Lighthouse Review

Written by Samantha Wolfe “Keeping secrets, are ye?” Since its premiere at Cannes Film Festival earlier this year, The Lighthouse has been generating conversation across film fans and critics alike. Coming four years after director Robert Eggers’ feature length debut, The Witch, his sophomore feature engulfs viewers in a time long forgotten, using excellent cinematography, a smart script and a minimal but excellent cast to transport audiences along to the lighthouse with them.

5280 Burger Bar Review

Written by Jennifer Cadena Illustration by Madison Otten 5280, a clever nod to the city’s topographic distance above sea-level, has received much deserved praise from local publications like the Westword, Drink Denver, and Fox31 Denver. First opened in the Denver Pavillions in 2014, business has been so good that, in 2017, a second location has graced the northern Westminster marketplace. 

First Place Writing Contest, In the Darkness

Written by Lori May Illustration by Madison Otten Sarah woke with her cheek pressed against the cold, damp floor. Sitting up with a start, she opened her eyes to peer into impenetrable darkness; not a single flicker or wisp of light disturbed the sanctity of the blackness around her.

Writing Contest Second Place Winner, Winter’s Howl

Written by Garrett Dawdy Illustration by Madison Otten You could hardly tell a gravel road was supposed to be there, the amount of snow turned the whole ground into a white blanket, only the absences of trees gave it away. It was cold, so very cold. The jacket and hat did nothing to stop the winding from howling icy daggers into you. Your car was a good bit away, abandoned when you couldn’t get it free, and with no heater your only option was to move, at least you hoped it was the only decision and not a mistake.

A “Fishy” Review, El Pelicano Restaurant Review

Written by Katherine Garcia Illustration by Madison Otten When you live on the mainland, it is hard to find a fantastic seafood restaurant. El Pelicano (or, in English, “The Pelican”) is a Mexican restaurant in the city of Aurora, and most of their dishes consist of fish and other varieties of seafood. This restaurant does quench that fishy need, but they also do have beef and chicken entrees on their menu.

Dae Gee Restaurant Review

Written Forrest Martin Illustrated by Madison Otten      I went to this Korean BBQ joint called Dae Gee that was featured on (Food Network) Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, as it was close to where we live in Westminster. (The difference between Korean BBQ versus American BBQ is that Korean has such thinly cut meat that has a quick grilling time where traditional BBQ is a slow cooking time.) This franchise has developed from one location to four since starring on ‘Triple D.’ When we went there our expectations were high, since Guy Fieri really raised the bar.
