There’s No Place Like Steuben’s

January 31st, 2018

Click your ruby red slippers together three times, and I’m sure you’ll end up at Steuben’s. There’s something for everyone here, as this restaurant prides itself on a modern touch of the classic American style dishes you’d find at your favorite local food spot. While “American” to some might only mean one style of food, at Steuben’s they see America as the great melting pot of culture, which is showcased through their variety of foods. They wanted to evoke memories, to make you feel as though you were right back in your own neighborhood ordering the falafel... Read More

Brady vs. Foles – Why the Broncos Should Care

January 30th, 2018

                    As John Elway educates himself on Eagles potential free-agent quarterback Nick Foles next Sunday, he may want to take a refresher course in American History. History has taught us that you need a Hall of Fame quarterback to win the Super Bowl, and not just competent ones like Nick Foles, Case Keenum, or Kirk Cousins.  And when Tom Brady heads to the victory parade with his shiny new pair of Uggs, holding his 6th Lombardi Trophy, Elway may want to jot down some notes. There have been 51 Super Bowls and if we assume that Tom Brady,... Read More

Collidoscope at Pearl’s/Your Mom’s House

January 30th, 2018

The better the band, the later they play. This sometimes-inconvenient reality dictated that the band I was going to see didn’t start until, technically, the day *after* the date stamped on the ticket. I found myself shivering on an ice-caked sidewalk at half past midnight, clutching a ticket and thinking seriously about the wisdom of late-night shows after the age of 30. The sidewalk was outside Pearl’s/Your Mom’s House, a bar/music venue that opened just about a year ago in Capitol Hill. A guy with multiple facial tattoos checked my ID (“Reynaldo” on the cheekbone... Read More

Heat for Dummies

January 28th, 2018

There’s a very real conundrum at the heart of film criticism. On the one hand, most people don’t really understand exactly how hard it is to make a movie. First, you need a script that’s either a) good, b) marketable, or c) both. Then you need to figure out how much it’s all going to cost. Then you need to get your hands on the budget. Then you need to actually make the movie and deal with the million-and-one problems that accompany the filmmaking process. Finally, you need to get your movie in front of other people’s eyeballs, and pray to eight pound, six ounce, newborn baby Jesus that... Read More

Ice Castles at Dillon Town Park

January 27th, 2018

For a weekend of frozen fun, head up to Dillon Town Park and see the famous Ice Castles! Better hurry though – they’re only here until the weather warms up and there’s no guarantee they’ll be back next year. The Ice Castles change location every winter, and it’s been a while since we’ve had them in our state. Tickets can be bought on location or online at http://icecastles.com/dillon/ (buying online comes with a discount). Definitely wear warm clothes and winter boots, as the ground can get a bit slushy. You’ll also want to stay dry when you hurl yourself down the ice slides,... Read More

In A Clench? It’s Not Good For Your Teeth.

January 25th, 2018

If you ever wake up in the morning with a tight or sore jaw, fatigue, or sensitive teeth, you could be grinding or clenching your teeth at night.  The condition, known as bruxism, can lead to headaches and dental problems. Teeth grinding can be caused by stress and anxiety,  and it often occurs during sleep, caused by an abnormal bite or missing or crooked teeth. More importantly, bruxism can be caused by sleep apnea. Obstructive sleep apnea occurs when the throat muscles relax during the night, blocking the airway and interrupting breathing. About 25% of people with obstructive sleep apnea grind... Read More

8 Reasons For Non-Poets to Attend Poetry Open Mics

January 25th, 2018

Not everyone loves literature in the loud and proud, raise your banner, “I was an English major!” kind of way. Many literature-lovers are the closeted bookworm variety; they are the escape artists who slip away to the inner worlds which literature so magnificently delivers. Outside of book clubs, groups formed specifically to turn reading into a casual, social activity, and classroom environments, spaces reserved for the academics to hold their brainy discursive discussions, there are few environments where one might exercise their love of literature in an interactive setting. The space you’re... Read More

Home-Made Style Quick Eats

January 24th, 2018

Gone are the days when quick dining meant a burger with questionable meat, soggy fries, and “chicken” nuggets. We now live in a time when we can actually get a quick and healthy bite to eat while we’re on the go. However, despite the shift in healthy food choices, there are still places that lack the quality you’d hope to have. Wilted salads, bland sandwiches, and a lack of options can turn the “healthy” choice into “just another fast food place”. I’m a big believer in actually enjoying and appreciating the food that you eat, so it’s nice when you can tell the... Read More
