Drinking at DIA

There’s a lot you can do at the airport: shop, sleep, people watch, and of course, drink. It doesn’t matter the time of day or where you’re flying to, there’s no judgment about drinking about the airport (unless you’re drunk on your flight; don’t be that person). You can start your morning with a Bloody Mary or just go straight for the beer and there’s nothing strange about it. If your flight’s delayed and you’re looking to kill some time, the bar’s your friend. It’s a great place to pass the time, get your vacation started early, and even meet some very interesting people.   Fortunately for those who are flying in and out of Denver, the state’s love of […]

Kingman Winery is an urban Denver winery opened by Doug and Karen Kingman in 2012. They originally started in the Grand Valley area of Colorado when they purchased land, with the idea to grow their own grapes. Though their own grapes had not started growing yet, they purchased grapes from other growers and started making their wine. Eventually, they decided owning land wasn’t the way they wanted to go. Between commuting still from Denver and finding that owning land and growing grapes was too much, Doug and Karen decided to sell their land and open Kingman in Denver.   Doug had wanted a job that he could still do once he retired and opening a winery allowed him to do […]
