Golden Triangle cookies
Beloved 16th Street bakery Santa Fe Cookie Co now has a satellite in the Golden Triangle. At Black Crow Gallery, more than 10 daily cookies, plus cupcakes, brownies, cakes, and coffee are available for purchase along with local goods and art, Westword reports. The offshoot business is a new project by Alexis McLean, who is Santa Fe Cookie Co founder Deborah Kuehn’s niece. Kuehn gained her reputation as the “cookie lady” after 30 years of baking in Denver. She passed away last year. At the gallery, McLean continues her aunt’s tradition of honor-system cookie sales, at two for $1. [Westword]
From one of the forces behind The Way Back, American Grind, Method Roasters, and Wendell’s comes a new Carbondale destination with a restaurant and guest rooms. The Way Home is the latest project by Kade Gianinetti, according to 5280. Gianinetti is a Carbondale native with big plans for the former Six89 space on the town’s Main Street. The century-old house is being completely refurbished to include an outdoor bar patio with fire pits, a lounge, sunroom, two dining rooms, and two upstairs guest rooms. Once it opens in August, Gianinetti hopes The Way Home will be a community space complete with backyard barbecues and film festivals.
