Oscar party at the Kress outside pic

If you’ve been around HeidiTown for more than a couple years, you’ll remember that I used to write movie reviews here, and I’m a bit of a film buff. I absolutely LOVE the Oscars. I am one of “those people,” and I start watching as soon as the red carpet is rolled out and the limos start arriving. Last year, I ran a similar contest here, and the winners documented

Your ticket to the Battle of the Haunted Houses gets you into both Destination Terror and

The BrewDogs of Colorado

Here in Colorado, certain things just go together – bikes and beer, hikes and beer, climbing and beer, rafting and beer, skiing and beer, snowboarding and beer, sledding and beer, and dogs and beer.  This might explain why the Great American Beer Festival, grand-daddy of all beer festivals, is held yearly in Denver. The GABF starts this Thursday and runs through Saturday, October 1.  In honor of this enormous beer

Summer is quickly coming to a close… were you able to make the most of it?  I certainly hope so. Here’s another chance to enjoy the last moments of summer with some delicious wine, food and music. It’s the 4th Annual WineDown the Summer at  Chapungu Sculpture Park in Loveland, Colorado. This sculpture park is an oasis just east of the Promenade Shops at Centerra, and the perfect place to

It's a gnarly beer festival giveaway!

There is nothing HeidiTown residents (and tourists) like more than free beer and it’s time, once again, to give some away. The 3rd Annual Gnarly Barley Brew Festival is Saturday, August 6 at the Larimer County Fair at The Ranch in Loveland Colorado. This year’s event will be bigger and better than ever with 24 breweries attending. Food and beer pairings will be available again this year presented by Beer

Spirits at Sunset logo

This 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

Fly Fishing RMNP

Father’s Day is less than two weeks away, so I thought it was the perfect time for this giveaway. Fly-fishing is a popular Colorado pastime, and for good reason. The Colorado Rockies provide some of the most pristine rivers in the world, and some of the best are in Rocky Mountain National Park. Coloradoan Steve Schweitzer started hiking and fishing RMNP eleven years ago. He kept meticulous notes about his

Greeley Blues Jam 2011

I never cease to be amazed at the sheer amount of quality live music available in Northern Colorado. Music festivals happen here year round from Fort Collins to Greeley. On June 10, one of Colorado’s most anticipated music events will kick off. The Greeley Blues Jam is a nationally recognized blues festival held every year at Island Grove Arena in Greeley, Colorado. The Greeley Chamber of Commerce and the City
