After a relaxed and uneventful Christmas Eve Day, Amanda and I went downtown for dinner at a new restaurant called Le Grand Bistro & Oyster Bar. We ordered oysters and soup and hearty winter fare to warm us against the plummeting temperatures outside.

|Lamb shank, raosted root vegetables, fried goat cheese & mint fritter, lamb jus|

Following dinner, we walked across the street to see the closing night performance of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
