Dinner With the Family

Larry is from a very large family. He is the youngest of 9. The other day, one of his sisters was in town for a business meeting and he has two brothers who live in the Denver area. Even though there are three brothers that all live fairly close, we all lead very busy lives and don’t get a chance to get together as often as we would like. So we all decided to make a dinner date while Jean was in town. We gathered at the Griffin Tavern in the DTC or Denver Tech Center.

Larry is in the rust shirt, sitting next to his brother Randy, their brother Ron and his wife Sue, two of Jean’s colleagues and Jean. We are all visiting and catching up before our dinner arrived.

We enjoyed a round of libations before our food was delivered as well.

Griffin Tavern is a cozy pub in the heart of the Denver Tech Center, featuring an eclectic selection of whiskey and craft beer, great appetizers, delicious salads, burgers, and sandwiches.

You can dine inside or out. Both were hoppin’ and happenin’ places to be.

We were a group of 8. Most of us ordered one of the many burger options. They were delicious, messy and HUGE. I ordered one with peppered bacon and pepper jack cheese. Larry helped me with my fries.

Larry went for the sliders and the mini ribs.

Jean ordered nachos, but she wanted everything on the side. They had no problem accommodating all our special requests. Our server took great care of us.

Griffin Tavern is a friendly and fun place to gather with good food and drinks to boot. They are located at 5062 Syracuse Street, Denver, CO. Their phone number is (720) 482-4038. Next time you are in the neighborhood, stop by and enjoy the local DTC pub scene.

We do our best to make the most out of every situation. Everyday is a good day, especially when celebrated with family, friends and good food.

Stay safe, stay well and carry on. ‘Til next time.
