It's fitting that Colorado Springs' mayoral race would end the same week that we'd planned for our annual Summer Guide — and not because it's given us a chance to put Steve Bach in floaties. (Note to Richard Skorman: If you're looking for a silver lining on your loss, remember that our image of your head on that body will never see the light of day.)
We'd like to think that this week, we as a community get to turn the page, leaving behind the tension and bitterness of a never-ending election season and instead moving for a little while toward more life-affirming fare: music, film, food, books, outdoor activities, clowns. (Not necessarily in that order.)
In the pages to follow, we hope you find some ideas for how to make this a summer to remember. And as always, we invite you to tell us about anything we missed by commenting at csindy.com.
