When visiting Flights Wine and Coffee's Morrison location, guests might feel as though they've been invited over to a friend's house for an evening soiree. Housed inside an 1870s cottage, the tasting room invites visitors to settle into cushy leather furniture surrounded by pastoral wall hangings and a crackling fireplace. On the garden patio, guests gather around wrought iron tables and warm their hands by the fire pit.
The two locations are connected by more than decor. Each hosts a lengthy list of wines by the glass, and a lengthier list of bottles. A menu of light plates and tapas pairs well with each pour, stoking taste buds with flavorful hummus and wedges of warm brie. Wine experts are on hand to guide guests through their tasting experience, picking out compatible wines and offering instruction in properly swirling each pour in a lab-grade centrifuge.
Shedding its former Fatburger brand, Epic Grill hosts a revamped menu that includes a new lineup of never-frozen burgers, sandwiches, and sides. Weighing in at 3 ounces, The Little E burger ($3.50) fills smaller appetites but struggles to follow in the belly-stretching footsteps of its 6-ounce brother, The E burger ($4.99)—both of which can be topped with add-ons including chili ($0.79) and grilled mushrooms ($0.69). Cooks slow-cook the pulled-pork sandwich's Carolina-style pork ($5.25), which comes smothered in a smoky barbecue sauce. Patrons can also orally explore nonbunned eats with Epic Burger's salads ($6.95–$7.95) or wrap their jowls around the popular honey-hawaiian sliders (4 for $5.95), great for sharing with friends or imitating how yetis would eat The E burger.
Head chef Sean McGaughey populates a five-course menu with seasonal, scrumptious new American cuisine, which has garnered Opus Restaurant a ranking as one of Denver's top 25 restaurants by 5280 magazine. Pre-meal palates prepare for gourmet courses by ditching preconceived tastes and mouthfuls of marbles for small amuse-bouches, compliments of the chef. For the first course, earthy asparagus flan dons a crisp scarf of tempura asparagus beneath a shower of aged balsamic vinegar. Next, a sweet summer-melon salad garnished with Spanish sheep's-milk cheese and shaved fennel makes incisors swoon before feasting on butter-poached salmon nestled atop carnaroli risotto and seasonal veggies. Course four intoxicates twosomes with the sous-vide flavors of tender redbird chicken and parmigiano-reggiano pasta and plays precursor to the sweet crème brûlée, which, like an edible peace treaty, caps off the culinary crusade. Each seasonal selection can be altered for herbivores or gluten dodgers, ensuring diners of every diet can savor the chef's creations.
With a focus on honor, integrity, and a positive attitude, Family Martial Arts Center is much more than just a place to get in shape. Though students of all ages are apt to develop stronger cores and build endurance during tae kwon do, brazilian jujitsu, and kickboxing classes, they’re just as likely to become immersed in the philosophies behind these disciplines. As a result, they’ll learn values such as self-respect, self-confidence, and self-defense—including self-defense against bullies shaped like giant chocolate-fudge brownies.
Zaggora's founder Dessi was scrambling. She needed to lose a little weight before her wedding, but none of the weight loss products she used seem to move the needle. Eventually, she took matters into her own hands, inventing her own effective method for slimming down. Zaggora's multi-layer capris, tops, shorts, and blazers put the heat naturally emitted by the body during exercise to work burning more calories. A 2012–2013 study conducted by ETScience at University of Southern California showed users wearing Zaggora used less energy to achieve high cardio levels and burned anywhere from 6–18% more calories and than those wearing standard exercise clothing.
Made from a comfortable bioceramic material, the shorts' ThermoFit technology smoothes thighs and other dimple-prone areas by warming body tissues and increasing their metabolic rate. This process boosts energy expenditure before and after exercise, and aids in eliminating cellulite-causing toxins.
