Los Nuggets jugaban su tercer encuentro seguido en casa, y tras el show de Nikola Jokic y ese triple-doble perfecto ante los Suns y luego la muy meritoria victoria sobre los Warriors, tocaba una noche más relajada, pero igualmente triunfante para los chicos de Mike Malone, que celebra cada noche con éxito su extensión de contrato con la franquicia de Colorado. La víctima fueron los Kings (126-112), que solo aguantaron, y más o menos, un cuarto. Luego, la lógica de un equipo que es mucho mejor se impuso y poco a poco los Nuggets fueron abriendo hueco en el marcador. Denver, que llegó a ir ganando hasta por 27 puntos y donde sigue sin debutar Isaiah Thomas, jamás tuvo problemas para sacar adelante un compromiso contra unos Kings que nunca tuvieron la iniciativa. La baja de Will Barton no se notó y hubo buenas noticias como los 15 puntos y 5 rebotes de Paul Millsap, con 6/10 en tiros de campo, los 19 puntos de Jamal Murray o, en general, lo bien rodada que estuvo toda la rotación de Denver, con hasta cuatro suplentes por encima de los 10 puntos. Jokic, esta vez, tuvo una noche normal: 14 puntos, 12 rebotes y 6 asistencias.
Apollo Hall opened soon after the city's founding in 1859 and staged many plays for eager settlers. In the 1880s Horace Tabor built Denver's first opera house. After the start of the 20th century, city leaders embarked on a city beautification program that created many of the city's parks, parkways, museums, and the Municipal Auditorium, which was home to the 1908 Democratic National Convention and is now known as the Ellie Caulkins Opera House. Denver and the metropolitan areas around it continued to support culture. In 1988, voters in the Denver Metropolitan Area approved the Scientific and Cultural Facilities Tax (commonly known as SCFD), a 0.1% (1 cent per $10) sales tax that contributes money to various cultural and scientific facilities and organizations throughout the Metro area. The tax was renewed by voters in 1994 and 2004 and allows the SCFD to operate until 2018.
OK so we are going to fly into Las Vegas 10pm Wednesday evg then hire a car, stay overnight in Henderson on outskirts nearer Hoover Dam and early the next day drive to Grand Canyon. We would love to hire a sports car for the drive but will have baggage for 2 couples. Is there a hotel actually at the airport where we could check our bags so we can offload the extra bags before we get the car? WE will stay at the Venetian on our return to Las Vegas Friday but dont want to go into the city when we arrive so we can get a good start in the morning out of the city traffic.
Some Denver streets have bicycle lanes, leaving a patchwork of disjointed routes throughout the city. There are over 850 miles of paved, off-road, bike paths in Denver parks and along bodies of water, like Cherry Creek and the South Platte. This allows for a significant portion of Denver's population to be bicycle commuters and has led to Denver being known as a bicycle-friendly city. Some residents are very opposed to bike lanes, which have caused some plans to be watered down or nixed. The review process for one bike line on Broadway will last over a year before city council members will make a decision. In addition to the many bike paths, Denver launched B-Cycle – a citywide bicycle sharing program – in late April 2010. The B-Cycle network was the largest in the United States at the time of its launch, boasting 400 bicycles.
The story behind one of Chile's most famous wines began more than 120 years ago. Don Melchor, founder of Concha y Toro, stored batches of his best wines in an underground cellar. When he noticed that bottles had been stolen, he spread a rumour amongst the locals that a devil lived in his cellar. Hence the name of Casillero del Diablo, the devil's cellar. Since 2008, Diablo wines have received more than 80 awards from internationally recognised competitions, including 8 Gold medals and 18 Silver medals.
