If you were hanging around LoDo last night, you might have had a chance meeting with President Barack Obama as he moseyed the streets, shaking hands and making stops along the way.
After Air Force One touched down at DIA, the commander-in-chief made his way to Wazee Supper Club, causing road closures along the route—including Brighton Boulevard, which impacted access to the Source. Obama shared some 'za with five Coloradans who wrote in to the White House with stories of working through today's economy. Among patrons watching the Rockies game, the prez greeted the crowd and—fittingly—was offered a little toke of the state's new-found revenue source.
Post-dinner, Obama made his way through LoDo, shaking hands and even encountering a guy wearing a horse-head mask, no doubt drawing suspicion from the Secret Service detail.

Passing by the Squeaky Bean, owner Johnny Ballen squeezed in a quick chat with Obama, the topic of which he shared on Twitter.

After more handshaking and photo ops, the POTUS wrapped up the evening at Wynkoop Brewing Company, where who should he meet up with but Governor John Hickenlooper. The two politicos drank some beer and shot some pool, with El Presidente emerging victorious.
