2014 Pulitzer Prize Winner

Rockies: The Rooftop (photos)

The Rockies know how to throw a party.

(The whole winning-games thing? Still working on it.)

The latest addition to Cancun Fiel… or, Coors Field, is The Rooftop. It’s a 38,000-square foot party deck above right field, so high Michael Cuddyer looks more like a baetis than a batting champ.

Here’s the beauty of The Rooftop: After a few innings in the party deck, you won’t care what Cuddy looks like, or who’s pitching, or that nagging column you need to finish, or the score of the game. The party deck adds two more bars, including one with 52 beer taps, according to tour guide/team owner Dick Monfort.

“For a while we were known for our Rocky Mountain oysters,” Monfort reminded, and now there’s more food/drink options than Larimer Square. Not to mention Vegas-style cabanas (see below).

(These photos were snapped from my phone today. Clearly, I’m no Mark Reis.) 

So say what we will about the Rockies’ win-loss record.

But they sure know how to party.
