In-N-Out Burger still 2 years away from opening first Colorado location — The Know

In this June 8, 2010 photo, In-N-Out Burger signs, two in the foreground from the fast food chain’s original location, and one in the background at a new location across the Interstate 10 freeway, fill the skyline in Baldwin Park, Calif.

The Double-Double isn’t here yet — but details of an animal-style entrance into Colorado are coming into focus.

In-N-Out Burger — which riled up local foodies late last year when it announced it was coming to the state — is still roughly two years away from serving its first legendary burger and fries in Colorado, said Carl Arena, the chain’s vice president of real estate and development.

The California-based chain will make its long-awaited splash in Colorado Springs in the summer of 2020, by way of a 100,000-square-foot distribution facility and a 150,000-square-foot office building — complete with a helipad, according to documents recently submitted to the city.

The first Colorado restaurant will open…

Budweiser Clydesdales coming to Colorado Capitol Monday — The Know

DENVER — The Budweiser Clydesdales are visiting the Colorado Capitol on Monday to celebrate the repeal of the state’s Prohibition-era beer laws.

Eight horses will be hitched to the red beer wagon near the west steps of the statehouse at 2 p.m. Monday to celebrate how, on Jan. 1., the prohibition-era beer law that prevented the sale of beer greater than 3.2 percent alcohol by weight in most Colorado grocery and convenience stores will dissolve.

In 2016, the Colorado General assembly passed SB-197, which paved the way to expand ownership of liquor licenses. Part of that bill also stipulated that 3.2 beer would be phased out on Jan. 1, 2019. This year, the legislature followed up with a b…

Denver’s 2019 art scene is gonna be big. Here’s what to see and when to see it.

There’s a lot of art to see in 2019, and some of it is already waiting to view, thanks to the wildly popular House of Dior retrospective, still packing them in at the Denver Art Museum (through March 3), and the informative “A Daughter’s Eye/A Daughter’s Voice” at the Clyfford Still Museum (curated by his daughter, Sandra, and running until Jan. 13).

But the good things don’t end there. The Colorado Photographic Arts Center unveils its promising “Personal Visions,” on Jan. 10, featuring the work of five Denver military veterans; the MCA hosts a solo of “carved paintings” from Colorado artist Andrew Jensdotter, beginning  Feb. 14;  and this March will see the return of the sprawling Month of Photography, which fills dozens of venues with the work of artists near and far.

It’s gonna be a big 2019, sometimes very big, and it will be interes…

The most sought out Netflix show in every state

In this Friday, Jan. 17, 2014, file photo, a person displays Netflix on a tablet in North Andover, Mass. (Elise Amendola, Associated Press file)

One of the core assumptions about Netflix is that, thanks to its popularity and ubiquity, the service can blur boundaries. From Nashua, New Hampshire, to Newport Beach, California, Seattle to Sarasota, Florida, we’re all watching the same thing. (And that thing, it seems, is “The Crown.”)

Except it turns out we’re not.

A researcher in Salt Lake City named Victoria Merinda has compiled the most searched-for Netflix shows in the country over this past year and proceeded to break them down by state. And it turns out, Americans are interested in very different shows depending on where they live.

To wit: No single series captured the top ranking in even one-fifth of states.

Equally surprising, 12 states — essentially a quarter of the country — had a favorite show that no other state had. Whe…

Hiking safety and popular trails outside Rocky Mountain National Park

With Rocky Mountain National Park still operating at limited capacity since the partial government shutdown began last week, hikers are advised to use extreme caution if they choose to head into the park due to the limited services that are available to them.

“Any entry to the park during this period of federal government shutdown is at the visitor’s sole risk,” said Rocky Mountain National Park Public Information Officer Kyle Patterson in a statement following the shutdown.

Park personnel will not be able to provide hikers with assistance or guidance, and there will be little to no emergency services available to them until the shutdown is lifted.

Tommy Caldwell, who free-climbed El Capitan, opening Winter Words series in Aspen

After his historic free-climb ascent of the El Capitan’s Dawn Wall in Yosemite National Park in early 2015, Tommy Caldwell stared down a nearly as daunting challenge: a blank page.

To write his memoir, published last year as “The Push,” Caldwell used the same tools he’d used as a climber to revolutionize his sport and accomplish the seemingly impossible.

“With climbing, I’m not super naturally talented physically and I’m kind of in the same boat intellectually,” Caldwell, who will open the Winter Words author series Jan. 8, said in a recent phone interview from his home in Boulder. “I always struggled as a student. But I have this ability to apply pretty incredi…

Boulder’s annual polar plunge — The Know

Dressed in a polar bear costume, Clint Mills surveyed the shores of Boulder Reservoir on a chilly 7-degree day.

“In my professional polar bear opinion,” Mills said, “this is perfect plunging conditions.”

About 200 folks apparently had the same thought as Mills, as they braved the cold to ring in 2019 by running into the waters of Boulder Reservoir for the annual Polar Plunge.

Mills is actually from Texas, and he and a group of friends — all dressed in matching polar bear costumes — go to a different polar plunge around the country every New Year’s Day.

“We thought it would be a one-time thing,” Mills said. “But we keep getting new recruits.”

Skiing is cheap in January during “Learn to Ski and Snowboard Month”

A skier heads down the High Noon run on opening day at Arapahoe Basin ski area on Oct. 19. (Andy Cross, The Denver Post)

It was a cold and stormy night atop Eldora’s Bunnyfair and my 3-year-old self was throwing a major hissy fit.

Tears streaming down my cheeks, I was berating my parents for bringing me there, the forces that created the terrifying slope before me and the dark night sky for being unsympathetic to my fate.

“I HATE skiing! I never want to go again! I want to go home!” I declared before taking off my skis, throwing them to the snow and stomping off down the run.

Flash forward about 40 years and I found myself cajoling my own children down the slopes, trying to convince them that going out in the cold in uncomfortable footwear to learn a challenging new skill would ultimately be fun — in my opinion, the most fun to be had.

Because it’s difficult to convey the many pleasures of the sport, January is “Learn to Ski and…

Why ice skating isn’t allowed on Greeley, Windsor lakes — The Know

Ice skating on Kern Reservoir, now known as Windsor Lake, 1915. (Town of Windsor Museum, Permanent Collection via Greeley Tribune)

Although someone tried to prove otherwise Saturday, Andy McRoberts, director of Culture, Parks and Recreation Department said none of the city of Greeley’s lakes or ponds can support ice skating.

Someone appeared to have fallen through the ice on the Greeley West Park’s pond Saturday morning, when fire crews found tracks leading to and from a hole in the ice.

Although weather is just one of the factors that go into the formation of ice, officials said it hasn’t been cold enough lately to freeze ponds and lakes in the area, although Monday could be the exception, with the temperature dropping throughout the day.

In Greeley, the city’s ponds and lakes are aerated, McRoberts said, with air pumped into them to keep down algae, microbe and bacteria buildup. The air also allows for a healthy environment for fish …
