• 16 Tea for Two Steers

Each year the Brown Palace Hotel in downtown Denver hosts the top steer from the National Western Stock Show.  This year’s top steer was deemed too skittish to make a solo appearance in the ornate hotel, so his runner-up came along for company.  I interviewed the hotel general manager, Miss Colorado Rodeo, the boy who raised Titan, and my friend Michael Drummy and his sister-in-law, among others.  I love this event for combining Denver’s elegance with its cow country history.
