An outdoorsman since childhood, Jimmy Laverty can regularly be seen with a hefty pack full of gear strapped to his back and a strip of jerky hanging from his mouth. It came as no surprise to anyone, therefore, when he decided to open My Jerky Shop, a boutique palace of jerky offerings with dried and smoked meats in more than 100 varieties.

Light spices add flair to strips of ostrich or alligator jerky, two of the most exotic options, while maple-syrup-infused bacon and classic buffalo jerky keep traditionalist tongues happy. Meat-based mixes called pemmican incorporate sweet bursts of dried fruit with the smoky taste of beef. The majority of Jimmy's jerkies contain no MSG or preservatives, just good, old-fashioned meat obtained from Rocky Mountain suppliers. He even carries strips especially formulated for pets, an excellent way to repay a dog for kindly listening to your movie pitches.

Creative Branch's studio is guaranteed to nurture intimate, hands-on classes: with table and counter space for only 14 people, an instructor is never out of reach as students work clay into spontaneous hand-built shapes or sleek wheel-thrown bowls and vases. Albino dinosaurs and rhinos glance shyly from shelves of bisqueware, waiting to bloom into vibrantly painted decorations in guests' hands and then undergo professional glazing and firing.

Clayworkers might find further inspiration in the resident artists' handmade wares. Available in the shop and online, the collection brims with rustic mugs, dangly earrings, and abstract conversation pieces, ideal for keeping dinner guests from noticing that half the plates are just newspaper torn into circles.
