a little linkblogging: Rateliff ponders Baker's evolution, Crazy Mountain becomes a big brewer, Meininger's new art wall

all courtesy of Westword:

  • Crazy Mountain has moved into the newly-vacated Breckenridge Brewing facility; with this move plus their existing Edwards facility, Crazy Mountain can brew five times their 2014 production; their beers are almost never seen in Denver, so there's speculation about whether they'll also be contract-brewing or what… and will they open the brewpub? no firm announcement yet

interior of Webber Theater (Kitty's South), September 2012

Westword today quoted our 2011 article on the Webber Theater, so it seemed worth putting up this grab-shot of the interior during taken another spate of work in September 2012

this shot shows the lobby structure mostly removed, and debris being cleared from the gaping void of the slope-floored original theater space; the old proscenium is dimly visible

like Westword, we have no news on the building's fate

ampersands on Broadway #8: a new address for a dress?

detail of a child’s dress recently for sale at Compassion Thrift Store, 414 Broadway (spotted by Loretta K.)

this is our most enigmatic ampersand yet: a post-modern combination of birds in flight, dapper foxes with helium balloons, lace fringe, and the word — not the glyph — Ampersand in a typeface a step above Comic Sans; we can only imagine how this has influenced the children who’ve worn it; it may still be there waiting to be worn again

Denver Relief to set up $10M cannabis investment fund

Business: 

Baker was mentioned in the national financial news: an article on Yahoo Finance goes into the complexities of financing marijuana dispensaries and grow operations from the perspective of Denver Relief, an established Baker retail, cultivation, consulting and wellness business; Denver Relief is now putting together a $10 mllion "cannabis-focused investment fund" hoping to profit from Colorado's evolving marijuana business landscape

ampersands on Broadway #7: Ben at Happy Coffee

Ben Schweizer takes espresso orders at Happy Coffee with an ampersand on his bicep, a burr grinder and Chemex glassware in the background; Ben had a contemplative explanation for how he chose this tattoo, combining his interests in typography, etymology and literature

the form of this ampersand, combining three simple arcs and a line, seems to fit the functional minimalism of Happy Coffee’s furniture and fixtures, but surely Ben carries it with him into more chaotic settings …

the design is a Bryan Angelo Lim creation for the 2010 charity font project FontAid IV, a collection of 400 ampersands to represent the concept of “coming together"

(seventh in a series — typography on Broadway may be intimate or visible for miles; focusing on the typographic form of ampersands is both a simple delight and a way to illustrate Baker’s diversity)

ampersands on Broadway #6: a seamy ampersand at White Palace Laundrymat

White Palace Laundrymat (sic … the prevalent spelling on the internet, including on the "owner-verified" listing at Google Maps), 94 S. Broadway, is all about cleaning … except when it comes to the alley, where sign that once proclaimed with dignity, CLEANERS Laundromat & Alterations, now has an overlay of stickers, dangling wires and attention-hungry tags

ampersands on broadway #1

the casual, elegant ampersand at Hazel & Dewey looks as if it were drawn with an architect’s pen, and indeed the merchandise inside is fine functional design

(first in a series — several of Broadway's newer businesses, as well as some of Broadway’s oldest, have an ampersand in their name; focusing on the typographic form of these ampersands is both a simple delight and a way to illustrate Baker’s merchant diversity)
