Northern Colorado Life – June/July 2022
Who else is ready, really ready, for summer? I am itching to take in all the concerts, food, festivals, and farmers markets I can cram into my calendar while the days allow it. For anyone who finds themselves on the same page, we’ve compiled just about everything Northern Colorado has to offer in terms of entertainment. There are the signature event we’ve all come to love, the Independence Day festivities that we may have missed in the past couple of years, and, of course, music. Concerts are back in full force. And what would summer be without the food? Have you ever considered making a special occasion out of a picnic? There’s a local business that will handle that for you. If dining out is more your gig, be sure to check out our dining guide.
Northern Colorado Life – August/September 2021
Unbelievably, summer is already drawing to a close. School will be starting soon, whether you’re ready or not. We’ve been on the slow road to normal this season and just as we’ve become used to virtual events and school, in-person classes and events have begun to reappear. To that end, we’ve assembled an issue full of events to round out your summer. Music, food, beer and even kites will give you ample opportunities to make a few more memories before kids go back to school and mom and dad head back to the office. Whatever you like to do, you’ll have plenty to choose from in Northern Colorado.
Northern Colorado Life – June/July 2021
If the pandemic has taught me one thing, it’s an appreciation of restaurants. I have always loved to cook, but knowing that there was no break to be had, even when I needed one, got to me after a while. It becomes just another daily box to tick off my list rather than an exercise in creativity. Of course, I did take-out when possible, but even that leaves dishes to be done and don’t even get me started on the constant kitchen cleaning. I am over it.
So, along with many of you, I’m sure, I am rejoicing at the return of in-person dining. I’m happy to let someone else do all of the cooking and cleaning again, while I truly take a break. Just in case you need ideas or just want to know how your favorite spots are doing, this issue is chock-full.
Northern Colorado Life – April/May 2021
This spring seems to mark a turning point. It shows the promise of restaurants, retail, events, and even our very lives beginning to open back up. But, while we’re slowly drifting back toward “normal,” whatever that may be, we are so incredibly lucky to live in a spot where the great outdoors are so accessible.
Ubiquitous local natural areas and trails afford us the opportunity to stretch our legs and enjoy the sunshine, with our families and pets in tow. If you’ve found a new love for gardening, let it grow! We’ve talked to local experts about home beekeeping–good for gardens and habitats as a whole. If your volunteerism has been curtailed by the pandemic, find a way to do it outside. The city of Greeley gives residents a great opportunity.
