Food & Wine Classic in Aspen

It was a HUGE weekend in Aspen, as 3 major events "went off" simultaneously in ZG.  The Food & Wine Classic, Ride the Rockies and Jazz Aspen /Snowmass brought hordes of pleasure seekers to a little place called Aspen.  All Star lineup @ Food & Wine classic in Aspen. Photo: Molly Gibson Lodge.

Ride the Rockies in Aspen, Colorado. 380 miles, can u hang? Photo: Robert Fullerton.The Spin-Master is still in Ski-hab, ie: we missed the biggest weekend of the summer.  We did get a little help from our friends; Molly Gibson Lodge, Jeremy Swanson, Robert Fullerton and Harald Neuweg of The WeinerStube who provided us with some images to share.

Food & Wine hosted their 27th Annual fest. Thousands of wine aficionados and foodies joined with celebrity chefs, vintners, industry folk and other hedonists to celebrate the gastric arts & battle the altitude . The Ride for the Rockies is a polar opposite. The 24th annual Denver Post RTR is a 380 mile bike ride through beautiful Rocky Mountains.  About 2000 riders rolled in and around Aspen. In the evenings Jazz Aspen /Snowmass kicked off their Summer season with performances from Chris Botti and Smokey Robinson among others.  We'll admit it in writing, AspenSpin is homesick.
