Candlelight Ambiance was founded by two women with an ambition to infuse modern weddings, parties, and banquets with a newfound romance and wonder through meticulously designed candle arrangements. With their glowing aura, soothing warmth, and pleasant aroma, candles create a sensory experience that imprints on the memory, making wedding parties, anniversary dinners, and Superbowl parties even more special.
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Our family business has made it a priority to be a part of the neighborhood we are so lucky to serve. We think of our espresso and wine bar more like a living room than a restaurant. We enjoy getting to know our guests and think of them more like family than paying customers.
What is one of your most popular offerings? How is it prepared? Our tortilla flats make the perfect tapas or light snack. With five kinds to choose from, there is sure to be one that whets your whistle. They are made on a flour or gluten free tortilla and topped with fresh vegetables, cheese and sauce.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Family! And a love of serving others. Our espresso and wine bar is our second location, right near DU and the Newman Performing Arts Center. Our shops are named after our grandmothers, Mae Rose and Jeanette. We hope our shop is as inviting to you as their homes were to their friends and neighbors!
What do you love most about your job? Not working for the man!
Fresh from their successful founding and franchising of the Smiling Moose Deli, local restaurateurs Kevin Sloane and brothers Bryan and Kevin Brutsch have tackled a new project: experimenting with what international influences can fit into a taco tortilla. Each freshly-made tortilla arrives filled with treasures from disparate and delicious cuisines, such as spicy chicken vindaloo, slow-roasted Mexican carnitas, or Caribbean jerk pulled pork. Garnishes and sides add a splash of color, texture, and intense flavor, from the housemade guacamole and pico de gallo, to the cripsy slaw blends and jicama.
A laid-back vibe permeates through Marg's LoDo and Cherry Creek restaurants, thanks to cool green walls, rustic wood accents, and generous patio seating. Diners share a leisurely hour or two among friends, with no need to don a blazer or formal taco bib, while sipping margaritas spruced up with herbs from the restaurant mini-garden.
Our goal is to put original art in every home and office. Most people are intimidated by the art industry, but we make it accessible to all. We provide artists with affordable marketing tools, rent our space (our beautiful Gallery is the perfect/unique venue for your next event), offer custom framing, and more!
Inside the booths at Global DJ Academy, one will find instructors such as Walt White, a 15-year veteran DJ who goes by the name Dark Agenda, and Elliot Overson––aka DJ Wushu––demonstrating the art of thrilling crowds armed only with a set of turntables and records. The team collectively accounts for thousands of hours of experience both teaching and performing for live nightclub audiences, unlike amateur DJs who only play for those living above and below them. This level of experience ensures that the academy’s 2,500 square-foot facility is put to good use as they impart their knowledge to students using its two production studios, soundproof recording booth, and six DJ workstations. Students can expect to learn skills ranging from the basics to advanced analog techniques, such as scratching and effects, all on the school’s modern user interfaces as well as production software.
Walking into Lehrer's Flowers is like walking into a massive botanical garden. This 30,000-square-foot facility stacks its pathways with plants from floor to ceiling. Down one aisle, the light bouquet of roses tantalizes the nose while a wall of green delights the eye in the next. Customers can pick and choose individual flowers or order specialty arrangements to celebrate weddings or mourn a passing. The shop also runs flower design classes for those who want to use their individual artistic touch to create their own arrangements.
