If you’re looking for some homegrown goodness, you’ve got to stop by Mississippi Studios. Built from the ground up by Portland musicians, you can tell they’ve poured their hearts and souls into the foundation of this place. Not only was it created by artists, it was created for artists.

Being part of such a big, thriving city, this neighborhood gem had a distinctive charm. It was intimate and cozy without being exclusive. I felt like a local there, surrounded by good people enjoying good drinks and amazing music. The acoustics in this place were unlike anything I had ever experienced, causing my bones to vibrate along to the delicious beats.

And speaking of delicious, the burger I devoured at Mississippi Studio’s restaurant, Bar Bar was nothing other than delectable. The Angry Rhino BBQ Burger is a must-try for all of my carnivorous friends.

From cultivating great talent to cultivating great eats, the guys at Mississippi Studios have made it their mission to give the community an unparalleled experience. Want to know more? Stop by 3939 N Mississippi Avenue or check out http://www.mississippistudios.com/

Party Anyone?! Kork-Ease Mod Party @BuffaloExchangeColorado

  • Kork-Ease + MOD forever!

    Kork-Ease + MOD forever!

Dress in your favorite Mod minis, color-blocked shifts, slim-cut suits, geometric prints and fabulously fringed eyelashes — think your favorite Twiggy, Beatles or decade-of-love looks – and come ready to party like we’re living‘ life in the 60′s, again! The Mod party is happening in the Kork-Ease POP Boutique — the Buffalo Exchange Colorado gallery space Todd Colletti, store owner, has transformed into an early ’60s Biba-inspired concept shop for the month-of-November Kork-Ease shoe shopping event. Complete with gold metallic walls, shag carpet and a specially-commissioned POP art wall mural created by Justin Schmidt — the gallery is designed to transport you straight onto the streets of early ’60s London Abingdon Road — made famous for changing the way youth culture shopped for individualist fashion during the decade‑of‑love.

Party-goers who share their favorite looks or selfies from the event on Instagram using the hash tag #korkeasePOP, and get the most likes, will win a pair of the iconic Kork-Ease platform shoe of the Sixties — the Ava! Details, rules and regulations on the Instagram contest can be found on Buffaloexchangecolorado.com, and will also be posted on site during this outta-sight vintage fashion event.  Along with the iconic Ava platform shoe, stop in to experience and purchase new styles from the Kork-Ease Fall 2014 Collection.

On November 15 from 6:00pm – 9:00pm, show the world how you pay homage to this hyper-cool, revolutionary decade. The Mod Party will be sponsored by Martini & Rossi, and open to guests 21 years and older. Kork-Ease will be filming the event for a music video, to be released on korkease.com early in 2015.

For more information on the Kork-Ease Pop Boutique concept shop at Buffalo Exchange Colorado, or on the groovy Mod party, please visit http://bit.ly/korkeasePOP or buffaloexchangecolorado.com. All Kork-Ease boutique events throughout the month of November will take place at the Buffalo Exchange Colorado 51 Broadway, Denver location.

Kork-Ease POP Boutique @ Buffalo Exchange Colorado

The shoe that defined a generation of footwear fashion during the decade of love, and stood in line at Studio 54, is debuting at the gallery at Buffalo Exchange Colorado. The gallery will transform into a righteous Sixties Biba-inspired Kork-Ease POP Boutique featuring our iconic Kork-Ease platform shoe, as well as styles from our fall 2014 collection.

Local artisans, Fin Art and Justin Schmidt, have descended upon Buffalo Exchange Colorado at 51 Broadway in Denver to transform the gallery into a modern-day interpretation of Biba – the famous Abingdon Road London boutique known for revolutionizing the fashion landscape of the early 1960’s.

It was during the 60’s the platform shoe came into style – the independent youth culture was defining its own sense of fashion derived from street culture, and from free-spirited artists, musicians and designers. It was the simplicity, comfort and organic look of Kork-Ease designs that epitomized the earthly, natural outlook and the optimistic spirit embraced by the youth culture. During the 70’s, the platform cork wedge revolutionized the disco-chic era – it would become forever be synonymous with the era.

Let’s continue the story – celebrate with us at the Mod Party on November 15 in the Broadway store gallery as we revel in over 60 years of Kork-Ease. Dress fab and come ready for an outta sight party!
