April 2017 Around Town

The Summer Camp Your Kids Will Never Forget

For a state that has everything to offer, it’s amazing that we still hear those two dreaded words from our kids, “I’m bored!” Well, guess what? We’ve got a remedy for that this summer. Community Sailing of Colorado offers an incredible series of summer camps for kids ages 5-17 in Boulder and Denver. Learn to Sail, Intermediate, Advanced, and even a Stand Up Paddleboard/Windsurfing Camp are all part of what we do to cure the summer boredom blues. We even trick campers into learning through experiential education as we help bring the physics of sailing to life. Camps run from 9:00 am-3:30 pm (M-F) and in just one week we help them become confident sailors through applied problem solving, teamwork and creativity. We also have Free Sail Nights for the whole family to join in the fun! For more information visit, CommunitySailing.org.

Denver International Wine Festival Recognized by Food and Wine Magazine

The Denver International Wine Festival has been recognized by Food and Wine magazine as one of the “Best Wine Festivals Across America.”

From the many wine festivals around the country, it was recognized along with renowned festivals such as the Food and Wine Classic in Aspen, the Nantucket Wine Festival, Taste Washington and the New York Wine Experience.

Organized by wine journalists rather than a local promotion board, the Denver International Wine Festival draws in winemakers from across the globe, many of them underrepresented at similar festivals. (Esoteric wines are welcome; Hungarian wines were a highlight of the 2016 event.) The Pairsine Chefs Fine Food and Wine Pairing Competition is a yearly favorite, where Colorado chefs compete to create dishes paired with two standout wines, with the audience tasting and determining the winner. Wine tours show off several of Colorado’s still little-known wineries”.

Now in its 13th year, the Denver International Wine Festival, hosted by Wine Country Network, Inc., attracts vintners from around the world and showcases the largest selection of international and domestic wines at any Grand Tasting in the Rocky Mountain region. Its signature wine and food pairing event, Pairsine, features some of Colorado’s top chefs creating gourmet food pairings for gold-medal wines from the Denver International Wine Competition and draws hundreds of attendees each year. The 2017 Denver International Wine Festival will take place November 1-3 at the Denver Marriott Westminster. DenverWineFest.com
