What I like Wednesday: Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art

A piece by Vance Kirkland I was lucky enough to visit the Kirkland Museum of Fine and Decorative Art for the first time last weekend and definitely recommend. It's worth at least one visit, if not more. I knew very little about this museum going in, except that it featured furniture. This is the museum…

What I like Wednesday: Westlands Park

Denver isn't the only place around here that has great parks. The Denver Tech Center (DTC) has a handful of green spaces that are enjoyable and pleasant. While a future post may expand on more than just one park, I only want to talk about Westlands Park for this post. The park, which is off…

9-13-21 Out and about in Denver

Shari now knows why I like City Park Farmer's Market. Food, food, food. I took her there this past Saturday morning and we started our time there splitting the vegan biscuits and gravy from The Easy Vegan. Best vegan biscuits I've found. And best vegan gravy. So it was a score for me. The biscuits…

What I like Wednesday: Animal Sanctuaries

For those animals that find themselves in less than ideal conditions due to the arrogance of humans, it's places like The Wild Animal Sanctuary and Broken Shovels Farm Sanctuary that rescues, rehomes, and rehabilitates them. They provide abused animals a new and better life. I've had the privilege of visiting both places years ago and…

What I like Wednesday: Affordable Arts Festival

The Affordable Arts Festival, hosted by the Arapahoe Community College, is an annual event where, for $12, you can wind your way between artist booths and buy art that speaks to your heart for $100 or less. This was the first year I attended, all thanks to my friend, Aeri, who let me know it…

What I Like Wednesday: Blue Sushi

Blue Sushi. The largest selection of both vegan sushi and delicious sushi I have ever found. This is not a local establishment, it is in multiple states, but who can blame them for that? It's just so great that it deserves to be in all the places. I can't figure out where the chain originated…

What I like Wednesday: Cherry Creek Reservoir

Colorado has a handful of reservoirs scattered throughout the Denver metro area that are adequate substitutes for the lack of water and ocean that this state, well, lacks. We actually have lots of lakes and reservoirs across the whole state but I sadly haven't been to most of them so you'll just have to use…
