Let It Ride

The SUV world is in an interesting place in 2019. The options are endless and the features can border on excessive. When it comes down to it, what are the real reasons for driving one? 

Sky’s The Limit

Look up flights. Book a flight. Pack your bags. Check-in. Figure out transportation to the airport, then to your destination. Coordinate schedules, and book hotels. Once the trip is over, make the return flight home.

Lifestyle Letter

August and September have a tendency to drag on and on. Fall, perhaps the most wondrous time of year in Colorado, is right there. It can practically be felt in the air and seen in the leaves. But it isn’t here, not quite. As kids and teachers bravely head back to school for more teaching … Continued

Having The Time of His Life

Colorado likely isn't the first place coming to mind when thinking of art scenes. Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, and Seattle can hog the artistic spotlight in the West and Pacific Northwest, while Chicago, Austin, Philadelphia, and New York fill up the map when heading East. 

Art Festival Smash in the Square

Let The Record Show

In 2008, a trio of local Denver musicians had a big idea: what if they could use music as a tool to empower Denver’s at-risk youth? What if they could harness the power and passion of local artists to help underserved kids learn, grow, and flourish within the creative community?

An Indelible Experience

While seated at a table in his deli, Anthony Lygizos is laughing and making jokes and sharing stories as if we’re old friends. My water glass is constantly full, his hospitable nature on full display.

New to the Game

“It’s hard to be an entrepreneur and work in a niche realm,” Kelly Ernst says with a laugh. “Because if you do something that everyone likes, then everyone will give you their business.”

Stylistic Speed

I feel the term “cookie-cutter” is far too common of a word used when it comes to choosing a car. Why, might one ask? Because vehicles today do not have a personality anymore. They’re cold, robotic and there are too many of the same model within the square mile you live in. When is the last time you pulled up…

Welcome to the Neighborhood, Ivy on 7th

Across from Governor’s Park is a lovely patio that has been peppered with patrons either chatting over coffee, reading, or working on their laptops for the last couple of months, ever since Ivy on 7th took over the space that used to belong to Lala’s, Sparrow, and other editions of Denver’s foodie scene. Ivy on 7th is owned by the…

Hello, Readers

After four years of college where I willingly chose to get a degree in Sociology—which does not equate to a real job for the most part—I knew that I wanted to be a writer.    The only problem was that being a writer did not equate to a job either. In fact, “being a writer” … Continued

August 2019 Around Town

Denver Compost Challenge 50% of what goes into the Denver landfill is food and yard waste. This material releases methane gas which contributes to climate change. We can decrease both the size of the landfill and methane pollution while nourishing our soil and gardens by composting. Today, only 4% of Cherry Creek residents compost. The Denver … Continued

Rock the Climb

Emphasizing physical health and well-being is a signature throughout many of Colorado’s communities. From outdoor adventure sports to race training and more, Denver, in particular, is an area known for its focus on fitness. According to Christa Dellebovi, head trainer with Rise Nation, it’s for this reason that the city was primed for a new, unique workout experience.

Sweet Summertime

Summertime is a magical season. The kids are out of school, the sunshine seems never-ending and there’s no shortage of adventures that await. For many, summer evokes fond memories of childhood: sleepaway camp, family vacations and swimming until your fingers shriveled like prunes. We also celebrate our nation’s independence, host parties for our friends and … Continued

It’s Electric

It's the 21st century, yet we're still using engine technology from a century ago. I won't lie—I am a lover of a good exhaust note from an automobile; however, times are changing, and the electric car industry is making a name for itself in this modern era. With companies like Tesla leading the board, many have asked who will bring competition to…

While studying in the United States during their college years, Julien Dreyfus and Tommy Tollesson found themselves spending countless hours discussing life over glasses of rosé with new acquaintances. As acquaintances developed into friendships, they came to better understand and appreciate each other’s different respective cultural backgrounds, as well as what would go on to be important to them in life. 

Pinpoint: Nashville

Planning trips this summer, but trying to stay on a budget and not sure where to go? If an out of country vacation isn’t in the cards right now, sometimes a quick three day trip to another city is all you need to refresh your soul and reset. May I suggest Denver to Nashville? This city is only a 2-hour…

It’s A Business, Man

Entrepreneurship is not for the faint of heart. Despite what the number of small businesses lining the streets of Denver might suggest otherwise, possessing both the desire and skill set to successfully run a business is a rare and exciting occurrence.  

Why It’s Worth It: The Case for Flying Charter

For some, the idea of traveling via private charter plane calls to mind an image of opulence and excess; a privilege reserved for movie stars and Kardashians. In reality, private chartering can be a far more time-efficient, cost-conscious and accessible than many realize. While Mountain Aviation — a local private jet charter and management company — can certainly cater to…

Storyteller

Chef Paul Nagan is no stranger to success. After all, when your resume includes words like "Chef of the Year," you've got to be a bit of a legend yourself. Nagan, however, is setting his sights on telling a new story at Cherry Creek's Narrative. And trust us: it's pretty epic. Nagan recently sat down and shared the vision behind the…

Women With A Cause

Every woman has an agenda. Every woman has direction. Every woman has a reason. But more often than not, it’s harder for some to find these things on their own.

Denver Moguls

In the 19th century, “entrepreneur”—from the Old French entreprendre (“undertake”)—was used as a designator for “a manager or promoter of theatrical production.” That is, metaphorically speaking, a perfect descriptor for the following ladies, all of whom are driven by their creativity and independence and bask in the freedom of running their own businesses, which are expressions of their individual imaginations.

The Newest Heavy Hitter in Town

Bret Alexandra. I’d suggest you remember that name because she is among some of the newest heavy hitters stepping up to make this city the arts capital of the west. Bret is a model turned interior designer and founder of The Fourth House (@thefourthhouse), an interior styling company with a focus on thrifted vintage goods.

Superfood

Boundary-pushing Chef Linda Hampsten Fox made a big impact on the Denver dining scene with the opening of her bright, spacious LoHi restaurant The Bindery in late 2017. But even though her name is relatively new to us diners, Colorado isn’t new to her. Linda attended the University of Colorado at Boulder and always knew she’d return—she just needed to cook…

Couples that Can

It’s 6 a.m., and Lauren and John Maggio are blearily looking into each other’s eyes. They will be with each other all day, and well into the evening; after putting long hours into running their exciting new business, and after their kids are put to bed.

Eating Mindfully

“Mindfulness” is one of those buzzwords that’s slapped onto everything from relaxation podcasts to adverts for yoga studios, all of which promise more peace in our frantic world. Apart from the advertisement campaigns, the idea of mindfulness—which originates in Buddhist meditation practices—is fairly simple: be here now.
