2013 Reviews in Review

You see them everywhere – those year-end wrap ups. Top news events, top celebrity baby bump sitings, top ridiculous quotes from politicians – you name it, somebody’s going to compile it to help wrap up the year with a tidy, numbered bow. Love ’em or hate ’em, we’re joining the bandwagon again this year. With…

Getaway: Winter in the City By T. Ravlin Lyte

The holidays are almost over and there’s always that slight let down. We decided to avoid that post-holiday slump by planning something fun in the heart of downtown Denver. Our Winter in the City Getaway revolved around the Mile High Holidays Hotel Deals through Visit Denver’s program. The deals to get rooms for the mile high…

Santa Fe Revisited

Recently, I had the opportunity to return to Santa Fe for a speedy weekend, a place this Denver native truly loves and identifies with. Why? I’m not sure. It is Colorado’s southern neighbor and, like neighbors, we have some things in common but there are a lot of things about us that are very different.…

Chicago on a Shoestring

Denverites, you have more in common with Chicago than you might think. Chicago is brash, bossy, always two steps ahead of Denver. The Windy City’s wealth and power molded the Mile High City’s destiny from the beginning. Venerated Denver Mayor Speer, inspired by the City Beautiful movement showcased at the 1893 Chicago World’s Fair, envisioned his shabby Colorado capitol as a Paris on the Platte. Thanks to his vision sparked by Chicago, today’s Denver enjoys a network of…

Dear Colorado Symphony Orchestra (and Denver)

Dear Mr. Litton, Congratulations on becoming the new Artistic Director of the Colorado Symphony Orchestra. The 2013 season is off to a great start! Denver’s a casual place, so may I call you Andrew? Thanks.   As lovers of the CSO since back when it was the Denver Symphony Orchestra, we’ve seen the progress and sometimes…

Get Your Curiosity On: Mythbusters Comes to Denver

I know, I know, I’m a weirdo. I’ve never seen Mythbusters. That’s because I’m super weird and don’t have cable because I’m out and about too much and don’t want to be tempted by even more TV. So when I got a sneak peek at “Mythbusters: The Explosive Exhibition” running October 11, 2013-January 4, 2014 at…
