It's not too high elevation, and it's not too far from Denver.
Bayou Bob's (restaurant) in downtown Denver might be a place you could meet other Saints fans before or after the game. The menu is fairly limited, and the food is decent. I don't think they have buckets though, the only place you're going to get that here is Joe's Crab Shack.
COlorado STate in town for a blowout? Even so, if you are a fan of New Belgium Brewery (Fat Tire beer), this is your place. Also, go up the 6 past GOlden to Central City and Black Hawk. Cool and old mining towns turned into gambling spots. Idaho Springs is on the other side and you can still get there going through there which has a brewery and cool old town.
