Teach Your Dog to Bike with You!

June 30th, 2017

I love summer in Colorado. I love hiking, biking, and camping. And I especially love to do those activities with my dog. Teaching my dog to hike and camp was easy, but teaching my loyal companion to bike was another story. I love biking for exercise and ending at a brewery to reward myself; but I hated leaving my pup at home. So, I taught him to bike with me! This week I decided to share my experiences and five-step process. Acclimate the Dog Bikes can be scary for our four legged friends. So, it is very important to let them sniff the bike in a nonthreatening way. As your dog sniffs the bike,... Read More

The Birth of Cool

June 30th, 2017

  In order to stay fresh and original within a vast sea of microbreweries, many of Denver’s owners and brewers have taken to theming their businesses. Breweries like Ratio, which connects the beer industry to all things music, TRVE, a truly heavy metal establishment through and through, Fiction, a brewery for total book nerds, and Grandma’s House, aptly named for a decorated taproom pulled literally from your grandma’s 1980s basement, are just to name a few. It is helpful to know what you’re in the mood for or where you belong, if not just for the day. For a unique taste of history,... Read More

Are You Optimizing Your Health?

June 29th, 2017

There is widespread agreement among those in the scientific and health care communities, that certain behaviors contribute greatly to preventable chronic disease, improve productivity and impact health. In 2000, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimated that four lifestyle-related behavioral risk factors accounted for approximately 40% of all deaths in the United States. The optimal lifestyle metric (OLM), reflects adherence to these four positive health behaviors: not using tobacco, exercising at least 150 minutes per week, consuming at least five fruits and vegetable... Read More

Faces of Denver – The Family at Hunter Bay Roasters

June 28th, 2017

Hunter Bay Roasters, a brand new addition to the Denver area, is a high-energy coffee shop right in the heart of Olde Town Arvada. Hunter Bay’s roots are in Missoula, Montana, and if you’ve ever been through Missoula, you may just confuse it for a Colorado mountain town. The outdoor culture and adventurous yet socially conscious vibe that is instilled in Hunter Bay is a perfect fit for Olde Town Arvada, making it an instant hit among the local community. Grabbing a coffee or kombucha here feels a bit like a Friday night at a brewery, and it’s the kind of place where the barista knows your... Read More

The Top Four Changes To Denver In The Last Five Years — As Told By Denver Natives

June 27th, 2017

If you’ve heard it once, you’ve probably heard it a dozens times — Denver is a changing city. This is because there has been a huge influx of people into our city in the last five years with the legalization of marijuana in 2012, and whether these new Coloradans moved here to enjoy the benefits of marijuana itself, or to engage with our growing economy, the fact is the Denver Metropolitan population now has a growth rate of 1.6%. This places it as one of the fastest growing areas in the nation. It also means major changes have subsequently occured — as happens to any city when... Read More

Just Where We Want Them

June 27th, 2017

The Los Angeles Dodgers took care of business this past weekend with a series sweep over the Colorado Rockies. The Rockies were thoroughly outplayed as the Dodger bats dominated the young Colorado pitching staff. While some may look at the loss as a missed opportunity, the reality is that the Rockies may have played it just right. A series loss simply means that everyone keeps the status quo. The Rockies come back home for the thin air, cold microbrews, just a few games back, and the Dodgers pick up their cars from the valet and head to some Botox appointment near Redondo Beach before heading... Read More

The Media’s Credibility Is Going Up In Smoke

June 27th, 2017

The way a media outlet frames a story is essential and can influence our understanding of it. Their version of a story can affect public opinion or generate awareness in a community. Historically they have been the ones to deliver the facts, less so when the topic of cannabis comes up though. By now we all realize that marijuana is not the harmful substance the last few generations believed it to be. I would wager that most of our nightly news correspondents have even tried it. So, if we are all on the same page about this stuff, then why does the media treat it so flippantly? The media seems incapable... Read More
