here’s so much to love about summertime in our great state, it has us all wishing we could find Hermione Granger’s time turner. How else could we make it to all the not-to-miss concerts, or find enough days for the miles and miles of trail adventures? How else could we make the most of the eclectic markets and festivals dotting the state, or the delicious dishes produced by the eateries big and small within our very own county? It can be overwhelming. Take a deep breath. In lieu of time travel, we’ve done some hard investigative work for you, culling the

Firefly: The ultimate indie craft market
Local vendors build connection through art, food and other homemade goods.
ew craft fairs can compete with the selection, quality and craftsmanship found at the largest handmade-only market on the Front Range. The Firefly Handmade Marketplace caters to locals who are passionate about high-quality, small-batch goods, inspired by simplicity and mountain living. “Our mission is to cultivate a passionate community of artisans and art lovers, rooted in creativity, quality and individuality,” says Beth Pomerantz, owner, operator and “curator-inchief” of Firefly Handmade Markets, which she founded almost 10 years ago. As the head of a small, woman-owned creative business, Pomerantz strives to support other creative businesses. “Firefly Handmade creates the ultimate indie craft market,” she says. The Spring Market, which ran mid-May on Boulder’s Twenty Ninth Street mall, boasted over 100 carefully selected artisans, musicians and delicious options for foodies. Like the summer and fall markets, colorful, eye-catching booths display art, home goods, clothing, ceramics, paper goods, pet goods, artisanal food, jewelry
FIREFLY HANDMADE MARKETPLACE showcases more than 100 artisans at each of their markets throughout the year.

and more. Returning visitors to the market might even recognize some familiar faces. Alison Stern, owner and creator of Alison Blair Studio, is one of those familiar faces. She’s been selling her jewelry at the Firefly Market for multiple seasons, despite the fact that she says she had no artistic talent growing up. “I got involved in jewelry by accident,” Stern says. Through her love of working with her hands, she learned knotting and beading techniques for over 15 years until she discovered her passion for a new medium. “I had never
so much as seen a torch. I took a couple classes and the rest is history.” Today, you can find Stern spending most of her time developing her Midnight Collection of oxidized sterling silver with gemstone accents or making custom pet key rings that feature one’s breed of choice, from golden retrievers to French bulldogs. Finding that special gift for the person who already has everything is what the market is all about, says Jen Mabbett, owner and creator at Let’s Go for a Ride. Mabbett specializes in crafting unique dolls, cozy turtle pillows and I
precious star-shaped wands. Her journey with Firefly Handmade began with a request from one of her two sons for a turtle stuffed animal that was impossible to find in a store or anywhere online. The chance to “make an instant connection with the purchase,” Mabbett says, is rare in a world of massproduced products that can be bought with the click of a button. And it’s the “uniqueness, quality and one-of-a-kind sentiment” to handcrafted goods that have kept people coming back to the Firefly Markets for almost a decade. In fact, it was the Firefly Market’s initial success that encouraged its expansion into a market for all seasons. Pomerantz is excited about the new Summer Market that will take place on Historic South Gaylord Street in Denver’s Washington Park this August. Another distinctive feature of this growing community is the Junior and Teen Firefly Market. Exclusively featuring artwork by kids ranging from 7 to 17 years old, the Junior and Teen Market allows young creatives to gain valuable entrepreneurial experience and marketplace skills. From the age-inclusive mentality to constantly incorporating new artisans into the community, it’s clear that the women behind the Firefly Market are dedicated to offering opportunities for exposure to their artisans. “Firefly is a stand-out market because the promoters really care about their artists, which translates to quality vendors and a great clientele,” Stern says. Mabbett agrees. “The crew that comes to Firefly is like family... You’re coming home to something good.” Family is the backbone of the Firefly Market, from its network of creatives to their own inspirational families. Hound and Soul, a handmade dog apparel and accessory hotspot, was created by Kathy Johns to serve a different type of family member. Her business gives 5 percent of proceeds to animal welfare organizations. Johns’ pups, Scully and Dash, motivated her to make high-quality designs that could withstand the Colorado elements. From collars to leashes to jackets, all of the items made at Hound and Soul are crafted with style, functionality and the opportunity for adventure in mind. “The people of Colorado have a distinct, organic style that exudes confidence and beauty,” says Johns, a Kansas native. “You can’t help but be wowed by it.” Stern grew up in Baltimore, MaryBOULDER WEEKLY
land, and says the Colorado landscape, as well as her dad, largely influenced the design of her delicate sterling silver and 14K gold pieces. “He taught me to appreciate simplicity,” Stern says. “I find my most beautiful pieces are the ones that have very little going on — the ones when I know when to stop.” Personal narrative is an integral component to the creation of the goods on display at this artistic gathering place, but the stories don’t stop with the artisans. Each object, made with
an attention to detail and a love for the individual craft, continues its story with its new owner. One of the most rewarding and motivating aspects of her time at the market for Mabbett has been sending a child home with a new doll, then having the opportunity to watch those children grow when their families return to the markets over the seasons. Connections extend beyond the weekend when the booths are up and the streets are filled with colors, music and the smells of
delicious food. There’s a sense of camaraderie at the Firefly Market. Newfound, long-lasting friendships spill over into the daily lives of makers and buyers alike. “For people looking to buy quality goods with a story and a soul,” Pomerantz says, “Firefly Handmade is the place to be.” Check out the Summer Market, August 24-25, at Wash Park in Denver, and the Fall Fest Sept. 13-15 on the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder.

