Aspen: A Town Transforming

If you like Aspen, Colorado, as a destination and plan to go there soon, be aware:

New: Jimmy’s Bodega.  Jimmy Yeager of 17-years-old Jimmy’s Restaurant has opened a new one on the Mill Street walking mall.  Aspen Art Gallery.  At Hyman and Spring, it is controversial.  Some say it’s too large.  It IS a huge 3-D box with 5 galleries, a rooftop cafe, etc.  CORE.  A new, yet-to-open office and condo development next to venerable Little Annie’s Eating House, CORE is causing Annie to look for a new location before it faces demolition after next April.

Still there, still great:  the summer Music Festival, Matsuhisa  (Aspen’s best restaurant), the Little Nell’s Jas Cafe with some performances at the new art museum.

Gone in Aspen:  Boogie’s hamburgers, the Pismo Gallery, the Middle Class.



About roadsrus

Since the beginning, I've had to avoid writing about the downside of travel in order to sell more than 100 articles. Just because something negative happened doesn't mean your trip was ruined. But tell that to publishers who are into 5-star cruise and tropical beach fantasies. I want to tell what happened on my way to the beach, and it may not have been all that pleasant. My number one rule of the road's disaster is tomorrow's great story. My travel experiences have appeared in about twenty magazines and newspapers. I've been in all 50 states more than once and more than 50 countries. Ruth and I love to travel internationally--Japan, Canada, China, Argentina, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, etc. Within the next 2 years we will have visited all of the European countries. But our favorite destination is Australia. Ruth and I have been there 9 times. I've written a book about Australia's Outback, ALONE NEAR ALICE, which is available through both Amazon & Barnes & Noble. My first fictional work, MOVING FORWARD, GETTING NOWHERE, has recently been posted on Amazon. It's a contemporary, hopefully funny re-telling of The Odyssey. View all posts by roadsrus
