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. LowDown Brewery This is one of my favorite places in the area! The vibe is very chill and low-key, and the food is to die for. They have amazing appetizers (their homemade beer cheese with bread and apple to dip is my personal fav) and a great selection of sandwiches and pizza. The service is friendly,... Read More

Denver Magic Show

August 15th, 2019

Denver Magic Show —————– By Jessie Hanson   Mondays in my world need a lot of help. Case in point: I was supposed to turn in this column on Monday, but it’s now Tuesday and here we are, still pecking away at this keyboard. Let it be known that I don’t do mornings or Mondays. Thus, when I heard that the first day of the workweek would be endowing with a magical evening every week, I trotted my caffeinated bones out to Capitol Hill to see what was going on.  Parking is a bitch in Cap Hill; a magician will never tell you the secret of her tricks, but I’ll... Read More

Watch the Rolling Stones Play “Like a Rolling Stone”

August 12th, 2019

                The Stones had an excellent performance in Denver on Saturday, playing at Mile High with the same gusto they mustered in 1965 as a much younger band the last time they played in Colorado. The band also visited some local Denver favorites, including Casa Bonita (which Mick Jagger claims gave the band food poisoning), Williams & Graham, a speakeasy in LoHi, and Lo Stella Ristorante, an Italian restaurant, where Mick Jagger gave the owner a guitar pick. Watch the band play “Like a Rolling Stone” in the fan video below.      Read More

50 Years of Pride

July 1st, 2019

As June and the festivities of Pride end, it’s good to reflect on what the month of June means for LGBTQ people, and why this year’s festivals were so important. This year marked 50 years since the Stonewall riots, an event that is largely marked as the start of Pride and a stepping stone for the LGBTQ community gaining rights. The riots began at a gay bar in New York, the Stonewall Inn, in 1969, when gay people fought against police in frustration over being arrested. The events led to nationwide riots as people everywhere fought for equal rights in their communities. In Denver, there... Read More

One Year on Wheels

May 27th, 2019
Navajo Lake (Brian Head, Utah)

I am often asked if I miss having a house. My gut response is rather defensive. I have a house. It just happens to be silver, sits on wheels, and can be transported to any desired location via my car. So, the simple answer is no, I do not miss having a house. I have one. If only life were as easy as the simple answers. The more complicated (and therefore, more realistic) answer is yes, I miss having a house. And I still don’t mean the thing with four walls and windows and a door. Don’t let me fool you—I am most definitely plotting my dream homes over here (yes, plural). One is a black A-frame... Read More

3 Colorado CannaFitness Getaways

May 11th, 2019

It’s nice to get away. We all need a good recharge, away from the complexities of modern life. We’re spending more time inside than any other period in history, and we almost continuously have our eyes glued to a screen. These are just a couple reasons some doctors are starting to prescribe nature to improve overall health. Unplugging from electronics and taking time outdoors is shown to have several health benefits. If you’re reading this column, chances are you already know a bit about the benefits of cannabis for fitness, so wouldn’t it make sense to combine nature with more nature?... Read More

Denver’s 4/20 Concerts

April 13th, 2019

Once again, spring has smiled upon our beautiful city. People are gardening, birds are chirping, and the few bees we haven’t poisoned are lazily making their rounds like every day is Monday morning. It’s a special time in Denver, and with the changing of the season comes a very Colorado holiday: 4/20. Personally, it just doesn’t hold the same significance it once did. I remember going to see Ken Gorman speak at the capital and feeling like a rebel for skipping school with my friends to protest for something so near and dear to all of our hearts. That’s all well and good,... Read More
