Denver is not NYC so given a functional GPS you should get around just fine. There are street map apps that dont use cell phone data, have a contained data base. Apps to have:
urbanspoon - find a restaurant w/i any initial knowledge
waze - street conditions
mapquest - free english street maping
-reference google maps: the denver gay bro (Cap Hill) is about north of hwy 6, sough of Colfax Ave, east of Lincoln Ave and West of Colorado blvd and includes Cheeseman Park. if you run do it at Cheeseman Park (new meat).
There are a few nice bed & breakfast establishments to stay in the gaybro. Restaurants are scatter all around Denver and few nice ones are in the cap hill area. The gay bro neighborhood has become expensive and most gays have assimilated all over Denver. Avoid Aurora unless you know what your doing, also east Colfax to some extent. Boulder is a smaller expensive college town with a nice town mall area. Denver has the same but a little rougher; 16th street mall and you can get the sovienier's there
