Sweet Coloradough – Glenwood Springs

Posted by on May 17, 2016 in Restaurant Reviews | 0 comments

Life, liberty, and the pursuit of fried dough. Isn’t there something in the Declaration of Independence about that? If not, there should be. After all, happiness for many often does indeed equate roughly to the sweet, warm and freshly fried Great American Doughnut–or some variation thereof. Talk about unalienable rights. It comes as no surprise then that Sweet Coloradough, the Roaring Fork Valley’s one and only doughnut shop, skyrocketed to local fame after opening in Glenwood Springs in May 2014. With doughnuts of the classic and cake varieties produced daily in a kaleidoscope of colors and flavors, it’s no wonder that the shop has cultivated a beloved presence in...

Inspiring Architect: Suzanne Marie Allen

Posted by on May 12, 2016 in MTN Town Magazine, Homes and Realty | 0 comments

The idea of designing your own home, it seems so romantic. A house to most of us is more than a structure. It is a place to shelter our loved ones, a place to retreat to when we’re tired and worn, to entertain or relax. The idea of creating the space you will live in has a lot of appeal and in order to really make it a functional living space that meets today’s building codes the average person usually needs assistance as they lack the skills necessary to design and create specific plans. In steps the architect. We spoke with Suzanne Marie Allen of Allen Guerra Architecture one...
