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.
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.
A lengthy lineup of traditional game-day fare and a sports atmosphere captivate fans at Fox and Hound - Bailey's, where the kitchen remains open as late as its neighboring fully stocked bar. Chefs cook until the wee hours of the morning and always until the bar closes, baking Bavarian pretzel starters, crafting towers of onion rings, and preparing hand-battered chicken tenders that are cooked until they are golden brown. They blend their own seasonings to sprinkle over grilled-to-order burgers, and draw from a diverse roster of cheeses and toppings to crown their wood-oven-inspired flatbreads.
While manning the bars, bartenders tap into a stash of libations, such as UV Whipped vodka and Patron Silver tequila, to mix their specialty cocktails. To further foster a sporting ambiance, high-definition TVs glow with sports games and custom music-video playlists, and guests partake in pastimes of ump bashing, billiards, or competitive people watching.
At Angelina's Fine Italian Dining, chef Bob Travlos whips up classic dishes inspired by New York City’s tradition of flavorful Italian cuisine. Toppings from pineapple to capicola ham grace five Neapolitan–style pizzas named after the Big Apple’s five boroughs. Chefs also stuff lasagna, ravioli, and ziti with homemade mozzarella and ricotta cheese. Lunches and dinners commence in Angelina’s spacious dining room, beneath a large-scale painting of the New York City skyline and the Brooklyn Bridge, which Al Smith famously constructed from leftover string cheese.
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.
Fun City's laser maze, go-kart racing, and other attractions are a siren's call to groups looking for safe, thrilling entertainment. At one of the Denver area's largest indoor entertainment centers, three and a half acres of attractions—including inflatables, laser tag, and a rock-climbing wall—invite kids to run wild. An in-house bowling alley with Crazy Cosmic Bowling on Friday and Saturday nights plays host to hundreds of frames nightly. The pinnacle of this mecca of fun is the three-story foam factory, which blasts, drops, and tosses foam balls for endless enjoyment. Once young ones tucker themselves out, an arcade with virtual driving games, air hockey, and skee-ball can grant a sedentary reprieve. Winnable arcade tickets can be redeemed for prizes such as bikes or stuffed animals. To help visitors refuel, Fun City's kitchen churns out specialty pizzas, burgers, and burritos as well as alcoholic drinks for adults, and their party packages combine it all with private rooms and discounts on game credits.
