1) What are some things I should do in Denver in my free time? Must see spots? Restaurants?

2) Any place where there is a chance to meet the players? Autographs?

3) Open practices or anything?

I may have missed stuff, so basically anything you can think of that may be of value to someone coming to Denver for the first time. Thanks in advance.
1) I've been to Denver several times, but I'm a sports nut so I ALWAYS make time to go to Altitude Authentics (Team store in Pepsi Center), as well as walking around the 16th St Mall. Cherry Creek Mall is in a seemingly more "upscale" area, and I am 99.9% sure I saw JM Liles walking around there when he was playing in Colorado. Restaurants will vary, because they have a lot of places that are nationwide, but there is a nice restaurant I visited last time I was there, I believe they served more Hispanic/Mexican/Spanish food, I remember I had some of the BEST Steak Soft Tacos I've ever had there, I'll ask my GF if she remembers the name and Edit my post

2) & 3) The best possible place to try and meet players/get autographs IS at the Team Practices.
