We had lunch at Very important Root, which was amaaaaazing. I want I might eat there the entire time! All the things on the menu was gluten-free and simply personalized to be vegan you probably have vegan preferences. At any time when I attempt a brand new restaurant, I attempt to ask the server for his or her favourite menu choice and order what they advocate. She stated the falafel wrap was her favourite, so I couldn’t wait to offer it a attempt.
It was on a housemade wrap with crunch chickpeas, fantastically spiced falafel patties, spinach, and dressing. It was the whole lot.
We additionally shared some Korean BBQ veggie wings, the ladies had grilled cheese (which got here with housemade apple sauce and a ton of fruit) and the Pilot ordered the avocado toast with poached egg.

We strolled right down to Excessive Level Creamery, which had flavors like Pineapple Upside Down Cake, Zucchini Bread, Brown Butter Pecan, Earl Gray and Shortbread, Brown Sugar Cinnamon, and Tin Cup Whiskey and Pistachio Brittle.

We took our ice lotions to a close-by park, the place the ladies took bites of their ice cream in between chasing one another, sliding and swinging.
After ice cream, we went downtown to take a look at the Beautycounter retailer!!!

It was small and intimate, with all of our beloved merchandise on the cabinets. Whenever you’re used to solely having small collections of merchandise at a time, it’s awe-inspiring to lastly see the whole lot collectively. I really like our clear and fashionable branding, and am so keen about out mission. I’m so happy with the whole lot this firm stands for, so it was thrilling to see it entrance and middle in downtown Denver. The women every acquired a lipgloss and I grabbed an additional sunscreen stick for our hikes this weekend.
