Brews, Wreaths, Raptors and More—December 14-20 in Fort Collins

December 14th, 2018
Arlington Cemetery at Christmas time

As we approach the popular winter holidays, it’s super important to keep up on the happenings around town. Chanukah just wrapped up, Diwali was last month, and coming up in two weeks is Christmas, Winter Solstice, and Kwanzaa. But this is also December, and technically the first of a couple winter months, and those months also have important notices to check out. Wolf Picker IPA For example, those of us who follow the brew scene will likely want to know about the Wolf Picker IPA being released for a limited time. On Friday, December 14th, Odell Brewing Company is hosting the Wolf Picker IPA... Read More

May the Season Be Bright and Merry, and Full of Local Goods, Love, and Light—Fort Collins this Weekend

December 8th, 2018
Adopt a Family

In a time of so many busy days, there are plenty of things we get to do that keep us to ourselves—from raising our families, to working our 9-5 (or whatever shift you work), to simply sitting in the dark in your living room on a Friday night watching Netflix and eating Chex mix by the handful (anyone else? no? just me? Okay then). Check out some of these events to help get yourself connected as we approach the coldest days of the year. Wolverine Friday You already know about the First Friday Gallery Walk, so now, you need to remember one more stop on that list. Wolverine Farm Letterpress and... Read More

The Week of Giving is Upon us in Fort Collins—Colorado Gives Day and More

December 3rd, 2018
Zwei Brewing

It’s been said before, and it will be said again: Colorado, specifically Fort Collins, has its heart in the right place. We pride ourselves on giving and loving and being part of our greater community. We want that community to be safe, warm and bright all year round, but it’s never more apparent than when we get into the holiday season. Tuesday, December 4th, marks a very important day in our state: Colorado Gives Day. For those of us who are unfamiliar with Colorado Gives Day, it goes like this: we’re celebrating and increasing philanthropy statewide in Colorado through online giving. This... Read More

As anyone who has ever lived near a growing community knows, the holidays are as chaotic and varied as trying to decide exactly what to get for the people you love, no matter what winter holiday you celebrate at home. December starts this weekend, and with it, so many winter events are coming to light. Buckle up! Beware the Cookie Cutters Downtown Fort Collins prides itself on being a hub of activity — with everything from the lights, to the shops, to the small-town feel that allows us to escape from the busy-ness of our lives. That small-town feel is brought into crisper view by the reality... Read More

November 16th, 2018
Santa Cops Larimer County

Santa and Co in FoCo Few things are more magical for families who celebrate Christmas among their winter holidays than Santa.

This weekend, on Friday, November 16th, Santa will arrive at Foothills for the third year in a row. The Third Annual Holiday Tree Lighting and Santa’s Arrival is on the East Lawn of Foothills, marking the season opening of what is deemed Northern Colorado’s largest outdoor ice rink, also known as The Pond!

Brewery News, Charitable Good Causes, Always New Experiences — Fort Collins Keeping Busy in November

November 12th, 2018
Express Train

A Visitor Comes to Stay While Fort Collins is known for its craft brewing, and as a leader in the craft brewing scene, we’re still always happy to see new faces in our midst. Founders Brewing Company is based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The company was founded in 1997, and eventually became a welcoming experience for all. In the last 21 years, the company has, well, come of age (so to speak), and is branching out to introduce some of its beverages in other states. Enter: The Founders Brewing Company Welcome Party at Black Bottle Brewery and at The Mayor of Old Town. Both locations will be... Read More

Creation, Charitability, and Content for the Masses—a look at Veterans Day weekend

November 9th, 2018
Operation Homefront

Whether you’re looking for culture of the theatrical kind or of the service kind, this weekend holds something that will get you involved or help you escape from the world around you, if only for a little bit. The Monster Within Quite possibly the most famous (and misunderstood) monster in our popular culture anymore is the one given to us a full 200 years ago by author Mary Shelley: Frankenstein’s Monster! This monster has been the subject of many movie depictions, novel adaptations, and stage plays. Just about anyone on the street could tell you who the monster is, even though they always... Read More

Holiday Season—Enter Stage Left—The Season of Warmth and Love Begins

November 5th, 2018
Project Smile

The Holiday Season holds much in store for us as a community. It always does because it is often the time of year for giving time, money, food, and the self in order for someone else to have a happy time. But it also holds a lot for us because, not only do we give and get, but we have fun, both in the act of charity and otherwise. As usual, the best thing about Fort Collins is that there’s a little something for everyone. Wise and Sagely You’ve heard of Homecoming Dances, Prom Dances, and (for some of us), Black and White Balls (formals, basically). Now, there’s the Prairie Sage Dance. Brought... Read More

November 3rd, 2018
Dia de los Muertos

This weekend brings us many things, including Fall Back (or you know, more accurately, the end of Daylight Savings Time). But, if you dread that kind of change, you can get your mind off it with a plethora (though a smaller plethora) of new events this weekend. Magic! Friday nights at Gryphon Comics and Games, you can bring your kiddo (younger than 8th grade) to participate in a Magic: The Gathering tournament. For those of you unsure what Magic is, I’ll give you a crash course. Magic: The Gathering is a trading card game with fantastic creatures, individuals, and abilities fueled by cards... Read More