Inside the picnic basket:
sustainable local snacks
by John Lehndorff
ccording to MerriamWebster, a picnic is: 1) an excursion or outing with food eaten in the open; or, 2) a pleasant or amusingly carefree experience. Our takeaway is that picnic food should be easy, not a brain strain. Besides locally grown produce, fill your basket with some of these great locally produced, sustainable, ready-to-eat foods.

These organically grown Styrian pumpkin seeds — the creamiest, nuttiest ever — are Boulder-roasted with Turmeric Lime, Cacao Cinnamon and Ghost Pepper varieties. thefarmersporch.com Patagonia Provisions Salmon: Top your baguette with ready-to-eat, sustainably sourced, lemon-pepper smoked wild Sockeye salmon. patagoniaprovisions.com Haystack Mountain Funkmeister Cheese: You’ll never forget this double cream organic cow’s milk cheese with a distinct aroma and a savory flavor that ripens as the texture softens.

The organic bread includes 30 percent freshly ground kamut and spelt that gets a slow fermentation creating lots of flavor. thediazfarm.com Highland Wildflower Honey: This perfectly spreadable raw creamed wildflower honey collected from Boulder County bees is great with bread and cheese. highlandbees.com Healthy Harvest True Tuscan Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO): A local company infuses top-notch EVOO — single-estate, cold-pressed, early harvest — with roasted chilies and garlic from Boulder County’s Monroe Organic Farm. Dip your bread in this. healthyharvests.com Picaflor Live Culture Srirawcha Hot Sauce: Longmont’s McCauley Family Farms grows the
organic cayenne and Portugal peppers for this smooth, refrigerated, probiotic hot sauce mellowed with Highland Honey. picaflor.co Hoplark Sparkling HopTea: Boulder-made from high-quality black and green teas, this refresher is brewed with hops for a craft taste minus any sweeteners or alcohol. hoptea.com 8th Wonder Superfood Tea: To get going after the picnic for the hike home, try this caffeinated yerba mate tea infused with cayenne, banana, coconut and lemon. Boulder-brewed, this is not a shy beverage. 8thwondertea.com Hemp Cheeba Chews: And for dessert: Cherries & Cream Hemp Taffy, each piece infused with 25 mg of full-spectrum hemp-derived CBD — not THC and not psychoactive. These are great after a hike. hempcheebachews.com Vafels: The sweet, brioche-based Belgian-style waffle snack is baked in Boulder with organic, plant-based ingredients and sold in compostable packaging. vafels.com Tungsten Toffee: Family-made in Nederland, the buttery sweet treats come coated in craveable flavors: white chocolate pistachio and espresso dark chocolate with pecans. tungstentoffee.com

A cemetery might not be the first picnic spot that comes to mind, but this historic Denver park is a must-visit... as long as you don’t mind eating Rocky Ford melon with the deceased. Behind the elaborate front gates is a 280-acre site, an arboretum filled with hundreds of varieties of trees and roses, ornate gravestones and architectural landmarks including the Notre Dame-like Gothic Ivy Chapel complete with flying buttresses and garish gargoyles.

