Oklahoma cartwheel candlelight

It’s time for another dinner theater review and this time I went back to Candlelight Dinner Playhouse  in Johnstown, Colorado for “Oklahoma!” I’ve been going to theater since I was just a little girl, but I had never seen a production of this famous play until last week. Today, “Oklahoma!” is considered a wholesome family musical and is often performed at high schools and even middle schools, so it’s difficult

Scrooge logo

Two very different Christmas shows are now playing in Northern Colorado, and I have had the chance to see them.   Read my reviews and decide which one is right for your family this season. The two musicals are strikingly different, and each has strong points, so you may decide to see both. “Scrooge! The Musical” While the entire cast is talented, Brian Burron, as Scrooge, is the heart of

Win 2 tickets to the Oscar Party at The Kress

The Kress is rolling out the red carpet for YOU! The Kress Cinema & Lounge is located in downtown Greeley, Colorado and it’s a HeidiTown favorite!

"Smokey Joe's Cafe" at Carousel Dinner Theater

My husband and I finally had the opportunity to check out Carousel Dinner Theater thanks to a great deal they ran on Facebook. Carousel has been in Fort Collins, Colorado since 2002, and they recently moved to The Midtown Art Center at 3750 South Mason. The new location is classy and houses a foyer, bar area, a theater and a ballroom for conferences, parties and weddings. I  never saw the

Colorado Rapids v. FC Dallas MLS Cup Watch Party

It’s no secret, the Mayor of HeidiTown is a fanatical fan of soccer. Seriously folks, I LOVE soccer. LOVE. And it’s been a great year for Colorado soccer fans… first the World Cup and now the Colorado Rapids have made it to the MLS final in Toronto. There are several watch parties in Denver, but there wasn’t an organized event in Northern Colorado, so I decided to put one together

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

Where to watch Tour De France in Fort Collins, Colorado

Due to the overwhelming success of my post entitled “Where to watch World Cup in Northern Colorado,” I’ve decided to appease those cyclist fanatics out there –  as it turns out, there are a lot of you. I can ride a bike, but I am not a “cyclist,” however, I do occasionally tune in to the grand daddy of all bike races to check on Lance and revel in the

Crossed Wires

Sometimes it feels like technology is speeding along like a run away train, but then I have a conversation like this and I realize we aren’t all on board. This morning I called a local restaurant in a small Northern Colorado town to inquire as to whether they have wireless. Telephone Conversation: Me:   “Do you have wireless?” Them:   “Um… this is a restaurant.” Me:   “Yes, I know,
