Though Wheel Fun Rentals bicycle stables are scattered from sea to shining sea across the North American continent, the seeds of the enterprise were sown in Italy. On vacation in the late '80s, founder Brian McInerney discovered the four-wheeled Surrey cycle, a pedal-powered vehicle capable of carrying as many as six passengers. Before returning to the States, he made sure to pick up a full set of Surreys from the manufacturer, and a new chapter in his life began. Today, the business rents not only bikes and Surreys, but also multiple cycle-style mutants such as the three-wheeled Deuce Coupe and its cousin the Chopper. They even carry more advanced land vehicles such as electric cars and scooters. Kayaks, one-person pontoons, and stand-up paddle boards also unlock access to some of the country's wettest byways.
These days, showing up to the airport in anything other than a sleek, black sedan or SUV is like wearing a burlap sack to the mall. Thankfully, Pyramids Limousine is always available for stylish, convenient, and safe airport transportation. Trips take place within the luxurious confines of their fleet of shiny cars and velvet hot air balloons. Cars can be hailed 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and professional drivers are prompt, courteous, and fully licensed.
With a menu comprised only of two sections—'before tacos' and 'tacos'—T/aco's chef Matt Collier understands the power of the white-glove approach. In a recent interview, he divulged to Thrillist that each tortilla, like everything else on the restaurant's menu, is handmade. Harnessing a diverse culinary palette of fresh herbs and ingredients to craft bold flavors, Chef Matt and his team top their braised pork belly, Ahi tuna, and veggie tacos with such gourmet fixings as poblano crema, queso cotija, and chayote-squash salsa. To add a touch of diversity to their taco-heavy menu, they whip up fresh ceviches and guacamole with housemade chips. T/aco's bartenders have also honed an all-important craft. They mix smoky and fruity margaritas with 25 reposado, anejo, and blanco tequilas—one for each year an American must live before she can eat tacos in the US House of Representatives.
A ultra-luxury sedan rolls up to the curb. The driver steps to the side and opens the door for you. For you. "What's that?" you say. "You're here to take me away? Wherever I want?" He nods. But not a frustrated one?a smiling nod, one that indicates that you're the one in charge today. Perhaps he even gives you a thumbs-up. So you slide in. Look at all this. These aren't just power windows. These are practically bay windows?in a car. This seat is a recliner. You're lounging in a limo, watching a seat-mounted TV, conducting business in a mobile office, and pretending your tablet contains the nuclear codes.
This is one of the most high-end experiences offered by Everything Executive. The transportation company provides rides for jet-setting business travelers, vacationers, and average joes looking for a hassle-free trip to the airport or a glitzy way to arrive at a special event. Its sleek sedans and SUVs are often seen pulling up to airport terminals, while specialty luxury vans and the aforementioned rolling suites often deliver passengers to weekend mountain retreats.
The destination becomes second-fiddle thanks to 303PartyBus. The action begins the second the driver starts the engine of this 44-passenger party on wheels. Long, curving leather booths hug the walls of the bus with room for passengers to kick back in style, but there's also plenty of room to dance, and party lighting to set the mood as well as a standup bar to fuel the festivities. 303PartyBus's driver is sequestered from the rest by a partition, so the passengers can party in private and the driver remains undistracted as he steers the vehicle toward the destination. And even though the destination might be an afterthought, there are plenty of options: Broncos games, tailgate parties, brewery tours, bachelorette parties, and concerts at Red Rocks or the Fillmore.
Inspired by The Amazing Race, CityScape Adventures—held across the United States—entangle race participants in webs of 12 puzzles and challenges in citywide races to the finish line. Participants compete in teams of two, using their wits, teamwork, and underground network of mutant-turtle spies to complete the tasks given at the start of the race. The 12 challenges take the form of puzzles, riddles, and clues that guide treasure hunters to a specific location within the city, where each team must complete a special task using only their cleverness and muscles. Players can also use the Internet, and the winning team is usually the one that best leverages its resources. The first team to successfully complete all tasks and vault over the finish line will receive a prize and assembly line of high-fives.
