People really, really like tacos. I learned this when I wrote a little piece in November called, “When it Come to Tacos, Longmont, Colorado is Winning.” This post caused quite the stir and was even picked up by Google News. Readers left impassioned messages for me on this blog, on Facebook and on Twitter. I had not predicted this sort of passion around a small tortilla stuffed with meat. Residents

Happy National Pizza Month A Love for the Pie at Right Coast Pizza. FNB. HeidiTown (5)

Pizza is controversial. Don’t believe me? Ask your friends, on a platform like Facebook, if they think pizza crust should be thin or thick. And if you really want to stir the marinara, ask if they think pizza should be folded when eaten. These are the kinds of discussions we love at HeidiTown, so I was excited when First National Bank asked if I’d write an article in honor of

Over the years, it has suffered from a reputation that’s perpetuated by people who haven’t visited the town in more than a decade or who have never visited at all. Considering this, I think their new tagline, “Greeley Unexpected”, is rather apropos. Earlier this month, Ryan and I spent the day shopping in downtown Greeley and discovered that, in addition to a good

Some people love the holidays, but there are many of us who find the season a bit stressful. Family obligations, travel and high expectations can make an otherwise merry time of year downright  excruciating.

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
