I bet some of you guessed after our women’s issue hit your mailbox in May that the gentlemen’s turn was right around the corner. Yes, guys, we couldn’t forget about you. In fact, gentlemen, we’ve jam-packed this issue with quite a few of your favorite things, so we’re confident it’ll be impossible not to find something (or five things) you love.

When it comes to “love,” our town has a lot of it (Exhibit A: it’s in our name). We were lucky enough to chat with three influential men in the community about what makes this place unique—including future plans and the direction this town is going. If you weren’t already proud of where you live (and you should be, by the way), you definitely will be after reading “In It to Win It.”

If the old adage is true (that one about men’s hearts, paths and stomachs), then we’ve got one word for you: burgers. For some of the best beef in town, hustle the fam into the minivan and head to Bones’ Burgers in Montgomery. Loveland local Curt “Bones” Bonekemper takes it all to the next level not only with scrumptious,  juicy, quality beef but also by piling everything high with local ingredients. If your mouth isn’t watering by the end of the article, we’ve done something wrong.

Are you the “Bones” of your neighborhood, always whipping up the perfect patty for every patio party? Then perhaps you need a space that’s grill-worthy of your masterpieces. Donnie Powell of Finer Lawn and Landscaping can build you the barbecue of your dreams (and more). Read “Brick by Brick” and then picture a hot summer day, all of your neighbors gathered on your new patio, you flipping dogs and burgers on your new custom built-in barbecue. I can almost hear the sizzle of meat cooking right now … 

Let’s take this daydream a step further because maybe your outdoor space needs a killer TV or weather-proof speakers. Don’t worry—we’ve got you covered. Alamo Electronics gives us the scoop on how to make your entertaining space, well, truly entertaining. The latest in Sonos speakers, weather-resistant televisions and screens that are literally works of art—they have it all and can install it all worry-free.

So, gentlemen (and ladies, too!), sit back, relax and enjoy this issue. We cooked up some really good stuff—just for you.
