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 […]

Posted by | · · · · · · · | Date Ideas in Denver · Denver · Denver food and wine · Denver's top restaurants · eat local · Food and Wine · Things to do in Denver | No Comments on Happy Hour Is My Favorite Hour

I’m sure we can all agree there are few things better than a great happy hour. Leaving happy hour feeling full, maybe a bit tipsy, and not broke? Sign me up. Sometimes you just need to hit one on a Monday because it’s been a Monday or to celebrate the end of the week on a Friday. There are so many great Denver restaurants and bars with fantastic happy hours (there are even restaurants from our other lists that could be on this one – Central Bistro & Bar, Linger, and Postino to name a few), but these are a simply a few restaurants where the happy hour needs to be taken advantage of.   Lola | Coastal Mexican – […]

Brunch Is Always A Good Idea

Posted by | · · · · · · · | Denver's top restaurants · drink local · eat local · Things to do in Denver | No Comments on Brunch Is Always A Good Idea

I love a good brunch. I love that I don’t have to get up early to still enjoy breakfast, I can have either sweet or savory, and that my day is beginning with a mimosa. You know it’s going to be a good day when it’s a brunch day. Fortunately, Denver has so many great brunch spots to choose from. Enjoy a Denver day with a little food and a little day drinking.   Snooze Snooze is a great brunch spot. Open daily and with multiple locations throughout the city, including a one at Union Station, there’s something on the menu for everyone. You can’t go wrong with any of their benedict selections or their pancakes. How can you resist […]

In a city with a thriving microbrew scene, there is a new trend that is quickly on the rise – Urban Wineries. As the name implies, these establishments make their own wines in and around Denver.

One of the newest to the scene is Littleton’s Carboy Winery. From the unique design to cozy feel, this winery offers an experience to remember.   The winery located off Santa Fe Boulevard is nestled between Downtown Littleton and Aspen Grove and truly is one of suburbia’s hidden gems.

Buying Better Boxed Wine

Posted by | · · · · · · · · · · · · · | autumn · box wine · Colorado · Sin categoría | No Comments on Buying Better Boxed Wine

By: Allie Kohler     I’m looking at you, Franzia fiends.   Maybe you’re a part of the tailgate junky, house party having, backyard barbecue devotees whose get-drunk-quick fix is holding a large plastic bag of sweet wine above your mouth, slapping said bag repeatedly while guzzling down its contents straight from the nozzle.    Maybe you’re bag slapping days are now far behind you, and you just want a nice wine to sip on while binge watching Netflix after a long day of adulting.    Maybe you’re not much of wine drinker at all but want to bring something to that thing you were invited to, and the super cheap, mega sized box of Franzia seems like a solid choice.    Coming in at […]
