The Indo Expo is returning to Denver next weekend, where the cannabis industry’s premier trade show first started almost six years ago. Since then, they’ve expanded their show presentation to include San Francisco, California and Portland, Oregon; but Denver, Colorado is where it all began. This year, there will be 350+ exhibitors, showcasing hundreds of companies, brands, and product lines representing all areas of the cannabis industry.

In the Pursuit of Home

December 20th, 2018

Four hours ago, I blew a fuse on my inverter. Four hours and twenty minutes ago, I didn’t even know what an inverter was or that half the plugs in my Airstream were powered by an inverter, which is monumentally different (and altogether far less powerful) than those plugs that are grounded. Learning. Don’t plug a space heater into an inverter circuit. If you’re worried about my lack of electric plugs at this point in the story, don’t be. My grounded plugs are still working and my Airstream itself has power (praise God because it’s a whopping seven degrees outside). The major concern here... Read More

Body made up hemp

Did you know, every ten years your body has generated brand new bones? According to the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, “After the body’s skeleton forms and grows to its adult size, it completely regenerates itself about every 10 years, through a process called remodeling.” Ok, so that makes sense, but how can your body be made of hemp? The answer is proteins. I’ve mentioned in previous articles about the several nutritional benefits of hemp foods, and how I personally choose hemp protein as my go to protein supplement. Since proteins are what the human body is built from,... Read More

When you find yourself in Steamboat Springs for a weekend mountain staycation with friends; you naturally scout out the area’s breweries. Maybe that’s just me – but it’s most definitely how this past weekend played out! After waiting out the inclement weather and making the journey I found myself craving a cold brew. So scattered throughout visits to Old Town Hot Springs, hilarious games of Cards Against Humanity, and the occasional bear sighting – we made our way to a few of the local watering holes.   Mountain Tap Brewery (www.mountaintapbrewery.com): The first stop we made... Read More

Colorado is known for more than just skiing, craft breweries and sports teams. After gold was first discovered in 1859, Colorado became home to the Gold Rush, bringing thousands of people west hoping to strike it rich. Mining proved to be profitable, as over 8 million ounces of gold was found throughout the state, which allowed Colorado to establish its statehood and gain a colorful reputation for success. Although the gold rush ended in the early 1860’s, each September the Colorado mountains showcase their most famous gold assets – Aspen leaves. While the arrival of fall colors came early... Read More

8 Patios to Dine Outside with a View

September 28th, 2018
Indulge_Denver

If there are two things I know about eating in Denver, it’s that most people are down to try something new and ideally on a patio, especially with over 300 days of sunshine. Although the leaves are changing, temperatures are dropping, and Fall is (technically) here, the ever present 80-degree heat in Denver is no joke. These eight outdoor spaces are not only my favorite spots to grab a bite and sip a cocktail but to enjoy views for days. Lucy Directly above Comedy Works at the Landmark, Lucy not only boasts a killer menu but provides outstanding views of the Denver Tech Center! With a bright... Read More

The Alley_Littleton

Growing up in the surrounding suburbs and graduating from Columbine High School, it wasn’t until I was an adult that I learned to appreciate the charm of downtown Littleton.  The one-way streets lined with shops and white strung lights, bring picturesque memories to most locals, myself included. This quaint little town has captivated new businesses to move into the neighborhood, becoming quite the hot spot for foodies. Start your morning off with a fresh roasted cup of coffee (or bottomless Bellini’s) and sample the signature dishes offered at Main Street’s newest addition, Grande Station.... Read More
