Denver – White Christmas

It’s rare that the weather cooperates and does exactly what it should at the moment it should be done.  But last night that happened! 

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.

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.

 
If you’re familiar with the play (or the Bing Crosby movie it’s based on), you’ll know that its most famous song is “I’m Dreaming of a White Christmas” and that the story ends happily when it finally snows on Christmas Eve. 
 
As we left the theatre, we were delighted to see that, as if on cue, it was snowing outside as it had been on stage — we would have our very own white Christmas!
