    Best Restaurant in Denver

    Its name is Osteria Marco. Located on Larimer Street in Larimer Square (arguably the cutest street in Downtown Denver) is this 11-year-old restaurant. Inspired by the owner’s son Marco, and the original butcher shop in its location, Osteria Marco is an Italian dream, seriously. When you enter you head down to the dining room, which feels more like a cellar. Its cool, dark and the mood gets you ready for something exciting. First off, Osteria Marco makes their own cheese and meats. That being said, we got a cheese and meat plate! It was the chefs pick, so this was what we got.

    LaGuardia Centurion lounge

    The American Express Centurion Lounges are our favorite group of lounges we have been to yet!  We feel very spoiled when we go to any other lounges that aren’t on the same level as The Centurion Lounges. The Centurion Lounge in LaGuardia was our second Centurion lounge to check off the list and just like the rest of the family, they did not disappoint. https://www.thecenturionlounge.com/locations/LGA/ While every Centurion Lounge is unique, we felt there were some pluses and minuses at The LaGuardia Centurion Lounge. The layout of this lounge is in two sections. Behind the front desk, there is the business lounge with computer bar, printer, fax and semi-private workspaces.…
