Musical marijuana: Strain names inspired by the sweet sound of rock

Music and marijuana are like two birds of a feather. They don’t just flock together; they’re the birdie yin to the other’s yang. After all, what is a concert without a fat sack? And what good is passing the dutchie to the left-hand side without a sweet, sweet soundtrack to pass it to?

Given that both weed and music are...

Vegan edibles to feed your inner hippie

We have a bone to pick with you, Colorado. There are NOT very many vegan edibles in this state, which became super clear as we did the research for this article. How?! How are there not more vegan-friendly weed edible options in a state full of healthy weirdos and weed? Someone please explain it to us.

California, on...

PB&J lagers and free chicken wings: Our memories from GABF

We are the luckiest journalists on the planet because we got to cover the 2018 Great American Beer Festival in Denver last weekend. It was a hoppy, slightly foggy good time, full of saisons and sour mashes and one EFFING DELICIOUS Oreo beer. There were weirdos dressed as beer steins, a bunch of very sweaty dudes from Alaska...

Beer for people who hate beer: A taste test

There are some people who love beer, because beer is delicious and it gets you drunk. And then there are those weirdos who hate drinking beer because they don’t have refined tastes or know what living truly is. Our staff writer, Amanda Push, is of the latter group. She hates beer.

“If I’m really drunk I’ll drink beer,”...

Piecing together the pack

The midday sun is menacing, and it beats down relentlessly on the small group of people as they make their way up the hill toward the sound of high-pitched howling.

One man – an older gentleman in a gray wolf t-shirt – trudges halfway up before abruptly turning back toward the purple yurt. Too high, he says, and no,...

Don’t miss Dwayne Dopsie or these other acts at Telluride Blues & Brews Fest

Telluride will be transforming from ski town to blues haven this weekend, thanks to an influx of killer blues musicians making their way to the top of the mountain for Telluride Blues & Brews Festival. You can catch dope blues acts for three days straight, and we recommend that you do. Just call in sick or something....

Music lives here

It’s not terribly easy to play music with one hand, but Durango DJ Fidel Castro manages to do so with ease. He learned how after a stroke rendered his left arm and leg paralyzed a little over two years ago. All it took was persistence, and perhaps a bit of stubborn pride, to figure out how to take on the turntables once...

Let’s take a Four Corners distillery road trip

There’s something really rad about consuming foods that are native to your region. Whether it’s a side of nutty, forest-grown mushrooms (watch out for the all-white ones, though) or the foraged greens on your fancy salad, locally sourced food is where it’s at.

But while morels are great, today we’re going to be talking...

Pagosa Therapeutics offers a window into the cannabis world

Step into Pagosa Therapeutics in Pagosa Springs, and you’ll likely notice that this dispensary differs a bit from the status quo. There are windows where the walls should be – windows that lead to another world: the cannagrow, where the shop’s cannabis plants are grown and nurtured. A bit further down the hallway, right past...

Day-drinking at 2nd Deli and Spirits

It would be hard to hear the game’s scores over the roaring sound of Citizen Cope, whose music plays as a stream of hungry patrons make their way in and out of 2nd Deli and Spirits, a new restaurant housed in the old Toshi’s spot on East 2nd and College. It’s the middle of the afternoon on a weekday, but the lunch crowd seems...

Travel to find your inner zen at the Ghost Ranch

If you’re looking for an alternative way to heal your soul, you might try checking out the Ghost Ranch in Abiquiú, New Mexico. The 21,000-acre Ghost Ranch Education and Retreat Center was once home to the painter Georgia O’Keefe, and now welcomes visitors from all over the globe, all of whom are looking for the same thing:...

Searching for the truth at Roswell UFO Museum

Alien enthusiasts, gather round. We need to discuss a group trip to Roswell, New Mexico, home of the famous – and supposed (wink, wink) – 1947 UFO crash that left weird metal debris all over rancher W.W. “Mack” Brazel’s land, and made front page of the local paper.

While we’re in Roswell, we’ll stop at the...
