Denver: Crowd control

Street food, baby. You can snag Venezuelan specialties from Quiero Arepas and vegetarian loco moco from the Steamin’ Demon, a piled-high elk jalapeño cheddar brat from Biker Jim’s hot-dog cart (pictured), and that’s just a start. From June to September, we have Civic Center Eats Outdoor Café, a lunch party for happy workday eaters, with more than 20 local vendors. And food trucks? We lost count after 40.

Score: 8
