New York Times travel story highlights "36 Hours in Denver"

A story in The New York Times travel section features Denver as one of the cities in its 36 Hours series -- a collection of  stories that highlights what to do in a city when you've only got a weekend.

A video about Denver highlights restaurants such as Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs and Acorn at The Source, as well as the 28-foot-tall Little Man Ice Cream milk can. It also showcases Great Divide and TRVE breweries, as well as the Mayan Theatre, one of the three Art Deco theaters remaining in the country.

"We call it a city with benefits," developer Paul Tamburello says in the video.

The story, complete with a map describing various restaurants and attractions, provides a Friday through Sunday itinerary that includes the Art District on Santa Fe, South Broadway boutiques, The Crawford Hotel at Denver Union Station and a variety of restaurants scattered throughout the city.

"And there are the inconspicuous marijuana dispensaries that dot nearly every neighborhood, and more stunning public spaces -- from Washington Park to the Cherry Creek bike path -- than one city has a right to," Times reporter Freda Moon writes.

Other cities the Times has featured include Memphis, Santa Fe, Seattle, Naples, Fla., and Berkeley, Calif.
