DENVER – Mayor Michael Hancock toured several of the Mile High City's unique neighborhoods during the second edition of what is hoped to be a new summertime tradition.

Denver Days is meant to create stronger neighborhoods by planning service projects and gatherings.

Hancock stopped by Tocabe Restaurant Saturday morning to meet with the Denver American Indian Commission.

Tocabe, which means "blue corn" in the Osage language, is an American Indian eatery. They said they were excited to be a part of Denver Days.

"To us, Denver Days is an opportunity for us to share our story, share our native stories and share our native cuisine," Walt Pourier with the Stronghold Society said.

If the name "Tocabe" seems familiar, it's because you may have seen it on an episode of the Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

"We wanted to be an added benefit to what Denver is, and show that American Indian culture can be a very predominant force in Denver," Matthew Chandra, Tocabe's cofounder, said.

Denver Days continues on Sunday.
