Shop, support non-profits locally in November

FRONT RANGE During the busy gift-buying season that begins this month, be sure to spend time shopping in your community and supporting local businesses, especially on Small Business Saturday, Nov. 24. Many benefits come from staying local and shopping small. Money spent in the community will go back into it in the form of creating employment opportunities. According to the Small Business Administration, the 28 million small businesses in America account for 54 percent of all sales in the U.S. Plus, small businesses have provided 55 percent of all jobs and 66 percent of all new jobs since the 1970s. When you make a purchase

at a small business, you are doing your part to stimulate the local economy. Shopping at small businesses helps keep money within the neighborhood. A series of studies by the research firm Civic Economics found 48 percent of purchases at local independent businesses go back into the community compared to less than 14 percent of sales made at chain stores. By shopping at a business in the neighborhood, you’ll most likely stop by other independent retailers in the vicinity. You can also get away from the mass-produced items found at big box chains by shopping at an independent retailer which offer locally-made gifts and products.


By participating in Small Business Saturday, you can be sure local independent businesses thrive and continue adding to the vibrancy and uniqueness of a community.

Eben writes the songs, which range from Elvis Costello style crafted pop, to Son Volt country tinged grit.

NOTEWORTHY The Jauntee - Always Never Knowing


olorado-based psychedelic-jazz-blues-funk band The Jauntee released its latest album, Always Never Knowing, in September and celebrated at Cervantes Masterpiece Ballroom in Denver and The Caribou Room in Nederland in October. It was recorded in front of a live audience in Cambridge, MA at The Bridge Sound & Stage, in July 2017. The album is a “quintessential selection of live works” from the two-night-run in the band member’s hometown. It features 16 tracks that were professionally recorded, mixed, and mastered by sound engineer Alex Allinson. Tom Waltz also did some mastering. It showcases the band’s masterful playing and inspiring ability to take its original music and create something unique night after night. It also features nine previously unreleased tracks that have quickly become staples of the band’s live show. Experience the act in its purest element, pushing the boundaries of their sound while sharing that trip with their fans. All music and lyrics are written by The Jauntee except Dog Gone Blues by Jacob Leverenz. Artwork and design for the album was created by Add Noise Studios. The Jauntee— which according to band members is “whatever you what it to be, but whiskey and sauce are both vital ingredients”—is Scott Ferber on drums, Caton Sollenberger on guitar, Tyler Adams on keyboards and John Loland on bass. In a world filled with instant gratification, gimmicky over saturation and a lack of true improvisation, The Jauntee pay tribute to “music’s ability to transcend simple entertainment and cultivate a truly distinctive experience.” The Jauntee has fostered a musical community based on a breadth of original material that engages fans through nightly exploration and risk taking. Averaging over 100 shows a year, with each containing a unique set list and their own special improvisational moments, the band is constantly expanding upon what defines them and their live performances. The Jauntee start the second leg of its Always Never Knowing tour. It starts, Nov. 8 in Bozeman, MT and routes through Moscow, Seattle, Bellingham, Ashland, Portland, Clarkston and Livingston.

Capturing ‘Essence’ of Animals Photographer’s images portray connection to wildlife


he Art Center of Estes Park showcases the work of Allenspark resident Weldon Lee, one of America’s top wildlife photographers, Nov. 16-Dec. 23. His show, “Family Portraits: My Wild Brothers & Sisters,” includes an opening night reception with the artist, Nov. 16, 5-7 p.m., complete with hors d’oeuvres and beverages. A selection of images from Mr. Lee’s “Mystic World” series, along with his latest creations and a few older favorites are featured. Lee travels around the globe to the world’s most exotic locations photographing wildlife and capturing the essence of their personalities on film. He has a special way of communicating with animals and his images depict that relationship. His commitment to wildlife brings a fresh perspective to photography. The artist’s dramatic portrayals of wildlife in their natural surroundings provide viewers an intimate glimpse into their daily lives and is but one reason his images are popular among collectors. “[Photography] transports me into the spirit world of my wild brothers and sisters, where I find myself connecting with them and listening to what they have to say,” Lee said. “My goal in producing a work of photographic art is to create in it the things I see, hear and feel when I’m in that magical space. My art is a collaboration between myself and my wild brothers and sisters. This is why I’m drawn to create images out of the ordinary.” This “collaboration” can be seen in Lee’s “Mystic World” series inspired by artist Bev Doolittle. “Not only do images in this series portray my wild brothers and sisters in the spirit world,” Lee explained, “it exposes them communicating with life in our world.” The photographer’s latest series—which he sometimes refers to as photographic realism with a touch of expressionism—actually look more like paintings, than photographs. “They have everything to do with what happens when I look through my camera’s viewfinder into the eyes of my subject and feel connected,” he said. “There are times I can almost sense my subject’s inner most thoughts. My newest work portrays, to the best of my ability, those feelings and emotions. For me, it’s all about their eyes.” In addition to these newer images, Lee will also include a selection of his “old standbys” on display for anyone into the more “traditional form” of photography. Art Center of Estes Park is located at 517 Big Thompson Ave. Galler hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday-Monday. Visit weldonlee.com and artcenterofestes.com or call 970-586-5882 to learn more.

