There’s something so rejuvenating about the month of May. The trees are awakening, flowers are budding to say hello to the sun, summer travel plans are closer than ever and it's finally wedding season. I’m starting to think May is my favorite time of year.

Real Wedding: Laine & Jay Schreib

Laine and Jay Schreib found love, fittingly, because of their first love—the arts. The couple met in the theater, and while they had worked together for a while and had grown close, something clicked while working on a ballet in China.

Colorful Cuba

Steer clear of hotel restaurants and opt for paladares—in-home restaurants—for the most authentic, innovative tastes of Cuba (like cumin-laced ropa vieja and taro fritters). A few to try in Havana: Atelier, La Guarida and El Cocinero.

Ropa Vieja Cubana

Put brisket in a large pot of cold water add half onion, half green pepper, one bay leaf, three cloves garlic smashed and one tsp salt. Cover and cook for about four hours over medium flame until brisket is tender and falling apart. When finished cooking, release steam carefully, remove meat and allow to cool.

San Francisco 101

Arriving from the airport at Haight-Ashbury on a summer night to chime the bell of my college pals’ apartment may be one of the hippest moments in my life. The next five days were a blur of seafood, wine on the beach, microclimates, brunch and sightseeing. San Francisco is cool-casual, reminiscent to Boulder, but on chic steroids and situated on…

Smokin’ BBQ

Barbecue can be synonymous with outdoor, carefree parties in the heat of an Indian summer. It can be comfort food, gooey and warm straight from the oven (or smoker). It can be spicy, loaded with sauces handcrafted by a master chef. At The Ghost BBQ & Spirits, it's all of these. This nook of flavor needs no opening act, though…
