Be On Key

July 14th, 2018
Be on Key

If you’re into jam bands or are even vaguely familiar with that scene in Denver, you’ve probably heard of Jay Bianchi. If that doesn’t ring a bell, you’ve most likely been to Sancho’s Broken Arrow, or Owsleys. Maybe you remember Quixote’s(RIP). If none of this sounds familiar, you may have just gotten here, which is fine, and now you know about some cool spots to check out. Bianchi is a die-hard deadhead and his establishments tend to reflect the sentiment. They’re all incredibly welcoming places to relax, grab a drink, and enjoy good music. His latest project, Be On Key Psychedelic... Read More

How To Shrub Like a Denver Mixologist

July 6th, 2018
Shrub Cocktails

Shrub cocktails are all the rage in hipster cocktail bars and underground secret door speakeasies all around Denver.  A shrub is a concentrated syrup that combines fruit, sugar, and vinegar and results in a sweet, acidic mixer that can be enjoyed on its own or used in a variety of mixed drinks. Herbs and spices are also used to created interesting flavor combinations that tantalize the tongue.  Why not impress guests at your next dinner party with a homemade shrub that’s as easy and thrilling to prepare as it is to drink! I will never forget the complex flavors that I untangled with my tongue... Read More

The Denver Milk Market in the Dairy Block

June 27th, 2018
The Denver Milk Market

It’s my first look at Milk Market, a huge food hall with seating for 350 or more.  I can hear the alluring buzz even before the modernized liquor-friendly school yard comes into view. It’s a weeknight around 7pm and the place has a good buzz.  I am alone, without a friend, and it’s a bit like a school yard without a friend…but I quickly become enamored with the attractive and stimulating sights and tastes. What is the Denver Milk Market? The Denver Milk Market is a food hall by Denver Chef Frank Bonnano featuring 16 restaurants and bars.  It is part of the Dairy Block…a micro-district... Read More

Warped Tour

Warped Tour

Let’s pretend I have a waybackintheday machine that we can step into and travel back to 1995.  Why would we go there you ask? Are we going to bet heavy on the 49ers winning the Super Bowl? Are we planning to unveil the Unabomber’s identity the day before his manifesto comes out? We could try to get on the jury for the OJ Simpson trial. Should we tell Bill Clinton to leave Monica Lewinsky alone? All good options my friends, but too risky. Why risk catastrophically altering the future when we could go to the first ever Warped Tour?  Gwen Stephanie is going to sing Saw Red with Sublime’s Bradley... Read More

Faces of Denver: Betsy Lay

June 16th, 2018

One team in the Denver craft beer scene is hoping to prove the possibilities of what a small business can do to give back. Betsy Lay and the rest of the group at Lady Justice Brewing focus on bringing women to the forefront of the beer scene. Lady Justice Brewing was started in 2014 by co-founders Betsy Lay, Kate Power and Jen Cuesta. Originally, they began as a Kickstarter to start the all female brew team, which donates their proceeds to community organizations supporting women. “There are more female brewers on the scene now and I think momentum is there. There’s still sexism and harassment... Read More

UMS: Underground Music Showcase

June 16th, 2018
UMS

I know we all breathed a collective sigh of relief when the Underground Music Showcase announced business will continue as usual this year. The 18th annual festival floods the streets of South Broadway July 27th-29th. This musical monstrosity is always one for the record books, and this year will be no different. The UMS started in 2001 as a way to give Denver underground bands some well deserved attention. The beginning was humble; four bands, five-dollar tickets, and a packed Bluebird Theater. From there it rapidly grew each year eventually becoming a three-day festival with hundreds of bands... Read More

This weekend, the cannabis community is wrapping up Hemp History Week. What started as a movement to raise awareness and support for industrial hemp has quickly turned into the largest national grassroots effort to restore strong support for industrial hemp farming in the United States.
