The bigger the better!

The bigger the better! Hot Dogs that is!
On our way to Denver last week Sherrie and I stopped at the Coney Island Hot Dog Stand in Bailey, CO. Ever since seeing a PBS special a few years ago about great roadside hot dog stands, I feel it is my civic duty to stop and support them. A bit of Americana.
The dogs were delicious and how often do you get to eat food from a building shaped like the food you are eating?

Last night Sherrie and I attended the CD release party for local Master Polyrhythmist Bones' latest release Nomad. What a party! Bones is known for putting on extravagant performances, but last night he outdid himself. The Steamplant ballroom was packed as Bones and a revolving cast of local musicians took the stage and got people hitting the dance floor.
I added some Chapman Stick to a couple of tracks on the CD, which snagged me the honor of getting a VIP pass. This meant, a free CD, free food and drink and the option of watching a video feed of the performance from backstage. Not bad, eh?

Green's Creek Revisited

Sherrie and I spent some time this morning hiking up along Green's Creek. It's always nice to get out and enjoy the outdoors. We hiked this trail last year shortly after I arrived from Cleveland, it was a nice feeling to revisit it and to realize how much this place now feels like home.
