We love a new thing, and relative newcomer Local 46 is on its way to becoming a favorite north-side haunt. You may remember the 46th and Tennyson locale as the sight of former super dive bar The Music Box. It has retained the funky feel but cleaned the floors (hooray!), added some "it's so terrible I may need to own it" art and fits with its surroundings like a favorite pair of jeans. Throw in some food trucks and live entertainment like we had last night, and it's a party!
Tavern: Local 46 for cocktails and conversation. http://local46bar.com/
Location: 4586 Tennyson St., between Denver's Berkeley and Regis Neighborhoods
The Atmosphere is: Open, raucous, and kitschy. The outside isn't the most eye-catching - and if we didn't know it was there we…

If Ikea and Room and Board had a baby, and this baby was a restaurant, it would be Trillium. This Scandinavian inspired restaurant in Downtown Denver was nothing short of amazing. I managed to try almost everything on the entree menu by asking for bites of food from my friends under the guise that "I'm writing a blog about it." It was so worth it!
Restaurant: Trillium Denver for brunch, dinner, and happy hour.
Location: 2134 Larimer St., in Denver's Ballpark Neighborhood
The Atmosphere is: Urban, hip, chic, comfortable and just a little loud, letting you know you made the right restaurant selection considering a ton of other people made the same choice! The service was impeccable. Our server knew everything about everything on this complex menu and…

If there was ever a time to buy, it’s now. The Denver real estate market is leading the country in strength and recovery, and mortgage rates are still at a record low. The Mortgage Bankers Association does predict that rates will slowly rise over the next year, but still remain well under the rates of years past.
What does this mean to you, the average homeowner? The current lack of inventory creates a seller's market, but the low mortgage rates help your buying dollars go farther with a new home.
Let’s look at a recent Dwell Denver sale as a case study:
The Combs family bought their first 3 br/2 ba home in Littleton in 2006 for $234,000, and then the market fell. They lived in the property for the next 4 years, making a few improvements but…

Consumer sentiment regarding the housing market continues its modestly positive trend, according to results from Fannie Mae’s August 2012 National Housing Survey.
Supported by the expectation that home prices will rise in the next year and more saying it is a good time to sell, Americans have maintained a cautious but improving view of the housing market and homeownership.
attitudes toward the housing market remain modestly positive, despite
signs of increased concern over the direction of the economy,” says Doug
Duncan, senior vice president and chief economist of Fannie Mae.
So how does this consumer sentiment hold up on our fair city? Well, we have surpassed that sentiment in many ways and we have the market to prove…

The last meeting of the original Tuesday Night Supper Club was celebrated at Lucky Pie in LoDo. The weather was warm, we sat on the patio and wished our friend Jeff the best in his new San Franciscian adventures. Don't worry, we have created Tuesday Night Supper Club 2.0 so there will be plenty of material for future neighborhood hotspot blogs!
Restaurant: Lucky Pie for bruch, lunch, dinner and happy hour
Location: 1610 16th Street, in Denver's LoDo neighborhood

"10 Little Piggies"
I was so in love with my own recent staycation that I have decided to make them a staple of everyday life. I may not be able to pull off a childless weekend more than a few times a year, but I can certainly find a few hours a month to pawn the darling boys off on their dad/grandparents/aunts/uncles and reset the gears somewhere fabulous.
This week I decided to explore my new southern digs and check out Old Castle Rock. Two thumbs up to any place with a small town feel, free parking, and easy freeway access.
With 2 hours to call my own, I grabbed a latte at the local Lost Coffee. Funky friendly barista, relaxed atmosphere, solid hazelnut…

Berkeley...one of Denver's best kept secrets. Well, not quite so secret any more. Known as a more affordable option to Highland with all of the amenities and access to two great parks! Here's what I love about Berkeley...
1) Tennyson St. - If Berkeley were a body, Tennyson St. would be the main artery. The shops, restaurants, galleries and all that Tennyson St. has to offer has made it a destination in NW Denver. Don't miss Hops & Pie, Comfort Cafe, Tenn St. Coffee & Books, The Giggling Green Bean and more!
2) Rocky Mountain Lake Park - Tucked in the far NE corner of Berkeley sits Rocky Mountain Lake Park surrounded by a 2+ mile walking track, sports fields and a playground. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.
3) Parisi - I have…

Hey Dwell Denver blog followers! I wanted to pick your brains about something...real estate related. I'm sure all of you are aware of the shortage of inventory we are experiencing in Denver. It's bad. We have so many clients who are either wanting to sell but have no where to go or want to buy for the first time and there just isn't anything out there! It's reached a boiling point of sorts so I thought it might be time to think outside the box. I'm starting a grass roots effort to start finding people who have houses to sell and just haven't thought about putting them on the market because they aren't aware of how things have turned since the beginning of the year.
Do you guys know of anyone in your cirlce of friends, family, coworkers,…

"Movin' on up! 10 tips for selling your home"
Sorry I’ve been a little hard to find lately – I was busy selling my house. I know! We took advantage of the current “low supply, high demand” housing market and made a kill! Our house sold in less than 48 hours at almost full asking price.
I’ve got to admit, we feel pretty grown up in our decision to take advantage of the Denver real estate market and play it in our favor. We bought low 4 years ago, made smart updates, and sold high. Then we were able to secure a ridiculously low interest rate on a loan for our dream house in Douglas County. That’s right, neighbor, we went country and got ourselves a beautiful…
