  • Not everyone can see beauty in a stack of weather-beaten, sun-bleached wood. But in the hands of Tommy Banaszek and Jeanne Sullivan, salvaged wood turns over a new leaf and is transformed into handmade furniture.
    KnoT New WooD, located in Kittredge at 26030 Highway 74, is the brainchild of Banaszek and Sullivan, who created the business to showcase wood repurposed into elegant, rustic or highly polished custom designs.

  • Ever wonder why Thanksgiving dinner with the family can be so hilarious — or stressful? Bring together disparate personalities with all of their eccentricities. Add a dash of conversation. Throw in a controversial topic or two, and you have the makings of a family feast failure — or farce, depending on how you look at it. Now imagine that you’ve selected the diners yourself. Replace crazy Aunt Margaret with an astronaut who has a nervous tick or Grandpa Joe with a go-go dancer who wants to be the president. Now you have the makings of an Epic evening.

  • The sponsors of the Tutankhamun exhibit at the Denver Art Museum are offering a special ticket deal to members of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District, which includes Jefferson and six other counties.
