Governor John Hickenlooper signed a bill Monday that officially bans greyhound racing in Colorado. At one time, greyhound racing was a $250 million enterprise here, as fans thrilled to the cry of "Here comes Rusty!" as the dogs took off after a fake bunny.

Denver has just come off the high of the sold-out Great American Beer Festival and a week's worth of equally beer-geeky events, but that doesn't mean the town has run out of brews. In fact, quite the opposite. There is still a ton going on. If you're a brewery, though, and you don't see your event l ... More >>
Music is life. Or at least it is for us. When we're not writing about it, we're thinking about it, talking about it or listening to it. These are the things that were in heavy rotation for us this week. What are you listening to? What should we be listening to? C'mon now. Sharing is caring. Don't ho ... More >>

Slap Shot 2: Number 28.The sports movie is rarely versatile: an outsider, or group of outsiders (wrong race, wrong gender, wrong species), have uncanny talent in their field, but the old guard (typically, white, old men), don't like the change the new person represents. So the rebels have to ... More >>
