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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

35. Lace-up your quads at Rollerland

Grab your girlfriend, round up the kids, or get a large group of friends together and wander over to Rollerland Skating Center for some good old roller-skating fun.  If you’re feeling especially “fly” don  a little 80′s flair. Until tonight I hadn’t worn a pair of “quads” (rollerskates) for at least 10 years, maybe longer.  [...]

25. Soapstone Prairie

The Soapstone Prairie is one of those places I would never have thought to visit if it hadn’t been suggested to me. I first heard about Soapstone from a very nice man at the Old Town Visitor’s Bureau when I asked him what his favorite thing to do in Fort Collins was. Of all the [...]

10. Ride a free bike from the FC Bike Library

Tomorrow is Sunday and it’s going to be 70 and sunny.  It feels like old man winter is finally leaving town so let’s all celebrate by taking a ride on a bike from the FC bike library!  With an ID, a credit card and a your signature on a form, a comfy commuter bike and a lock is yours for [...]

7. Enjoy a beer while watching a movie at the Lyric Cinema

Where else can you have a great Colorado micro-brew while lounging on a couch in a movie theater?! The Lyric shows excellent independent and foreign films. If the repeat blockbuster story-lines have you worn out, this is the place to go to find originality. The staff is laid back and friendly and there is a [...]
