Aspen Square Daily News
We're delighted to greet many old friends this weekend for the annual Food & Wine Classic. Our hotel is bursting with guests and town is filling up quickly with culinary stars, exhibitors, and happy guests ready to enjoy the gastronomic overload!
We've enjoyed a couple of weeks of absolutely beautiful weather and with our state flower, the columbine, blooming all over the valley, we are all agreed that summer is truly here. The pace in town is noticeably picking up with two early-summer events this weekend, Outside in Aspen and Aspen Eco Fest. Next weekend's Food & Wine Classic, celebrating 30 years, is our traditional summer season launch, and Aspen Square will be right in the thick of it!
The Aspen Historical Society presents its annual Schnicklefritz Party honoring an iconic Aspen character, Freddie Fisher, on Tuesday, June 12. The party celebrates Freddie with music, toasting, stories and the annual FishWit prize, awarded to the letter-to-the-editor writer of the year. It's a great opportunity to revel in a bit of Aspen's famous messy vitality! For more information, visit www.aspenhistorysociety.com.
