A Holiday Date Night in Denver With a Stay at Le Méridien. Chandelier at Le Méridien. HeidiTown.com

I’m a small town girl at heart, but I love the city during the holidays and Denver is especially Christmassy at this time of year. This past weekend, we visited Denver with the intention of immersing ourselves in the holiday spirit and we accomplished our mission. Ryan and I arrived in the city around 1 p.m. and checked in early to our hotel, the brand new Le Méridien in downtown

Ryan and I hadn’t been out in the big city since the fall, so when we read that the Colorado Symphony was playing Beethoven, we decided it was time for a Denver date night. We used to frequent the Colorado Symphony quite often. In fact, for several years we bought concert packages to the CSO, giving us an excuse for a Denver date night every month. The Colorado Symphony has

Channel your inner Bob Ross at a paint while you drink studio

HeidiTown is about festivals, events and destinations in Colorado, and this post falls under the “events” category. Last month, we were invited to a friend’s birthday party at one of these new drink while you paint studios that are popping up all over the country. Google “paint & drink studios” and you’ll get about 1 million results. When we got invited to this party, I was not exactly excited. I

Avenue Q Kate & Christmas Eve

Dinner theaters often produce shows that will appeal to a mass audience, and old Broadway musicals are the norm. So when I go to dinner theater, I’m usually familiar with the production. Last weekend was the exception to that rule, and it was refreshing to have no preconceived notions about the show I was about to see at Boulder’s Dinner Theater. In the spring, we saw “Cinderella” at BDT, and

Tracy & Link Hairspray

Fort Collins, Colorado is a long way from Baltimore, Maryland and the race wars of the sixties, so will audiences connect with Midtown Arts Center’s current production? I believe they will because the themes of “Hairspray” are timeless, the music is catchy, and the cast is unforgettable. Midtown Arts Center, located in Fort Collins, Colorado, has a well-appointed, 236 seat dinner theater, as well as a banquet room where they

Foote Lagoon Concert Series is just around the corner!

This is one of my favorite events of the summer and because it’s on a Thursday night it doesn’t interfere with my crazy weekend festival schedule. I like lots of things about this festival – the proximity to downtown Loveland, the beautiful setting and the floating stage. The 2011 musical lineup for Loveland’s Foote Lagoon Concert Series has been announced and I’m very excited to see fiddle players on the

5 Best Valentine's Day Dates

Read this closely guys, because the planning for this holiday usually falls on your shoulders. Here are a few ideas from the Mayor, and I think any of these date nights will score you big points this Valentine’s Day. 1. Dinner theater – There’s a slight chance all the dinner theater joints are already booked for Valentine’s Day, but it’s worth checking. Dinner theater is an entire evening of fun

"Date Night" - Worth full price!

Rated PG13 Directed by Shawn Levy Starring Steve Carell, Tiny Fey, Mark Wahlberg, Taraji P. Henson, Jimmi Simpson Heidi Illustrious Rating: 4/5 Word of Warning: Good clean fun. Reminiscent of a comedy from the late 80s or early 90s, “Date Night” doesn’t rely on the type of “shock comedy” that has become so popular, making this one okay for the older kids, but best for a date night. The Foster

You've forgotten - you love to bowl!

If you are anything like me, you bowl about once or twice a year.   I recently bowled with my husband on a Friday  evening date night  at Sweetheart Lanes in Loveland.   I  was reminded  – I love to bowl!   I’m not good at it and my form is probably atrocious.   I don’t think I’ve ever broken a 100.   But there’s something intrinsically fun about bowling.

Berthoud alive with the sound of music, tomorrow night

Wildfire Community Arts Center‘s Eighth Annual Summer Film Festival is drawing to a close, with only two films left. Rained out for much of the season, tomorrow night the Center will be showing one of my personal favorites, “The Sound of Music.” Next Friday night’s film is “Despereaux” (August 28). It will be the last show of the season. The movies begin at dusk and are shown in the courtyard
