You don't have to trudge deep into the woods to find Kolache Cabin. The tiny, wood-walled, walk-up shop is located right at the corner of Alameda and Santa Fe, and getting your hands on one of the fresh baked Eastern European buns is as easy as driving up to the window. Chefs whip up several varieties of the pillowy buns each day, infusing them with savory stuffings such as pulled pork or eggs, bacon, cheese, and jalapenos. They even offer a kolache stuffed with sausage and gravy, which they bill as "biscuits and gravy you can eat with your hands," as opposed to the classic version which is traditionally served with chopsticks.

At the tender age of 6, Mark Cafiero received his first camera. Though it was broken and filled with cartoons his father had drawn of Mark and his sisters, that camera sparked an early interest in photography. Since then, that spark has erupted into a full-fledged passion, leading Mark to become a professional photographer who has snapped photos for hundreds of clients, including celebrities and professional athletes. To share his spark with others, Mark founded Chimpsy, an resource that helps photographers of all experience levels calibrate their skills with casual in-person and online classes.
Available in more than 30 cities across the nation, Chimpsy's two-hour crash course features a hands-on shooting session and campfire-style presentation on topics ranging from camera anatomy to photo composition. For home study, online classes help photographers—beginners and aspiring pros alike—get more from their pictures through two-hour video tutorials that cover photo-editing software, shooting tips and techniques, and steps on how to build a photography business. From the comfort of their bedrooms, students can watch these professional photographer-led tutorials live or replay previously recorded sessions. Along with instructional classes, Chimpsy offers shutterbugs a place to submit photos for contests with monthly prizes or for feedback from peers, pros, and sentient picture frames.
Snap dragon Mark Cafiero is the owner and lead photographer of Cafiero Photographers, the founder and president of Family Tree Photographers, and an avid advocate of outdoor exploration. In addition to penning pieces for Rangefinder magazine and presenting at international photography conferences, Mark's also well versed in natural Colorado adventures. The small class size (25 students maximum) allows for a true hands-on experience. Choose from a variety of lens-friendly locations: downtown Denver, Washington Park, Pearl Street Mall, 300 yards beneath the earth's surface, or nearby sunrise hikes on some of the state's top trails. The classes offer instruction on subjects including framing and composition, portrait shooting, and use of natural light. Students will also learn about the anatomy and function of their cameras in a way that won't embarrass the camera.
At age 19, Kendra Rostvedt set out to sell snowboard gear out of a storage closet. She opened her first bona fide retail shop in 1998, operating under the ethos that boardsports should remain accessible to anybody who wants to try them. Today, the walls of Thrifty Stick Boardshop are lined with longboards, snowboards, and skateboard decks. Skaters can peruse seasonal apparel from more than 50 brands—including Gnu, Volcom, and DC—or bring in equipment to the repair shop, where technicians tune up skis with hot wax and fasten wheels to busted hoverboards so they won't be completely useless.
