Out Around Town | Eagle RanchDowntown Eagle Ranch is home to some killer food and drinks on what I call "Restaurant Corner". 7 Hermits Brewery is a casual go-to place for craft beers and catching the game. The Dusty Boot is a local favorite for quick appetizers, drinks and unique Colorado main dishes. Finally, Luigis Pastahouse transports you to Italy where you can dine with your neighbors at the community table or enjoy family style meals with loved ones. All three of these killer eats offer al fresco dining; often enhanced with live local musicians. Stop by one of these great spots on your way to see a movie at the Capitol Theater!

Bringing Back The Art of The Siesta - Drunken Goat | Edwards, COWe’ve lost touch with the art of the siesta. Drunken Goat is here to change that.
At Drunken Goat, they take the time to handcraft every meal on the menu using locally-sourced and artisan ingredients. Their cheesemonger and wine experts meticulously select each bottle of wine and block of cheese they stock–and will gladly walk you through their collection–so that you get precisely what you need for any occasion. Like what you taste? Take it home with you, shop the delicious provisions in our artisan Mercado.
The sprawling outdoor patio is open longer throughout the season and later into the night than most anywhere else in the Valley because we know that–sometimes–to really be able to breathe deep and relax, you need to see the stars.

Staying Adaptable | The Blue PlateLocal favorite The Blue Plate in Avon, Colorado is a great example of flexibility and adaptation during uncertain times.
