Let the Games Begin

August 25th, 2019

Everyone should spend a little time working in either the food industry, retail, or customer service. More than any other profession, you’ll witness some of the best and worst aspects of human behavior. When your job is to serve food or handle phone calls, you’ll see moments of towering generosity, unimaginable pettiness, and everything in between. I’ve been there. I spent over ten years trapped in a cubicle, armed with nothing more than a phone, a disinterested managerial team, and a substandard personal computer. My job was to be an abuse sponge, soaking up invective from people who really... Read More

Hellgrammites at Larimer Lounge

August 24th, 2019

Larimer Lounge is the place to be next Thursday night. They’re kicking the weekend off a day early with a show worth canceling your previous plans for. Anniversary dinner on your calendar? Bring your better half to the show. Aunt Karen’s birthday? There’s always next year. Job interview in the morning? Reschedule, they like it when you play hard to get. Whatever the case, I’ll see you there at 8. Headlining are Denver’s own Hellgrammites.

Five Broncos That Need to Stay Healthy

August 23rd, 2019

After watching last Monday’s preseason game between the Denver Broncos and the San Francisco 49ers, three things became quite apparent: our starting defense looks pretty good, our starting offense needs a little work, and the team lacks some serious depth. Preseason football is basically meaningless, as most coaches only play their starting units for a handful of series, fearful of injuries that could derail the regular season. Which got me to thinking as the 49ers steamrolled through Denver’s backups in the second half. Who can the Broncos least afford to get injured this season? Joe Flacco... Read More

Five Facts About Low Testosterone

August 22nd, 2019

I’m going to talk about a subject may be uncomfortable for some… low testosterone. Testosterone is a sex hormone that belongs to a class of male hormones called androgens.  The National Institutes of Health regards testosterone as the most important male hormone, but women also produce testosterone at lower levels. For men, testosterone is produced mainly in the testes, with a small amount made in the adrenal glands. Women, on the other hand, produce testosterone in the ovaries and adrenal glands. Low testosterone affects both men and women, although each is affected differently. For men,... Read More

Watch the “Great Mattress Migration of 2019”

August 20th, 2019

Mattresses that were set up for a movie night in Colorado were suddenly taken away by a strong wind shortly before a storm. Video footage shows that some of the mattresses were blown into a nearby outdoor pool. Robert Manes, who shot the video, told the Denver Post, “Although we felt really bad for the event people, we thought it was absolutely hilarious.” The scene lasted for more than 30 minutes and approximately 100 mattresses flew away during the migration.  Read More

3 Great Places to Eat in Capitol Hill Denver

August 20th, 2019

Ah, Denver. The city is so fun and diverse with many different neighborhoods, each with their own spunk. Capitol Hill is a well-known neighborhood for its charm, tree-lined streets, and gritty history. Not only that, but they have a great selection of restaurants and bars at affordable prices! 1.
