Top of the Town

July 2006

For the last year we’ve been sampling, scrutinizing, shopping, slurping, singing, salsaing, and sitting our way through Denver’s places and spaces to find the exceptional, the fantastic, the matchless.

Our crack team of writers and editors (you know, the foodie-hipster fashionistas-working professional-night-crawling-dog-loving Mile-High experts we have on staff) put our discerning palates to the test for you, dear Denver. We also got a whole lot of help from our readers this year (more than 75,000 votes logged online. Right on!).

The final result? Our ultracomprehensive annual list of Denver’s best. With 292 winners this year, it’s our biggest TOT yet. As it should be. This year, Top of the Town celebrates 10 years. But now onto the good stuff: Ready, set, read!
