For a while now, beetle kill forests and trees have been a hot topic in Colorado; the mountain pine beetle has killed a large number of our lodgepole pines. Those red, dead trees you see as you drive up I-70 are beetle killed pines. The lodgepole pines make up about 8% of our 22 million […]
It’s one of my favorite times of the year – the Denver Film Festival! From November 4 – 15, the Denver Film Festival will take over the city with about 250 films, from more than 40 countries.
The Source is one of the renovated warehouses in RiNo, housing restaurants, a coffee shop, a brewery, a grocer, a bank, etc…as well as a bunch of start-up companies. Most notably, the Source includes Acorn, which has been on “top restaurant” lists for the past year. It’s one of Denver’s hottest newer restaurants, and personally, […]
In case you forgot how awesome LoHi is, we’re here to remind you again! So many cool places have opened, or are going to open soon, that it’s just ridiculous. If you’ve been keeping up with the blog, I don’t need to tell you this, so let’s dive into them now!

So this is welcome news – construction has started! This will be the Whole Foods flagship store for Denver, and it will offer extended catering […]
It’s no secret that the city of Edgewater is growing rapidly, which is funny because the city is only about a square mile. It’s located just west of Sheridan and Sloan’s Lake, between 17th and 26th Avenues to Pierce St. It’s a short jaunt over to West Highlands and also to the west side of town […]