BBQ business smokin’ hot A

CENTRAL CITY fter six years of being a street vendor at a handful of annual local events and catering increasingly larger gatherings, Joe and Kara Tinucci of JKQ BBQ decided to make a jump to the big time. The couple are now running a full-service restaurant and bar in the historic Teller House with lunch and dinner hours, Thursday-Sunday. The venture has proven to be quite popular with locals, which keeps them—and their staff— busy much of the time. Surprisingly, despite the exhaustion and long hours, they still just consider it a hobby. The couple celebrate their new location during an all-day Grand Opening event, Nov. 9, featuring live music and a full-menu including burgers, salmon, salads and more. Hobby or not, operating the new restaurant, which also includes a 60-person special event room, is a lot of work. The food part came easy but learning how to run a restaurant has been a process. “There is a lot to learn and a lot to do,” Kara explained. “You don’t realize how much time it takes to inventory and shop and order. We’ve never had a bar, and all of a sudden, we have liquor distributors and beer distributors. We’ve been learning as we go. It’s been fun, definitely a great experience.”

Even though the couple has been figuring it out as they go, they seem to be doing something right. Positive word-of-mouth and an opportunity to eat and drink in the Teller House again has kept most of the seats full during open hours, 11:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. “We’ve been really well received and that feels really good,” Kara said. “I tear up when I say it. We both get really emotional about it. It’s just an awesome feeling. The amount of support is unexpected. It’s just beyond what we thought. The whole-county support, the whole-city support has just been really good.” Moving up from working under a pop-up tent to becoming a real restaurateur has been a “slow build,” according to Kara. “The first year we did Lou Bunch Days we made three briskets and six pork shoulders, and we were sold out by 3 p.m.,” she said. “Now, we are doing events that we cook 24 pork shoulders and 15 briskets. The first year we catered the Opera Picnic we served 125 people, this year we served over 400.” The menu in the new space—which includes the famous Face Bar, the Atrium Room and the Little Kingdom Room—contains many of the items they’ve served at festivals and events for years including slow-smoked beef Continued on page 20

Teller House location proves popular Continued from page 14

brisket, pulled pork, chicken and kielbasa along with St. Louis-style ribs, pig wings and loaded tots. Popular sides like their coleslaw, potato salad, mac and cheese are also available. Now that JKQ BBQ is operating out of the Teller House and its kitchen, anything is possible. “We have the ability to scratch-make most things that are being served. We are making our BBQ sauce and the sides, except for our tater tots,” Kara said. “We can do fun things like our Saturday night Steak Night and have weekly specials like our smoked salmon BLT. We can also offer banquet facilities for weddings, anniversaries and more. Any room rental goes directly to the Opera.” The Tinuccis have also been “menu testing” temporary specials like red pepper and tomato soup, loaded potato skins, house-smoked salmon, baked beans, burgers and homemade apple pie. A recent Gilpin School Homecoming menu included a New York strip steak, stuffed chicken breast, vegetable lasagna, rice pilaf and more. They have also started curing pastrami and bacon. All menu items are available to go as well. Although most of the menu and catering items they’ve attempted over the years have proven popular, it’s Joe’s smoked meats that keep people coming back. Ever since accidently discovering an affinity for smoking meat when a co-worker in Mississippi introduced it to him 25 years ago, Joe has been perfecting his methods. “I hacked away at it for 15 years. Horribly hacked away at it,” he said. “Then, [Kara and I] met, and we were like maybe we should start to take this a little more seriously, instead of just getting drunk and making food.” Once they began to take it seriously, the idea of operating a food truck came up, and that’s when “everything started to click.” By now the couple was living in Las Vegas and were doing some catering. “Joe really wanted a food truck,” Kara explained. “It was right when food trucks were starting out and we were the seventh or eighth food truck in Vegas. It was really successful also, like overwhelming successful.” Even then, they still considered it a hobby. “It was just all a joke at that time. We weren’t taking it serious,” Joe said.

When their baby was born, Joe was faced with the need to get a “real” job. His 25 years of work in the gaming industry led him to a position at The Reserve in Central City, and it wasn’t long before the entire family moved to town. Eventually, just before making a move to Palm Springs, local casino owner Johnny Zimpel offered Joe a job he couldn’t—and didn’t—refuse. While Joe continues to work his casino job, Kara runs the Skye Cottage Bed and Breakfast while helping plan and cater local events on the side. Together they are raising a toddler and a pair of dogs, one of which is a puppy. With all the other work and responsivity, it’s no wonder they consider the BBQ business a hobby. They do have help at the restaurant to ease the burden a little, and most of it is local. Central City Alderman Jeff Aiken is back pouring drinks behind the same bar where he was bartender 35 years ago. Larry Bradley, the new chef, recently moved to town from Las Vegas—where he previously worked with Joe on the food truck—following his dream of running a restaurant. “The Teller House is such a special place. We are doing this for the community. It was so important for us to give back by hiring local, sharing the beautiful Teller House, and bringing awareness to the opera,” Kara said. “There are a lot of people that come in and say, ‘oh, I remember working here’ and it’s just awesome to be sitting in here again.” The Tinuccis have a lease for the Teller House space until May when the Central City Opera Association, which owns the building, will consider an extension through opera season and the rest of next year. “There is a possibility of us going past that, we just don’t know yet. We know we have to prove ourselves and expend the menu to do more than just BBQ. We want to be able to offer some bistro options as well.” Kara said. JKG BBQ is located inside the Teller House, 120 Eureka St. Stop in during open hours, Thursday-Sunday, 11:30 a.m.-7:30 p.m. or visit, Nov. 9 for the Grand Opening.

