As this is one of those questions that don't need an expert I'm going
to take a chance at answering it. Feel free to request more info or a
clarification if you are unsatisfied with the answer.
1. I read in Dear Abby years ago, and it's stuck in my mind all these
years, a young man asking where he could meet a nice girl and she
replied, "At church." I alsways thought this was pretty good advice
although I have never met any of my girlfriends there. Still, if you
are a churchgoer, it's a great place to start. Many churches have
groups for young singles and have various social activites for them.
2.Volunteer. For a cause, a politician or an organization that you
support. Put your talents and time to work for a charitable group and
you are bound to meet many people with common interests.
3. Join a club or team. Think bowling, square dancing, softball,
darts, birdwatching, orienteering, book club, etc.
4. Take a class. Local community colleges offer a wide range of
adult/community ed classes. Learn to speak French or Spanish, grow and
train bonsai, make wine, arrange flowers, tour local historic sites,
The key to all this, really, is to get out there and meet people. Lots
of people! Even if nobody in the groups you join is a possible match,
someone may have a friend or relative who is.
Another advantage to this approach is that you start out in a low
pressure social situation and have time to get to know people before
having to ask someone out.
Search strategy...Well, actually I just pulled it all out of my head.
Good luck with your move!

Ok cmecklen, you're a cut to the chase kind of guy. Let's go with
1. First off, The Snake Pit!
Rated 9 out of ten on Citysearch, you can check out the reviews at...
2. Next we move to, Polly Esthers Culture Club! A quiet little place
that bills itself as..."Bachelorette Party Headquarters!"
Rated a 7.6, most critical comments related to heat and sweat, which
may be a plus with winter coming on!
For some reason I'll never understand, karaoke is a big chick-magnet,
and guy's who get up and sing get noticed.
Another resource is "Digital City: Denver," which has a chat board
with up to date rants and raves about various clubs. Go to the places
the chicks rave about.
I still stick by most of my original answer, but lets see how we can
increase the babe-ratio in some of those suggestions.
1. Church. Can't think of how to tweak this one without messing up my
karma so we'll skip it.
Planned Parenthood. Lot's of idealistic college chicks.
Humane Society, although in this case it's the Denver Animal
Foundation. More idealistic college chicks. Lot's of dogs though
(sorry, I couldn't resist).
3. Join a club or team.
Darts. Definitly a chick game.
Gun club. You'd be surprised.
Enter pistol range in the category field.
Health club. Not the one in the basement of some warehouse, the one at
the mall with the ferns.
4. Take a class.
Community College of Denver
Female Sexuality. Or what?
Modern Dance. If you've got any kind of grace they will be glad to
have you as it adds alot to the gestalt. You will probably not be the
only guy, but you may be the only straight one.I'm not joking, I took
MD for two years and it was great. For your purposes let me say one
Pottery. Always seems to be lots of babes in pottery class.
You mentioned a part-time job, which never occured to me, but if you
have to mix business with pleasure here's the want ads for the Denver
Post. Maybe work part-time in one of those bars, or if you're buff,
the health club! Running an espresso machine (barrista) seems like
another good chick-meeting job.
I hope this is more specific and therefore more useful to you. Thanks
for asking for clarification before rating my answer.
