  • Making the skies more friendly

    The sometimes-bumpy terrain of air travel can pose a variety of challenges, especially for the young and the old.
    But former flight attendant Patty Petersen of Conifer has addressed the need for some helpful aerial shepherding with her business, From Air to There.

  • Bistro Colorado features field-to-table cuisine

    The owner of Bistro Colorado is confident the restaurant is here to stay, believing that the fourth time is the charm for the location in North Evergreen.

    The French bistro-style café on Bergen Parkway next to the Wood Cellar Bar and Grill opened earlier this month. Three restaurants have come and gone in that spot: Blue Spruce Market, Overseas Café and Suzie’s Café.

  • Conifer cash mob floods Evergreen businesses

    A mob from Conifer attacked downtown Evergreen on Oct. 8 — a "cash mob."

    Borrowing from the spontaneous event known as a "flash mob," when groups dance in public places, a cash mob descends on local businesses to boost their revenues. In this case, a mob from Conifer made up for losses sustained during September’s flooding.

  • Cleanup moving along at Cactus Jack’s

    There’s a whirlwind of activity at Cactus Jack’s Saloon as the owners and employees work to rebuild the landmark business at the corner of Highway 74/73 in downtown Evergreen.

    The remnants of the deck that was demolished by the flooding caused by a week of incessant rains will be lifted out by a crane this week.

    The old floor has been removed, and an electrician and plumber were expected early this week to make sure everything is working before inspections can take place.

  • Prague coming to Evergreen — the café, that is

    Evergreen is getting a new restaurant downtown called Prague, which will be a smaller version of the popular Café Prague in Morrison.

    Set to open in mid-October, Prague will serve lunch and dinner, said Tomas Stibral, who owns both restaurants with his wife, Yvona. It will be at the corner of Main Street and Forest Hill Road in a building that once was a dry cleaner and a hardware store.

    The restaurant will seat about 50 people with another 30 seats on the patio, a size he called perfect.

  • Smiling Moose smiling even wider in new location

    The Smiling Moose Deli has moved to a larger location in the log building off Evergreen Parkway in the El Rancho area.

    The sandwich shop has been near Interstate 70 since March 2008, and it had simply outgrown its space, said owner Derek Dodds.

    “It’s in bigger space and gave us a better opportunity,” Dodds said.

    The new restaurant at 908 Nob Hill Road has doubled the number of seats in its dining area, which was a big impetus to move, he said, plus the larger space has allowed the restaurant to add a create-your-own-salad offering.

  • Europe comes to Marshdale

    The new owners of a bakery in Marshdale want it to have a local European pastry shop feel.

    The Village Patisserie at 6947 County Highway 73, owned by David and Sara Knight, offers a selection of delectable treats, jellies and jams — and homemade ice cream on Sundays — plus a smattering of local artwork. Decorated cakes from the elegant to the unusual also can be ordered.

    The shop is open Wednesday through Sunday. Saturday is bread-baking day, and on Sundays everything in the display case is 50 percent off.

  • Skin treatments available at Aesthetic Lounge

    The Aesthetic Lounge in Evergreen is all about skin.
    Colorado is a place where sun and wind can wreak havoc on skin, and The Aesthetic Lounge can help minimize the damage and make people look more youthful.
    Owner Leigh Ann Jordan said everything done at the shop is medical grade, and in addition to the typical injectables and facial treatments, it also does what she calls odd things such as laser treatments for foot fungus.

  • BUSINESS BEAT: Menchie’s no stranger to community support

    If you participated in Evergreen’s Freedom Run on July 4th, chances are you received a goody bag at the end of the race, including a coupon for Menchie’s in Bergen Village.
    In addition, on that day, Menchie’s donated 15 percent of its sales to Mt. Evans Home Health and Hospice.

  • BUSINESS BEAT: Bike, ski store races into Bergen Park

    Bike and ski racers now have a place in Bergen Park to buy their equipment.

    A Culture of Speed closed its doors in Dumont and opened a shop just east of the Whippletree at 1342 County Road 65. The shop operates in the front of the building, while JR’s Landscaping operates in the back.

    Owner Harry Rhulen, who lives in Soda Creek, said the move to Bergen Park was a no-brainer.
