DOG PARK: West Arvada Dog Park 17975 W. 64th Ave., Arvada arvada.org

The West Arvada Dog Park is a great place to take your dogs. For me, it’s like a sanctuary. You get away from the hustle and bustle of city life. A dog park helps bring people together because of the great comradery. — Bill Doran

WHAT THEY DO: Providing open space for our four-legged friends, the West Arvada Dog Park was built using community donations in 2005. Courtesy photo

HISTORY: The West Arvada Dog Park opened on June 18, 2005. It is a “Special Use” park. It is operated by volunteers on City-owned property and is funded 100 percent through donations.

Happy, healthy dogs make a happy healthy community. When dogs have the chance to exercise, socialize and play, they become better members of the community. Incidents of animal surrender, animal control citations, and other unwanted behavior diminishes. Bill Doran, president of the West Arvada Dog Park Volunteers Group, said when the idea to create a dog park in Arvada came up, they wanted a place that people could take their dogs and be safe and enjoy.

Thank you to our customers for all your support and votes!

“The great thing about this park is it’s the one of the biggest fenced dog parks in the area,” Doran said. “There are bigger parks, but none of those are fenced in.” The West Arvada Dog Park is located on City of Arvada land but is not funded by the city. “That’s what makes this park a true community asset,” Doran said. “All the upkeep, maintenance and improvements are strictly done with donations and volunteers.”

GOLF COURSE: Red Hawk Ridge 2156 Red Hawk Ridge Dr., Castle Rock 720-733-3500 | redhawkridge.com

Our team is committed to providing first class service and product quality to the golfing community. We take pride in consistent playing conditions and service levels each and every day. The team here will accommodate the guest’s needs and do their best to ensure a fantastic experience from the time the golfer pulls into the parking lot until they wrap up their dining experience on our beautiful outdoor patio. — Bob Persichetti, PGA Head Golf Professional

Red Hawk Ridge serves as a golf course for everyone, host program for women, men, seniors and high-school students.

HISTORY: Red Hawk Ridge opened in 1999, during a time when the sport was booming and golf courses were being built across the nation at a rapid rate. The town of Castle Rock took advantage of the boom, and worked with U.S. Homes to develop the property and the community.

By Tabatha Stewart

WHAT THEY DO: Red Hawk Ridge, owned and operated by the town of Castle Rock, is truly a golf course for everyone. They host a ladies’ club, a men’s club, a senior league, a coed league and several junior leagues each season. They also host the golf teams for Douglas County High School and Castle View High School each year. The course has five sets of tee boxes on each hole which will challenge the low handicap golfer and give the less

experienced golfer an option to play it forward as they develop their golf game. The clubhouse Grill provides golfers with delicious, quality food, and experienced PGA professionals are on hand for custom club fitting. The course also boasts more than 35 turf stations, target greens, a practice bunker and putting green for golfers to practice their skills.

JEWELRY STORE: Castle Rocks and Jewelry 3990 Limelight Ave., Unit C, Castle Rock 720-379-5179 | castlerocksandjewelry.com

Everyone has been so gracious and happy here in Castle Rock. Our customers are great and we love being involved in their stories. — Jennifer Velasquez

By Tabatha Stewart

WHAT THEY DO:

Castle Rocks and Jewelry customers can bring in their own ideas or designs to be crafted, or they can browse the selection of pieces in the store to get ideas.

HISTORY: Velasquez and Baques moved to Castle Rock from New York to raise a family and start Castle Rocks and Jewelry. Velasquez is a Colorado Native from Glenwood Springs.

Castle Rocks and Jewelry is all about bringing jewelry to life. The familyowned shop offers custom designs for customers, allowing them to bring to life their ideas for one-of-a kind pieces of jewelry. Using CAD design, sketch design and 3D waxes, designers at Castle Rocks and Jewelry can do almost anything their customers desire. Customers can choose from a wide range of loose stones, or fossils and minerals to use in their custom designs, or bring any existing pieces of jewelry in to have them designed into a brand-

new piece. Repairs are also part of the services offered by Castle Rocks and Jewelry. Jennifer Velasquez, designer and coowner with husband Isidre Baques, said turning vintage pieces of jewelry into new, updated pieces is a big part of their customer service, and a welcome challenge. If the gold in the ring is sentimental to the customer, it will be melted down and used in the new piece. If not, customers receive credit for the gold toward the price of the new piece.

