Carefree Cuisine Brings Food Allergy Solutions To Littleton

in Business/Business Spotlight

It’s undeniable that food allergies and food sensitivities are a growing problem in our Littleton community. If you’re lucky enough not to have any issues personally, you’ve surely felt the impact when trying to choose a restaurant with a group of friends or as a parent when your child has a friend with food allergies sleepover. Carefree Cuisine is tucked away in the Columbine Valley Shopping Center (3615 West Bowles Ave., Littleton 80123) and was founded to help solve some of the problems associated with the rise in food allergies.

It was a combination of personal and professional experience that made the three owners decide to open Carefree Cuisine. Although the store is not officially open yet, they have a plant-based line they are offering through a subscription service with some local gyms. A protein-based line will debut closer to the end of March. In addition to its retail offerings, the business is also hoping to work with schools and hospitals. Both of which are settings that are enormously impacted by food allergies.

Confidence and peace of mind are what Carefree Cuisine delivers to its customers, in addition to great tasting food. Knowing that you can trust that the food you are eating or serving to your guests is free from the top 8 food allergens is priceless.  The top 8 food allergens that Carefree Cuisine eliminates are soy, fish, shellfish, peanuts, dairy, eggs, nuts or tree nuts, and wheat or gluten.

As a mother whose kids don’t have food allergies, I can speak from experience about how stressful it is when they have a friend over who has severe food allergies. Keeping a meal or two in the freezer from Carefree Cuisine would be a huge help in these situations.

An official grand opening date hasn’t been set yet, but What’s Up Littleton will keep you posted once a date is set.  In the meantime, you can visit the Carefree Cuisine website for more information.

Expect more flat-screen TVs for all TV sporting events, booth dining along with easy access table top seating. More space means more pool tables and dartboards, you can bet there will be leagues taking action immediately!

The Most Colorful Building In Littleton

in Arts/Business/Community

There’s so much beauty in Littleton, natural and otherwise. These murals on the Reinke Brothers building in downtown Littleton are just one example of the manmade variety. It’s the perfect time of year to go see them for yourself. You can check out the murals and pick up a Halloween costume or scare yourself silly at Reinke Brothers’ Haunted Mansion. The store is located at 5663 S Prince St, Littleton, CO 80120.

DENVER — Two Coloradans have created a smartphone app that aims to make parking easier while providing an income source for some homeowners.

Reese Barracks was inspired to create Drivewayz when he and his friends were looking for parking ahead of a football game at the University of Colorado Boulder.

“We were circling the block, round and around, couldn’t find any parking at all,” Barracks said. “Passing empty driveway after empty driveway.”

Good Things Are Brewing For The New Lariat Lodge In Ken-Caryl

in Business/Business Spotlight

Lariat Lodge II, the second Lariat Lodge Brewery, located off of C-470 and Ken Caryl Ave.,  is hoping to open on August 12th. Fingers crossed,  the final paperwork and approvals that they’re waiting on will come through on time. So, we’ll all get to enjoy some freshly brewed beer and delicious BBQ  on the 12th.

We stopped in to take a look at the renovations and talked with the owner, Debbie, about what people can expect once they open.  The renovations are almost finished, and the interior feels more open yet cozy at the same time than the former Rox.  They’ve enclosed the upstairs with a wooden half wall that should help with the acoustics of the space. The stainless steel brewing tanks are in and are four times larger than the tanks at their Evergreen location.

The menu will be the same as at the Evergreen brewery. Favorites like burgers, BBQ and fish and chips are on the menu, although they won’t be offering their brunch initially. There will be a full bar in addition to their beer offerings. Their flagship brews are their Lariat Lodge IPA, Bear Creek Blonde Ale, Angry Elk Amber Ale, and the Golden Goliath.

The greatest thing that Debbie had to say was how supportive the community has been of them during this whole process.
