The Scene

My Life as a Loser

Someone in my house was always on a diet when I was growing up. Sometimes it was my older and younger sisters who followed various diets, and sometimes it was my older and younger brothers.

National: Waiting on a Friend

  If we’ve learned one thing over the past year, we can probably all agree, it’s the value of delivery. Stuck at home and hungry, we placed 500 percent more Instacart orders than we had before the plague, and we paid DoorDash, Uber Eats, Grubhub, and Postmates $5.5 billion in combined revenue to bring us doughnuts, dumplings, and...

Keep Mushrooms Weird

Lion’s Mane in RiNo is the nation’s only brick-and-mortar shop catering to fungi cultivators and mycologists. You never know who might walk through the door at Lion’s Mane in Denver’s RiNo neighborhood on any given day—a nerd perfecting her grain spawn or a newbie buying his first pressure sterilizer, a maker growing lobster mushrooms for red dye or...

Zen and the Art of Apple Pie

Become one with the dough and bring a taste of flaky bliss to the table. First, there is that apple-cinnamon/caramel steam that grabs you by the nose. Then you see the whole pie emerge from the oven and, finally, a warm apple pie wedge whose juices mingle the melting vanilla bean gelato. You take a bite and smile,...

Stick it Where? Cannabis Suppositories

Cannabis suppositories offer relief and comfort. As a cannabis writer living in Humboldt, CA, I don’t shy away from trying new things. CBD eye cream? Sure! Sea salt caramels with a micro-dose of THC? Obviously! So when it came time to try cannabis suppositories, I didn’t blink. A firm believer in the power of plants, I’ve made my...

A Stuffing Tale: The Best Stuffing Ever

Diversity rules the side dishes that fill our feast table. I was well into high school before I got an inkling that lasagna was not a traditional Thanksgiving side dish and that turkey stuffing usually involved cubed bread.
