Don’t know what to do that weekend? Properly, you’ve come to the precise place. Pull up a seat to the counter, and I’ll inform you about every thing that’s scorching and occurring.
Good day, 2020. To be sincere, I’m possible not going to deal with it a lot in another way than some other 12 months. I may make the stereotypical resolutions about studying, touring or figuring out extra, that are all worthwhile, however as an alternative I’m going a special course.
My New Yr’s resolutions learn extra like a bucket listing of issues I wish to accomplish particular to the Excessive Nation. I’ve way back checked off the big-ticket gadgets comparable to mountain climbing a 14er, seeing a present on the Dillon Amphitheater, going canine sledding and visiting the Ice Castles. Relatively, this can be a private listing of issues I wish to do. Your mileage could very, however in the event you haven’t finished them, you’re welcome to hitch in on the enjoyable.
1. Eat at each restaurant in Summit County
OK, possibly not each restaurant. However since I’m a neighborhood, I really feel like I must be a concierge with stellar suggestions for visitors — which implies getting out of my consolation zone on the identical 5 institutions and growing my pattern dimension. I’ve dined on the extravagant Keystone Ranch, Ski Tip Lodge, Aurum and Alpenglow Stube, however there are nonetheless loads of others I haven’t been to comparable to Relish, Hearthstone and Ember.
What are Bangkok Blissful Bowl, Café ProFusion and Tiki Mana like? How do Cool River Espresso Home or Mother’s Baking examine? Which place has the most effective ice cream, the most effective pizza or finest inexperienced chile smothered burrito? Time to search out out.
2. Go to Damaged Compass Brewing
Sure, for a man who writes a weekly beer column, I’m ashamed to confess I’ve by no means been to Damaged Compass Brewing. I’ve had its beer loads of instances at festivals, in bars or poured from a good friend’s growler. However for some unknown purpose, I’ve by no means set foot within the brewery itself. In my protection, it’s a bit out of the best way, but when I can park on Airport Highway to ski Breckenridge Ski Resort or take pleasure in a meal at Breckenridge Distillery, I can take the time to pop over to the brewery, as effectively.
three. See a Breckenridge Backstage Theatre manufacturing
I like the theater. I’ve season tickets to the Denver Heart for Performing Arts, I randomly burst into present tunes — particularly these from “Hamilton: An American Musical” — whereas driving, and I spent many summers seeing performs on the Creede Repertory Theatre. Nevertheless, I haven’t had the chance to see something finished by Breckenridge Backstage Theatre — but.
I additionally have to see extra exhibits placed on by the Lake Dillon Theatre Co. whereas I’m at it. My first and solely manufacturing I noticed from them was Steve Martin’s “The Underpants” again in August 2018.
four. Do an escape room
Not solely have I not been to the escape room services regionally in Breckenridge or Frisco, however I haven’t ever finished one earlier than. I like puzzles and video video games, so that is proper up my alley — if I can put collectively a stable group.
I’m starting to understand most of my listing is simply to go to Breckenridge extra, which I suppose isn’t a foul factor.
5. Go zip lining
Just like the escape rooms, I’ve by no means been on a zipper line wherever. With year-round choices in Summit, Lake and Clear Creek counties, I’ve no excuse to not see our majestic mountains from a unique approach. If I am going to the one in Leadville, I must also plan the journey round lastly catching one of many city’s annual festivals, comparable to Growth Days or skijoring.
We’ll see what number of of those I really full, however at the least I’ve you, pricey reader, to carry me accountable.
