Dine in Estes Park BBQ, Buffets & Pizza, Pizza, Pizza. HeidiTown (12)

Food is probably the last thing on your mind on the day after Thanksgiving. However, it might be that you’d rather not hear about turkey or mashed potatoes, so I will avoid those subjects. Finding a restaurant in Estes Park isn’t hard, but finding a place with good food and service is another matter. This is, after all, a touristy village and good staff members are hard to find in

Guest post by Angela Rose If you live anywhere near Denver, Colorado, or are at all familiar with the world of craft beer, you’ve probably heard of the Great American Beer Festival (GABF) organized by the Brewers Association (BA). Now in its 38th year, the GABF is the nation’s largest ticketed beer festival and commercial competition, drawing together hundreds of breweries and tens of thousands of beer lovers for three

Eating all the Tacos in Colorado Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown (2)

Here’s the deal, tacos are my favorite. Unless you have just arrived in HeidiTown, you’re probably well aware of my passion for this particular food. I also love green chiles and I don’t care if they come from Colorado or New Mexico, but I digress. This post is about all about tacos.  By the way, if you aren’t watching “Taco Chronicles” on Netflix, do it. It’s like this show was

A Quick Trip to One Block of Glenwood Springs, Colorado. HeidiTown (4)

Where can you find, Indian food, a good night’s sleep and breakfast in one block? In Glenwood Springs, of course.  We ventured farther than one block on our summer trip to Glenwood Springs. We went to the hot springs pool because it is tradition, but we didn’t go anywhere else.  RELATED: New this Summer at Glenwood Hot Springs Pool, Colorado You see, I experienced a mind-numbing migraine while in town,

Where to Sleep & What to Eat in Ouray, Colorado. HeidiTown (6)

It had been a few years since we’d visited, and as we pulled into Ouray, late on a Thursday afternoon, I realized how much I’d missed this little village. Ouray encapsulate everything that is special about Colorado. We were spending the first night at Hotel Ouray, a beautifully remodeled building on the corner of 6th Ave. and Main Street. It’s perfectly located across from Mouse’s Chocolates, a must-stop for a

Eating Our Way through Craig, Colorado in Moffat County HeidiTown (4)

Wherever we travel, food is always a big part of the experience. Even when we’re in a non-foodie town, we make a point to find great spots to eat and we find them everywhere. Craig is located in Northwest Colorado. It is east of Dinosaur National Monument and 50 minutes west of Steamboat Springs. In this small town, cows outnumber humans and that’s the way most people like it. This

A Taco Tour & Mezcal Outing in Greeley, Colorado. HeidiTown (18)

People really, really like tacos. I learned this when I wrote a little piece in November called, “When it Come to Tacos, Longmont, Colorado is Winning.” This post caused quite the stir and was even picked up by Google News. Readers left impassioned messages for me on this blog, on Facebook and on Twitter. I had not predicted this sort of passion around a small tortilla stuffed with meat. Residents

Full-service at The Sebastian & Luxury Dining at Leonora in Vail 4. HeidiTown.com

We ate our way through Taste of Vail, but the delicious food didn’t stop at the festival. We were lucky to be staying at The Sebastian, a full-service resort property at the edge of Vail Village. The hotel offers the quintessential Vail experience with a gorgeous spa, fitness center, pool and hot tub area, ski valet, kids’ camp and more. We arrived on a Thursday afternoon, and after the valet

Tasty Bites from Taste of Vail 2019 & My Thoughts on Greek Wine (10)

Taste of Vail is a whirlwind of wine and food. I ate so much that on Saturday night, after the Grand Tasting, I dreamed about eating food. This year I decided to highlight the best bites of Taste of Vail according to me. The only professionally judged portion of the event is The American Lamb Cook-off & Aprés Ski Tasting on Thursday and I will list the winners accordingly. This
