A friend first referred me to this veterinarian and I have been taking my dog and cat there for the past 5 years now. They require that all animals they see have been spayed or neutered, and offer lower cost care than other clinics, yet their care is still top quality. They also have a foundation that helps low-income families access veterinarian care for their family pets. The clinic is not as fancy as other, more expensive places I've taken my pets to. They seem to put their resources towards animal care and not their decor.
I was not pleased with the treatment my dog received at Danny's. I first started taking my dog there because I wanted to support a small, neighborhood business. I've taken my dog there more than once, and each time I left him he seemed very anxious and when I returned he was extremely eager to see me. He has never acted that way at other grooomers. The last time I took him, I later noticed dried blood and a gash in his neck. The staff did not tell me that they cut him, and it was big enough that I find it hard to believe that they didn't notice. I have decided to find a different groomer for my dog.
This is one of our family's regular places to eat. They offer good food at a reasonable price and have enough of a variety that everyone in my family can find something to eat that makes them happy. In good weather it's nice to have the option to eat outside as well. This is not a large restaurant however, so I wouldn't say it's a good fit if you're going out with a large group.
Grand China is a Chinese restaurant on Colfax in Denver that my family and I have been eating at for years. We have always been pleased with their food and their service. They have expanded their menu to include Thai food, which has made my husband very happy. My kids love the food as well and often times ask if we can go there for dinner. I highloy recommend this restaurant.
Jazzercise is a fun way to get in to shape and this Jazzercise studio has friendly, energetic instructors. They even offer babysitting 3 days a week, which allows moms to work out as well. I highly recommend this type of exercise and this particular studio.
I tried this salon at the last minute because I couldn't get into my regular salon. My highlights were growing out, and I needed a touch up. They were really great about fitting me in at the last minute, but totally underestimated the time it would take and I ended up being late for work. I did not feel confident in their ability to style my hair, but it ended up looking fine. I did not get a cut, so I can't evaluate that portion of the salon. Next time I will be more patient and wait for an opening at my regular salon.
Babooshka is a great salon. I went there because it's in my neighborhood and have been very pleased with the results. Since I have curly hair, I have learned that it's difficult to find stylists who can work with the curls, but that was not a problem at Babooshka's. They have done a great job with my color as well. I definately recommend this salon.
The Daily Scoop is a small ice cream shop that caters to the neighborhood community. Their flavor choices are limited to vanilla, chocolate and their flavor of the day, which is often times a very creative mix of flavors, but tasty. They also offer a variety of toppings that can be added to the ice cream. They encourage foot traffic and offer water and bisquits for people who walk their dogs. They also support the local elementary school, which is valuable in our neighborhood. I recommend this ice cream shop.
This is a small, family owned, authentic Mexican restaurant. The food was good and my kids were particularly impressed by their milkshakes. It's a bit challenging to find since they don't have a big sign on the restaurant, but it's definately worth it once you've found it.
Under The Umbrella is a small sandwich shop near Madison and 12th Avenue. The service is always friendly and the food is awsome. On nice days, you can sit outside and enjoy people watching, as there are many people walking by. It is a great place to meet a friend for a nice lunch.
