Among the delicacies featured at this year's Live at the Vineyards event on August 13 is a sweet-and-spicy offering from the new "unconventional" Chinese restaurant in the Lowry restaurant district, Lucky Cat.  "General Guard Chicken" featured natural orange flavors and a couple of pepper treatments: arbol and the southeast Asian chili relish sambal.  The recipe from Lucky Cat executive chef Troy Guard is posted below.

It took literally months for this interview to make on the air during the jazz morning show on KUVO, "First Take with Lando and Chavis."  I carried the book for weeks and weeks, wanting the perfect inspiration that would match the exploding creative potential within the pages of "The Steal Like An Artist Journal," the companion to the best-selling book by Austin Kleon ("a writer who draws").

On June 22nd we combined National Bike to Work Day with the "Eats & Beats" segment by having cycling nutritionist Dr. Allen Lim from Skratch Labs on "First Take with Lando and Chavis."

Colorado is one of the most accessible states in the union, says Rachel Stafford, with the Rocky Mountain ADA Center.  She joined the KUVO morning show "First Take with Lando and Chavis" from the National ADA Symposium in downtown Denver.

"We're (also) happy to report the City and County of Denver is top notch in terms of accessibility."

In a bag or in a box, summertime wine in Colorado's parks and outdoor concert venues do not involve glass bottles.  Carolyn Joy from Joy Wine & Spirits comes to the rescue with an array of varietals, vintages and accessories for the June edition of KUVO's Wine and Food Pairing on the morning show "First Take with Lando and Chavis."
