Born in the magical town of Springfield, PA, Deb Lastowka moved to Denver in the summer of 2007 and now happily calls it home. Deb currently runs a blog called, Dear Denver, which is a blog devoted to the mile high.

Although it is a city that doesn’t like to boast about its radness, Denver is a place that encapsulates a growing arts, music, comedy, dining, and drinking scene. If you don’t know, it’s a lot more than the Broncos, green chili, and the bubonic chronic.

This blog presents accessible city itineraries (posed as letters to the city) to hopefully satisfy the varied interests of both visitors and current city dwellers. Dear Denver also hosts a myriad of local lists devoted to the mile high, written by local residents/quasi-celebs, on what they enjoy most about living 5,280 feet above sea level. Random Recs, Pro Tips, and unique cultural events are highlighted as well, in hopes of encouraging readers to expose themselves to something they wouldn’t normally do and/or discover something different about this fine city.
