—Canines of the Rockies
Getting involved doesn’t always mean volunteering in a soup kitchen or running a half marathon, not that we're opposed to either. This week it means eating delicious food, taking in a magic show, drinking craft beer, patronizing your local art scene, and (!) playing with puppies.

Joe Riche's "Untitled" and "The Doom"
I've never been one for buzzwords. Terms like "juicing" and "selfie" leave a sour taste in my mouth (which is not to say I've never uttered them); they tend to oversimplify, and thus tire quickly—only to be replaced by the next big thing. But in the case of one of the Arvada Center's latest...
