Dog day afternoon

For the rabid (sorry) dog lover in your life, Denver’s boutique Hotel Monaco is offering the ultimate in state-cationing. From Aug. 23-26, the downtown hotelier, located smack dab in the middle of all the big city action, is offering its Puppy and Prosecco package.

That’s right – a gaggle of adorable puppies and a bottle of Italian bubbly will be unleashed directly in your room for an hour of unbridled puppy love.

Down girl.

Of course, the cost of all this bubbly rollicking goodness is not cheap: $550. But 50 percent of the cost will be donated to Denver-based animal rescue organization, Lifeline Puppy Rescue, which incidentally is also supplying the puppies and will be on hand to address any urgent puppy matters. And, in case the prosecco goes straight to your head, all puppies will be available for adoption (please just don’t take them home in your suitcase.)

According to Lifeline’s Scott Cramer, the promotion is a win-win, not only raising money for the nonprofit but also helping to socialize the pups.

The event, which is being held in conjunction with National Dog Day (Aug. 26) is just a natural extension of the hotel’s open doggy-door policy. Pets of hotel guests – and puppies from Lifeline – already regularly attend the hotel’s happy hour and are rumored to be way better trained than some of the humans.

Just like video killed the radio star, social media has put a hurtin’ on Silverton’s spectacular Ice Lakes Trail. One of the most popular – and most FBed and Insta-ed – trails in the San Juan Mountains, Ice Lakes is seeing even more unprecedented numbers of visitors this summer with the pandemic.

Not your dad's jorts

Leave it to the folks in Aspen to elevate even the lowliest of mountain wear to new fashion heights. Take the humble jort, a staple on local trails since, well, at least Chad Cheeney moved here in the ’90s. Introducing the world’s first “action sport jort,” made with technical fabric to bring that “I-give-zero-effs” attitude to any outdoor adventure while supplying that all important stretch and secret anti-chafing properties to the underside.
