It has come to my attention that not all HeidiTown citizens love winter. Apparently sparkling snow doesn’t have a magical effect on some people and in fact, makes them long for hot summer days at the lake. I don’t have a touchstone with this, as I love the snow and all things snow-related, but as a good Mayor, I shouldn’t ignore this segment of my town. And while I enjoy

Colorado Springs, land of museums

Founded as a resort town, Colorado Springs has long been a center for arts and culture. While Buffalo Bill’s Wild West shows were taking place in Denver, Colorado Springs was hosting writers and artists. I believe this predilection for the finer things in life is one reason the city has so many museums. Visit Colorado Springs has 24 area museums listed on their web site, making this city a must-visit

My Handle Bar Ride March 2012 HeidiTown.com

It has been an AMAZING year here in HeidiTown… and 2013 is going to be even better. I have so many great memories from this past year, like emceeing a freezing/cold/snowy  Berthoud Oktoberfest, attending the Great American Beer Festival for the first time and speaking multiple times at Metropolitan State University. There were some real standout moments however, so without further ado, here are my Top 10 Memories from the

As the days get shorter and colder, I start to think about theater and museums. I realize these topics come up a lot on HeidiTown, but that’s because Colorado has no shortage of artistic and cultural events to write about, plus museums and live theater are the Mayor’s favorites. On this week’s radio show on  KRFC 88.9 FM, I share some upcoming art-related events happening along the Front Range in

The past in living color at History Colorado

I had an opportunity to get a sneak peek at the new History Colorado museum in Denver this week, and I am so excited to share this blog post with you. I grew up visiting museums, and I really love them, so I’m not completely unbiased when it comes to writing about museums. However, the fact that I have toured so many makes me a pseudo museum expert, and most

Giraffe at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo

March is here and that means Spring Break. Several people have asked what the Mayor recommends doing with the kiddos over the break. If you don’t have the resources to spend the break in Mexico or Disneyland, here are a few things that will be great excursions with the kids. Visit the Zoo Coloradoans are lucky to have two outstanding zoos in our state. When we lived in the Denver

Fall in Colorado

The weather along Colorado’s Front Range is predicted to be more spring-like than fall-like this weekend. With temps in the mid-70s, it will be a great weekend to stroll the streets of Denver or take the family on a bike ride in the foothills. Whatever you do, I recommend getting outside! From soccer to art, there’s a lot going on this weekend. As a reminder HeidiTown is not a calendar