Ski Season Preview Area resorts debut new lifts, terrain, amenities

The new “Chet’s Dream” lift made its debut on Loveland Ski Area’s opening day, Oct. 20. Photo by Casey Day/Colorado Ski Photography


olorado’s 2018-19 ski season is underway. A “high-energy crowd” of skiers and snowboarders celebrated the official start of the season, Oct. 19, when Arapahoe Basin Ski Area opened for daily operations. A similar scene was found the following day at Loveland Ski Area when it began spinning its lifts for the season. Opening day signals the start of another world-class winter in Colorado, where life-long skiers, new participants and those looking to enjoy the mountain environment can enjoy Colorado’s consistently great winter conditions, bluebird skies and warm welcome. Significant snowfall in October allowed the ski areas—both of which are located along the Continental Divide between Clear Creek and Summit counties—to begin snowmaking early and kick-off the season without delay. The early-season snow gave Wolf Creek Ski Area in southwest Colorado the opportunity to unofficially start the season with weekend skiing and riding beginning Oct. 13. Most other area resorts start welcoming skiers and riders by mid-November. “The early season snowfall has created momentum and excitement for the opening of the ski season here in Colorado,” Colorado Ski Country USA President and CEO Melanie Mills said. “After months of hard work and millions of dollars of investment in the guest experience, Colorado is ready to welcome skiers, snowboarders and guests to our ski areas, whether they’re long-time Colorado skiers or first-time visitors. Winter has arrived in the Colorado mountains and it’s great to see winter sports enthusiasts out in force.” Colorado Ski Country USA member resorts—including Loveland, Echo Mountain, Arapahoe Basin, Winter Park, Eldora, Copper Mountain and Granby Ranch—as well as Breckenridge and Keystone, spent the off-season working on major upgrades. Across the state, six new chairlifts, six new dining experiences and two terrain expansions debut this season. Many of these new improvement projects are at resorts in this area, all of which have new experiences awaiting their guests this season.

Arapahoe Basin Ski Area

When it opened in mid-October, Arapahoe Basin debuted its The Beavers four-person chairlift and an expanded The Beavers and The Steep Gullies areas for intermediate and expert guests. “We are all getting excited about the start of our ski season. It is here, and we are ready to go,” Director of Marketing and Communications Leigh Hierholzer said. A-Basin opened approximately 371 acres of new terrain last season as a “preview.” This summer, operations crews constructed 97 more acres of tree skiing and continued improving the rest of the terrain with grading, glading and installation of a new chairlift and picnic areas. Opening this season, II Rifugio at Snowplume will open to offer guests the experience of a European-style delicatessen in a mountain setting similar to what you would find in the Alps. Guests can enjoy antipasto, charcuterie and a selection of imported cheeses, along with splits of wine and a selection of imported beers. According to Food and Beverage Director Christopher Rybak, the Refugio’s concept was inspired by the breathtaking views from the Snowplume building at the summit. “You have spectacular, high-alpine views in every direction from that building. It’s the perfect location to have that European-style dining experience,” he said.


A year after installing the Alpenglow six-person chairlift, the ski area debuts RFID pass technology. New glading projects and upgrades to Eldora’s electrical and communication systems will also give guests more reasons to smile, as will more frequent early-season and mid-week events and activities. Eldora opens on Nov. 16.

Granby Ranch

This season, Granby Ranch offers groups an opportunity to rent the ski area’s entire East Mountain for an evening. Guests will have full access to the East Mountain night skiing terrain from 5-9 p.m. The resort plans to open on Dec. 14.

Loveland Ski Area

When it opened in October, Loveland Ski Area unveiled its new lift, Chet’s Dream. Chet’s Dream is the first highspeed quad in the ski area’s history and is named after the ski area’s longtime owner, Chester R. “Chet” Upham Jr. “Chet’s Dream is the big news for this season,” Marketing Director John Sellers said. “This new high-speed quad from Leitner-Poma replaced Lift 1 and will shorten the ride time from about eight minutes to under three minutes. As our first highspeed lift and the largest single Copper Mountain capital improvement project in For the 2018-19 season, Copthe history of the ski area, this per Mountain will debut the new is a significant investment in the American Flyer and American future of Loveland.” Eagle chairlifts out of Copper’s Upham’s dedication and love Center Village.
