Kong Off 2 - 1UP Barcade Area Buildings Denver, Colorado Kong Off 2 - 1UP Donkey Kong (Kong Off II)
The 1UP Barcade 1925 Blake Street Denver Colorado Kong Off II visit Denver, Colorado November 16-17, 2012 I was looking forward to playing some video games at the Kong Off 2 Event at the 1UP and meeting friends that I only get to see during these events as we all live in different States. Being from California my main concern was how well I would do in the cool temperatures of the mile high city, of Denver. To my surprise the weather was very nice, no rain, no snow or any other problems. Day time temperatures were about 70 degrees so there was no problem at all in freezing to death. I took some time to take pictures of the surrounding area and visited the Coors Baseball field, Science Museum and Denver Mint. The result of my sight seeing tour is within these pictures I took which show the skyline and interesting buildings in Denver, Coloraado. Please enjoy.
