Meet the Mayor

The little rock-faced building on Mason Street in Fort Collins, Colorado is not the place where you will find the beloved mayor. Although it may not seem like it on the outside, this establishment is just as elegant and as distinguished as we would believe the mayor’s office to be on the inside.

The Mayor of Old Town is one of the newest bars in the Fort Collins area, featuring 100 beers on tap and an exquisite food selection from the Red Table Cafe menu for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Since breakfast is served all day, I suggest trying the green chili smothered, scrambled egg and cheese filled, avocado topped breakfast burrito known as the Avocado Burrito; served with a small cup of freshly sliced fruits and sour cream on the side, this meal requires an empty stomach beforehand because there is no doubt you will want to clear your plate before you leave.

Dining is delightful at this newly renovated enterprise, but what makes The Mayor of Old Town unique is the expansive assortment of beers on tap. The 100 taps include brews from New Belgium, Budweiser, Odell, Guinness Brewery, Firestone Walker, and many more. So, you may either try something familiar like the classic Bud Light or something unusual like the seasonal Quad which is a dark, fruity style ale that is tangy to the tongue.

You may have passed The Mayor of Old Town and mistaken it as a strictly political place of business. I suggest taking a second look the next time you drive down Mason and drop in for either a taste of the taps or a bite of the breakfast burritos!

Martini Please

An evening of romantic relaxation is required after a hectic Halloween weekend. Elliot’s Martini Bar in Fort Collins, CO has a classy and cozy ambiance, ideal for those who are in need of such unwind. The darkly tranquil atmosphere, invitingly intimate booths, and uniquely chic martinis ensure visitors a night of private engagement and the rare pleasure of leisure time.

Elliots’ Fall 2011 Menu has an assortment of martinis; from the classic Lemon Drop, to the creative French Tickler, to the sweet Velvet Tongue, each tini enlightens the taste buds and adds to the sophisticated vibe of this hometown hotspot. While enjoying one (or maybe even two!) of these marvelous martinis, order a few plates of finger foods and sit back and watch one of the featured films projected onto the big screen.

Holidays intensify our already busy schedules; being served food and drinks while delighting in a free big screen movie is the perfect opportunity for fitting in some relaxation. Let Elliot’s take care of you this weekend and make sure to say, “Martini please!”

The Mothership

Who would have thought that a bicycle ride through a few beer brewing European villages would be the leading inspiration for one of the largest breweries in the United States? Jeff Lebesch’s journey on his fat tire bicycle in 1989 motivated the creation of the New Belgium Brewing Company located in northern Fort Collins, Colorado. Designated “The Mothership” due to its focus on protecting Mother Earth, New Belgium prides itself on remaining environmentally conscious during its entire beer production process and desires enlightening consumers about the company’s environmental business decisions. This brewery offers consumers the chance to book a tour to learn more about the story behind the business, to view the production of world-class beers, and to sample original, seasonal, or brand new brews invented by fellow employees. The tour is free and available for sign-up during New Belgium’s hours of business, which is Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.

After the tour, feel free to take a seat at the bar or at any of the open tables located in the brewery and test out some more of the in-house crafted brews. If you are looking to make a contribution to protecting the environment as well, ride your bicycle to The Mothership and become immersed in Jeff Lebesch’s world. There is no better way of feeling like a young adult then hopping on a bicycle and spending the day sampling word-class beers with family and friends!

P.S. Be sure to slip down the slide at the very end of the tour! So much fun 🙂

Like It’s the Weekend

First post ever! Woo!

Even in the Internet world there is room for experiencing something new. If you haven’t read what this blog is all about yet, then let me fill you in a little bit. I like experiencing new things! I like being the newbie at events, restaurants, bars, outdoor activities, you name it; whatever is occurring around colorful Colorado, I want to be there! If you are looking to try new things too, then I hope this will be the space where you become inspired to live life youthfully. Let me be your guru Colorado!

Anyone else think Thursday is a good day to start the weekend? I do! Instead of staying at home and watching television tomorrow night, check out Fuzzy’s Taco Shop on West Elizabeth in Fort Collins, Colorado. Fuzzy’s has great food (especially the grilled fish tacos, HEAVEN), awesome margaritas (the Ram Horn seems to be the specialty), and live entertainment (who doesn’t like karaoke?). The fun shouldn’t stop at Fuzzy’s though. After you have had your fill of tacos, margs, and singing, walk on over to Mo Jeaux’s Bar & Grill for the 4 for 1 special which starts at 9 p.m. sharp. Can’t beat four drinks for three dollars right?

A night of Fuzzy’s taco’s and Mo Jeaux’s drinks is always unforgettable. Thursday will become the new Friday once you have experienced two of the most popular places in Fort Collins on a Thursday night!

Have fun, be safe, and live young readers!
