Straddling the border between Wyoming and Colorado, Two Chicks Paintball's unpredictable terrain throws obstacles and tactical diversions at players. Recreational soldiers carrying the field’s rented Tippmann markers can maneuver through the trees and hide in forested fields as they strategize attacks and retreats. They can take cover behind looming boulders, which protect from opponents' quick spray of paint and give shooters a chance to catch their breath or recite their favorite inspirational movie monologue to their team before advancing. At the range’s speed-ball field, players can engage in short stints of fast-paced warfare before retreating to the picnic area to refuel their stomachs. For those who arrive unequipped, all the accouterments are available for rent, including paintball guns, safety gear, supplies, and camouflage jumpsuits.

It took Vincent Van Gogh years to complete his masterpieces, but students at Vino and VanCo classes only need a few hours. After fueling up on appetizers and drinks at Bondi Beach Bar & Grill, the class's pupils head over to Old Town Square. There, canvases, easels, and paints all await alongside that night's Van Gogh image, which the class recreates with the help of an expert instructor.
While Vino and VanCo students reproduce a renowned genius's work, most classes at VanCo School of Art are geared toward helping future masters refine their own pieces. Instructors train students of all ages in essential techniques, such as rendering semi-clothed models with materials like oil paint or charcoal still smoky from the grill. VanCo additionally caters classes to homeschooled pupils, as well as high school students readying their portfolio for college admissions.
True to its name, Feisty Spirits' logo is a winking specter. This image emblazons every barrel of the distillery's aged whiskey, its winking visage hinting at the mischief and wonder inside. For there's a sense of playful experimentation that goes into crafting the flavor profile for each drink. The flagship bourbon, for example, is subtly nutty and earthy, while the cinnamon whiskey uses only a dash of the aromatic spice, which makes for a sweet finish and prevents you from roaring flames after every sip. Guests can see how these creations are made from the tasting room, where a window peers right into the distilling area. Here, ingredients boil and condense in a large, shining still.
Ten Bears Winery produces smooth, handcrafted wines through a fermentation process that involves french-oak aging and an exclusive winter-hibernation technique. To begin, the facility’s winemaker hand-selects the finest grapes available, and by the time those grapes reach the bottling line, they’ve been transformed into easy-to-drink, well-balanced Colorado wines, many of which populate the shelves at local retailers. For a more personalized wine-drinking experience, Ten Bears also offers private tastings and a custom labeling service that adorns bottles with company logos, pictures, and personal pager numbers.
