Top 5 Reasons Why Denverites Should Ski

July 21st, 2021

If you live in Denver, you should go skiing at least once a year—full stop. There, I’ve said it. It might be controversial, but we believe that if you live in Colorado and don’t make it to the mountains at least once every winter, you’re blowing it. Sure, there are plenty of fun activities for Denverites to do all year round that aren’t skiing, but a trip to the slopes is an important part of the experience of being a resident of The Mile High City, and it can be a fun and affordable pastime if you do it right. Here are the top 5 reasons why Denverites should hit the slopes every winter: You... Read More

Faces of Denver–Dave Ashton

July 20th, 2021
Dave Ashton

KGNU radio station has been on the air in Colorado since the early 1970’s. Dave Ashton has graced those airwaves for the past 12 years. Originally from Indiana, Ashton got into music as a child. He saved up to buy his first record of Grandmaster Flash at eight years old. His parents, being a librarian and a school teacher, both encouraged his interest in hip hop and lyrical rap because of the fascination for word play. Ashton moved to Colorado in grade school, attended college in St. Paul, MN., then worked at Think Skateboards in San Francisco and a hot dog stand in Chicago. After all the traveling... Read More

Everything’s Fine

July 19th, 2021

I adore crime movies, though some flavors more than others. About half of Quentin Tarantino’s filmography focuses on crime, and Pulp Fiction alone birthed legions of imitators. For years, there were scores of films involving loquacious scumbags holding forth on pop culture and committing unexpected (but completely expected) acts of violence. Some of these movies were even good. Tarantino’s crime movies are like a cheeseburger ordered at the trendiest restaurant you can imagine, cooked by the biggest celebrity chef out there. You’ll enjoy that burger, I promise you, but while you’re eating... Read More

The Whacky Weekly that Was

July 19th, 2021

Tourists lined the streets of LoDo, legends returned to the X Games, and the coronavirus continued to steal the headlines.  A look at the whacky week that was in the world of sports. Coors Field hosted the All-Star Game festivities this past weekend, including Monday’s Homerun Derby, a fan favorite. The balls were flying out in record numbers as the Angels’ Shohei Ohtani, Colorado’s Trevor Story, and eventual derby winner Pete Alonso put on a show. Story performed well in the homerun contest but continues to struggle during his regular-season hitting a mere .246 with just 11 homeruns. The... Read More

July 16th, 2021

The Daily Meal has released the 2019 list of the 101 best pizzas in America. With 30 states making the list, Colorado had only one contender, and Pizzeria Locale was it. Hitting the 60th spot overall, the joint was praised for  “12 “Classics,” (eight red, four white), but you’re probably going to want to build your own from a selection of more than 25 toppings including eggplant, Calabrian chiles, corn, smoked mozzarella, pork meatballs and prosciutto.” Best pizzas are chosen based on “a nuanced sauce, neither too sweet nor too salty (assuming that the pie has sauce);... Read More

Street Artist Abram Aleo

July 14th, 2021

I feel like it goes without saying that Denver has one of the most rapidly expanding art scenes in the country. We live in an artistic oasis, smack dab in between Chicago and Santa Fe, with entire districts dedicated to galleries. I recently had the pleasure of talking to one of Denver’s many prolific artists, Abram Aleo, about his work and some of the trends blossoming out of alleyways and gallery windows all over the city. Aleo is a self-taught visual artist, with a broad skill set and seemingly infinite creativity. He specializes in acrylic paintings and large-scale murals. These two disciplines... Read More
