ARISE: A Transformative Colorado Festival of Yoga and Music

August 9th, 2019

Community and healing: those are the words that come to mind when partaking in your first yoga-music festival. For anybody that’s been to ARISE before, they’ll likely know what I’m talking about. Nestled between the rolling green foothills of Loveland, Colorado is Sunrise Ranch—an ideal location for an event such as this. Whether you come predominately for the yoga or the music alone, you’ll get a wide variety in both realms. From folk, funk, and electronic to vinyasa flow and AcroYoga, there’s a plethora of activities to choose from over the course of three days. What’s unique... Read More

5 Tips to Save Money Going to a Music Festival

June 27th, 2019

It’s summer, which means it’s festival season!!! As in, music festivals! I personally love festival season and went to Electric Forest last year and Bonnaroo this year. Festivals can get pricey, but I was amazed by how much I could save with small money-saving hacks. Yes, you can go to a festival too and not be freaking out about money too! (Trust me, I know. Currently on a barista salary…haha) Look no further for tips to make festival season fun and affordable.   Bring Your Own Food.   This seems like a fairly simple and obvious idea, but planning out what food you bring is... Read More

Winter Warms Up At Mile High Beer Fest

March 12th, 2019

The Mile-High City is home to a wide variety of festivals, ranging from The Westword Music Showcase to the International Lidar Mapping Forum (ILMF for those in the aerial survey world) and everything in between. So naturally, there are a ton of beer-centric festivals that make their way to or call our wonderful city home. This past weekend, even the single-digit temperatures couldn’t stop the band from playing or the beer from flowing at Mile High Beer Fest. So, camera in hand and winter coat donned, I made my way to Number 38 in RiNo to check out just what Mile-High Beer Fest was all about! So... Read More

Backstage: Denver Improv Festival

October 23rd, 2018
Denver Improv Festival

‘Tis the season! For ghosts and ghouls and turkey dinners and a depressing-exhilarating amount of gifts to be given and received. It’s inflatable witches and kandy korn and all sorts of treats and festivities for all of us, no matter how secular or religious we may be. Spoiler alert: I’m not actually a huge fan of Halloween, which makes me feel like a tiny minority amongst my Millennial generation. Dressing up in an elaborate costume and hanging out in a room full of drunk people? That’s what I do on weeknights, all year round. What I’m most excited about for this season is what happens... Read More

Velorama

Velorama

Velorama is returning to Blake Street August 17th-19th. This will be the festival’s second time here, and it’s picking up momentum. This is a mix of music, art, craft beers, delicious food, and of course bikes, to create a smorgasbord of good times. Velorama began with the idea to expand the Colorado Classic, a bike race, into a bigger event. Music and food were the logical next step. Now we have a three-day festival with tons of awesome events. In addition to the music, there are eleven different breweries participating, and of course, a food truck for every appetite. On Sunday, the last leg... Read More

Colorado Burlesque Festival

Colorado Burlesque Festival

If you’re a member of the human species, then you like looking at naked ladies. Even those of us who consider a peep to be a sin would still generally admit that it’s a damn fun sin. The art motif in my apartment consists of naked ladies. (Mostly, naked ladies on bicycles…it’s a niche genre.) People used to go to great lengths to acquire an eyeful now and then, but then the internet happened and now we can see amateurs and professionals being naked for free all the time. You get what you pay for, though, and so I suggest unplugging your laptop for a few hours and getting yourself something... Read More

Arise

May 26th, 2018

Once again summer has come. The season of tan lines, patios, dog parks and feature hikes. The bicycle shops are stocked up on spandex and everyone and their mother is training for a 5k (I believe in you and you’re killing it). A-Basin has once more closed for the season, so the parking lot volleyball games will be moved to Cheesman Park until two weeks before Halloween when everyone becomes preoccupied with costume ideas. I have a kind of Groundhog Day test for summer, it’s not official until you hear someone say “You call this hot? I’m from Texas!”. Not to worry though, when ski season... Read More

Five Points Jazz Festival

May 12th, 2018

Annual festivals remind me of holidays without the cooking hassle. I get that magical childlike excitement not so different from long ago Christmas mornings. I remember the good times from prior festivals and all the food truck delicacies I consumed. I think of sunshine and the subsequent sun burns. I think of the friends I made in beer lines. I think of great music, dancing bodies, and smiles on every face. All of these wonderful things and more can be found at the upcoming Five Points Jazz Festival on May 19th. Since 2003 we’ve enjoyed this fantastic all ages celebration of jazz music and the... Read More
