at four locations: Duffey Roll Café, Pajama Baking Company, Cinque Soldi Salumeria, and Lincoln Road House. At each location, the guests got an inside look at the operations, and sampled some of the restaurant’s most popular items.

“We’re really about introducing people to the culinary talent we have in Colorado,” said Becky Creighton, owner of Culinary Connectors.

She said the tour appeals to many types of people. “If you want something different to do, if you love food, if you want to meet the chefs or the owners, you want to experience new foods, different neighborhoods.”

“I thought the tour was awesome, I really had a good time,” said participant Maurice Anderson. “This is something that I plan on doing again.”

The tours are held every Friday from 3-5 p.m. The location is different every week; right now the rotate through South Pearl, LoDo, Highlands, Tejon Street and Boulder. The cost is $39/person. For more information, visit www.culinaryconnectors.com
