Re: “2012 Manitou Springs Colorado Wine Festival

Seems rather expensive for a tasting. Often they're free.

Re: “Take-a-Peak Chicken-Coop Tour

Get out and see what people do in their backyards.
I'm a bit prejudiced since I organize the tour. The link above has an error and takes you off to an IPod scam. The correct link should be ' or just '

Re: “Chris Duarte

A performance nothing short of amazing.
Very danceable, straight ahead Rockin' Blues in the 'Texas Flood' style of Stevie Ray Vaughan (Rolling Stone once said CD was the only heir apparent to SRV), with that same Kick of truly inspired virtuoso Guitar work that both left folks sweaty from dancing, and shaking their heads, smiling.
Drummer and Bass are top-notch, super tight, up the challenge of backing such an amazing soloist, and the whole package had the whole place rocking from the get go. That is, when we weren't just staring in disbelief.
This is a performer who somehow keeps improving, varying styles, and rewarding the listener/dancer, despite having been the best guitarist for thousands of miles wherever he goes, for many years now.
I'm an electric-oriented Rock guy, and have seen a lot of the players on most folks "Top 100 Guitar Solos" list, in some different styles- Nuno, Adrian Belew, Ted, Eddie VH, John Lee Hooker, Zappa, Lifeson, Robin Trower, Tommy Emmanuel, to mention a few- and this guy Live is the kind of Phenom that not only satisfies like the rest, but blows people's minds.
Don't miss him next time he's in the area.

Re: “Romeo and Juliet

Gay E. Menditto - SO much to love about this production, I don't know where to begin. The costumes, the theme, the portrayals, the amazing fight scenes, fun swing dancing, beautiful music, etc. etc. I loved that even though I have memorized this play and love it, I did not know what to expect next. Great job!!! ~ Tin Roof.

Re: “World Tai Chi Qigong Day

How wonderful is this...I'm so proud to be apart of the Tai Chi Association of Colorado Springs. I began Tai Chi and Qigong in January; learning about my body and its ability to heal itself. Learning Tai Chi and Qigong has made a difference in how I look at the world around me! The western world is missing out if it isn't catching onto Tai Chi and Qigong!
