Sun’s out, the river’s roaring, traffic’s jamming and visitors are rolling into the garden of Eden, Aspen. Locals came for the winter and stayed for the summer—which is a good thing, since this season seems to be getting longer ’n longer. Since our Buckhorn closing party with the Aspen82 boys, here’s a few things we’ve been dreamin’ about: Tuesday Cruisedays, the new Zipline in Snowmass, plus their Free Concert Series, Top of the Mountain, patio parties, pool-hopping at the Nell, and of course, all the festivals which make our Valley unforgettable.
This weekend catapults us into summer shanangans, and Messenger’s pumped like half the lips that arrived for Food & Wine, Don’t fret if a ticket to this swanky event hasn’t fallen into the palm of your hand, there’s more than enough fun to be on the outskirt of tents, starting with a handful of smokiin’ hot eateries we adore.
Tanuki-To-Go returns for another go around of back-door deliciousness, and rumor has it two of the partners got hitched during off season making their asian street food steamier and spicier than ever!
Venga Venga (VV) shreds into summer with Taco Tuesdays (TT) offering tres dinero tacos y cinco dinero Milagro margaritas—bono, etas en Snowmass lejos de las multitudes!! VVTT kicks it up a notch on June 19th when DJ Golden spins sun-sational jams at their Launch Party.
Staying with the patio theme, Hops takes over Hyman serving up their juicy Royale, Aspen Kitchen’s rooftop sizzles, but shades on the menu, too, with the arrival of their new umbrellas, and Aspen Tap’s pouring morning java and pints all day, but beware, the outdoor stools fill up faster than the beers are emptied.
So, if you haven’t ventured over the Pass, up 82, or landed at PCA…get your booty in town.
SUMMER STARTS TODAY!
