About Jennifer Fowler

She drinks nothing but the finest of craft spirits. So think twice before you slide that cocktail glass filled with vanilla vodka in front of her. This lady likes her cocktails brown, bitter, and stirred.

A Wagon Birthday Whodunit

Irony of all ironies, my Wagon ridiculousness doesn’t involve me being drunk. But it does involve some Hangover-style antics by a few complete strangers. It begins as Star Bar closes down after an epic birthday party on Saturday night, well really Sunday morning. But where is my jacket/wallet/phone/keys? Some motherfucker stole them. Monika’s too. Damn […]

12 Days of a Wagon Christmakwanzakah

By now, you’ve seen a million emails and TV commercials touting the 12 Days of Christmas in order to get you to open your wallet. Per Wikipedia, “the lyrics of The Twelve Days of Christmas may have no meaning at all. Its meaning, if it has any, has yet to be satisfactorily explained.” Reminiscing about our crazy […]

It’s all in the name – CRAVE

“Welcome to Crave, would you like a glass of Veuve Clicquot?” With that opening line, we were ushered into Crave, a new dessert bar & lounge located at the corner of 14th and Champa, in the Spire building.  I mentally pinched myself, giggling inside at the thought sipping on premium champagne as I skipped up to […]

Head over to Row 14 on Sunday and you’ll get to watch the Bronocs vs Raiders game, enjoy some amazing food and libations, and support the University of Colorado Cancer Center. Let’s replace Tebowing with barbecuing.. so tuck that napkin into your shirt, […]

What’s all the HUSH about?

Blackbelly – at first blush, an odd name for a catering company, so I asked about the origin. Blackbelly sheep are native to Barbados, have a distinctive black stripe of fur on their bellies, and are considered a culinary delicacy, signifying the best of the best. Blackbelly Catering is a new venture between Chef Hosea […]

Now they’re taking it to the next level and collaborating with Oskar Blues on their own beer. Don’t miss this […]

Prohibition: your upscale London pub, imported to Colfax

When I first moved to Denver, I abided by the standard rule to avoid Colfax. Thankfully, I made friends who re-educated me about the cooler side of Colfax. Prohibition, located at 504 E. Colfax, is the latest addition to these eclectic bars that offer unpretentious, neighborly places to escape and just have a drink (or […]

Crooked Stave and Euclid Hall pour the way to Spring

An afternoon release party for a beer collaboration between a beer geek who wrote a dissertation on yeast strains, the only front-of-house Level 2 cicerone in Colorado, and one of my favorite beer-drinking locales in Denver? Clear my calendar – it’s a “work from home” kind of day.   All who attended the release of […]
