Many of Les Flâneurs' most treasured experiences are the result of pure serendipity. There was that great Rolling Stones concert in Paris back in 1982 and more recently, why not long long ago at all, a chance to see the "Star Wars™ and the Power of Costume Exhibit" at The Denver Museum of Art. We managed to catch it just before it closed on April 9.
We spent the better part of two hours viewing costumes from The Galactic Republic, various rebels, scoundrels and Jedi Knights, as well as several folks who had unfortunately succumbed to the dark side. We also carved out an hour to take a museum overview with one of the museum's fabulous docents. While Les Flâneurs generally shy away from strict rules, one rule with which we can abide is, "Always accept an offer of a museum tour." There is nothing like seeing a museum through the eyes of someone who loves it enough to become a docent. The tours can be a little like speed dating, a subject with which Les Flâneurs actually have little first hand experience, that always leaves you wanting for more. And someday soon, we plan to return to this fabulous place.
Other highlights of our 36 hours in Denver, other than those covered in Eat, included a visit to Union Station, which we accessed via the Free Mall Ride Bus, and a stroll around the Civic Center Park.
