"Native" exploring what it means to be a Coloradan

It is theater season folks, and you don’t have to go far because there’s lots of good theater happening right here in Northern Colorado. This past weekend I saw “Native,” in its first week at Nonesuch Theater in Fort Collins. Haven’t been there? Nonesuch is located at 216 Pine Street, just off College Avenue between Walnut and Jefferson. It was my first trip to Nonesuch, and this 49-seat theater is

A HeidiTown favorite: Colorado Coffee Exhange

I’ve been remiss in my duty to review this place. My husband and I been going to this coffee shop since they first opened as a Loveland Coffee several years ago. We go there so often they recognize our vehicles when we pull up to the drive-thru. I use the coffee shop as a second office, and I use the drive-thru when I don’t have time to stop in for

Pourhouse opens in Loveland

Review originally published on August 20, 2009.   Downtown Loveland has a new restaurant at 124 E. 4th Street. The former Cipoletti’s  restaurant is now the PourhouseBar & Grill.    Pourhouse opened  yesterday, and I was there to check it out.   The first noticeable difference is the outside of the building – it has been painted black. The inside has been altered only slightly.   Walls have been removed

Are you ready for some football?  HeidiTown's quest for the perfect sports bar

I enjoy supporting locally owned establishments and often persuade my readers to do the same. There is one particular part of my life where I fall short in this goal and that is during football season. Most locally owned joints can’t afford  the Sunday Ticket  and like all fantasy football players, my husband and I do not go out on a Sunday to watch the game. We go out to

"Julie & Julia" the perfect excuse for a girls' night

As my girlfriends will tell you, I need no  excuse to organize a girls’ night out, but “Julie  & Julia,” coming to theaters this Friday, is the perfect excuse! For a  brief, yet wonderful,  moment in time, I belonged to a recipe club. At our first “club” meeting, we spent three delightful hours talking about all things food-related: our favorite televisions chefs, our culinary inspirations and our cooking success and
