Civic Center EATS returns this week – and I can’t wait to enjoy lunch outside in downtown Denver’s Civic Center Park again!

Pepe Osaka’s Fish Taco Tequila Bar and Grill in WP

We went to Pepe Osaka’s Fish Taco in Winter Park expecting a quick street taco joint but were pleasantly surprised by what we found instead: a dark but vibrant sit-down restaurant with a menu full of Mexican-Asian delights. Ahi poke ceviche tacos, yes please! Pepe Osaka’s Margarita Azul Margaritas with Infused Tequila Complimentary homemade tortilla chips …

Donuts & Choo-choos Downtown

One of ZB’s favorite words right now is “choo-choo.” We play “choo-choo” more than anything else with her Brio set just like the one I played with when I was a kid. She is always on the look out for “choo-choos” and lets us know when she spies or hears one. RTD Light Rail: Denver’s …

Trout Steak Revival at the Gothic Theatre

The college kid who maneuvered into a seat next to us was a fanatic for Trout Steak Revival. He was so pumped about the show, speaking at us a million miles a minute about how great the band was. His enthusiasm was sorta endearing. Trout Steak Revival @ the Gothic Theatre Well…when Trout Steak Revival began playing, …

The Butterfly Pavilion: Colorado’s Insect Zoo

Years ago, Josh and I went on a date to the Butterfly Pavilion. We took what seemed like a million photographs, but that was before digital cameras.

Glenwood Hot Springs Pool Feels Like Heaven

Something about hot water melts my stress away and puts my mind at ease. When I first found hot springs on a summer trip to Strawberry Park Hot Springs at about eight years old, I discovered my own personal heaven. Despite my love for natural hot springs, it took me nearly thirty years to visit …

Hatha at Mountain Moon Yoga in Winter Park

Whenever I am in the Fraser River Valley, I hit up Holly’s class – Hatha at Mountain Moon Yoga in Winter Park. She guides you through a slow, mindful flow and places a much-appreciated emphasis on breathing…inhaling and exhaling several times in most poses. It perfectly helps me arrive fully and completely in my yoga …

Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival Cures Cabin Fever

Just when you start getting a little tired of winter’s short days and long nights, it’s time for the Steamboat Springs Winter Carnival! The timing is no accident.

Brunch it up at duo Restaurant in LoHi

I understand the Denver brunch craze. And I certainly contribute to it. I am not ashamed. Brunch is definitely thebest type of meal for my soul – with plenty of hygge. (That’s Danish for a feeling of coziness, a mood of comfort and community.) Although known for its dinner menu, brunch at duo Restaurant did …
