Is Traveling With Marijuana Illegal in 2018?

October 16th, 2018

As weed became legal in several more states this year, you can now legally consume it in 9 states including California, Alaska, Colorado, Maine, Massachusetts, Nevada, Oregon and Washington, and Vermont, many more having it decriminalized. However, that doesn’t mean that the laws and regulations regarding airline travel and marijuana have changed. Since cannabis is still a controlled substance under federal law, just like cocaine or heroin, the simple answer regarding the legality of transportation of marijuana by air is no. Even if you purchased your weed legally, TSA’s screening procedures... Read More

The Week That Was: A Full Week of Sports in 600 Words

October 16th, 2018
Colorado Rockies

One of the difficulties of trying to write a weekly Colorado sports article is focusing on the biggest story of the week, and timing it within the deadline provided.  Follow that up with the challenge of informing and entertaining the reader in 600 words or less, and the problem becomes compounded.  Within the last ten days the Colorado Rockies had a playoff series, the Denver Broncos played twice, the CU Buffs traveled to USC, the Colorado Avalanche were five games into the start of the hockey season, while the Denver Nuggets were just hours from their NBA opener. And that’s just Colorado! ... Read More

Motivational Monday: Gratitude

Did you know you actually get to choose how you feel and how you respond to circumstances?  You might be thinking, “yeah I know that” …. but do your actions reflect that you know that? ... Read More

Symbi-Nope: Local Movie Reviewer Takes on Venom

October 14th, 2018
Venom

Folks, I’d like to apologize up front for this review of Venom. To put things into context, we’re going to have to make a deep dive into nerdery. I know! I can hear your eyes rolling from here. We’ll make this quick, I promise. In 1988, The Amazing Spider-Man #300 was published.* That comic book introduced Venom, an enemy of the wall-crawler. Built like a weightlifter and utterly vicious, he’s got the same powers as ya boi Spidey, along with extremely flexible morals. Totally unsurprisingly, the character was an instant hit, beloved by edgelords** before edgelords were a thing. But isn’t... Read More

While they have hosted a number of notable emerging artists, the majority are fairly well established, mid-career professionals from Colorado and the Southwest.

Woods Boss Brewing Company

Woods Boss Brewing Company is def serving up something fantastic – and I’m totally digging it! Why?! Well since you asked – let’s talk about it! The Space/Atmosphere: The space is large!

Two large roll-up doors let all that excellent warm weather in and lead to two smaller sidewalk style patios with picnic tables. The whole space, even with its large size, gives off a great “mountain cabin meets the big city” feel. The tap list... Read More

Bites with Blondie: Highlight on Havana – DAE GEE Korean BBQ

October 12th, 2018
DAE GEE Korean BBQ

It all started in 2015. My husband, a Senior Airman in the Air Force Guard, was selected to deploy to South Korea for three months with the 140th Wing. Although it was hard to say goodbye, I knew he was on an adventure of a lifetime with an entire culture to explore. In the months spent overseas, my husband constantly raved about the cuisine, the unique blend of flavors, and the aroma of his favorite little restaurant in the market. He spoke about the hidden gems surrounding base, their house made noodles soaked in broth, he fell in love with chicken bulgogi and even made a special trip to Seoul.... Read More

couple watching the sunset

Once upon a time, in a galaxy not so far away, I came across a guy on Bumble who immediately proclaimed in his bio that faith was the number quality that he was looking for in a woman. Okay. He then proceeded to say how much he loved positivity and hated photo filters: “Real is beautiful.” You got it, bud. I second the filter hate train. I mean, I’ll send you a dumbass video of me with cheeseburgers circling around my head, but a hard no on the cat ears for public visibility. In true Stephanie fashion, I led with: “Should I start sending all my Snapchat filter selfies now or later?” (don’t... Read More