PHYSICAL THERAPY: Physical Therapy Specialists 7853 E. Arapahoe Court, Suite 1400, Centennial 303-740-2026 | ptspecialist.com At Physical Therapy Specialists, we specialize in taking care of people who have been everywhere else and have been able to get better. We help patients make a journey to become independent and no longer require physical therapy. We give our full attention and time to every patient we serve. — Dawn Sandalcidi

WHAT THEY DO: Dawn Sandalcidi, the owner of Physical Therapy Specialists, gets a patient ready to see a specialist. Photo provided by Ann Marie Arnold of Physical Therapy Specialists.

HISTORY: Physical Therapy Specialists began in 1989 with a vision of being different than other clinics – specializing and focusing on the individual needs of each patient in a private environment.

The specialists at Physical Therapy Specialists listen to what your body tells us and guides your treatment to restore the things in your life that have meaning for you. We will be your guide throughout your healing process, and our goal is to help your body recover and teach you how to sustain good health on your own. Dawn Sandalcidi, owner of Physical Therapy Specialists, said they have become the place people go when they’ve tried everything else.

By Thelma Grimes

Dawn Sandalcidi said she opened Physical Therapy Specialists in Centennial to give patients a place to see top-notch doctors who are trained and specialize in a variety of treatments. With patients coming in the doors that have not seen success in more than two years of treatment elsewhere, Sandalcidi said her office of qualified physicians step in and make a difference. In opening the center, Sandalcidi said the focus isn’t just on the pain, but also on restoring a patient’s functionality.

BAKERY: Sweet Alfas 796 E. Kiowa Ave., Unit H5, Elizabeth 720-398-8816 | sweetalfas.com

Based on our success and how positively our customers are responding, we’re excited to keep offering our cookies and other baked goods. — Melissa Casaretto

By Pam Peccolo

WHAT THEY DO: The Sweet Alfas team, including owners Olie Casaretto, Luigi Casaretto and Melissa Casaretto. Courtesy photo

HISTORY: In November 2017, owner Melissa Casaretto, Luigi and her sister-in-law, Olie, expanded Sweet Alfas with a storefront location in Elizabeth. In March 2019, Tony’s Market began selling Sweet Alfas cookies in their grocery stores.

Sweet Alfas is a bakery that specializes in Peruvian Alfajor cookies and other baked goods. An alfajor is a shortbreadstyle sandwich cookie filled with dulce de leche and rolled in different toppings, such as coconut, cinnamon and sugar or powdered sugar. The cookies are baked daily at the company’s commercial kitchen in Elizabeth. When Melissa Casaretto married her husband, Luigi, she didn’t imagine she would someday own a cookie company

that ships products to customers around the country. “My husband is of Peruvian descent and I got good at making the alfajor cookies for the family,” she said. “In 2013, my baking turned into an e-commerce business when I was trying to raise money as part of a fundraiser for our daughter to go to Disneyland. I kept getting good feedback and kept taking orders.”

Englewood | 2019 Best of the Best

BANK/CREDIT UNION: Arapahoe Credit Union 303 E. Hampden Ave., Englewood 303-740-7063 | arapahoecu.org Arapahoe Credit Union is the not-for-profit version of a bank. We do everything they do, but we do it for the community and our members/owners. We do not pay investors, we do not give huge corporate salaries and we do not make risky decisions with other people’s money. This allows us to provide our services for far less and be focused on true service. — Sean Martin, Associate VP of Communications By Pam Peccolo

WHAT THEY DO: Airy Takahashi helps a credit union member get business wrapped up before the weekend. Courtesy photo

HISTORY: Arapahoe Credit Union began as a credit union for teachers, but has expanded its clientele in the 80 years that have followed. The nonprofit serves customers in Centennial, Littleton, Englewood, Highlands Ranch, Lone Tree, Golden and Castle Rock.

