Introducing TacosandPho.com For Those Who Love Food. Bennys Tacos. HeidiTown (2)

I thought I’d written this post. Seriously. For some reason, I convinced myself that I had written an introduction to TacosandPho.com on HeidiTown. Alas, I had not. So, while I started this new venture some time ago, here is a proper introduction. During the pandemic, I started a new blog. It was sort of out of boredom.

Loveland Oktoberfest

This year, Loveland Oktoberfest, held at Grimm Brothers Brewhouse, has many of the right ingredients to be called the best Oktoberfest in Northern Colorado. Of course, it’s about the bier First of all, Oktoberfest is about good beer and Loveland’s festival will feature six of the city’s award winning breweries, and
