“The Enigma”, Favorite Artist from the 2015 Colorado Tattoo Convention

My favorite artist from the Tattoo Convention was The Enigma.

He has awesome energy, is friendly and fun, and his tattoos and body modifications are truly amazing.  He is one giant jigsaw puzzle!

His vibe is a kind soul.

The Enigma is not just a canvas for artwork, he is a talented artist, musician, and actor.

He moved to Denver last year and one of his first appearances was reading to the children at our local Mutiny Information Cafe.

You may recall seeing him in 1995 The X-Files Episode “Humbug” where he played The Conundrum.

I also picked up Volume #2 of his comic book series.

Although I went for the Rock’a’billy live music it wasn’t playing while I was there, but I did get to meet The Enigma!

 

Looking for something new to do in Denver?

My daughter and son-in-law have moved to Colorado.  She is in to tattoos and he loves motorcycles and cars.  I wanted to surprise them with something fun this weekend and look what is happening in Denver!

Okay, they also have live music and they got me on the Rock’a’billy.

 

Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey

Who knew Colorado had a fine whiskey brewer?

From the Shanahan’s website:

“This whiskey glowed amber from the start. When volunteer firefighter Jess Graber responded to a neighbor’s barn fire down the road, he never imagined any good could come of it. But the barn he made effort to save belonged to George Stranahan, long-time liquor connoisseur. When the fire settled, the two discovered a shared passion for the Colorado outdoors and a good pour of fine whiskey.”

I took the tour and it was awesome!

Got there early before the tour and hung out in the lounge with a Cherry Mendez consisting of Stranahan’s, Luxardo cherry juice and lime. Yikes! Yummy!!

Signed up for the bottling crew lottery, here is the info from the website:

“We bottle a batch of Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey approximately once every three weeks. We’ll typically bottle on a rotating weekday, and not usually on weekends. On a typical bottling day, we’ll bring in two crews of about 16 volunteers (32 people) each to fill approximately 5,000 bottles of whiskey in total. The day is divided into two shifts – the first crew will work the AM shift, the second crew the PM shift. A typical shift lasts approximately 5 hours and though you’re required to be on your feet and working for the duration, you’d be surprised how quickly time flies.”

Truthfully, I was not a whiskey  connoisseur before the tour but I have gained an appreciation for well crafted whiskey!

Wish me luck in the lottery!
