64. Thai Pepper

If I ordered the posts I write based on how much I like a place, Thai Pepper near the corner of Laurel and College in Fort Collins would be much higher. However, it’s good to save some gems for the future, and Thai Pepper is number 64. Based on the people I know, I feel [...]

63. Music at the Griffin Concert Hall

Last night I went to see the live taping of etown at the Griffin Concert Hall at Colorado State University.  I really had no idea what an amazing performance I was in for.  I have never actually listened to the show, which airs weekly on NPR around the country. I really only new that Josh [...]

60. Savor a Margherita Pizza at Pulcinella’s Pizzeria

I’ve been starting to make a habit of visiting Pulcinella’s Pizzeria recently for lunch.  I just can’t get away from their fantastic margherita pizza.  It’s fresh, crispy, and delicious.  What’s even better is that pizza lovers can enjoy this gourmet pie for half-price every Monday!  Honestly, if you can find a better pizza deal in [...]

58. Northern Colorado Corn Maze

A visit to the Northern Colorado Corn Maze is a perfectly suited outing for the month of October. Bring the kids out during the day for plenty of fun activities or plan to be spooked during the night as you wind your way through a giant maze of fully grown corn. During the day visitors [...]

56. Tour the Historic Avery House

If you’re a history buff, love museums, or are looking for something to do next time your parents come to town, check out the Historic Avery House located on the corner of Mountain Ave. and Meldrum.

55. Breakfast at Rainbow Restaurant

When John Gunther stated that, “All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast” I think he had the Rainbow Restaurant in mind. I discovered another Fort Collins gem today when I visited the Rainbow Restaurant. Quaint, local,  charming, vegetarian friendly, and welcoming are some of the first words that come to mind when I think of [...]

53. $1 Pints and Savory Bar-B-Que at Mo Jeaux’s

I had heard rumors of a cool, down-to-earth Fort Collins bar offering $1 pints of anything on tap every Wednesday night. Today I discovered that the rumors of cheap beer were only scratching the surface. Not only can you get $1 pints of anything on tap every Wednesday night at Mo Jeaux’s from 9-12pm. There [...]

The event will offer interactive, family oriented events designed to educate people of all ages and backgrounds about: renewable energy, green building, natural health, social responsibility, and local economies. It’s a great way to spend a [...]

49. Visit the CSU Flower Garden

The CSU Annual Flower Trial Garden is a must do for your list. Particularly if you’re looking for a way to spend a relaxing afternoon in Fort Collins without an agenda. Of course if you’re a flower lover or a horticulturalist, you probably know much more about the Flower Garden than I do. If you [...]

47. Swim, Bike, and Run in a Triathalon

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to watch the Fort Collins Triathlon and Duathlon. Don’t worry, if you’re reading this after the fact, there’s a long list of similar events throughout the year in Fort Collins and Colorado. The Fort Collins Tri consisted of a 1/4 mile swim at Epic Pool, a 13 mile [...]
