Operation Altitude is known for pushing the envelope, bringing together the best-of-the-best, creating the most memorable of events for their select clientele. A recent evening at The Infinite Monkey Theorem, Denver’s own “urban winery”, was no different. A private affair at an intimate locale, beautiful decor, delectable cuisine and a private lesson in what it takes to create unbelievable wines, made for one spectacular experience.

With the place to themselves, guests were treated to all the The Infinite Monkey Theorem had to offer. Cocktails were served in the thoughtfully appointed winery tap-room, highlighted by beautiful fall-themed centerpieces and decor from Plum Sage Flowers. An introduction from wine-maker and founder, Ben Parsons, related the rigors and successes this unique winery has experienced. Guests then were escorted to the winery where they could try their hand at creating their own blends.

The highlight of this amazing evening, however, had to be the fabulous wine-paired culinary adventure, created by the chefs of Red Maple Catering. Chef Jason and his professional and creative team kept the appreciate diners happy and anticipation was intense to see what magic each course would offer. It was a a memorable and intimate evening filled with new knowledge, experiences and fine food and drink.

GenFit & PawsCo workouts have gone to the dogs!

Some days it takes more than just a walk around the block, sniffing everything. Some days it is not enough to chase a ball. Some days you need someone to do more than just take you to the park. Some days you need to get your heart racing, muscles burning and and gasp for air with your best friend!

On a recent evening in Denver’s RINO District, a group of diehard fitness buffs and their four-legged friends joined up with the trainers from GenFit Gym to get their work-out on! Both human and canine participants pushed themselves to their limits to reach their fitness goals. As expected there were sprints, wall-sits, burpees, planks and the occasional nips and barks. In the end there were big smiles and a lot of panting. This workout had it all including an opportunity to meet some adoptable dogs from PawsCo.

A great opportunity to get out and play.

Operation Altitude creates a magical evening in Denver’s Union Station

Denver’s historic and newly-renovated Union Station served as a wonderful venue for a recent evening of culinary genius. The experience began with a cocktail on the upper terrace of the beautiful Terminal Bar followed by a comprehensive, private tour of the facility. Guests were then ushered to the Gallery Level for a very unique dining experience provided by Denver’s own Epicurean Group. This amazing experience, with every nuance thoughtfully considered and addressed, was orchestrated by Angie Vossler and Operation Altitude.

The set-up was immaculately, prepared by designer Jessica Stapp and her crew, with a warm and rustic, mountain, pure-Colorado feel. The dining experience, a Chef’s Dinner, in which each course was creatively finished by Epicurean’s “Innovation Chef” Jenna Johansen and her team in front of eagerly awaiting diners. At the introduction of each plated course, Chef Jenna described the offering with explanation of process that complimented her delicious creations.

The evening was very impressive, from setting to decor, presentation to every delectable dish and left the crowd in awe. Bravo Angie, Operation Altitude, Jenna, Jessica, Epicurean and Union Station for an evening these lucky few will not soon forget.

On the notorious date of April 20th or better know as 4/20, happy patrons and staff came together to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Denver’s Vine Street Pub.

Denver Dirt…..Clean-up, clinics, and big air at Barnum North Bike Park.

Last Saturday the Friends of Barnum North Bike Park hosted a coming out party for their young dirt jump park. Hordes of riders, families and fans from the local neighborhoods and beyond came together to celebrate the opportunity to enjoy this unique facility. The message was simple and clear; be a part of keeping the park a fun, safe and enjoyable place for anyone who wants to enjoy it.

Trestle Bike Skills Course at Barnum North Park is a Denver City park, located just west of  Federal on 8th Avenue. The park is managed by an all volunteer crew of hardy diggers led by Nick Soloninka. This crew works hard to play hard and took every advantage of the large crowd that came out Saturday to build new features and teach correct course maintenance and bike skills.

This event was about putting the community back into cycling.” -Nick Soloninka.

Hard work was not the only draw for this event. Free bike repairs were provided by Salvagetti Bicycle Workshop and demo bikes were available from COMBA, Colorado Mountain Bike Association. Groundwork Denver provided free helmets and gave away a bunch of bikes to lucky attendees. The fan favorite, however, had to be Vanessa and her delicious hot dogs that tasted awesome after some hard work in the dirt.

Once the work was done it was time to play and the crowd was not dissapointed. Kids got to learn the skills of the park’s pump track and many local pro riders, including Dominic Megalli, put on quite an air show, flipping and whipping and signing autographs. Not a bad party for a young park.
