Taste the Chicken Parm Sandwich at DiFranco’s in Denver

December 17, 2014 12:03 pm

DiFranco’s concept sounds simple enough, combine fast and friendly service with cuisine created with seasonal, locally sourced ingredients. The question is can gourmet quality food be created with the speed and volume of a delicatessen? In 2013, DiFranco’s was awarded "Denver’s Best Italian Restaurant" by the city’s largest alterative weekly, Westword.

Just about everything is made in-house, and past menus have included dishes as complex as seared polenta with local balsalmic glazed shiitake mushrooms, caramelized onions, egg, and arugula, to a chicken parm sandwich. The menu covers all the bases, from fresh salads to desserts, Prosecco, wine, and craft beer. The Wednesday “Date Night Special” is unbeatable, two salads, entrees, cannoli, and a bottle of wine for just $40. Happy hour lasts all day Monday.

Check DiFranco’s site for the current menu, specials, and events.

These Hiking Apps Can Help You Explore the Great Outdoors

December 10, 2014 12:03 pm

Many people love hiking because it offers an opportunity to get outdoors and leave technology behind, but a number of new smartphone apps aim to make your hiking experience even better. Lace up your boots, grab a canteen, and set out into the wilderness with these great hiking apps.

Discover all of the hiking and biking trails in any given area with the AllTrails app. This app features detailed maps of your area with the national parks and hiking trails marked with pinpoints, and it even provides lists of information about each place. Reviews written by fellow hikers make it even easier to choose the perfect trail for your activity.

Map My Hike
If you’re an avid hiker, keep tracks of each hike you take with the Map My Hike app. Log details like pace, route, distance, and elevation in the convenient log book, and even keep track of the calories you burned if you hike to lose weight.

Walkmeter GPS Pedometer
This app operates just like a pedometer for your smartphone, but it also offers a number of other information as well. Start the GPS when you begin your hike, and the app will provide graphs and charts of your calories, pace, and distance at the end of the trail.
