Sending soup in Denver today

My best friend is sick at home in Denver today and unable to go her thanksgiving dinner. It's her very favorite holiday, and she'd normally be with us in Oregon, so we feel horrible for her! She joked that she wished we could fed ex her some soup, so we want to make that happen. Best delivery option for great soup, open today? She's on W 9th, by the hospital. Thanks!

Afternoon in Denver with a car

I'm arriving at Denver airport just after 11 am on a Saturday, hiring a car at the airport and then planning to stay in Grand Lake for a few days after that.

Vet w/ heartworm experience in Denver?

We recently adopted a rescue Australian shepherd. He is super cute but heartworm positive. He was given 2 (of the recommended 3) shots for treatment before we adopted him. When we got him, he tested positive. Vet recommended antibiotics (4 pills per day for 30 days) because it was just baby heartworms remaining. Recently finished the antibiotics and he is still testing positive. [more inside]

Keystone → UC Denver morning of 3 April

I need to go from Keystone to the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus the morning of 3 April 2015. So far, my best option seems to be to take an early morning Colorado Mountain Express shuttle to Denver International Airport, and then take a taxi to UC Denver. The first CME shuttle that goes directly downtown doesn't arrive until 12:30 p.m. I don't want to rent a car. Are there better options?

Nerdy grammar shirt on short notice

I'm looking for a t-shirt with the phrase: "Let's eat Grandma / Let's eat, Grandma / Punctuation saves lives!" I've found several online, but the difficulty is that I'd like to have one before we visit the Grandma in question for her birthday in a couple of days. We'll be driving, and traveling through Denver and Colorado Springs. Does anyone know of a place there where I could find this t-shirt?

We are on a roadtrip in Colorado and want to stay in downtown Denver for 1-2 weeks. We don't envision needing our car during our stay and wish to avoid the expensive parking options in downtown.

Things to do in Denver when it's cold?

Besides skiing, of course. I think myself and Ms Jo will be in Denver area for 4 days or so within the next two weeks. We may ski one day, but prefer just being out of doors and walking and hiking. Is this too crazy given the season? I would love to go to a hot springs but the closest one looks kinda cheesy/expensive. We will have a car. I like beer. Suggestions for activities and accommodations are welcome. Basically, I am looking for a non-ski reason to go Denver area this month for 3 or 4 days. If the answer is to come back later (during brew fest and better hiking weather, so be it).

What can we do? Where should we be looking to see if they've checked in anywhere? Are there any organizations listing names of people who have been rescued but are still without cell/Internet service, or does the fact that we haven't heard from them mean that they are likely still stranded somewhere?

Help me plan a surreal vacation

I'm visiting Denver later this month and am curious about what the city has to offer that is unique and offbeat in a specific way. I like the kitschy/cheesy, I love the weird/slightly spooky. My best trips to strange cities have involved: antique fairs and curio shops, museums centered around one niche concept, rambly old graveyards, outsider art in all forms, graffitied ruins and abandoned spaces, anything historical that focuses on the everyday experiences of common people.

Denver, Estes Park, Red Rocks - and no car!

My girlfriend and I are visiting Denver in mid-June for five days, primarily to see Devotchka to play at Red Rocks - but we're keen to do a bit of sightseeing as well. Our current plan is to go straight from DIA to Estes Park via shuttle bus, stay there for a couple of days, do some hikes, etc, then (somehow?!) get to Downtown Denver. We'd drop our bags there, get a taxi (or similar) to Red Rocks and back for the concert, and then head to DIA. Hiring a car isn't an option... does this sound sane? [more inside]
