Kerr-Schlaefer A couple weeks ago I walked into the Kress Cinema & Lounge in Greeley for the first time, and the  first words out of my mouth were, “How did I not know about this place?” The truth is, despite being in business for several years, I’d never heard of the Kress until the Greeley Chamber of

HeidiTown Rant: Serving breakfast, open at 8 a.m.?

I have a major complaint. If a restaurant wants to get in on breakfast service they need to open at least by 7 a.m., maybe earlier. Most people work. Yep, it’s true. And most working people need to be at work by 8 a.m. My husband and I love going out for breakfast on a weekday, especially a Monday. We are business owners, so it gives us some time to

I’d heard the 6 million dollar facility is fantastic inside and I was not disappointed; the place is outstanding. I felt like I’d just walked out of Northern Colorado and into a Broadway playhouse.   Dinner seating begins at 6 p.m. and
