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.
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.
