REI Denver: More Than Just A Fabulous Place For All Things Outdoors

July 17th, 2017

REI Denver is certainly a hot spot for both natives, transplants, locals and tourists alike. It offers some of the very best sporting and outdoor equipment available, which is great in a place like Colorado where all things outdoors are desirable. From camping to rafting, rock climbing to mountain (or city) biking, and more, REI pretty much has it all. What’s more though, it’s also a great place to come just to hang out, as the building itself is a huge part of Denver history, includes beautiful architecture, is right next to the historic Platte River and Cherry Creak trail, and of course... Read More

Independence Day And Colorado: How We Got In On The 4th Of July Celebration

July 3rd, 2017

The fourth of July is always a fun day all across America each year. Full of fireworks, family, friends, music and of course delicious food, it’s a time to really celebrate being alive, as well as to be grateful for the many freedoms that come with being an American. That said, while America declared itself it’s own political nation on July 4, 1776 via the official adoption of the the Declaration of Independence, it wasn’t until much later that Colorado was able to get in on the celebratory action. What was going on in Colorado when the Declaration of Independence was being accepted as law?... Read More

The Airedale Building: A Place Of Fun, Food and Fetishes

Ophelia's at the Airedale Building

You’ve probably driven or walked past it numerous times, admired the building, heard people raving about the delicious food and great shows they’ve seen there and maybe have even frequented the unique underground bar yourself — I’m talking about that mysterious, glamours and somewhat nostalgic looking building on 20th St, right in between Larimer St and Lawrence St, that houses Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox. That said, the building itself (known widely as the “Airedale Building”), has always been a quite popular place to visit when it comes to Denver’s hot spots, even before the opening... Read More

There are a lot of great things about living in Denver, but one of my favorite parts is all the public parks. From City Park (great for an evening jog), to Confluence park (ideal for a good book and view of the city), Civic Center park (where all the best food trucks are) and more, Denver’s park scene is on point. That said, my absolute favorite park in Denver is Cheesman park! Located near Capital Hill between 13th Ave and 8th Ave, Race St and Humboldt St, this park offers 80.7 acres of space to play in, is open from 5:30am-11pm daily and is one of the most scenic places in town! From picnickers,... Read More

Old Fashioned: The Drink, The Bar, The Time at Charlie Brown’s Bar

May 22nd, 2017
Charlie Brown's Bar Denver

There are hundreds of places to grab a drink and relax after a long work week around Denver, but none are quite as unique or charming as Charlie Brown’s Bar. Located at 980 Grant Street, this bar was built in 1928 and is attached to one of the most famous and historic hotels in Denver — the Colburn. Most importantly though, it is a place you can go to not only relax (and get a really good steak), but also feel the history of Denver come alive around you! All you have to do is walk in the doors and grab a seat in one of the plush leather and mahogany arm chairs, order an old fashioned and take... Read More

Denver is a hugely diverse city that has a ton to offer. From a great music scene, to delicious food, amazing outdoor activities and awesome nightlife, Denver really has something for everyone. Because of this, it’s no wonder Denver has always been able to hold its own in the world of beautiful and popular places to visit. Recently however, it has turned from a fun place to visit, to one of the most popular places to settle down in America! Sure, some of this probably has to do with the legalization of marijuana, but more and more often you hear it’s simply because of the culture. A culture... Read More
