  • Colorado Cannabis Tours – My Experience

    This past Saturday, I assisted Mike Eymer, owner and founder of Colorado Cannabis Tours, with his weekly scheduled marijuana tour. Not only was I serving as “Vanna White,” this was also my first Colorado Cannabis Tour experience. I did not know what to expect, but I was certainly excited about this journey. A small group of 8 congregated at the Cheba Hut in downtown Denver…

  • The Squeaky Bean’s 1st Annual FARRAH-mony

    Does June 29th have special significance to you? Tonight I will be honoring the late Farah Fawcett at The Squeaky Bean’s 1st annual FARRAH-mony. It has been 5 long years since Farrah’s passing, but Johnny Ballen will ensure that she is never forgotten. The Squeaky Bean’s owner, Johnny Ballen, has put a great amount of thought and details into the quirky charm of his restaurant….

  • My Encounter with Jane West

    Last night, I had the privilege of attending my first Edible Event hosted by Jane West and sponsored by Ideal 420 Soil. This private event was held at Spill Lounge in Lower Downtown Denver for industry guests attending the 1st Annual Cannabis Business Summit. Everything you think and have heard is TRUE! Jane West certainly knows how to throw a party. Her attention to detail…

  • Novo Coffee Changing Denver Coffee Culture

    Have you ever experienced a coffee tasting? I hadn’t, until recently when Novo invited me on their roastery tour to learn about the complex process of what truly makes a great cup of coffee. Starting in Africa one of the members of the Brodsky family seeks and sources the coffee direct from the farmer himself. Then, the coffee beans are carefully packed, floated across the…

  • Welcome to The Grubbery!

    This past Saturday morning I found myself with The Guide in hand trying to figure out where to go for brunch. Denver’s crazy brunch scene can be discouraging, with wait times up to an hour and a half. 11:30am and starving, I suggested we check out The Grubbery. In about 10 minutes we arrived from downtown Denver and were comfortably seated in a booth. The…

  • The Medicine Man is Gearing Up for Double Production!

    Last week City Sessions was invited on a grow house tour of the Medicine Man. Andy Williams, co-owner of the single-largest recreational/medical dispensary in Colorado blew our minds when showing us around his expanding grow operation. Moving from room to room we were in awe of the sheer size of it all. Seeing everything from the vegetation room (also known as the green mile) to…

  • Mercer Place – A Secret Gem!

    The other day I stumbled upon the cutest resale boutique on South Broadway, Mercer Place. Sonya greeted me as I walked in and assisted me as I looked through their collection of top-line label dresses and pants. As I pulled items off the rack I vocally stated “If this fits, it’s mine!” Being alone and shopping is difficult. At least for me it is. Sonya…

  • Bistro Barbès – Where Europe Meets the Middle East

    Head to Park Hill for an unforgettable dining experience at Bistro Barbès. Chef Jon Robbins, former chef of Mizuna and of pop-up restaurant Gypsy Kitchen, truly shines in his own space. What an experience! It all started with the ease of parking. The casual, charming restaurant was inviting and unpretentious. The staff provided top-notch service and the cuisine was superb, reminding me of a food…

  • City Sessions Launches The Guide

    City Sessions launched the first edition of their experience book The Guide, into the Denver scene on Friday May 9th at The Infinite Monkey Theorem. The Guide was a hit among guests, who enjoyed glasses of wine, food from Farm to Truck (food truck) and tunes played by two piece band, Hundred Year Plan. The event was a success and all that bought The Guide…

  • We Can No Longer Be Reactive to Our Health

    The 9Health Fair Yoga Open celebrated healthy living on Sunday May 4th at the Colorado Convention Center. “We can no longer be reactive to our health,” this was the message Kindness Yoga founder Patrick Harrington conveyed during his 25 minute guided yoga session. This message echoed throughout the Health Fair and a large community of like minded yogi’s showed up with their mates in of…
