Mawa’s Kitchen, Aspen

Mawa’s Kitchen, Aspen

They say that the key to big success is not just simple luck or hard work alone; it is a combination of the two. When opportunity knocks, one must be ready to dive in head first and see where the winds lead. Just ask Aspen chef and entrepreneur Mawa McQueen, owner of Mawa’s Kitchen. They say that the key to big success is not just simple luck or hard work alone; it is a combination of the two. When opportunity knocks, one must be ready to dive in head first and see where the winds lead. Just ask Aspen chef and entrepreneur Mawa McQueen. “I was born in Africa, in Ivory Coast, which was a French colony. My family moved to France when I was younger, but I didn’t really connect with the culture there,” McQueen recalls. “I saw women on TV who looked more like me, and they were all African-American, not African-French. So I told my family I had a dream to go to America, and I...

Taco Del Gnar – Gnar’licious!

Taco Del Gnar – Gnar’licious!

Please be warned, the taco you are about to experience is addicting, and you will want more, and you will plan your trip around the ability to get in on time to have one, two or five of these gnar’licious menu selections at Taco Del Gnar. I was on my way with a friend to The Ride Festival this past summer when, on our final ascent to Telluride, my friend Ali announced in Ridgway that we MUST stop for a Taco. I had grabbed a quick bite in Gunnison and was still a bit full but she said that I had to have at least one taco, I would not regret it. She’s a vegetarian and I was a little perplexed about the “Taco” she was most interested in, but as we pushed through the front door she announced,”The Avo, you must have the Avo.” What?   As we burst through the front door I noticed this was not your average taco shop. This was a cool flavor infused...

The Riviera Supper Club in Glenwood Springs Sings a New Song

The Riviera Supper Club in Glenwood Springs Sings a New Song

If you’ve ever driven west on I-70 at night, you know that winding through the dark and cavernous depths of Glenwood Canyon can feel like quite a feat. As you exit the other side and perhaps breathe a sigh of relief, Glenwood Springs appears as something like a mirage heralding your return to civilization. Coming into town, you will immediately notice the glow of a great local icon beckoning from the roadside: the dazzling neon sign of the Riviera Supper Club. Curious travelers and devoted locals alike have patronized the Riviera Supper Club for nearly seven decades. Although “The Riv” has changed hands many times and seen umpteen renovations since it opened its doors in 1947, the establishment has been a mainstay along the Glenwood Springs riverfront for as long as most locals can remember.
