It's the thick of the holidays here in Aspen, a zillion things to do, all involving fun and most involving hot chocolate! Music hits overdrive at the Bellyup, with DJ Z Trip, Public Enemy, Crystal Method, BB King and Jane's Addiction, all coming to fill the 450 person state of the art club with revelers up to the New Year. And on the malls and in the streets, the Aspen Dickens Carolers, Hyman Ave Nights Live Music and Linda Eder at the Wheeler on the 28th.
What a great way to maximize a stay at Aspen Square Hotel! 19 of town's art galleries will open their doors and invite you in for a special look at the latest exhibits; start anywhere at 5 pm and stroll from one stunning display to the next, all for free! Look for the Red Balloons to guide you through the fun. The Aspen Sojourner ArtWalk Tuesday, December 22. www.aspensojourner.com. Walk to it all, from Aspen Square Hotel. www.aspensquarehotel.com.
