Whenever rock stars come to Denver, we read in the newspaper that they shop at two unique stores downtown: Rockmount Ranch Wear and Cry Baby Ranch. Rockmount introduced the first western shirts with snaps and the first commercially produced bolo ties. Rockmount’s founder, Jack Weil, still works at the store daily at the age of 107! The store has been at 1626 Wazee Street in LoDo since it opened in 1946. Cry Baby Ranch is located at 1421 Larimer Street in historic Larimer Square. If you’re looking for western goods and tchotchkes, you can find clothing, gifts, baby items, music, linens, as well as items for your home and garden. There’s plenty of other shopping and dining in Larimer Square, plus a favorite Denver hangout for coffee, The Market. Check out your options at

Two shopping malls anchor the 16th Street Mall: Denver Pavilions, a block and a half from the Grand Hyatt, and Tabor Center at the northwest end of 16th Street. And, of course you’ll find many places in-between where you can stock up on Colorado Rockies (and Nuggets and Broncos and Avalanche and Crush) wear, and commemorative souvenirs of the upcoming Democratic National Convention.

Join in some HILARITY ;-) Partake in a reception sponsored by the Maryland Office of Meyer, Scherer & Rockcastle, Ltd. and share your research with colleagues.


So far we will be showcasing :
Josias Thomas Joesler Project
Restoring Ancient Stabiae Project
SAH’s Architecture Visual Resource Network

Do you have a research project or collaboration you would like your fellow Architecture sectionists to know about?


A SLAM is a string of one-minute presentations of announcements which are intended to persuade your colleagues to spend more time with you discussing your research and/or potential collaborations during our informal reception following our business meeting.

Here’s the process if you want to participate:
1. SLAM participants (those who have a research project or collaboration announcement) identify themselves to Patti Cossard before the Denver Conference

2. Prior to the conference, provide Patti with:
a) one paragraph description of your project or what type of collaboration is sought
b) one powerpoint slide of an image that is representative of the project

3. Prepare a one minute (maximum) oral presentation of project or call for collaboration…don’t go over Patti will be manning a “gong” which will mean your time is up!

Prior to our Section meeting on Saturday May 3, 5-6pm, Patti will collate descriptions, assign participant a spot in the meeting room for longer conversation with interested colleagues and create a handout for section meeting attendees so they can find you!

Patti will also collate slides into one power point presentation and will organize the slide show during your one minute presentation.

At the section meeting, SLAM Participants will be lined up in the order of their reception spots.

Remember Patti will be [wo]manning the gong and will be doing her best to bring a creative certain sense of hilarity to the event ;-)
