Here are some indulgences for taking a break during the conference (or hanging out with colleagues at midnight – you know you want too!)
Denver now has a Pinkberry – the trendy yogurt place with exotic and interesting flavors. It is very close to the conference hotel, so check it out when you need a little break or “fun food”.
Pinkberry 16th Street Mall
1600 Glenarm Pl 130
Denver, CO 80202
P 303 592 7465
Sun – Thurs 11 AM – 11 PM
Fri + Sat 11 Am – 12 AM

The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory ( http://rmcf.com) has high quality chocolates that you can buy by the pound so you can buy just one for your chocolate craving, or a bunch to take back home. (My weakness is their peanut butter chocolate sticks!)
There are two locations downtown.
Rocky Mt Chocolate Factory – in The Pavillions
500 16th St, Denver, Colorado – (303) 629-5500
(The Pavilions is a big outdoor mall complex on 16th Street that spans several blocks, you can’t miss it!). This is quite near the hotel.
Rocky Mt Chocolate Factory at Writer’s Square
Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory
Writer’s Square, 1512 Larimer St., Denver, CO 80202
Tel: 1-800-322-2854 or (local) 303-623-1887
This location is on the 16th Street Mall, right near the shuttle stop at 16th and Larimer, in Writer’s Square.
Sanfe Fe Cookie Co (aka “The Cookie Lady)
She is open from 10am to 3pm and has been called the “best secret cookie place in Denver.” Check out http://www.denverpost.com/ci_12497797 for more info and to see a photo.
The deal is, 3 great cookies for $1 on the honor system: just stick a buck in the bucket (or change on the counter). My friends say it’s “YUM!” and that the cookies go fast!
To get to the Cookie Lady in the Republic Plaza food court, you access the food court from the 16th Street Mall by walking down a set of stairs to access it (it is near a Starbucks – thought that doesn’t tell you much, since there are about 15 Starbucks downtown!). The Cookoie Lady is next to the card shop AvantCard.
