LPGA teaching professional Lana Ortega is making her mark on the world of golf: she’s been named one of the 50 Best Women Teachers by Golf Digest on numerous occasions, works as an editor for Golf Tips Magazine, and contributes to a slew of other golf publications. Lana approaches lessons with the mentality that everyone has a unique swing, and she adapts her private and group lessons to help students develop a form best suited to their individual characteristics. An expert club fitter, Lana also ensures that her students are swinging with the right equipment, rather than subbing in a modified soup ladle for a sand wedge. Lana also embraces new golf technology such as video analysis and offers clinics for women. Her teaching facility also features a Callaway Performance Center which does club fittings and has an indoor putting studio.

The American Basketball Association has nearly 90 teams. But ever since their founding in 2010, the Colorado Kings have resided amongst the elite, leaving most of the league in their wake. During their inaugural season, the Kings made quite the impression: they went 24-1, and advanced to the ABA's Elite 8 round of the playoffs. Instead of celebrating that success by having all of its players dipped in gold, the team followed up with a record-setting effort in 2011, when it recorded an ABA-best 32 victories in a row. For as much success as the Kings have had on the court, they've also made an impact off of it. The organization's players give back to the community in a number of ways, including by running youth basketball camps and hosting charity golf tournaments.

Light streams in from floor-to-ceiling windows inside Fire + Spice, pouring over cozy leather chairs, curved booths, and a sleek wooden bar. But the interior of this comfortable yet upscale restaurant isn’t the only picturesque element in the place. Southwestern fare, inspired by Mexican spices, is painstakingly prepared and arranged into edible works of art, much like Picasso’s canvases during his stew period. Notable menu items include chipotle chicken enchiladas, shrimp tacos, and Alamosa striped bass with crispy yucca root.

Surrounded by the eponymous mountain range, Guests at A Bite of the Rockies descend on The Denver Mart to chow down on cuisines from more than 80 eateries and food trucks. Among them, Town and Country Foods transports their organic veggies and natural meats to the festival, which participants can sample along with artichoke and spinach dip from Gourmet Farms of Colorado. Boulder Vegans doles out their signature cashew cheese, and Glazed and Confused Donuts gives folks a dose of the dulcet with their preservative- and chemical-free confections. In addition, chefs lead cooking demonstrations that teach onlookers how to create healthy meals at home.

Though the food is the main draw, A Bit of the Rockies offers up plenty of other sensory delights. Live music from the Colorado Symphony sets the soundtrack to the event, while jewelry vendors and kids' activities round out the family-friendly shindig.
