Happy Hour at Tap & Burger at Sloan’s Lake

On Friday night we decided that we needed a movie date night.  We settled on seeing The Post at the Sloan’s Lake Alamo Drafthouse, which is currently our favorite movie theater.  And after dinner on Thursday at Hop Alley, we wanted something a little quicker […]

Dinner at Hop Alley

Dinner at Hop Alley

We have heard buzz about Hop Alley (35th and Larimer) since we moved to Denver.  It is on the Eater 38, Gail Simmons gave it props, and it is on 5280’s list of best restaurants.  They only offer limited reservations though.  Plus, it’s outside our […]

Drinks at 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Company

After a wonderful dinner at Vintage, we convinced our friends that we needed to use our Passports for a nightcap.  There was one Passport stop in Vail, and it was 10th Mountain Whiskey & Spirit Company.  We liked the name of the spot, which of […]

Lunch at Westbound & Down

Lunch at Westbound & Down

We ended up at Westbound & Down Brewing Company (in Idaho Springs) on our way back from Vail over MLK weekend.  We were a little hungry and a lot thirsty, so we thought we’d give it a shot.  After all, when we gave a shoutout […]

Dinner at Vintage

Dinner at Vintage

Vail has a lot of good dining options, but our current favorite is Vintage.  We originally tried Vintage on our first trip to Vail (for New Year’s 2017).  We were just looking for a decently priced spot that would be laid back and serve good […]

Sips and Snacks at Luca

Sips and Snacks at Luca

The other night we went to a board game party at our friend’s house.  The party didn’t start until 7 pm.  So we had a few hours to kill after work.  Luckily there was a Winter Passport stop, Luca (at 7th & Grant Streets), right by […]

Top Chef Denver: Episode 6

This Top Chef Denver post has spoilers. As far as we’re concerned Top Chef Denver Episode 6, “Now That’s a Lot of Schnitzel,” had some big ups and downs.  Two people went home, including one of our favorite contestants (though only one was eliminated).  Both […]

Shoutout to Rioja

Shoutout to Rioja

Rioja (on Larimer Square) was one of the first really good restaurants that we ate at in Denver.  Em ate at Rioja when she came to Denver for her job interview.  She loved it, so we ate there again on the night we got engaged. […]
