The best advice is to make sure you are first, fully awake and wearing sensible shoes when venturing out in the early morning hours. Stay Limber and Alert But if you should slip and fall. Take the fall like you might on your mountain bike. Roll into a forward fall and remember to tuck that chin in if heading downward on your backside. Our go-to personal health expert Jane Brody adds these suggestions from How to Protect Yourself from Falls in the […]

Littleton Cares: The Alley’s Beautiful Scar Event Was a Remarkable Family Adventure.

(Littleton, Colorado): When you think about Colorado comfort food in the Fall, there’s little wonder about what the harvest from magical places like Pueblo have been yielding for almost centuries: Colorado Green Chili.

Comforting, calming and tasty. It also comes as no surprise that The Alley’s genuinely caring General Manager Tommy Scarbrough thoughtfully chose the backdrop of The Alley’s First Annual Green Chili Festival to promote funds and awareness for The Beautiful Scar Project. The turnout was breathtaking. It was standing room only. From the The Alley’s Main Street patio through the authentically local restaurant and welcoming bar. There were families with children. Smiling couples, singles […]
