  We  just went to Frijoles, Cuban Food in Lakewood CO.   My wife and I were headed to the grocery store when we saw a sign that said Cuban food.  We thought to our self’s Cuban food in Lakewood?   Sergio the owner put us right to work on some plantains.  It was at that moment we were sold.  I had a roast beef dish (I can’t remember the name.)  My wife also had a traditional Cuban dish that was a steak and fries. The family that owns the place was amazingly attentive.   We have been back to Frijoles numerous times now.  We always find something new on the menu and we bring our friends there whenever we want to show off a local gem. If you are in Lakewood and want to hit up some delicious Cuban food, head over to Frijoles.                                               12095 W Alameda, La...

The Nutcracker Ballet in Lakewood Ballet is a difficult art! Don’t let all that fluidity, emotion, and movement fool you; some of the feats these ballet dancers accomplish are not only physically demanding, but technically demanding as well. This time of year there is only one ballet that comes to mind: The Nutcracker. The Dawson Wallace Dance Project is performing the Nutcracker Ballet at the Lakewood Cultural Center throughout the rest of the season. Here are some things you may not know about this amazing the Ballet. The libretto was based on a short story by E.T.A Hoffman called “The Nutcracker and the Mouse King” The ballet itself was not very popular when it was originally performed, but the music by Tchaikovsky was. Tchaikovsky wrote the music near the end of his life and never k...

Bowling in Lakewood Bowling has been a popular, American pastime for decades. Although ancestors of this sport have been found in Egyptian, French, and Italian culture, the rules for the current 10-pin game were created in New York City in the late 1800’s. With the weather outside getting colder, I thought it would be a great time to list some of the bowling facilities in Lakewood. Brunswick Zone-Green Mountain 945 South Kipling Pkwy Lakewood, CO 80226 303-980-0300 Located on South Kipling, Brunswick Zone is a popular bowling chain in the Colorado area. This facility has 40 lanes, 2 billiard tables, Party and Event Rooms, Arcade Games, a Lounge, Snack Bar, and Pro Shop. Great for a casual game or to start a new league, Brunswick Zone is family fun!

Having a good title company makes for a smooth transaction. I have been a Realtor for 15 years and having a good, professional title company can make the difference between a difficult transaction and one that moves through like a sharp blade on smooth ice. I have two companies that I use regularly....depending on the location of the property for sale.  My last sale was a home in Denver, Co., and I used Fidelity National Title Company to handle the transaction.  From the time I got under contract to the passing of the keys, Fidelity was there to provide professional, timely and expert service.  A special thanks to Lin Furlong, my closer, who responded to all of my questions in a timely fashion.  A special thanks to all of her peers and support staff that supported me in my sometimes irr...

240 Union in Lakewood When you first glance at this restaurant you may be surprised that inside is an upbeat and upscale place! That is part of the charm of 240 Union. Located on Union near the St. Anthony's Medical Campus, 240 Union has a wonderfully knowledgeable, professional, and friendly staff. Most people who visit rave about the service! But what about the food? An eclectic mix of American favorites like pasta, pizza, chicken, beef and seafood, the dishes are fresh and delicious. Unlike grabbing a bowl of pasta or pizza from the chain-restaurants, 240 offers up dishes like the Mezzaluna Pasta with goat cheese scallion filling, and Kalamata black olive butter  or House Smoked Salmon Pizza with shaved red onion, capers, avocado, and crème fraiche. Open for Lunch and Dinner, make 2...

Thirsty?  When I first got my Nikon DSL camera, I did some experimenting of close-ups of a lemon slice.  I really liked how it turned out so I decided to revisit the subject.  This time, I sliced a lime and used a variety of backgrounds.  Photography is such a wonderful part of my life and I have incorporated some of my photos in a tour on my website.  I hope you might take a moment to visit and as always, your comments are very much appreciated. Your comments are appreciated

Courtesy of Chad's Grill Website. See the Menu Here! Chad's Grill in Lakewood Chad's Grill in the Green Mountain area of Lakewood serves up tastey, made from scratch, American food! It sounds simple and there are a lot of people who can make good burgers, sandwiches, steaks, and etc. However, Chad's food is great and no one who has visited in the last 29 years they have been open will tell you it is simple food. The Chad's twist on comfort food is a welcome change from the typical bar food found in most places. The added bonus at Chad's Grill is a wonderful staff that goes above and beyond! Located on Union, a few blocks South of 6th Ave, Chad's has become the place for an after work dinner, to meet up with friends to watch the game, or a place to host your next party! Daily specials ar...

Learn about Ghin Sushi Here! Ghin Asian Blend and Sushi in Lakewood Sushi is one of those foods that leave you feeling healthy and refreshed! Ghin Asian Blend and Sushi in Lakewood is by far the best sushi in the Denver Metro area! Seems like a big claim, but once you stop by you will believe too. Located a few blocks South of 6th Ave on Union, Ghin Asian Blend and Sushi states their food is NOT Asian Fusion! Asian blend is " a union of flavors, textures, and colors that have a natural affinity for one another." This beautiful description of the food means that each bite is a balance of something unique and subtle; it's about the taste. The restaurant is named "Ghin", which is the Thai word for taste. Ghin Sushi does not just stop at the taste, however. The chefs are artisans; crafting ...

The Belmar Neighborhood in Lakewood The Belmar neighborhood in Lakewood is one of the new living, working, shopping and dinning communities in Colorado. The great thing about these areas is they are built to resemble the older, downtown communities by having everything you need conveniently located nearby. The living spaces range from one-bedroom loft-style flats, five-bedroom rowhomes, live/work units and everything in-between. Only 5 minutes to downtown, 30 to DTC, and around 50 to the airport, these homes are great if you love to entertain. Spacious, convenient, and modern, stop by one of the markets on your way or meet up with friends at one of the many restaurants. Parents in for the weekend? Belmar has bowling, movies, and events year round. With the weather getting colder, Belmar...
