The 5280 staff’s favorite things this week — includes On Havana Street’s Family Karaoke

January 31st, 2023

⛷️ If you’re looking for some favorable backcountry skiing—and are up for a 5.5-mile skin from your car—associate editor Chris Walker recommends Geneva Basin, an abandoned ski resort on Guanella Pass. He visited recently and lauds the low-angle slopes and cool remnants of the former operation, including old ski patrol huts that you can still go inside.

🍔 The Burger a la Française on the menu at Chez Maggy is well worth its $28 price, according to food editor Patricia Kaowthumrong, who was delighted to find out that the double-patty beauty comes in a pool of pepper gravy.

🛍️ Associate editor Madi Skahill was thrilled for a retail therapy spree that felt guilt-free at Judith & Joe, thanks to the Blake Street boutique’s sustainable and ethically made wares.

🎤 A couple sips of soju worked as the perfect voice-warmer for assistant food editor Ethan Pan, who recently hit the stage at Family Karaoke in Aurora with his go-to setlist of SZA, Adele, and Aretha Franklin hits.
