Great Eats around Denver!

1. Denver Biscuit Co. Ever in the mood for some ol’ fashioned comfort food? Denver Biscuit Co. is the place to go! What started as Denver’s first gourmet food truck has turned in to a local favorite for many. Tucked in to the back of the Atomic Cowboy Bar, you can find anything from biscuit French toast, a biscuit cordon bleu, or shrimp and grits smothered over a hot, buttery biscuit. (YUM!) This joint has gained popularity and has been featured on the Food Network, The Cooking Channel, and CNN. If that’s not enough credibility, then what is?! 3237 E. Colfax Ave. (3.8 miles from The Manhattan)

2. Linger Eatuaries. What used to be an old mortuary has transformed into a modern-day restaurant. Two things that you may not think go hand and hand that surprisingly do. The restaurant has embraced the history of the building by turning the old AC units into hanging lamps, the church pew as a host stand, the conveyer belts as tables, and much more. Not to mention, they have a rooftop with freakishly awesome views! The food is trendy, unique, and delicious. The happy hour runs 4-6:30 Monday through Friday with $5 appetizers and cocktails, $4 draft beers, and ½ price wines by the glass. Great food and an enticing ambiance that you don’t want to miss out on. 2030 W. 30th Ave. (0.8 miles from The Manhattan)

3. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. Whiskey, handcrafted beers, cravable food, and music- What more could you ask for? This is a great spot for a happy hour after a long day of work, a night out on the town, pre-gaming a sports event, or even brunch that offers 10% off your purchase and a free mimosa, Bloody Mary, or beer if you wear you PJ’s! The menu’s got it all: sandwiches, burgers, salads, shareable dishes, and deserts. 1515 Wazzee St. (0.7 miles from The Manhattan)

4. Avanti Food & Beverage. Have you ever questioned where to go to dinner and could never come up with a consensus decision? All problems have now been solved. Seven of Denver’s most recognized food trucks have planted themselves in an urban and sophisticated restaurant/bar. The options vary from Italian, Mexican, Mediterranean, Asian, and much more. Avanti offers complimentary valet parking, a rooftop bar, and several communal eating areas that make for the perfect social outing. 3200 Pecos St. (0.7 miles from The Manhattan)

5. Ale House. Great atmosphere, an extensive hand crafted beer selection, and upscale food—doesn’t get much better than that! The Ale House, located in the Lower Highlands district of Denver is somewhere everyone needs to check off their bucket list. The menu offers great American food with a modern spin. Satisfy your cravings with ale-basted pretzels, a crispy chickpea burger, or a deconstructed chicken pot pie. Finish the meal off with a refreshing and crisp handcrafted local beer. Is your mouth watering yet? 2501 16th St. (0.8 miles from The Manhattan)

Art Comes to Life at the Denver Botanic Gardens

September 2, 2015 4:38 pm

The Denver Botanic Gardens is more than just a collection of eclectic blooms; it's a space where art comes to life. The botanic gardens host rotating art exhibits, and locals are still talking about one from the fall of 2014. It was created by renowned artist Dave Chihuly, a pioneer in the modern studio glass movement in the United States. So, fittingly, his installation at the Denver Botanic Gardens contained of countless pieces of blue glass spikes in all different shades, a prickly tower that evokes a dessert plant.

Although it's too late to enjoy Chihuly's masterpiece, you can always see a new art exhibit at the Denver Botanic Gardens when you visit. What's more, its colorful gardens feature mostly native plants all the time. If you bring a little one along for a trip, check out the Mordecai Children's Garden for fun, interactive exhibits in a three-acre playspace. They can even go searching for fish in the Pipsqueak Pond and bugs in the Glorious Grasslands.
