It has been an AMAZING year here in HeidiTown… and 2013 is going to be even better. I have so many great memories from this past year, like emceeing a freezing/cold/snowy Berthoud Oktoberfest, attending the Great American Beer Festival for the first time and speaking multiple times at Metropolitan State University. There were some real standout moments however, so without further ado, here are my Top 10 Memories from the
It’s time for another segment on KRFC 88.9 FM. Please note that there will not be a radio segment next week due to the Mayor’s crazy holiday schedule. The evolution of the HeidiTown brand over the past year has been amazing, and lots of exciting things are in store for the upcoming year. On this week’s radio show I share with the listeners some of the changes happening around HeidiTown

Party like a viking with me in Breckenridge, Colorado! For half a century the people of Breckenridge have been donning horns and participating in a huge party inspired by Ullr, the Norse God of Winter. In Europe, Ullr is the Guardian of Skiers, and the gods know I will need him during my skiing adventure in Breckenridge this season. Originally developed as a party for the people of Breckenridge, Ullr
As much as I love to travel, half the fun of a trip is planning it. It’s important not to over-plan my trips, however, because I want to leave room for exploration and discoveries. For instance, when my husband and I traveled to England for our honeymoon, I had much of the trip planned, but not every detail. There were specific places and museums on our must-see list, but we
This week’s radio show on KRFC 88.9 FM covers a bunch of stuff including the new online Masters in Tourism Program at Colorado State University, the Hospitality, Events and Tourism program at Metropolitan State University, my upcoming weekend trip to Cripple Creek, Colorado, a review of my favorite post from this fall season and a little housekeeping.

It seems rather appropriate for the Mayor of a place called HeidiTown to have a connection to the German Chamber of Commerce – Colorado Chapter.

This month’s organization came to my attention through a citizen of my little town, and I’m so glad that she shared the story with me. CafÃ© 180 is the brainchild of Julie Mihevc and Cathy Matthews.
