In the 5 years we have lived in Denver, we have yet to take the family to Casa Bonita. Casa Bonita has been around for, I think, at least 30 years and Mark has fond memories of this place as a child!
Marks parents called us up on Wednesday to see if we would like to go to support Sheridan school district so we happily agreed! If you ever visit Denver, stop on by Casa Bonita- its lots of fun!
Grandpa gave them some pennies to throw in the fountain.
Their menu is very slim and has had a reputation of being not very great...
but I REALLY liked my chili rellenos- I thought they tasted really good!
But what you really go to Casa Bonita for is the atmosphere! It looks like a Mexican town complete with Mariachi bands, Cliff divers, Caves, etc.
While we were there, they had a cliff diver, fire juggler, and a gorilla skit.
Mark was teaching Arianna how to eat sopipias.
(I apologize for spelling all these Mexican dishes and terms wrong)
You can actually walk behind the waterfall and look out- pretty cool!
I hate that this picture is blurry!!!!
The little ones didnt want to go in the scary cave- it really was a bit scary- I dont like to be "surprised"! Mark and I went through together:)
At the end, the kids get to pick a piece of candy from the treasure chest!
It was a FUN night and extra fun experience!
