Santiago’s Brighton Review

Written by Marina Gonzalez

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear the word “chili?” Is it ground beef with seasonings and beans, fresh out of a crock pot, topped with yellow, shredded cheese that melts as soon as you sprinkle it on top, and crisp, fresh, diced purple onion, accompanied by a packet of saltines or bread roll? Or is it roasted hatch peppers, with tomato and garlic, blended and cooked to perfection mixed with tiny chunks of pork? In Colorado, one would typically have the option of red or green chili. However, this wasn’t an option when my family first dined at Santiago’s restaurant in Brighton, Colorado. Santiago’s is a very well known restaurant in the community. One of the things that makes this restaurant such a popular go-to spot, is their pork green chili that can be added to practically any dish on their menu. 

Tangerine Restaurant Review

Written by Robyn Portlock

If you are looking for a delicious restaurant to eat brunch at in Lafayette, Tangerine is the place! I really enjoyed my experience at Tangerine in Old Town Lafayette. One of my family’s favorite pastimes is trying out different brunch places on Sundays, so I consider myself a fairly good brunch critic.  Tangerine is owned by Chef Alec Schuler, who also owned Arugula in Boulder, and opened its doors in Lafayette in 2018. 

Porco Rosso, An Exciting and Solemn Adventure (Spoilers review)

By Madison Otten

 Porco Rosso is a high-flying adventure from Studio Ghibli and Hayao Misazaki, who also created and directed other works such as Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, My Neighbor Totoro. Porco Rosso premiered in 1992 and earned $59 million while on a ¥9.2 million budget ($85,836 USD). Featuring voice talents such as Micheal Keaton, Susan Eagon, Brad Garrett, and Cary Ewles to help bring the multilayered and charming characters to life. This film is often overlooked for it’s ‘odd’ premise, but if you can move past the cover, you’ll be rewarded with a stunning and heartfelt film with a grand adventure that has been sorely lacking in modern cinema. Beware, spoilers are ahead, so I encourage you to watch this movie any way you can.
