July is a perfect time to bask under the stars at one of Denver's many outdoor screenings or to cuddle up in an air-conditioned theater and get out of the heat. This month's picks for movie events include throw-back classics, one queer festival and two killer new releases. See also: The ten best g ... More >>
Two years ago, when we first stopped by Chronorado Medical in Denver, we left unimpressed but hopeful after discovering the White Urkle we brought home was infested with bugs. It was a shame, because otherwise, the buds were plump, ripe with THC goodness and stank to high heaven with light grapey, e ... More >>
It's been almost three years since I checked out Pure's original location, on Bannock just south of the Denver Art Museum. Since then, the shop has expanded to two other locations quietly selling cannabis with what seems like little to no media presence. No cannabis cups and no obnoxious Internet ad ... More >>
This past year has been tough for many people, and we're eager to kiss 2012 goodbye. In hopes that 2013 will turn out to be much luckier for many, we invited some of the town's cultural tastemakers -- entrepreneurs and entertainers we're lucky to have in Denver -- to answer a trio of questions. We e ... More >>
While infinitely different than being there in the flesh, a live concert film can provide an up-close, multi-angled, cinematically inspired perspective of the music experience -- not to mention a glimpse into history for those who were born decades later. Such will be the case for a majority of the ... More >>
The first time I stopped by Urban Dispensary was a few months ago, when, despite a sign out front showing that the center should have been open, it wasn't. That was slightly frustrating, but I figured it was a one-time thing. So I stopped by the cut-rate, low-grade dispensary next door instead and m ... More >>
Talk about hot! We posted a slide show of the 2013 Colorado Firefighters Calendar photo shoot yesterday, and most readers appreciated the effort. But where there's smoke, there's ire.
I'll be honest: The name Chronorado sounds like something a marble-mouthed hippie would say when telling his friends where the Rainbow Gathering is this summer. And the place isn't that appealing from outside. But lately, the shop's been getting decent reviews from people I've encountered, and I fig ... More >>
"I was running down an alley, and then I heard them yell behind me, 'Mohawk, Mohawk!' There was a car parked at the end of the alley, and I was like, 'Oh, fuck.'"
Murray Martinez.Attorney David Lane is well known for defending the likes of controversial CU professor Ward Churchill on First Amendment grounds. So it's no surprise he's representing Murray Martinez, owner of Golden's venerable Buffalo Rose, against an attempt to revoke the venue's liquor l ... More >>
Perhaps you've heard by now about the "riot" that happened a few days ago in New York surrounding a free concert featuring Drake and Hanson. Weird that there was a riot at a concert featuring two of maybe the blandest performers ever to exist. Weirder still is that Hanson and Drake were even perform ... More >>
Megan Cullen While this week's profile on King Khan focused primarily on his trip to jail and how he first got into garage music, it only scraped the surface of our interview with the guy. Known for some insanely great live shows both with the Shrines and BBQ Show, Khan gives almost an equal ... More >>
Tom Gorman thinks Colorado is going to pot -- and he's out to clean up the mess.The Denver Post has labeled Tom Gorman, director of the Rocky Mountain High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area program, a "drug-war soldier" who didn't get the memo that the battle was over. Medical marijuana advoca ... More >>
You've read one Hunter S. Thompson tribute, you've read them all, right? Ever since the Good Doctor took his own life at his Owl Farm compound outside of Aspen in 2005, lots of folks have been trying to put into words what, exactly, Thompson left us with. There's a new entry on that list: Go ... More >>
‚ÄčAmong Colorado ski towns, Vail gets ragged on for being totally, painfully fake. Unfortunately, the town can now boast of hosting an Old-West tradition that rivals Aspen and Telluride would probably rather do without: the drunken-bar shootout.At 7:30 on Saturday, 63-year-old Richard "Rossi" Morea ...

Call hell-raiser Hunter S. Thompson's style what you will, a new doc succeeds when saluting his substance.
Scorsese and the Stones, together again.
They've paid $140 million and then some for their team. When they travel to other parks since they erased the curse of the Bambino in 2004, bandwagon fans make up anywhere from a third to half of the crowd. Even when their team isn't playing, you can find Sox fans in any Major League ballpark in the ... More >>
