Another Year, Another Steer

Slugger & DenverLast Friday, January 24th, The Brown Palace welcomed Slugger and Denver to Afternoon Tea in the Atrium Lobby at the annual prize-winning livestock event. The Brown Palace has a long-standing tradition of welcoming livestock into the hotel thanks to the National Western Stock Show held in Denver each winter. The 2014 NWSS Grand Champion Steer and Reserve Bull walked the red carpet and posed for photos with Denver’s cow town fans and rodeo queens alike.

True to form, the Brown Palace was jam packed with cowboys and rodeo queens sitting down to Afternoon Tea and reveling in the Western culture brought together by two of Denver’s oldest traditions.

Thanks to everyone who came out to enjoy one of the Wild West’s favorite annual events, we can’t wait to see you all again next year.
