Colorado: Denver: A Lil Louisiana at Station 26

You know the value of crawfish when there's a scale on the table.

Murphy and I + two nephews and a niece went to the Station 26 Brewery in Denver one windy, chilly weekend day - the brewery was having a Louisiana music-and-food day!

Oh, it did the soul some good to hear a little zydeco, even though it was via muzak. A live band played later.  Ever since I heard Sorry About Your Sister perform at the Bad Ass Music Festival, I've been very fond of the double bass.

And I loved seeing this box percussion, which Las Cafeteras introduced to me. Or was it Jarana Beat playing Dolor de Aqui? Aieee. Either one will do it for you.

Of course, there was the beer. We had to try several.

But my favorite thing at Station 26 may have been the pretzels. They're in giant plastic kegs, free for the taking. Salty. Dark wheaty. Crunchy.
