The whirling blenders of Keva Juice pulp fresh fruit and nutritive mix-ins into a menu of creamy smoothies, served alongside hot stuffed pretzels and low-fat frozen yogurt. Regular smoothies ($4.27 for 24 oz.) satisfy sweet cravings with toothsome blends such as All That Razz––an amalgam of raspberry juice, orange sherbet, banana, and strawberries. The Peach Treaty, named after the critical agreement that ended the Seven Pears' War, coddles taste buds peach juice, banana, orange sherbet, and peaches. Each smoothie comes with one free Energizer mix-in, including choices for protein and vitamins ($0.75 each for additional mix-ins). Add a sleep-stopping infusion of Red Bull ($1.25) to any drink, or boost your beverage's nutritional value with whey protein, granola, or soy milk ($1.50). Savory snacks materialize in the form of gooey stuffed pretzels ($3.27), their chewy dough hiding such fillings as cheddar jalapeño and pizza. Frozen yogurt topped with succulent blackberries, crumbled Oreos, or a spritz of all-natural oxygen cools piping-hot palates as it infuses the digestive system with helpful probiotics.
Featured on A&E’s America’s Castles, the three-story Rosemount Manor was designed by notable New York architect Henry Hudson Holly and completed in 1893, then served as the wealthy Thatcher family’s 24,000-square-foot residence for 75 years. Genial museum guides take guests of all ages on a one-hour tour through this 37-room chateau, passing along interesting architectural tidbits, such as the fact Rosemount is constructed entirely of pink rhyolite stones from a nearby quarry. Marvel at the museum’s preeminent decorative details, such as the custom paneling, coffered ceilings, maple and mahogany woodwork, antique furniture, stained-glass displays, Tiffany chandeliers, a primitive 19th-century video-game console, and a grand oak staircase.
Pueblo Zoo originates in three places, all within the city of Pueblo. At the start of the 20th century, three parks around the town displayed a menagerie of exotic animals, but during the 1920s, the zoo consolidated in the current 25-acre City Park location. The space gradually improved throughout the Great Depression as the Works Progress Administration added an animal house, tropical birdhouse, and bear pits. Now open year-round, the zoo houses its 120 different species in modern facilities, allowing visitors to peer at boa constrictors in the rainforest exhibit or watch penguins dive from an underwater viewing room. Favorite animals on display include playful otters and penguins as well as the majestic african lion.
Eschewing traditional race rules and methods, Dirty Dashers must overcome a slew of mud-slicked obstacles, including mucky climbing hills, crawling pipes, slip 'n slides, and bear hugs from Pigpen. Organizers encourage runners to sign up with friends to foster a fun-loving environment, and along the way, racers fuel up at optional beer- or root-beer-chugging stations. Further demonstrating its commitment to outdoor high jinks, each event's registration fees, donations, water-balloon sales, and shoe donations benefit local charities, such as NM[X]—an arts and athletics youth organization—and the Seattle-based Redeeming Soles charity, which dispenses gently used footwear to those in need.
