Casa Bonita (http://www.casabonitadenver.com/), a Denver landmark made infamous in the South Park episode (http://www.southparkzone.com/episode.php?vid=711) of the same name, is described by Cartman as "Colorado's version of a Mexican Disneyland."
The theme restaurant features a huge indoor waterfall with cliff divers, travel mariachi bands, escaping gorillas, cowboy shootouts, lost caves and caverns, amusement arcade, old time photos, puppet shows and more.
My wife Cyndi and 5-yr daughter PJ will host a little get together for Web Directions North attendees and their families as well any in the Denver web or mobile community that feel like joining us. We'll provide the pitchers of beers and margaritas.
An opportunity to witness such kitschy awesomeness can't be passed up!
Feel free to contact us for more details: http://flingmedia.com/contact
NOTE: We found out from Casa Bonita that everyone has to purchase a meal as "admission." So we are asking that everyone pitch in $15 per person and we'll cover the rest of the tab, including all the drinks.

And just like that the dream dies. Delayed flight, no Casa Bonita for me after all.
Will be staying for the educational task force so we'll see what time I can get out.
Frick, it doesn't look like I'm be able to make it down the mountain after all tonight. Sorry chaps!
Looks like a 15 minute drive from the conference hotel. Meet at the lobby at 6:40 and cab over?
I'm going to head over at 6 to reserve all the tables, but yes, like Dave suggested everyone should meet in the lobby around 6:30 or 6:40 and shared taxi's.
Ack! Sorry, thought I could make it, but my hubby took the car and the last bus home leaves before we'd probably be seated! Hopefully I'll meet a bunch of you tomorrow.
Thanks to everyone who came out last night. I hope you had as much fun as we had. Casa Bonita certainly lived up to everything I remembered.
Plus now I know why my parents only took me there once. Hands down that was the worst meal I've ever had.
My plane lands 6:15pm, should be able to hit the hotel and meet up with you all in time to come along. Yay!
