Elevate Chiropractic stands to remind us, we are all people first…

Our hope for the Abilities 5K on Oct. 6 is to bring awareness in highlighting the amazing ABILITIES of this population. Since becoming a doctor and specifically focusing on the nervous system, Dr. Daniel Wallis has noticed that many individuals with disabilities are under-served, under-appreciated and often times over-medicated, leading to many challenges. Our hope through this 5K is to bring awareness in highlighting the amazing ABILITIES of this population. Read more>

Gilded Goat Brewing Company Wins Gold at GABF

Gilded Goat Brewing Company is a family-owned brewery that is a complimentary blend of art and science. Their head brewer, Charlie Hoxmeier, was in fact studying for a PhD in Microbiology when he began experimenting with all the different iterations of home brewing, from brewing on the kitchen stove with extract to building a 3-vessel mini-brewhouse in the garage. Combined with Colorado water and fresh and innovative ingredients, their small batch approach led to some amazing beers with simple pleasures of quality, color, and flavor. With all the hard work that goes into opening a new brewery, they have recently received one of the largest awards in the brewing industry with their monumental Gold Medal win for their Guten Bock at last weekend’s Great American Beer Festival.

  1. You should also note that this restaurant celebrates it’s racist 1930 time period where they proudly displayed a sign that said “No Mexicans, No Dogs” on the front of the building. My grandfather and other local Latinos were discriminated against and thrown out of this establishment. To this day they still remember how they were treated here. After recently asking for an apology from the restaurant while they celebrated an era where they treated their community members with blatant disrespect, they chose to ignore us and yet again turned us away. This restaurant has not, is not, nor ever will be welcoming to its local minority community!
