Denver Named 10th Best City in the World for Travel

October 22nd, 2019

Lonely Planet has released its world-renowned travel list for 2020, and Denver placed in the top 10, one of only two U.S. cities to do so. Lonely Planet said about Denver, “Denver’s elevated position as one of the USA’s most charming boomtowns has reached new heights as the Mile High City enters its latest phase of growth, creative energy and damn good food. Construction cranes dot the mountain-studded horizon and empty lots turn into hip new hotels seemingly overnight, while new food halls such as Milk Market satisfy appetites with an eclectic mix of farm-to-table and international fare.... Read More

Watch the Rolling Stones Play “Like a Rolling Stone”

August 12th, 2019

                The Stones had an excellent performance in Denver on Saturday, playing at Mile High with the same gusto they mustered in 1965 as a much younger band the last time they played in Colorado. The band also visited some local Denver favorites, including Casa Bonita (which Mick Jagger claims gave the band food poisoning), Williams & Graham, a speakeasy in LoHi, and Lo Stella Ristorante, an Italian restaurant, where Mick Jagger gave the owner a guitar pick. Watch the band play “Like a Rolling Stone” in the fan video below.      Read More

50 Years of Pride

July 1st, 2019

  As June and the festivities of Pride end, it’s good to reflect on what the month of June means for LGBTQ people, and why this year’s festivals were so important. This year marked 50 years since the Stonewall riots, an event that is largely marked as the start of Pride and a stepping stone for the LGBTQ community gaining rights. The riots began at a gay bar in New York, the Stonewall Inn, in 1969, when gay people fought against police in frustration over being arrested. The events led to nationwide riots as people everywhere fought for equal rights in their communities. In Denver,... Read More

One Year on Wheels

May 27th, 2019

I am often asked if I miss having a house. My gut response is rather defensive. I have a house. It just happens to be silver, sits on wheels, and can be transported to any desired location via my car. So, the simple answer is no, I do not miss having a house. I have one. If only life were as easy as the simple answers. The more complicated (and therefore, more realistic) answer is yes, I miss having a house. And I still don’t mean the thing with four walls and windows and a door. Don’t let me fool you—I am most definitely plotting my dream homes over here (yes, plural). One is a black A-frame... Read More

3 Colorado CannaFitness Getaways

May 11th, 2019

It’s nice to get away. We all need a good recharge, away from the complexities of modern life. We’re spending more time inside than any other period in history, and we almost continuously have our eyes glued to a screen. These are just a couple reasons some doctors are starting to prescribe nature to improve overall health. Unplugging from electronics and taking time outdoors is shown to have several health benefits. If you’re reading this column, chances are you already know a bit about the benefits of cannabis for fitness, so wouldn’t it make sense to combine nature with more nature?... Read More

April 6th, 2019

This year’s sixth annual NOCO Hemp Expo hit record numbers of attendees at its sold-out event in Denver, Colorado. Last weekend I was among over 10,000 people in attendance at the conference. Just like the hemp industry is growing rapidly, NOCO has grown into the world’s largest gathering of hemp industry professionals in the world—in only six years! The event has highlighted the many uses of hemp, from CBD products, to hemp building materials, to the agendas printed on hemp paper. The event provided education and workshops across the board.
