Whether it is a friend, partner, family member or spouse, when two creative minds collaborate something magical happens. Lucky for us, creative minds have been hard at work collaborating right here in Denver. There is something to be said for working in pairs. After all, aren’t two heads are better than one? Please join The Scout Guide Denver as we highlight some favorite local pairs.
Owned and operated by husband and wife team, Chef Tom Coohill and wife, Diane, the award-winning Coohills is the only restaurant in Denver that sits along the Cherry Creek River. An intimate dinner for 2 or an event for 150, Coohills’ sumptuous gourmet recipes delight with a menu full of fresh ingredients sourced from local and regional farms. From The Chef’s Counter where the mastery of Chef Coohill creates a custom tasting menu for you and your guest(s) to a New Year’s Eve featuring FOREVER IN BLUE JEANS: Neil Diamond Tribute Band and special menu, Coohills is one simply delicious pairing.//Call for reservations.
Shopping for undergarments can be a little daunting (lingerie shopping, anyone?). However, it can be a fun and exciting experience – if it is a SOL Lingerie experience. Owned by a pair of sisters, Cindy and Jeanie, SOL provides unsurpassed customer service, fashioning each and every “SOL Girl” to feel special. Customers are what inspire them. SOL’s customers are not defined by age, size or income level. SOL’s customers are “women who are young at heart who want to look and feel their best, one that celebrates the strength, uniqueness and beauty within each of us. That’s what being a SOL Girl all is about.”
The team completes extensive training, from learning the secrets of bra fitting to knowing the distinctions of each style and brand. Included in SOL’s grand selection of bras, lingerie, sleep and shape wear are beauties from Marie Jo, Lise Charmel, Natori and Hanky Panky – something for everyone (there are items for men too)! SOL will tailor your underpinnings to fit comfortably, including the proper maternity, nursing or specialty garments. With SOL, there are no more guessing games. Any way you look at it, SOL is a winning pair!
It’s not often you find a fine jewelry line that combines vintage, contemporary, rustic and earth’s ravishing elements. Two sisters, Shawn and Sam, had a desire to design jewelry conveying their personal experiences in nature, the arts and architecture. Welcome to the wonderment that is The Woods Fine Jewelry. Perhaps a better word is sublime. The Woods’ pieces have been known to leave one in awe as each piece is no less than divine. The Woods is known for combining various materials – such as wood and uncut diamonds – creating truly rare, alluring pieces.
Over the past few years, the Denver-based Woods has collaborated with various designers. In their latest collection, The Woods has paired with Ian Kennedy, a Native American vintage artifact dealer with Ruby + George Aesthetic. The result: a limited edition collection with a “new spin on vintage southwestern jewelry” incorporating The Woods’ intricate, mystical details and bohemian vibe with select, vintage pieces from the Ruby + George collection.
The pairing of The Woods and Ruby & George Aesthetic rings as one incredibly chic collaboration (actually two collaborations and we love both of them)!//PIECES ARE LIMITED: The Woods and Ruby + George collaboration items are available exclusively through Distractions and Ruby + George.

A trip to The Old Map Gallery is a true foray around the world. Having led this unique “Denver Meets the World” expedition for the past 12 years, Curtis Bird and his wife, Alanna, have filled The Old Map Gallery with quite a treasury of maps, guides and novelties that date as far back as the late 1500s. Cultured and insightful, both Curtis and Alanna employ their expertise of world geography, history, politics and art to apprise and delight both collectors and inquisitive customers alike.
Acquired from estate sales, auctions and the like, the ardent collector or enthralled passerby, may find themselves coveting an antique map of Iceland, (Iceland) Tabula Islandiae Auctore Georgio Carolo Flandro (Blaeu, W., c. 1630), A Copernican or True System of the Universe (Fenning, 1798), an engraving showing the situation of our solar system as it was understood, or a map of the French wine country Dept. De L’Ardeche (Levasseur, 1847). Yet, The Old Map Gallery offers so much more than maps. It is truly a diverse assembly of riches including flags, atlases, books, nautical charts and even some magical, mystical finds. We think this pair sits on top of the world!
Enjoy a perfect pairing – tell them Scout sent you
