In the summer months, historic Kerrytown's Aut Bar spills out onto a quiet courtyard it has nearly all to itself. Functioning as a restaurant and a bar (the second level is 21 and older only), the kitchen was formerly only open at night, But there's now a popular weekend brunch Saturday (10 a.m.- 2 p.m.) and Sunday (10a.m.-3 p.m.) For brunch, Mexican specialties are standouts, including breakfast burritos or huevos motulenos — layers of corn tortilla, eggs, and black beans with ranchero sauce, diced ham, peas and cheese on top. Even the standard omelet gets a twist, like the take-off from meat and cheese in their turkey and gouda. The Aut Bar is definitely gay-friendly, catering to the LGBT community and their friends, families, and allies.

lighter. An inviting courtyard awaits behind a wrought-iron fence to

Alternative hip-hop has never been better, that is, since the reunion of Jurassic 5. Following their 2007 break-up, it was a quiet six years for Jurassic fans, until the boys reunited for last year’s Coachella festival. After playing a few shows together, Jurassic 5 announced their “Word of Mouth Reunion Tour” earlier this year, complete with a Royal Oak pit stop. If their new song “The Way We Do It” is any indication of what’s to come for the group, fans have a lot to look forward to. In the music video, the boys, sounding better than ever, go stomping through Colorado’s infamous Red Rocks Amphitheatre in the dead of winter. Wrapped up from head to toe, they throw down lines like they were never on hiatus, showcasing their ceaseless talent.
