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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

48. Ride Your Bike to Bar Double S

It’s time to get out of the Fort and over to Laporte for some craft brews and live tunes. Bar Double S has been around for a while (formerly known as the Swing Station) but with a new owner and great local music there’s new energy at this old community honky tonk. After many years working for New Belgium and travelling [...]

45. Grab a Massive Slice of Pie at Uncle’s Pizzeria

The first thing you’ll notice when you walk into Uncle’s Pizzeria is the open kitchen and giant oven sitting right in front of you that gives you the ability to see how a great pie is made right before your eyes. If you’ve never eaten one of their massive (1/4 pie) slices of an 18″ [...]

43. Grab a Red Tea Latte at Happy Lucky’s Teahouse

Relaxing, sensory, cultural, enriching, and welcoming are just a few of the words I can think of to describe Happy Lucky’s Teahouse and Treasures. The combination of Cambodian handicrafts, appeasing music, and a unique selection of teas from all over the world provide a wonderful respite to study or chat with a friend. After spending [...]

42. See a Show at the Aggie Theatre

We’ll kick off the live music venue category with the Aggie Theatre. Though most would consider its 650 person occupancy limit to be a pretty intimate, it’s our 2nd largest indoor live music venue. Only the Lincoln Center’s Performance Hall is bigger. As with most turn of the century Old Town buildings, the Aggie has an interesting history. Built in 1906, [...]

38. Visit South by Southwest and Zephyr Cellars

  Check out Fort Collins’ only winery-tasting room! Located inside South by Southwest folk art store is a tasting room for Zephyr Cellars, formerly known as Trail Ridge Winery and formerly located in Loveland. Zephyr is a true Colorado winery, the grapes come from the Western Slope and owner Tim Merrick makes the wine here on [...]

33. A & J Antique Mall

Visiting the A&J Antique Mall is like going to a museum where everything is for sale. It’s a 13,000 square foot maze of collectibles, vintage finds, and unique embellishments. If you’re the type of person who loves perusing garage sales, thrift stores, or eclectic shops you need to add A&Js to your list of things [...]
