30 MILES OF CRAZY! 37: This is Colfax

Yes, Boys and Girls, it’s that time again! It’s Friday and time for another tru-ish tale of Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#37)! This week: This is Colfax! … or YES, MY THIRD EYE IS NOW SQUEEGEED QUITE CLEAN! THANK YOU!

So… You may have heard about Colorado’s new booming industry: Marijuana, Cannaibis, Mary Jane, Jazz Cigarettes, etc.

So… You may have heard about Colorado’s new booming industry: Marijuana, Cannaibis, Mary Jane, Jazz Cigarettes, etc. Yes, you cannot swing a dead cat anywhere in Denver without hitting six or seven dispensaries, and that is just along Colfax alone. FUN FACT: Dispensaries in Colorado actually now outnumber Starbucks close to two to one. Yes, It’s true. This also means that the weed you are finding around the city is not your common street level skunk weed. No, it’s pretty damn hippies with stars in their eyes pure. This also extends (even much more so) to edibles. It’s insane.

Hence this week’s comic. I believe the whole incident was Colfax’s revenge upon me for doing funny pages.

Here’s the musical accompaniment… and a second one as well, just because.

SHARE AND ENJOY!

30 MILES OF CRAZY! 36: Cheesman Park

Yep, it’s Friday again and time for another tru-ish tale of Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#36)! This week: Cheesman Park! … or DINING WITH THE DEAD MEN!

Cheesman Park is another one of those odd ball (though quite lovely) places that you find around Denver.

Cheesman Park is another one of those odd ball (though quite lovely) places that you find around Denver. This was particularly easy for me, since it’s only about two blocks from my place. You see, Cheesman is a remnant of Denver’s pioneer cowboy past. Once on the far outskirts where few would venture, the ‘city’ grew up around it. It became infamous over a 100 years ago while being developed as a park because… well, it’s a surprise, isn’t it? Just read the comic.

So… a very apt Musical Accompaniment (as we often picnic during these summer Tango nights in the park, hence the comic)… and here we go!

(… and yes, the Changling Mansion was alongside Cheesman Park as well.)

SHARE AND ENJOY!

30 MILES OF CRAZY! 35: Isn’t it Romantic?

… and here we go again…

It’s Friday and time for another tru-ish tale of Colfax and the Mile High City. A new 30 MILES OF CRAZY! (#35)! This week: Isn’t it Romantic? … or A VALENTINE FROM COLFAX!

It’s Valentine’s Day on Colfax Avenue. What can go wrong??? This is another in a series of stories about Colfax that have been related to me. Buy me a drink, tell me a good story, and maybe a comic will come out of it…

So… Musical Accompaniment (and witty banter) and photo after the comic.

SHARE AND ENJOY!
