The most excellent burrito slingers of all!

However, to explain Illegal Pete’s as simply a burrito joint would be a gross understatement. They have a knack for being involved with more music, comedy, and hooliganism than any other business in Colorado. They even give free meals to bands when they visit Colorado. Check out one of their six locations.

Huckleberry Roasters is a local favorite!

The coffee shop has always been a place where deep relationships are made. Whether those connections are created through regular chats with a barista, conversations with friends, or taking a few moments to ourselves to slow down, the coffee shop is about everyday community.

Founders, Koan and Mark, met in Denver, Colorado in late 2006; one as barista, one as customer. They shared a bond over their love of music, and eventually found themselves working together at the same coffee shop. Over time, a vibrant group of friends formed around them—musicians, artists, and fellow coffee enthusiasts.
