Happy Valentine’s Day!
Well January flew by and we are finally getting some winter weather (not that we really want that). Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow so an early spring it is, or is it? Our Colorado dogs did see their shadow so what does that really say about these rodents and their predictions? BTW, did you see the Jeep-Bill Murray commercial? It’s hilarious!
Now is a great time to visit us on the Western Slope! NO CROWDS, you can get in and out of the wineries for tastings so much easier and hardly any wait time at the local restaurants. Win, win in my book. One of our local restaurants: Palisade Café 11.0 just reopened with a new menu you that you should check out!
You probably saw my post on FaceBook but you are running out of time to book your romantic Valentine’s weekend. Yes, Valentine’s falls on a Friday this year so that means a full weekend for all of you romantics out there. Nothing better than driving up to the mountains for some skiing, maybe stopping in Glenwood Springs for a soak and dinner and then stay the night in one of our tastefully decorated suites (breakfast included)! Call or email us if you would like a discount coupon code for the Iron Mountain Hot Springs in Glenwood Springs. We partnered with them and their Adventure Park.
Don’t like Valentine’s? Other holidays this month are President’s day (who could forget Washington and Lincoln) and of course there’s Fat Tuesday! I’m going to try my hand at making a King cake this year. Wish me luck that I don’t melt the baby.
If this isn’t enough to entice you, here are a few upcoming events on our side of the mountains. Remember to book early because some of these shows, festivals and B&B’s sell out fast.
Until next time!
