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.
