Chapter 7 …
…Life could be a lot of fun when Tom Brookshier was around. And I’m not the only friend or acquaintance of the late broadcaster to feel that way.
My best story goes back 25 years when Brookshier came to Denver for a fund-raising event for the University of Colorado, his alma mater. He arrived a day early so he could spend an evening at Brendle’s, an elegant restaurant and bar on Market Street in LoDo.
The establishment, which closed several years ago, was named after the late Bill Brendle, a legendary sports publicist and Brookshier’s close personal friend. Brookshier, who had never been to Brendle’s invited me to join him for “a quick, quiet dinner.” Quick, as in five hours later and anything but quiet.
Brookshier entertained other guests and the restaurant staff with humorous stories about broadcasting, football and Brendle, who died in 1982.
Obviously, a night to remember.
