Gather: An Intimate Supper

Just think of it: a summer’s night, dining al fresco, a four-course meal from some of Denver’s finest restaurants, the element of surprise for what will be served, beer and wine and gardens. It all adds up to the essence of glorious summer evenings in Denver! You can be part of it, but space is limited.…

Vive La France, in Denver!

Bastille Day is today, so let’s explore the many ways you can celebrate France right here in Denver! In fact, Denver’s French connection goes way back, in many surprising ways… Eastern Colorado was once controlled by France, and was part of the 1803 Louisiana Purchase pursued by President Thomas Jefferson. The Platte River was named by early…

Avanti

The Adventures of Avanti Food & Beverage

A new eatery concept puts an end to those annoying conversations that go like this: “Where do you want to go for lunch/dinner/drinks?” “I dunno.

In fact, when you walk into the theater, you are walking ON STAGE to get to your seat. Does that give you a sense of how…

Mia Wine for Me and You

What drink do most of us think of when we’re having Mexican food? A margarita or beer, right? It’s practically automatic. But did you know that in Spain, you wouldn’t have those beverages with a meal? Instead, you’d have wine with food, like the French do. I learned this interesting fact from Gloria Collell, Mia Winemaker.…

Hideaway Kitchen

Seek Out Hideaway Kitchen + Bar

When we have a great restaurant in our own neck of the woods, it’s great, isn’t it? But sometimes you discover a really good restaurant but it’s far enough away that you have to make a real effort to go there. That’s the case for most of us living outside of Genesee. I had the opportunity to…