Mountain and lunch on the steps at Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Expand your pool of al fresco picnicking venues with these alternatives.
Genesee Park is the I-70 bison-watching destination famous for the buffalo that have usually roamed elsewhere. One new place they’ve been known to go is a less-crowded side of the park, accessible through the Chief Hosa exit. The treeshaded area includes a nature trail, picnic tables and sometimes, in the early mornings or late afternoons, a bison herd.
DAVIDSON MESA RECREATION AREA
For a quick sunset dinner spot, try the benches on the easy-access trails at Davidson Mesa Recreation Area off McCaslin Boulevard in Louisville. The suburban site offers a wow-factor — a west-facing view of the Front Range and Indian Peaks Wilderness.
CARIBOU RANCH OPEN SPACE
When you see the gorgeous landscape at this relatively recent addition to Boulder County Open
Space, you understand why it inspired Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” and Elton John’s Caribou album. The park, just off the Peak-to-Peak Highway east of Nederland, features trails through aspen groves. There are a few choice picnic tables, including one near North Boulder Creek and another near the site of the famous recording studios.
ELDORADO CANYON STATE PARK
Timing is everything. Don’t think about visiting this famous picnic destination any weekend June to September, but do drop by late mornings and early afternoons on weekdays to snack at the shaded tables along the trail near South Boulder Creek. Eldorado Springs Pool is closed for much-needed renovations this summer, so traffic and parking should be easier.
ROCKY MOUNTAIN ARSENAL NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE
If you haven’t visited, you can’t imagine the Colorado splendor hiding in plain sight near Commerce City. The 15,000-acre natural attraction includes a fascinating visitor center, grassland areas and wetlands with fishable lakes and cool picnicking spots throughout the park. You can also drive through the Jurassic Park-like gates into a bison habitat that includes signs noting: “Bison are wild, unpredictable animals — do not try to attract their attention.”

THE fine ART OF
arkour is a training discipline, originating as a means for military personnel to develop more agility and body awareness. Apex Center in Louisville has been dedicated to translating the sport into exercises and ideas that everyone can understand and appreciate. Coaches Max Hummel and Michael Sliger have been honing their own parkour skills for years in order to build the strength and grace necessary for parkour success and fun. Boulder Weekly Art Director Susan France
captures the energy, flow and focus this intense sport demands — translating the dynamic movements once more into art. As Hummel explains, parkour is magnetizing: “As soon as I knew what it was, I looked up internet videos and just started training, jumping around. ... It is a really great experience, [and] with our intro program, we have a lot of pads to learn whatever it is that you are interested in.” Check out a video of Hummel and Sliger in action at boulderweekly.com

Hummel says their work isn’t all about the big, serious jumps and huge gaps. “We also like to take a lot of clips of people fooling around and having fun,” he says.
didn’t like team sports while I was growing up,” Slinger says. Instead, he preferred individual discipline, where he didn’t have to worry about a lot of other people, and parkour has been the perfect outlet. “On the internet, parkour can be really flashy — really, really impressive. But it’s really important to understand that those people are at the highest level of their progression. Those people have been doing it for years. It is someone who can do the jump 100 times on the ground and not fail. Then they can progress themselves to height. When we teach in this gym specifically, we start out at the ground and we have a very rudimentary and fundamentally based system, where we just teach basic stuff, where we just build on it and build on it.”

