Meet the Team
There’s a lot to love about Denver. Go ahead and try to define our city. Is it an oil-rich cowtown? A tech-friendly ecotopia? More likely it’s something entirely its own, changing before our very eyes. Every day, you’ll hear from the team highlighting what makes this beautiful, complex city we call home just a little bit better.
Someone from my city you should know:
Phillip “Phil The Fan” Hamon III, who was the greatest fan of the Denver music scene till he passed in 2011.
Let’s eat here:
Benny Blanco’s in Cap Hill for pizza, and not just because they always indulge my outside-the-box topping requests.
Best book or movie about my city:
Manuel Ramos’ “Desperado: A Mile High Noir.” You won’t walk down 32nd Avenue the same way ever again.
A place in my city not enough people know about:
Twist and Shout records. It’s not only a great place to shop for all your music needs, it also features amazing displays of memorabilia including vintage posters.
We do this better than any other city:
A style that says, “I’m a cool, rugged mountain-goer AND a hip, urban professional” at the same time.
The tourist trap that’s actually great:
Casa Bonita. Yes, it’s real, and yes, it’s everything South Park promised it would be.
