Sister of Swing at BDT - HeidiTown 2

“Sisters of Swing” at Boulder’s Dinner Theater Most people are familiar with Andrew Sisters’ impersonators, but the actresses on stage at Boulder’s Dinner Theater become more than simple caricatures of the famous trio. The musical, “Sisters of Swing,” gives the audience a glimpse beyond the makeup and stockings and into the lives of three, real women, who lived, laughed, loved and endured heartbreak, just like the rest of us.

Spring has sprung in Colorado and it is a lovely thing indeed. The streets of our small towns are lined with blossoming trees and purple and yellow flowers are sprouting in patches along roadsides and in fields. Everywhere you look it’s green. Despite allergies, it’s one of my favorite seasons in Colorado. In part one of May’s radio segment on KRFC 88.9 FM I chat about my upcoming trip to

This is the second post in my #TravelTuesday, Tip of the Day series. If you’re anything like us, you get so caught up in getting to your destination that sometimes you forget to enjoy the journey. Today when I travel, I often have an itinerary, and when you’re in my line of business, it’s usually pretty full, and there’s not much time for messing about. We jump in the car,

I’m planning to write several posts about our trip to Vail, but I had to start with this one. I’ve lived in Colorado for 14 years, and while I’ve been stuck overnight in Vail due to a pass closure, I had never explored Vail properly until earlier this month. As some of you know, I was in town covering Taste of Vail, an event that should definitely be on your

For the first time since the HeidiTown segment aired on KRFC 88.9 FM, way back in August, 2011, I have missed recording a segment. I was unable to record the first show in April due to an unexpected emergency eye surgery that I wrote about previously on HeidiTown here. Anyway, I’m back and this radio segment covers a little of what’s happening this April, although I also spent some time

If you love food, and who doesn’t, you won’t want to miss the Taste of Loveland. For just $40 you’ll be able to spend hours tasting food from 30 different restaurants. Plus, you can taste beer and wine from over 40 vendors. Yes, it’s an evening of gluttony, but you’ll be indulging for a great cause, and that makes it okay. This year is the 9th Annual Taste and it

I’ve decided to throw out some occasional #TravelTuesday tips here on HeidiTownwhen the mood strikes me. After our weekend in Vail, the mood struck. After several years of extensive travel around Colorado I’ve come to realize that the best way to get to know a place, to really get to know a place, is to stay for three nights. So this is my #TravelTuesday tip for today: To really get

I’m back!!!  Surgery went well and although recovery was rough – a week and a half of not being able to see well enough to do anything, not even read – I am back to the land of the seeing. Thank you for all the comments, tweets, Facebook posts, texts and emails of support. It truly meant a lot to know that so many people were pulling for me. Last