One Step at a Time The Jive Tribe’s journey to success
by Lenah Reda
very successful band has a story of how they got to where they are now, and the path they traveled to get there is rarely one without adaptation or struggle. It takes time and effort to manifest the dreams one desires. The Jive Tribe is a local band that has accrued some substantial attention from younger audiences in Boulder; however, it’s taken six years of changes, hard work, networking, and trial and error to get to this point. Guitarist and vocalist Jake Leventhal has been creating music since his early adolescent years. In high school, he and two of his buddies banded together to play music that incorporated themes of classic rock, R&B and jazz. Together, they would form the first iteration of The Jive Tribe. The three of them practiced music together for years until the bass player began moving in an opposite direction, both socially and musically. Upon recognizing this split grow-
ing in the foundation of the band, Leventhal and drummer Joseph Hoffarth made the decision to branch off and do their own thing. “Even though our old bass player was a huge part of our beginning as a band, I think when he left was when we finally started to find our sound,” Leventhal says. Leventhal is also responsible for taking on the role of manager, booking agent and lyricist of most The Jive Tribe songs. He takes care of all the marketing and business operations, including managing finances and negotiating pay rates. These obligations take up the majority of Leventhal’s time; however, with Hoffarth growing into a role as assistant manager, there’s still a lot of room for creative fun as well. Leventhal and Hoffarth eventually started recording at Scanhope Sound recording studio in Littleton, where they met Joel Scanlon. As the head engineer for the studio and a seasoned drummer himself, Scanlon signed on to contribute his percussive talents during recording SUMMERSCENE
of the album while THE JIVE TRIBE has added members, and Hoffarth put down evolved their sound his drum sticks and over the years. Now, picked up the saxothey’re hitting their phone. After recordgroove. ing with The Jive Tribe for some time, he found himself enjoying it so much that he decided to become a permanent member of the band. “Once he joined, things really started to take shape because he had a lot of connections,” Leventhal says. Not long after, a young woman packed her bags and headed to Boulder to change the dynamic of the band once again, making The Jive Tribe what it is today. Sophie Engerman is a 20-year-old music major from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, with a diverse musical background that has allowed her to make monumental contributions to the band’s sound. She started THE JIVE TRIBE continued on page 26 I

singing in her school’s choir and was involved in other productions around her area at a young age. When she hit her teens, she discovered the School of Rock program. “Basically you sign up to be in a band with a bunch of other kids your age,” Engerman says. “You get a lesson a week and you have to go to band practice once a week and I remember it was anything from Pink Floyd and Rolling Stones covers to ’50s music.” Through School of Rock, Engerman became interested in the idea of being in a band and became a member of a group called Chalk. With a shared passion for classic rock music, Chalk created music together for three years, performing covers at local bars and winning multiple “Battle of the Bands” contests. However, Engerman’s choir teacher in high school would inspire an unexpected shift in her practice. Her instructor encouraged Engerman to start practicing opera, igniting her interest in classical music. “I realized I was actually really good at it,” Engerman says. “Even though I never thought I would want to be doing something like this because it seems like such a distant genre of music to kids in our generation.” Engerman now studies opera at CU Boulder while also doubling as a parttime lead vocalist for The Jive Tribe. She met Leventhal on an app, and the two quickly discovered their shared passion for creating music. Now, Engerman, Leventhal, Scanlon, Hoffarth and keys/ bassist Geoff Bremerm form the current version of The Jive Tribe. Their shared interest in rock music is what initially united them; however, with the addition of Engerman’s dynamic voice, the band finds themselves exploring new sonic territory. “We kind of moved away from the whole rock-jammy vibe that we initially 26 MAY 23, 2019
started with and are now going for a more composed, funk, soul, modern R&B sound,” Leventhal says. “The rock thing was fun but a lot of people are doing that, and it’s also not what people are really listening to these days.” Even now, The Jive Tribe still faces multiple obstacles. Not only can school inhibit Engerman’s ability to practice and contribute to the band, but she also struggles with her split loyalty to the particular genres of music she practices. She has a shared passion for practicing classical music in school and rehearsing rock, funk and soul tunes in band practice or performances. These two passions seem to clash with one another at times in terms of stylistic approach. “With opera, it’s kind of like a game of perfection and you realize how many components there are to singing as opposed to funk and soul and rock, where you are just belting it loudly,” Engerman says. “It has definitely changed my approach to singing but it’s kind of hard switching between the two genres because they are so different.” Engerman maintains that she doesn’t see a need to choose between the two. Instead, she’s searching for balance. Leventhal is flexible and works around Engerman’s schedule, allowing her to be as involved as she can be without it interfering with her studies or desired leisure time. The Jive Tribe currently has 12 songs released on Spotify, have played about 58 shows and plan on releasing a new album by the end of the fall; however, everything is subject to change and the band is prepared to acclimatize accordingly. “We still haven’t quite found our sound,” Leventhal says. “But we really hope to keep working with Sophie, contributing to the progress we make every single day and will continue to make as the music and band evolves.” I

