Faces of Denver

One woman has recently devoted herself to changing what Denver’s daily morning grind means. Nelicia Miranda-Troup lived in Arvada, CO for a majority of her life before traveling and then eventually relocating to Westminster, CO.

3 Signs You’re Dating A Cuffer

Detecting Cuffers

Cuffing season is upon us, officially starting on November 1, running until Valentine’s Day. The Urban Dictionary defines cuffing season as follows: “During the fall and winter months people who would normally rather be single or promiscuous find themselves desiring to be ‘cuffed’ or tied down by a serious relationship. The cold weather and prolonged indoor activity causes singles to become lonely and desperate to be cuffed.” A simpler definition is singles who venture out looking for someone with whom to spend the winter and dump them before spring arrives. Recently get into a relationship?... Read More

Backstage: Denver Improv Festival

October 23rd, 2018
Denver Improv Festival

‘Tis the season! For ghosts and ghouls and turkey dinners and a depressing-exhilarating amount of gifts to be given and received. It’s inflatable witches and kandy korn and all sorts of treats and festivities for all of us, no matter how secular or religious we may be. Spoiler alert: I’m not actually a huge fan of Halloween, which makes me feel like a tiny minority amongst my Millennial generation. Dressing up in an elaborate costume and hanging out in a room full of drunk people? That’s what I do on weeknights, all year round. What I’m most excited about for this season is what happens... Read More

Denver Broncos

Doubters may look at Denver’s 45-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals as a needed win over an awful team.  Rookie QB Josh Rosen threw two interceptions that went for scores, the Cardinals had five turnovers, and Arizona dropped to 1-6 in the standings. Sure, the Broncos three wins have come against teams that have a combined 5-14 record, but after a season full of frustration, here are six reasons to look at Denver’s first road win of the season with orange colored glasses. Von Miller – With just 1.5 sacks during Denver’s four-game losing streak, Miller called out Arizona and his own... Read More

Monday Motivation: The Power of Visioning!

October 22nd, 2018
vision boarding

If I asked you to think about someone you love, an image of that person comes to mind, right?  You don’t think of that person’s name spelled out, you imagine what they look like.  If I asked you to think of a place you would want to go on vacation, you might begin to imagine a beach, or a ski resort, or some image in your mind of what that vacation would look like.  Our minds think in pictures.  Although this is a written article, as you consider these things you are imagining, you see a picture in your head, not the word “beach” or the name of the person you are thinking about.  Pause... Read More

No Vacancy – Local Denverite Reviews Bad Times at the El Royale

Bad Times at the El Royale

One of the worst clichés in the history of film is also one of the most accurate. I think you know it, and when I tell you what it is, your response will likely range between rolling your eyes indulgently and a desire to burn down your nearest movie theater and salt the earth. It’s when a filmmaker says, “I wanted New York/Gotham City/Oz to feel like a character.” I know, I know, I can hear your chortling from here. That still doesn’t change the fact that it’s a true statement, though! Places have character. They can feel very distinctive. We’ve all walked into a building or across... Read More
