10+ YEARS


Over 10 years ago, I wrote my first blog post. Since then, I've authored books, had kids, traveled the world, found Trish and blogged about it all.

The neighborhood just keeps getting better

Our House When Julie, Abbie and I first moved to our neighborhood, Julie was a little apprehensive. She liked living out in the burbs, and we were planning on living here for a few months while another house was being built in The Ranch. Meanwhile, I loved the neighborhood. I went to school at DU (a mere 8 blocks away) and considered the area my "old stomping grounds."

After a couple months, The Ranch house fell through (price went up 60K) and we decided to double the size of our house. We rented the house next door while ours was being built. Last year, that house was leveled and a nice 2-story, full basement house was put in. It sold a couple months ago for $750K. When we remodeled our house, we did it because we needed the space, not because we thought its value would skyrocket.

Today, I couldn't ask for a better location to live in. I was disappointed when the excellent Italian restaurant (literally 50 feet from our house) was replaced with Little India. However, I love Indian food and we've grown to love the new place. The wine tastings (Wednesdays and Fridays) at Little's Liquors are great, and the fact that I can take out the trash and pick up a bottle of wine in under a minute is phenomenal. The fact that Safeway is 1.5 blocks away is great, we walk there several times per week. Heck, even the first Chipotle ever built is only 6 blocks away. Not to mention Jerusalem's, the best Middle-Eastern food in town.

My motivation for writing this post is because a new Sushi place has moved into our neighborhood. Julie mentioned it last week, and I had a chance to check it out today. I was very impressed when I walked in and discovered it was a John Hollys. I've only eaten at one John Hollys (near Park Meadows Mall), but it was excellent. Needless today, lunch was scrumptious today and I'm looking forward to eating there again. The Sushi Den is pretty close by as well, but it's probably a mile away - unlike John Hollys at a 1/2 block.

Matt, If you like Middle Eastern, next time your in the Orlando area, you'll have to hit Ali Baba's in Longwood [http://alibabarestaurant.info/links/menu.htm] (about 10 mi north of downtown). Middle Eastern Food is awesome -- surprised there are'nt more of these types of restaurants around. We could talk web-frameworks over some kabobs and falafel :-)

That's wonderful news about the Sushi! It IS a sweet neighborhood. It was sad when the Music School moved near old Stapleton and we went up there our 2nd year at DU. Every time I walk the main campus... just get so nostalgic!

I'm addicted to Chipotle... There must be crack inside their steak burritos with pinto beans and hot sauce.
