La Cour French Bistro & Art Bar!

Hey Guys!!

I want to tell you about a cute place that opened up on South Broadway's Antique Row called La Cour! It's a French Bistro and Art Bar! I tell people it's like "eating dinner in a French Art Gallery". They opened up this year and I love that they are on Antique Row!

The Monley family and friends, with members who live in Denver and in Paris, decided to share their love affair with France -- and the way that fine food, drink and art can elevate a person’s senses by opening La Cour! 

They have revolving art gallery pieces and do a monthly live urban art mural painting outside which will be done THIS SUNDAY!

They have a beautiful place inside and a nice outdoor patio. Here is their menu!

Their happy hour menu is super affordable and they have some delicious drinks!

My friends at La Cour offered my blog readers a good deal! Spend $10.00 and get $10.00 so come and visit them! Just print out my special coupon and go see them. It's super cute!!

Here's The Thing: I Don't Care.

As anyone who knows me will tell you, my arch nemesis is none other than the Croc. What I enjoy more than anything though is this reputation for hating them. It's so fun! I have said before that Crocs have no business in public and unless you’re wearing them as a gardening shoe or for some other, purely practical reason (I know some people with foot problems find them to be the only shoes they can wear, for instance, and obviously no one’s going to blame them for that), I can see no good side to them. At all. Sure, I’ve heard all of the “but they’re SO! COMFY!” arguments, but here’s the thing: I don’t care.

Because LOTS of shoes are “comfy”, without looking like something the garden gnome just kicked off. FOR EXAMPLE! I own at least five pairs of Sperrys. They are so comfortable, affordable, and fun. My absolutely favorite is the Sperry Pennington Loafer. I have these in hot pink and neon green. #getyousome if you are looking for something fun, upscale, and affordable.

But anyway. This post isn't really about Crocs - it's about these new shoes by Zaha Hadid for Lacoste. They’re leather which is way cooler than plastic. They are ugly but still alluring. I would feel like a super hero.Check these things out! They retail for a cool $850.00

What I DO like about them is that they are a special edition from a series of Architects who designed shoes. That's what's actually interesting about them, they are very artistic. I could actually see these on a wall, just not on a foot. If you have enough money to buy these anyway, consider hiring me as a personal shopper. I can spend your money like an Arab Sheik and you won't look like an escapee from Comic Con.

Have a great Tuesday Lovelies!
