Day two in Denver!

Well, it's our second day in Denver and we're a little tired from yesterday's many events! After finishing up at Leela's on 15th and Stout, we rushed to the nearest TV to catch Michelle Obama's speech at the Pepsi Center. Michelle pointed out the similarities between she and Barack's upbringings. She focused on the importance of unity in our country, using her own familial life as a prime example. She mentioned the guiding influence of her older brother, Craig Robinson, who introduced her at the convention. She concluded her remarks with the statement, "All of us are driven by a simple belief that the world as it is just won't do - that we have an obligation to fight for the world as it should be." (To Check out more on the speech head to CNN.com!)

After Michelle's powerful speech,  we totally felt an energetic vibe floating around Denver. The street was FILLED with crowds and crowds of people ready to have a good time (us among them). Attempting to fit as much as we could into one night, we taxied over to the Ogden theater and jammed to the sounds of Robert Randolph and the Family Band. After hearing a few songs, we headed to the powerhouse of NERD and Fall Out Boy (Pretty sick...). But after a long day of registering, two concerts in one night was enough for us and we headed off to bed... only to hear that tonight we have passes to listen to Hillary speak at the Pepsi Center! 
We'll blog more on that later....time to register more voters! Oh, but before we forget, check out Zac Efron's new PSA he made just for us! (It's a couple posts below!)
