Set the Soiree

There’s always an excuse for a dinner party, especially this time of the year. Family gatherings. Friendsgiving. Holiday parties. It's all about friends and family coming together to eat, drink and connect. Connection happens to be the perfect word to describe the purpose of a soiree, and it’s also a concept that’s meaningful to local event planner Dagny Morrow who…

December 2016 Around Town

Third grade students at Boulder Country Day School are stepping forward as champions of positive school climate by running a school-wide election with respect and enthusiasm. The candidates are two guinea pigs. Before you dismiss this exercise as silly, think of how much students can learn. From creating posters, t-shirts, promotional videos, voter registration booths, polling centers, and all kinds…

MERCURY 
FASHIONED

Here's a little holiday recipe to test out on your new bar cart from expert Nate Camelio of Garnish Bartending, a mobile boutique bartending business.

Boulder’s Best Brews

What’s the flavor? This unfiltered ale carries with it a spiced flavor that is uniquely Belgian. Couple this with the Curaçao orange peel used in brewing and you have a well-rounded, refreshing white.

Mediterranean to Mountain Luxury

Styles change. Color and texture trends come and go. It’s not surprising an 11,562 square-foot home built and decorated in 2001 would need some updates 14 years later. Okay, maybe a lot of updates. But the complete transformation recently completed by Ellis Construction—a high-end remodeling company serving Boulder county since 2001—goes above and beyond. It brought the Niwot home from…

To & From

The holidays and giving are synonymous. Yes - gifts are an obvious part of that equation but it’s not the only way we give this season.

Indoor Plant

As we sit here creeping into the dead of winter, there's definitely something missing in life. The trees lay bare, grasses have retreated and most plants are in a deep slumber until spring. That's why it's important to bring the outdoors in. Even those with a lack of a green thumb can take care of these easy indoor plants, and…

For The Love Of Ghosts

This time of year, I’m restless. A trip to the mountains—only 45 minutes to the sleepy mining town of Silver Plume—bridges the gap between crisp fall weather and the impending cooler air at the base of the Rockies. I’m not a bartender. Six months ago, I would have scoffed at the idea of spending so much time at a bar.…

15 Minute Workout

The holidays are a time for celebration, eating, drinking and being merry with your colleagues, friends and family! Celebration doesn’t have to mean insatiable eating, or even worse, deprivation. It’s time to bring the focus back to the purpose.

Harissa Coconut Stew

"Just like the work out this month, the recipe and food options presented are to keep with the same theme. These are to give you great options, save you time, and keep you on track without having to break the bank, or take you off your game plan." -Sky Van Horn

Revel for a Cause

This holiday season consider purchasing presents that give back. We’ve curated the best presents around town, many of them being fair trade, that go one step further….

Cherishing Childhood

Tucked inside a little navy house, on historic Louisville’s Main Street, sits Pitter Patter, a small boutique devoted to treasuring childhood moments. “Pitter Patter is bringing families a place where children are cherished and life's most precious moments are celebrated. We are delighted daily to share in our customer's excitement over a new birth, a visit from the Tooth Fairy…

That’s a Wrap

We believe in quiet design in all things, including our gift wrapping. With this in mind we select simple, yet elegant, wrapping material. This includes a medium-weight dark green paper with a subtle stripe, classic black ribbon, an Alpine Modern sticker. Sharp scissors and double sided tape are necessary to achieve the clean look.

The Art of the Bar

Tis the season to "eat, drink and be merry." And what goes hand-in-hand with that old saying is entertaining. From December first to January first most people are expecting family members and friends to come visit in hordes. Turning what's normally your home into a Holiday bed and breakfast. As we frantically sat on Pinterest in panic mode trying to…

Giving Back

Finally the end of 2016 has wrapped up and we’re moving forward into another year. I always look forward to this season. It seems like days that have been moving so fast for months finally slow down as busy work schedules have subsided to family gatherings and holiday festivity. We come together to celebrate the year that has been, and…
