First Take

Something like 300 new restaurants, diners, and pubs opened in metro Denver in 2014, "a dizzying array," writes 5280 Magazine's food editor Amanda Faison in the March 2015 cover story.  We met at one of the "Best 10," Cart-Driver in Denver's RiNo neighborhood, and shared the conversation on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

He calls himself an "OG," but that stands for "Organic Gardener," a vegan chef from the hood.  DJ Cavem has been turning heads by rooting his B-boy style in a "healthy living" message.  Ietef Vita (who goes by the handle "DJ Cavem Moetavation") and Alkemia Earth shared some of their story with "First Take with Lando and Chavis" at the 3rd annual Local Food Summit in Denver. 

Marijuana investment seminar in Denver

Mar 2, 2015

Colorado is still in the early days of its post-prohibition era, and the investment community is looking at the potential of marijuana stocks.  Khadijah Adams with the upcoming Marijuana Investment and Private Retreat visited "First Take with Lando and Chavis" to answer some frequently asked questions.

"Many seminars involve angel investments, and people who are looking for funding for their dispensary.  We are dealing with the education that marijuana stocks actually exist," said Adams.  

Written by Gerald Marks and Seymour Simmons in 1931, "All of Me" is one of the most recorded songs of its era. 

First performed by actress and singer Belle Baker over the radio, "All of Me" was also recorded in 1931 by star Ruth Etting. 

Notable covers include versions by Russ Columbo, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, Louis Armstrong, Benny Goodman, the Count Basie Orchestra, Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Dinah Washington and many more!

For the artists of the Colorado Ballet, their annual foray into what Balachine called "dance ballet" means an opportunity to show their talent beyond the classical canon, and show it they do.

For ballet lovers, this means that one need not book a trip to New York or San Francisco to experience exquisitely performed divertissements.
