“My job is to eat and drink everything delicious in Colorado and then write about it,” jokes Denise Mickelsen, food editor at 5280 Magazine, Denver’s monthly lifestyle magazine. After years spent in New York City and Danbury, Connecticut, Mickelsen picked up to move west in 2014 and hasn’t looked back since.
“One visit to Denver and you’ll be hooked,” she says. “It’s an incredibly friendly small city, with genuinely kind people, stunning mountain views, beautiful (if mercurial) weather that spans all four seasons, and at least 300 days of sunshine each year—really! The dining and bar scenes are killer; there’s excellent live music and art to check out; endless outdoor recreation opportunities; not to mention legal cannabis.”
