Summer is here, enjoy the last couple weeks of skiing & snowboarding, as it's time to start surfing and floating the river, as well as bike season! With Covid cases on the rise again, don't forget your masks, and to practice social distancing.

Have you noticed Worthy Taps & Tacos is now, Worthy Beers & Burgers? As of this past weekend Worthy has rebranded their downtown location to feature a killer selection of burgers and as always the tasty beers they have been brewing up for years. Swing by and check out the new menu, with great options like the Green Chile Burger or the Magic Mushroom.
This week we enjoyed drinks at San Simon, self described as sophisticated debauchery and we agree. With a cocktail list that will inspire you to take a bartending class and a selection of charcuterie boards that rival the elegant creations you see on TV, It's the perfect spot for an afternoon date or a late night unwind.
If you are looking for food look no further than than Barrio. With a modern take on Latin food, you are sure to enjoy bold and delicious flavors. They have a fantastic takeout menu, featuring a massive selection of paella and enchiladas. Our favorite is the chicken barrio bowl.
