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

Road Trip Travel How to Find Great Food Along the Way. 4th Street Diner, Sagauche. HeidiTown.com

It’s easy to find great food in a big city where numerous articles have been written about the hottest new restaurants. However, when on a road trip it can be difficult to know what restaurant has good food, especially when you’re in a small town and Trip Advisor claims the best breakfast is at Perkins. I’m not saying that Perkins doesn’t make a decent breakfast, but if you’re like me,

Bologna Sandwiches & Battleship at Punch Bowl Social in Stapleton (HeidiTown) outdoor shot by Amber Boutwell

We are all a bit nostalgic right now. When “South Park” does a Member Berries episode, you know it’s true. “Member the 90s?” “I member.” Enter, Punch Bowl Social. This is a place that provides Gen X with everything they remember loving from the “good old days” and Millennials love it too because it’s all so rad. Punch Bowl Social is a Colorado company, in fact, their Stapleton location, just one-year-old,

Guest Post by Angela Rose Every fall, hordes of craft beer fans flock to the Colorado Convention Center in Denver for America’s biggest beer festival. Now in its 37th year, 2018’s Great American Beer Festival, held September 20 through 22, drew greater than 62,000 attendees eager to quaff the liquid fruits of more than 800 U.S. breweries.

Dining in Colorado, Meat & Cheese in Aspen. HeidiTown.com

I wish I were a picky eater, because if I were pickier I’d probably be a bit slimmer, but I like food a lot. Thankfully, Colorado’s food scene is fantastic right now. No matter where we go, we find good, often farm fresh, food to eat. It’s a fabulous time to be a foodie in Colorado. In my work as a freelance writer and Mayor of HeidiTown, I get the

When Visiting Aspen, Colorado, Eat All the Things, Meat & Cheese courtesy photo. HeidiTown.com

No matter when you plan to visit Aspen, Colorado — winter, spring, summer or fall — plan to spend some time and money on dining. You won’t regret it. Before we visited this winter, I had no idea Aspen was such a foodie town, and I’m not kidding when I suggest that you should go there and eat all the things. Seriously, forget about the diet and don’t cry over

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

When people think of Colorado, food isn’t what immediately comes to most minds, but the state is brimming with delicious, fresh food during the summer. If you’d like to celebrate the bounty of Colorado, look no further than these foodie festivals taking place across the state over the next few months. Like strawberry shortcake? Strawberry ice cream? How about simple, fresh strawberries straight off the vine? Strawberry Days in Glenwood

The best taco i ever ate in Colorado. Matador's Mexican Grill. HeidiTown.com

I’ll be the first to admit that I used this title as click bait. I knew that those of you with favorite taco shops around Colorado were going to click the link, and if you didn’t see your favorite taco listed you would school me on taco greatness. Here’s the thing. “Best of” lists about food are crap and I can say that because I’ve written one in the past.

Rocky Mountain Food Tours, The Famous, a Steakhouse. HeidiTown.com

Last Saturday we went on the Delicious Downtown tour in Colorado Springs with Rocky Mountain Food Tours. My first piece of advice for anyone participating in this tour is to wear stretchy pants. Seriously, you will thank me. Our tour started at The Antlers Hotel, a mid-modern goliath in downtown. We had a full tour of 14 hungry people. About half the group was from the Springs area and the
