Table 79 Foodbar Opens 
in Steamboat Springs

Restaurateur and Owner of Destination Hospitality Restaurant Group (Aurum, Hush Concepts) opened Table79 Foodbar in the former bistro c.v. space in Steamboat, Colorado. An 84 seat, New American restaurant, the Foodbar will be a multi-seat marquis seating option offering guests the front row to hearth-style cooking. Helmed by Chef de Cuisine Natalie Neiderhofer, the menu will offer composed yet casual fare featuring more rustic and primitive cooking techniques with ingredients sourced from the Yampa Valley and Rocky Mountain Regions. The space is being designed by award-winning architects Mike Blea and Breton Lujan of Raw Creative.

Says Phil Armstrong, “Destination Hospitality is looking to fill a niche in Steamboat Springs by offering an experience-driven dining option. I’ve built my career on offering surprising and interactive dining experiences, and this is just the latest iteration. Table 79 Foodbar seeks to bring the heartbeat of the kitchen into the dining room and more fully engage the diner in the culinary experience.” Table79Steamboat.com

Local Realtor Makes Journey Of A Lifetime To Help A Family In Need

Jessica Northrop, a real estate professional in Greenwood Village, recently traveled to Masachapa, Nicaragua to build a home for a family in need. Northrop partnered with Giveback Homes, the premier social good real estate platform, and Habitat for Humanity, joining a team of 10 other Giveback Home Members and industry leaders to build a safe and sustainable structure for the Garcia family to call home.

The Garcia family includes Carla, a housewife that lives with her husband Mauricio who is suffering from kidney failure. They live with their four children and a young grandson. The family had limited resources and had to make due in an unsafe structure made of old wood and plastic. Through the work of Jessica Northrop and the rest of the team, the family will soon have a safe and sturdy place to call home. The team spent three days mixing concrete and mortar and laying cinderblocks to build the walls of the home.

“These Build Trips are such an incredible experience for real estate agents,” said Caroline Pinal, Co-founder of Giveback Homes. “We were thrilled to have Jessica Northrop join us. We would not have been able to accomplish our goal without her hard work and positive energy.”

Giveback Homes was founded with the goal of bringing a new giving model to the world of real estate. Founded by former employees of Toms, Giveback Homes saw an opportunity to infuse social responsibility into the real estate industry. The company has grown rapidly over the past three years and has built over 50 homes in areas where housing is desperately needed including Nicaragua, Haiti, El Salvador, Bolivia, and throughout the U.S.
