My brother- and sister-in-law took all of us to Mercury Cafe in Denver for dinner tonight. It’s a restaurant that strives to be as organic and as local (food) as they can. Mercury Cafe also boasts that they are powered by wind and sun – the atmosphere is 100% boho and hippie. If you’re into live poetry readings, jazz, dance lessons, tea, fair trade coffee, vegetarian & organic foods and more, wander on over there. Honestly, the only complaint I had was the service – not horrible by any means, but I’ve had better. However, I’d love to visit again to see some of the open mic or any other of the entertainment nights.
So back to the photo. The tone of the cafe really played a part when I found this written in very tiny letters on a wall. Very free-spirited and I needed to share it with you because it captures the feeling of the building and people.
