Family Fun at Great Wolf Lodge Colorado Springs

Note: Our stay was sponsored by Great Wolf Lodge. However, all words and images are mine.

We had never been to a Great Wolf Lodge before they asked a bunch of Colorado bloggers to visit for the opening weekend of their Colorado Springs resort a few months ago. They chose the Centennial State as their 15th location and I had always heard it was a vacation all in of itself, with the water park as the front and center attraction… but I didn’t realize there was really so much more to do.

Great Wolf Lodge Water Park

Yes, of course, we loved the large indoor water park (with nearby pool bar) that includes a huge water tree fort (Colorado style) and various water slides for various ages. My teen’s favorite was the Wolf Tail, a tube where the floor literally drops out from underneath you. My 47-year-old self was happy to sit in the wave pool and watch all that business from afar. Very far afar. Continue reading…

Keggs & Eggs Concert Photos 2017: Green Beer & Great Music

St. Patrick’s Day is a big holiday in many cities. In Denver, it means Keggs & Eggs, a morning concert put on by KTCL Channel 93.3.

Morning… meaning REALLY REALLY REALLY early. This year, the show moved to Blake Street Tavern but continued to be as packed as ever, even with an overflow parking lot and jumbotron to broadcast out there. There was tons (and I mean tons) of green Coors Light and great bands to enjoy it with. American Authors, Bishop Briggs and Bryce Fox played throughout the day and Denver’s great weather delivered – with temperatures near 80. Spring has officially arrived! Continue reading…

Calling Down the Mountain with AT&T and Arapahoe Basin

AT&T Coverage at Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort in Colorado

Colorado. Mountains. Winter. Snow. Fun. They just go together. One of my favorite places for all these together is “The Legend”, Arapahoe Basin. For 20+ years I’ve been riding in Colorado, and A-Basin has always been the place I enjoy most. I’m certain a lot of it is personal preference, but I like how it’s not the posh and polished apres ski focused village. It’s where you go when you want to find out what you can really ride, and enjoy friends looking to find the same. I’ve sat on the lifts with random ski dogs (literally, furry fun-loving dogs), and relaxed at the base, aka “The Beach,” grilling hotdogs with new pals I just met. Continue reading…

Fun Colorado band: Modern Suspects

We are lucky here in Colorado, that our local music scene extends in all directions. Modern Suspects, a band based in Colorado Springs, plays up in Denver frequently, and they are a lot of fun live.

Seeing as I am an old lady, most of my musical references go back to 80’s bands and Modern Suspects remind me of Depeche Mode, Soft Cell and Simple Minds wrapped up together. These guys also happen to be super nice people, so we try to see them whenever they are in Denver, or we are in Colorado Springs.

Modern Suspects are playing with another fun Denver band, Midnight Club on Saturday, February 11th at the Marquis Theatre. Be sure to go check them out!

Dressy Bessy with Wheelchair Sports Camp and SPELLS at Hi-Dive

Dressy Bessy was one of the first Denver bands I followed when we moved here in the 90s. Their infectious mixture of pop, rock and punk was (and still is) intoxicating. The band has been playing again lately, with a new album too, much to the delight of our local music scene. The show at Hi-Dive this month included Wheelchair Sports Camp and SPELLS, so it was pretty much a dream lineup. Kalyn Heffernan, the emcee for Wheelchair Sports Camp, is mesmerizing while trumpeter Joshua Trinidad blasts along next to her. And SPELLS? They are their own force to be reckoned with – as I have written about before.

Dressy Bessy will be playing Boise’s Tree Fort Music Festival in March and promises more shows in 2017. You betcha we can’t wait.
