Day 2: Sports Authority Field at Mile High
9NEWS Business Reporter Gregg Moss has been going all over town showing how the community is united in orange.
On Wednesday, Gregg visited Sports Authority Field at Mile High. At first, he gave viewers an up-close look at the preparations for the field. He also explained how field experts keep the grass so green. Gregg also revealed that Sports Authority has their own meteorologist on staff to help them know what to expect on game day.
Secondly, he showed off an in-house print shop which is responsible for printing all the signs and banners around the field.
Lastly, he mentioned how if he were to step onto the field, alarms would go off and he would be most likely arrested. Did you know there were sensors under the field?
Day 1: Pete's Kitchen
Pete Contos' lifetime love of the restaurant business began the first day he arrived in Denver from Greece in 1956 when he watched a bartender mixing drinks and talking to customers. He went on to work his way up in the business from dishwasher, busboy and bar-back to bartender, which he call his "trade".
His entrepreneurial spirit would lead him to own such unique Denver businesses as the Satire Lounge, Olympic Flame, Pete's Kitchen, Pete's Gyros Place, Pete's University Park Cafe, Pete's Central, Pete's Ice Cream & Coffee, Pete's Greektown Cafe and The Bank Bar & Grill.
Over the years, he has quietly lent a helping hand to people in need, whether it's paying medical bills, lending money to buy homes or financing an education. He is known to help former employees to start their own business and regularly does such humanitarian deeds as serving holiday dinners to the elderly and neighborhood people.
A dedicated family man with a quick wit, Pete is one of the biggest Broncos fans in Denver. He keeps his door open and his cell phone on to anyone in need and has no plans to retire anytime soon saying "I'm having too much fun. I wish everyone would love their job as much as I do."