MADE WITH PURPOSE A mission statement counts. BY EMMA MURRAY
very season, new gear and apparel lines hit retail stores and online platforms, each touting the best new technology, styles and functional applications. But what drives these brands and companies within their new product iterations and technical innovations? Here we examine the core of environmentally and socially progressive brands that are advancing the apparel and outdoor gear industries in responsible, sustainable strides.
“PROTECT THE WORLD YOU PLAY IN”
ecoming the most environmentally progressive brand on the planet may seem like a mammoth goal for some companies, but for tentree, it’s simply part of its natural evolution. With each item purchased, tentree promises to plant 10 trees in order to “revitalize our environment and inspire a generation to believe that they can do the same.” Its mission isn’t just to reduce the negative impact of the apparel industry, but also to use it as a vehicle for change. With blends of sustainable fabrics, you feel as good as you look in tentree’s laid-back, comfortable styles.
“EXPLORE, CONNECT AND GIVE BACK THROUGH RUNNING”
very year Janji releases two apparel collections, each celebrating a different part of the world. After choosing a country to serve as the season’s inspiration, Janji then begins extensive research and teams up with local artists to collaborate on exclusive prints and graphics. It chooses a local nonprofit to support local, sustainable, clean water solutions, which eventually receives 5 percent of the collection’s proceeds. Runners on team Janji then visit the country to test prototypes, connecting with locals and the nonprofit along the way.
“TO CREATE A SISTERHOOD OF SUPPORT”
rom the roads to the trails to the track, Oiselle is committed to fostering healthy relationships between female athletes and outdoor enthusiasts. With apparel built for women of all ages, sizes and interests, Oiselle weaves the diverse strands of the female experience into one collective voice that cheers and supports each individual’s journey to growth, strength and confidence. Oiselle also has educational campaigns like the “Bras for Girls” charitable donation program, which targets girls in late elementary school and middle school — the age at which some girls stop participating in sports.

