Win tickets to Spirits at Sunset at Summerfest in the Rockies in Loveland, Colorado

Spirits at Sunset logoThis year, Summerfest in the Rockies will kick off on July 8, 2011 with Spirits at Sunset. This is a twist on their usual wine tasting event. With a unique new distillery now open in Loveland, as well as a new brewery, the organizers thought it would be fun to highlight these two small businesses.

The evening will be an interactive beer and spirits tasting with drinks provided by Dancing Pines Distillery and Grimm Brothers Brewhouse (two of the Mayor’s favorites!). The soiree will feature food by Taste Catering infused with liquors from DP and beers from Grimm. Dessert will be provided by I Dream of Cupcakes. After Midnight, an award winning jazz and swing band, will set the mood for this spectacular evening.

Guests at this event will witness the unveiling of the newest Β Loveland HeART, sponsored by Ozzie’s Body Shop.

This event will be held Friday, July 8, at the Foote Lagoon in downtown Loveland, Colorado from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. Admission to Spirits at Sunset is $35/person and $55/couple, and tickets can be purchased here.

I’m very excited to be giving away a pair of tickets to this exclusive event. Just leave a comment telling me why you’d like to attend Spirits at Sunset. A winner will be chosen at random on Friday, June 24 at 3 p.m.

Check out all the fun in store at this year’s Summerfest in the Rockies here.

      *gasp* You must try DP & Grimm!!! I hope you win, but if you don’t you need to go on a little brewery and distillery tour. They are quite near one another. Just be sure to bring a DD. LOL! Good luck!

    Because we have a 4-year old and we really, really need a night out. And while any parent know that’s reason enough, we we would LOVE to try all the new sips (haven’t tried any) and jazz/swing (and cupcakes!!) couldn’t be more perfect!

      AWWW!! Congrats! We just celebrated 9 years. Kept trying to figure out if it was eight or nine. I guess that’s when you know you’ve been married for a long time. πŸ™‚ Tell you husband that the Mayor of HeidiTown says THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!

      Good luck!!!

      That’s a good question about the wine… as far as I know it’s just beer and liquor. So does this mean I should take your name out of the hat??? πŸ˜‰

      Just kidding.

    It sounds like a lot of fun. Beer, spirits, jazz and it’s a growing event that supports Loveland? My wife and I can go to the library, work out at Chilson and then walk over to a tasting. I’m all in!

    Well being the social butterfly that I am, I would love to attend Spirits at Sunset, for the great people, great beers and great spirits. I truly appreciate the products these amazing businesses put out: Tasty beers from Grimms Brother Brewery, Amazing liquor from Dancing Pines (Have you Tried a Dark & Stormy at the tasting room), fantastic food from Taste, Sweet treats from I Dream of Cupcakes, tappable tunes from After Midnight and a great Loveland experience from Engaging Loveland and all the volunteers that make Summerfest in the Rockies a huge success!

    I promise to represent the Mayor and HeidiTown.com in a respectable mannor!

    Thanks for the chance to say thanks to everyone that helps put this together!

    I would love to win tickets for Spirits at Sunset because I wholeheartedly support the City of Loveland, andÒ€¦I am a big fan of Grimm Brothers (Master Thief brew rocks). There are so many wonderful events in Loveland and the events held at the Foote Lagoon are always fantastic. I work for a non-profit that gives assistance to small Loveland businesses. I am generally working so hard, that I forget to take a break and enjoy all that Loveland has to offer. This is a great reminder to get out and have fun.

      Loveland does have a lot to offer, especially during the summer. I think a lot of Northern Colorado peeps forget how great the town really is! Good luck Mary Ann!

    Wow! A night out?! That would be so awesome. Hubby and I really don’t get out much. We do love and support Grimm Brothers (and who doesn’t dig cupcakes and jazz? Yum!!) Personally, I’m excited to check out the new Loveland HeART (love those hearts!).
    Thanks for the chance! πŸ™‚

      Haven’t tried Grimm or DP? *gasp* Well, if you don’t win, I will take you on a little tour myself. They are two of my favorite places and owned by some truly great people!!! πŸ™‚ Good luck!

        Now a tour of Heiditown, that sounds exciting. Other than Grimm’s, Dancing Pines and Foote Lagoon, where else might the stops be? Can we make it a bike tour? Or a Limo tour? Is this another contest in the works?

    Ooooh, oooh, oooh, pick me, pick me! I should win because I moved from Longmont to Pueblo 6 months ago…Enough said, right?! I could really use a weekend up north with good beer, good wine, good food, and GOOD people. Thank you for picking me πŸ˜‰

      Ah ha! That is a pretty darn good reason. Thanks for entering Timmie. I need to make a visit to Pueblo because I feel the need to indulge in a slopper. Have you tried one yet? That meal has my name written all over it. I heart green chili.
      Thanks for stopping by HeidiTown and good luck!!!

    I’d like to win because I can’t afford to do these awesome events right now but desperately want to go to them (and I want to try Grimm Brothers badly!).

    I have a husband who is in the hospitality business and currently works about a bazillion hours a week. Ok, maybe a hundred… it’s still a lot. He never gets a break, nor do I who works outside my home, inside my home, and volunteers like mad for my kiddos school. We could both really use a great night out, and I have heard wonderful things about Summerfest. Keeping fingers crossed you pick us out of the hat!

    My husband and I will be having our 6th anniversary that weekend and would love the chance to have something to do. Plus I must introduce him to Grimm Bros. and Dancing Pines. Especially since he is now newly employed in the Loveland area – he truly needs to get familiar with the local scene. πŸ™‚

    With Rob and I both running small businesses, and having two kiddos at home, we never, and I mean never, have time for a date! We love Grimm, and he’s a fan of Dancing Pines (I’ve never tried anything from there). Combine that with jazz and cupcakes (and a chance to scope out the competition :)), and we have a perfect excuse to have the grandparents watch the kids!!!

    I have had the dancing pines cocktails. Wonderful! Not a wine fan, so I love the change in offerings. I’d like to go because…. well… beer and rum of course!!
