During our monthly planning meeting (dubbed ‘Deadlines & Donuts’) we collectively had a million ideas for the theme, Arts & Culture. As much as we would love to feature so many of the talented artists, all using different mediums, we narrowed it down to a few makers for this month. They are creative forces that are unstoppable, and they invited…

February 2017 Around Town

Presenting Pangea's new Canadian Pine and White Sage Candle for your home! Most candles are made of cheap, unsustainable GMO oils that are either destroying the environment or…destroying the environment; and most candles are scented with synthetic fragrances or “natural fragrances” which are just synthetic fragrances who changed their name in college. If you know Pangea, you know that we…

Artist Profile | Wyeth Shawn Lawton Talmon

When it comes to art, you're never too old—or too young—to start. We sat down with a young creative mind to hear about his artistic process. Meet Wyeth Shawn Lawton Talmon. (He happens to be named after Andrew Wyeth, one of his mother's favorite artists.)


Owners of Shine Restaurant and Gathering Place, Shine Brewing Co., and Shine Potions, and authors of the bestselling cookbook Eat Drink Shine, the “Blissful Sisters” of Shine, Jennifer, Jessica, and Jill Emich, are always up for delicious local dishes with a side of an enticing conversation.

Say Hello To

Amelia Davis first started exploring with clay during her freshman year of high school while she was away at boarding school—with the studio becoming a quiet haven from everyday stressors. “I was captivated by making functional pieces and the difficulty of getting each piece to a place where I was happy with it (including the first month of failing miserably…

Street Art

Nowadays, it’s common to see murals dotting buildings, storefronts and underpasses throughout city centers and small towns. “The sentiment that murals are vandalism or not real art is becoming all but non-existent. The legitimacy of the work speaks for itself,” explains Leah Brenner, the Boulder-based founder of And Art Space, an organization connecting local artists with Denver and Boulder-area companies…

All American

River & Woods restaurant, the relatively new occupant of the iconic John’s cottage on East Pearl, should come with a warning: you will not want to leave. Not that this is a bad thing, but this is a neighborhood eatery that does just about everything right – the food, the drinks, the service, and the cozy atmosphere that John’s Restaurant…

Mountain Meets Modern

Think about the little haven structures of your childhood, the hideaways that you imagined up, constructed, and took delightful refuge in. Maybe it was a perpetually cozy igloo, a sand castle where the waves never breached the walls, or perhaps a super-secret fort (made out of only the finest, softest of throw pillows and blankets, of course). Boulder-based Rodwin Architecture…

Front Range Roots

Colorado has become a calling for great music; one can attend a concert while being immersed in the breathtaking scenery. As inspirational a night of music can be to attendees, consider the effect on the artists in residence. The community encourages new music, in turn, a genre of progressive bluegrass is embraced. Yonder Mountain String Band has risen alongside this…

Post Workout Recipes

Just like the workout this month, the recipes 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. Is mental well-being equally important as is nutrition and fitness? Yes, and in…

at your service

Frasca is hands-down one of the best restaurants in Colorado, 
but when people sing its praises, the food isn’t usually the first thing they mention. It’s the hospitality. (Although the food isn’t so shabby itself…) Clearly, we’re starving for an eatery that makes us feel welcome and cared for, and when Frasca opened its doors in 2004, it set the…

to write

In honor of interviewing a calligrapher, I decided to whip out a pen and draft Hannah Howard’s story by hand. Of course, it’s (much) faster to draft on a laptop, but after talking with Howard about her lifelong passion for handwriting and fonts, it sparked an interest to appreciate an overlooked art form: written language.

Call of the Wild

My ideas about dog sledding came from Jack London’s famous novels Call of the Wild and White Fang; Disney also threw in a bone with their not-so-famous 2006 movie Eight Below. All in all, it seemed like an amazing experience. So when we had the assignment to do a dog sledding feature, I was all in.
