The chocolatiers behind Concertos in Chocolate hand-dip all their truffles, nut-filled bark, and other confections in European-style chocolate forged from fresh whipping cream, butter, and pure flavorings. Orb-like truffles hide unique fillings flavored with lavender and champagne, and nostalgic confections, including hefty coconut stacks, keep children from sneaking off on time-travel missions to find the treats their parents reminisce about. The confectioners also mold fresh-fruit purees into fruit gigs—gems of black currant and passionfruit that sparkle with dustings of sugar.

When John and Ulla first traveled through the Palisade countryside in 1994, it was filled with peach orchards. But after they attended a seminar on grape-growing the same year, the pair found themselves more inspired by that particular fruit. They returned to Palisade to purchase a 10-acre plot, camping in a trailer amid the trees as they transformed the land into their own vineyard. Years of planting and pruning vines yielded a rich harvest including Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon—and Bookcliff Vineyards.
Today, Bookcliff has expanded into 37 acres, and Ulla and John produce a dozen varietals using sustainable practices and strictly their own Colorado grapes. The grounds include a winery and tasting room, where guests peek at the Old-World-meets-New-World-meets-brewing-world lineup of oak barrels and stainless steel tanks. In addition to chardonnay and cabernet sauvignon, their award-winning selection of wines includes lesser-known varietals such as Muscat and Viognier.
Proprietor Larry Davis's 43 years of experience in the meat industry lends to the selection of high-quality meats at Gourmet Meat & Sausage Shop. The meat masters age the tender selections for five weeks before hand-cutting them according to each grumbling stomach’s order. Tastily top an empty dining-room table with one of eight different types of sausage, a variety of natural, hormone-free pork and poultry, or a cut of elk, buffalo, or lamb. The Red Bird natural boneless chicken breast ($4.99/pound) proffers a savory centerpiece for any meal, and the marinated fillet sirloin steak ($7.99/pound) is so tender it could be cut through with chopping motions from a persistent tongue. Embrace Saturday morning with thick-sliced hickory-smoked bacon ($6.29/pound) or celebrate a hefty rise with the hearty all-natural pork chops ($3.99/pound).
The classic Midas oil change (up to a $31.99 value for most vehicles) begins by quenching the deep-down thirst of your steed's chassis and restoring its electrolytes with Valvoline semi-synthetic oil. Midas will swap out up to five quarts of oil matched to the correct viscosity grade for your vehicle. They'll also replace your filter and conduct a 55-point courtesy check on your car. Lastly, they'll refill the wiper fluid, imbuing your vehicle with enough confidence to shrug off the slings and splatters of loose-boweled birds and directionally challenged insects.
