The Healing House menu is freaking huge, and that alone makes it seem like another warehouse crap shack in the boonies getting by on a (somewhat) isolated location to sell bud. The isolated-location part is true, with the shop pretty much at the western end of Alameda just a few miles before it cr ... More >>

I tried with 420 Wellness. I really did. I had heard good things about some of the shop's strains -- and one of them took second place at the High Times Medical Cannabis Cup last weekend. But in the end, my experience with the shop went up in flames along with the un-purged butane hash I bought ther ... More >>
It may be a bit brisk for outdoor dining but as of this morning, spring has official sprung. For us, that means it's time to make an excuse to get out of the office for an extended lunch, grabbing a seat on a patio and enjoying some time in the sun...and away from the glow of our computer screens. ...

Uptown vs. South Broadway in this match-up. Show your pride, residents! Or if you don't live in either spot, let us know which area is tops for dining out.
Lori MidsonIf starting a weekend morning fighting hordes of hipsters while you wait for a breakfast table sounds like your idea of hell, you'll want to avoid Jelly, a Capitol Hill spot with a fun menu that I review this week.

This building at Alameda and Zuni held Taqueria La Capilla until last fall, when the place closed up shop.

When we heard that Chipotle was testing some new items at its location at 371 East Alameda Avenue, we leapt for joy, shouting, "Pride of our city!

So the organizers of the Rock 'N' Roll Denver Marathon evidently take the name of the event very seriously. So much so that they've convinced the members of Semisonic -- you know, the dudes who did that song "Closing Time" -- to get the old band back together, man, just for the occasion. Wise ... More >>
Super Star keeps the home fires burning.For many, many months, things have looked dim for the two dim sum institutions at Alameda Square.

Breaking it down at Broken Bread.
