1. Learn about Dotsero’s new Stoneyard Distillery.

“Dotsero is known to most as a sleepy residential community, a gateway to Glenwood Canyon, or simply as a sign that flashes by on I70,” wrote Melanie Wong of the Vail Daily. “However, lifelong valley resident Max Vogelman hopes to add something to that list — boutique rum destination.”

2. Learn about a Colorado author whose books landed on Amazon’s Top 100 list.

According to Randy Wyrick of the Vail Daily: “After an award-winning career in journalism and marketing — she [NLB Horton] cut her teeth writing the bridal page, obits and everything else at the Dallas Times-Herald — and a graduate degree from Dallas Theological Seminary, count “novelist” as Horton’s second career — or third, or fourth.”

3. Learn about a variety of yoga-themed destination events hosted around Colorado and beyond.

“Your yoga mat is portable — you can roll it up, hold it under an arm, zip it into a bag or throw its carrier strap over a shoulder,” reported Kim Fuller. “Your practice is made to move you, on and off your mat, so here’s a rundown of how to diversify the places you do your poses.”

4. Learn about the Mass Roots app, which is the marijuana industry’s first IPO.

According to Phil Lindeman of the Summit Daily News: “A social network platform for cannabis users, MassRoots, on April 9 secured the first initial public offering for any company with ties to the marijuana industry. The 2-year-old Denver-based startup is valued at $45 million, with stock now traded publicly through the OTC Markets Group marketplace at 10 cents per share.”

5. Moby will headline the Snowmass Wanderlust festival, July 2-5.

“Moby, who has visited the Roaring Fork Valley in recent summers to speak at the Aspen Ideas Festival and perform at Belly Up, also is listed among the speakers at the even,” a news release stated. “He is joined in the music lineup by soul singer Lee Fields & the Expressionists, the High and Mighty Brass Band, ambient techno DJ Bluetech and others.”
