While the heart of Johnny Carino's menu is rooted in genuine Italian traditions, forward-thinking creativity has birthed what they like to call their signature dishes. Led by executive chef Chris Peitersen, the seasoned kitchen staff blends fresh ingredients along with extra time to create high-quality, spiced Italian preparations. Diners will find entrees such as 16-layer lasagna with made-from-scratch sauce, and pizzas made with home-baked crust. Other signature choices include the spicy shrimp and chicken, baked stuffed mushrooms topped with house lemon basil cream sauce, and tiramisu made from the ground up. Entrees can be paired any selection from Carino's extensive wine list and drink menu.

The curators of the Telluride Jazz Festival use a very particular word to define their annual event—“celebration.” That joyful spirit permeates the three-day happening, which lauds the American art form by welcoming some of the jazz world’s brightest luminaries for performances in a stunning setting. Blue notes ring through a verdant field surrounded by the San Juan Mountains, providing a picturesque backdrop for audiences lounging in chairs or atop nature’s chair: grass. Sunshine gilds lively tunes throughout the day, while at night, visitors can explore additional sets at intimate venues throughout the town. A yearly parade brings the weekend to its jubilant peak as bands wind down Colorado Avenue toward the Town Park Stage.
