thumbnail for First Baptist ChurchThe First Baptist Church of Denver, located at 14th Ave & Grant St in the heart of Capitol Hill, is the oldest Baptist congregation in Colorado. The building that stands now was built in the 1930's, but organization of the church itself took place during the Civil War and actually predates the statehood of Colorado. #CapitolHill

thumbnail for Opal RestaurantThe sign says "Nouveau American Restaurant." If you have no idea what that mean, then you're not alone! Opal is a sushi restaurant/bar/lounge/awesome place to eat, drink, enjoy some music and sake, and even learn to dance (they offer salsa lessons on Friday nights.) Get together with some friends for late night happy hour in the bar area (couch seating) before you hit one of the many clubs within walking distance (and make sure you try the 'Opal roll'....don't ask, just order it!) #GoldenTriangle
