Now in its 32nd year, June 12th, 13th, & 14th at O’Brien Park, downtown Parker Colorado will once again hold those fun-filled festivities over three full days of entertainment for the entire family. The kids will enjoy carnival rides such as the classic Merry-Go-Round and the Ferris wheel. Horseback riding and other thrill seeking rides are also available to enjoy. Many people love this little town so much many relocate to Parker or search for residential property in Elizabeth, Franktown or Kiowa finding their dream home and never leave.

For more than 31 years “Parker Days” has been a place for people from not only the Parker CO area but from as near and far away as Castle Rock, Denver, Littleton, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Centennial and beyond. More than 100,000 people from all over the Front Range come to enjoy live concerts, carnival rides, food, arts, crafts, and of course a parade with the touch of the Old West featuring floats designed by businesses, churches, schools and organizations.

Parker Colorado Country FestivalParker Days continues to grow and prosper due to the contributions of the entire community, volunteers, local food vendors and business organizations from all over the Denver Metro Area. Soooooooo, wake up Saturday morning on June 13thand head downtown for a GREAT parade that makes its way down Mainstreet.

PanAsia Bistro InteriorMark and I took a break from Denver real estate and celebrated our recent wedding anniversary!  We decided to have our special dinner at the PanAsia Bistro in Englewood, Colorado a restaurant we pass by frequently while showing homes but have never tried.  Actually, I had lunch there several years ago while trying to recruit another real estate agent from another real estate company located in Castle Rock… but never dinner. We were surprised at the lovely interior which was very elegantly appointed and decorated.  We were seated shortly after we arrived at a wonderful table which I believe is front and center of the picture to the right.

They had a great wine selection which pleased us because so often oriental restaurants do not carry extensive selections of wine.   I have to admit it was a bit slow getting our drinks but after that the service was very good.  Along with our wine, we ordered the Lettuce Wraps as an hors d’ouvre.  I had read that the PanAsia Bistro in Englewood had fabulous lettuce wraps…and they do!  Mark had never had lettuce wraps before and they were a big hit with him.

PanAsia Bistro EntranceMark chose the Tender Sizzling Beef Asian Fajitas that arrived with three ‘pancakes’ instead of flour tortillas.  I tasted a bit of one and it was delicious!  Mark loved his entrée and said that 3 ‘pancakes’ of fajitas were very filling.  I selected the Asparagus Beef Rolls which was a new dish for me.  I was served a generous number of rolls (8-10); each roll was made up of a stalk of asparagus around which beef was rolled and they were accompanied by a small bowl of a wonderful sweet au jus type of sauce to dip the rolls into and a bowl of rice.  Wonderful!  We topped off dinner with our favorite dessert of vanilla ice cream with chocolate sauce.

In summary, we had a wonderful time trying this “new to us” restaurant!  The setting was elegant, the service was quite good and the food was wonderful!  Mark and I highly recommend this restaurant to you, your family and friends.
