CONTEST CLOSED This past summer, one of the most standout events I attended was the 1940s WWII Ball. My husband and I didn’t really know what to expect, but by the end of the night we both agreed that this was the most fun we’d had at an event in a long time, and we go to A LOT of events. This is the sort of evening out that creates

My Handle Bar phone number photo

There are some things that just go together – peanut butter and jelly, Ginger Rodgers and Fred Astaire and biking and beer. Now there is a Colorado company combining those last two things into a very fun outing. I first heard of My Handle Bar on Twitter, and I got rather overly excited about the whole idea. Our connection on Twitter resulted in the Mayor of HeidiTown.com and some Town

1940s WWII Era Ball event poster

Boys, put on your zoot suit and winged tipped shoes and girls, get out the hot iron. It’s time for the 1940s WWII Era Ball at Boulder Airport. This unique event caught my eye several years ago, and last year we bought tickets for my in-laws to attend. They had a blast, so this year, the Mayor will be putting on her dancing shoes and joining the party! The 1940s

A Note from the Mayor: Keeping up with Colorado summer fun

If you are anything like me, you plan ahead – especially when it comes to the busy summer months.

Grove of Aspen Trees in Colorado

As most of my loyal readers know HeidiTown is not a calendar of events. It is impossible for me to preview every event going on in Northern Colorado (let alone state wide). If only I could clone myself! I’ve decided to compile a list, every Friday morning, of all the  upcoming weekend events I was unable to preview, but would have liked to preview. Fall in Colorado is fabulous and

The Flyin' A's land in Colorado

Colorado  will be  lucky to experience two upcoming performances by this husband/wife duo out of Texas. Hilary Claire Adamson and Stuart Adamson make up the Flyin’ A’s, a name that comes from Stuart Adamson’s family cattle brand registered in Texas’ Jones County at the turn of the century.

Boulder's Dinner Theater: "Singin' in the Rain," literally

by, Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer   What is better than dinner out followed by theater? Never having to leave your seat. Only 26 miles form Berthoud, the Boulder’s Dinner Theater is a short drive away, and if you’ve never been, you are truly missing a memorable experience. Boulder’s Dinner Theater was established in 1977, and their actors and actresses have long and impressive resumes. Many have performed in New York, Chicago, on