“DEEPLY ROOTED IN TRADITION”
obbling goes back generations for folks living in the Northern Karnatake region of India. Mohinders works with families that have been making shoes and working with leather for longer than common memory. In upholding respect for traditional designs, techniques and processes, Mohinders achieves a low environmental impact and creates shoes that last a lifetime, using traditionally tanned water buffalo leather and biodegradable materials with recycled packaging materials. Transparency is a key tenet of Mohinders’ philosophy and what drives them to support the hardworking makers and their roots in Indian tradition.
“WE’RE IN BUSINESS TO SAVE OUR HOME PLANET.”
ll life on Earth is under threat of extinction, and Patagonia doesn’t shy away from this reality. In addition to providing top-of-the-line products, Patagonia is committed to finding sustainable and relevant solutions. As the climate crisis deepens, Patagonia aims to use its resources to do something about it — donating employees’ time, services and at least 1 percent of sale proceeds to help hundreds of global grassroots organizations. Forty-plus years deep into business, Patagonia is building a model rooted in core values such as repairability, leadership, simplicity and integrity for other companies to follow.
HOKA ONE ONE
“DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY”
mbracing each other’s differences is paramount to Hoka One One’s business model. Its goal is to make activities easier and more accessible to folks of all abilities by providing footwear that’s technologically advanced and perfectly primed for optimal comfort and support. Spending time outside is known to boost fulfillment in life and leads to healthier lifestyles. Whether your goal is to walk the dog more, train for your first trail race or hike a new mountain, Hoka’s array of shoes will get you where you need to go.
“LIVE THE LIFESTYLE”
wenty years ago, Backcountry started in a tiny Utahan garage. Since then, it’s grown into one of the most well-known outdoor gear marketplaces in the U.S. Only recently, the company launched its own in-house technical and lifestyle apparel line, partnering with expert companies to produce an entire collection suited for climbing, mountain biking and travel. Plus it integrated years of customer feedback and personal experiences to create a women’s clothing line that is actually women’s specific, both in function and taste. The folks at Backcountry live the values they preach — connecting folks’ passions, encouraging exploration, facilitating stewardship — and they preach the values they live.
“DESIGNED FOR GOOD”
here’s a reason superheros wear special outfits while out on the job — functionality aside, a uniform is a mission statement in and of itself. For the socially and environmentally responsible warriors out there, Toad&Co is committed to providing the uniforms for living life to the fullest. From the office to the trail to the brewery, sustainable fashion meets technical function within Toad&Co’s apparel line. Plus, in partnering with nonprofits and conservation organizations like Search Inc., Camber Outdoors, Leave No Trace and many others, Toad&Co wants its impacts to ripple far and wide.
“BORN OUT OF ACTIVISM”
hile a student in Washington, Robert Jungmann went camping in the Pacific Northwest woods and saw firsthand the destruction caused by clear-cutting. When back in a classroom, he learned about industrial hemp, and its potential to combat deforestation, and wanted to find a way to introduce hemp into everybody’s life. What does everybody need? Clothes. He built Jungmaven within the U.S. in order to spread awareness of hemp’s potential and in tandem launched HEMP 2020, a campaign highlighting the positive environmental impacts of hemp farming. Incredibly soft and long-lasting, Jungmaven’s 100-percent hemp tees can mitigate climate change one outfit at a time.

he Bobolink Trail itself is only a half-mile long yet connects directly to the South Boulder Creek Trail, which spans another 3 miles to Highway 93. There are endless opportunities to link to even more trails, such as making it all the way to Marshall Mesa or even the Mesa Trail for some substantial mileage circuits. The Bobolink Trail is wide and has a packed dirt or fine gravel surface, which makes it a popular choice. There is a leash requirement for dog walkers, though dogs under strict sight and voice control are allowed off-leash with current tags, obtainable from OSMP’s Voice and Sight Dog Tag Program. If the parking lot is full, there is parking across the street on Gapter Road, but pay attention to parking regulation signs. There is also alternative parking on 55th St. and Sioux Drive, which offers access to Bobolink at the south end.

oulder’s Open Space and Mountain Parks maintains 155 miles of trail within city limits alone, so whether you’re training for an epic ridge traverse or you’re wanting to become Boulder’s overlook connoisseur, there’s likely an excursion for you. From the sweeping Mesa Trail that connects Chautauqua Park to Eldorado Springs, to the incline challenges of the Flatirons and beyond, there are endless options for every level of recreationist in Boulder County. A substantial and interactive trail map created by TrailRunProject is both an app and a website that comes highly recommended and details distance, elevation, accessibility and more. For current trail conditions, make sure to utilize OSMP’s own interactive map found at bouldercolorado.gov/osmp
nother local favorite, the Wonderland Lake trail area is an incredible place to either stick to a wide, flat gravel loop around the lake or connect to trails through prairie dog territory or south to Mount Sanitas and beyond. The Wonderland Area is nestled along rolling hills in North Boulder, with access to a dog park and a launch site for paragliders, so keep an eye open to the sky.

more traditional trailhead for Bear Peak is the South Mesa parking lot off of Eldorado Springs Drive, which can be easily packed at any point in the day. The South Boulder Creek Trailhead is a great, less busy alternative. Gently rising through mixed grass prairie, this route meets up with the Mesa Trail briefly before heading up the steep and rocky Shadow Canyon. Since this canyon is relatively south-facing, snow and ice melt more readily than routes approaching from the north. For a full-day challenge, add South Boulder Peak to the rest of Boulder’s skyline for a point-to-point route over 17 miles, which tags Mount Sanitas as the last summit.