Arapahoe Credit Union is a cooperative, not-for-profit, financial institution organized to promote thrift and provide credit to its participants. Memberowned and controlled through a board of directors elected by its membership, Arapahoe Credit Union’s primary purpose is to save its members money by charging lower rates for loans and paying high dividends on savings. The credit union can provide credit cards, home and auto loans, personal loans, insurance and commercial loans. In

addition, all members can use other credit union locations for withdrawals, deposits and other transactions. According to Sean Martin, Associate VP of Communications for Arapahoe Credit Union, the credit union is an ideal financial institution for everyone. “Arapahoe Credit Union may be more willing to work with a person than a bank,” he said. “If someone is rebuilding credit or if they are just out of college or starting their first job, we are a great partner.”

Golden | 2019 Best of the Best

CAFÉ : Café 13 1301 Arapahoe St., Golden 303-278-2225 | cafe13golden.com

We like to think we’ve created a café that reminds you of a cozy living room where you want to meet your neighbors and meet new people. — Jennifer Thoemke, co-owner

By Pam Peccolo

WHAT THEY DO: Staff of Café13 and community members were excited to celebrate the café’s grand opening, which came under new ownership last year. Courtesy photo

HISTORY: Café 13 is owned by Golden natives Dan and Jennifer Thoemke. The opportunity to purchase the cafe was a 20-year dream come true. After extensive remodeling, Café 13 reopened in April 2019 with a full bar and enlarged kitchen.

Located in Golden’s historic Armory Building, Café 13 offers everything from “Breakfast to Bourbon.” The cafe features a full coffee bar, breakfast and lunch menus, and a later-bites menu with a selection of wine, beer and cocktails. Glazed teal tile, industrial finishes and dark wood seating create a comfortable, yet modern setting for customers who meet for business or book clubs. The breakfast menu

includes several different scrambles, breakfast sandwiches and burritos, while lunch offers gourmet salads and sandwiches such as the Filet Mignon Philly Cheese Steak and the Pesto Grilled Cheese. Cheese fondue, brussel sprouts with shishito peppers and bison sliders are a few of the evening sharable bites that pair well with Café 13’s beer, wine or drink specials.

Doing business in the Golden community for over

11 years!

The community’s been wonderful and our customers have been very supportive. I think our regular customers would agree that once you come into Piccino it will become your family favorite. — Robyn Lubatty, co-owner

WHAT THEY DO: Staff members Rogelio Munoz, Erica Sanchez and Carmen Chi Verde create delicious Italian meals for customers at Piccino Wood Oven Pizza. Photo courtesy Robyn Lubatty

HISTORY: Robyn and Andrew Lubatty purchased Piccino Wood Oven Pizza in 2016, out of a desire to deliver world-class pizza to Coloradans. Both are from New York, where pizza was a staple of life.

Piccino Wood Oven Pizza brings a little slice of Italy to Littleton, serving handmade pizzas, oven-baked pastas and fresh sandwiches, in a friendly, family atmosphere. Pizzas are wood-fired, and include toppings ranging from the traditional to the extraordinary, including fiery shrimp, roasted chicken, and the latest addition of a “white pizza,” called Quattro Frommagi, which has a home-made alfredo sauce as the base. The pizzeria also features a full-service bar, with several signature cocktails. Dishes are available for take-out, and

MARGARITA: Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant 9535 Park Meadows Dr., Lone Tree 303-799-4999 | riograndemexican.com

We provide a sanctuary from the problems of the world, while serving the best dang margaritas and Mexican food this side of the Rio Grande. — Matt Ciani, General Manager

By Pam Peccolo

WHAT THEY DO: Customers celebrate together with margaritas at the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant. Courtesy photo

HISTORY: The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant was dreamed up by three friends from Texas in 1986. They opened their flagship Fort Collins location in 1986, then added locations in Boulder, Denver, Greeley, Frisco and Lone Tree.

Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant is known for its margaritas and locallysourced, organic, scratch-made food. Their signature dish is their fajitas, made with high-quality steak. The restaurant has a high-energy, fun atmosphere, making it a great fit for families and adults out for a night on the town. Rio Grande hosts regular Taco de Tuesdays, with $2 taco and $6 margarita deals, and is jam-packed every year on Cinco de Mayo.

Bringing you the local news, Bringing home the awards!

In September, Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant will launch a Harvest Days menu, which will showcase locallygrown ingredients sourced from around the Denver area. The restaurant is community-driven and supports local schools, fire departments, police departments and correction facilities with fundraisers. General Manager Matt Ciani said, “We want to take care of the community in which we operate.”

The Colorado

Community Media team brought home 50 awards at the Colorado Press Association’s 2019 award ceremony and 10 awards at the recent Society of Professional Journalists’ Top of the Rockies contest. “Being recognized by our peers is validation of the quality work of our staff. I am proud to be associated with the team here, and our readers can expect more good things to come.” - Publisher Jerry Healey

Parker | 2019 Best of the Best

BBQ RESTAURANT: Hickory House Ribs 10335 S. Parker Rd., Parker 303-805-9742 | hickoryhouseribs.com Our customers are great and so are our employees. I’ve seen many or our employees work here through high school and go on to college. We’ve even had some workers who met while working here and ended up getting married. Thank you to customers and workers who have supported us through the years. — Paul Dioguardi, owner By Tabatha Stewart

WHAT THEY DO: Opened since 2003, Hickory House Ribs has become one of Parker’s most popular eateries. Courtesy photo

HISTORY: Dioguardi moved to Colorado in 1996, opened the Aspen location in 1998, and has been serving up world class barbecue ever since. Hickory House Ribs is family oriented, and many workers have stayed with Dioguardi for more than 10 years.

The folks at Hickory House Ribs in Parker have been delivering world class barbecue to locals since 2003, after their original restaurant, which opened in Aspen in 1998, was such a success. Hickory House offers full-service dining and cocktails, as well as takeout orders. Open for lunch and dinner, their menu includes all things barbecued, such as BBQ chicken, BBQ pulled pork and Old Colorado Smokehouse sausage. The “Hickory,” “Beast” and “Jimbo” are a few of their specialty sandwiches, and they also serve a vegan black bean burger for

those who don’t care for meat. Their pig roasts are also a big hit with fans, and can be prepared on site or picked up. Paul Dioguardi, owner of Hickory House Ribs, has more than 30 years of experience in the barbecue industry. As a young man of 14, he took a job traveling around Chicago presenting delicious barbecue in rib competitions. He took a smattering of what he learned and came up with his own recipes, with the intention of opening his own restaurant someday.

Since we’ve been in business for 24 years, we have had a very loyal clientele. They’ve supported us and we really appreciate them. — Vickie Zwart, owner

By Tabatha Stewart

WHAT THEY DO:

Flash gets to hang out at work with his owner Vickie Zwart at Heritage Pet in Parker. Photo courtesy Vickie Zwart

HISTORY: Vickie Zwart opened Heritage Pet 24 years ago, after being a life-long animal lover. She had hoped as a child that her parents would buy her a horse, but they never did. When she moved to Parker, she bought land and bought her own horses, and opened the pet care facility.

Heritage Pet is a full-service pet care and spa located in Parker, with a grooming service in Aurora and a mobile grooming service that serves the Front Range. The Parker location offers pet boarding, where cats and dogs can enjoy loving attention, maximum fun and plenty of loving attention for overnight guests. The dog daycare gives pet owners peace of mind while they’re at work, and the facility includes play areas that are continuously monitored by highly-trained staff. Pet grooming at the spa is available for all breeds at both the Parker and Aurora location, as

well as through the mobile grooming service. Professional trainers address many of the most common dog behavior issues as well as teaching dogs basic and advanced obedience training. Owner Vickie Zwart opened the doggie day care and overnight lodging at the request of her clients, after hearing they didn’t want to leave their pets with someone they didn’t trust. Zwart and her staff participate in continuing education classes to ensure all pets in their care are getting the best, most up to date care.
