Aspen: It's a town...and a resort.

The Aspen Police Department Team Photo, 2012.The Golden Noodle goes to Rustique. Click 4 pix.Aspen, Colorado is known as one of the premier mountain resorts in the World.  Winter or Summer,   there's something for everybody.   Now that school is back in session and Summer is over, Aspen reverts back  to a real town.  Real people, doing real stuff, living real lives albeit in a beautiful Rocky Mountain paradise.

This past weekend AspenSpin made the rounds in Aspen.  Meeting, greeting, eating, snapping and rapping. Saturday was a double-header of community events and Sunday was the Community Picnic followed by the White Party at an undisclosed private residence. 

The 2nd Annual Aspen Macaroni and Cheese Festival took over restaurant row.  20 local restaurants served up free gourmet mac & cheese samples to about 2,500 people.  Mac & cheese with truffle oil, mac & cheese with pulled pork and jalapenos, mac & cheese with portabello mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, mac & cheese deep fried and on-a-stick.  You get the picture...or if not click 4 pix:   A-TOWN

Little Annie's one of Aspen's favorite eating houses and watering holes celebrated it's 40th Birthday with a blowout bash in the streets of Aspen.   East Hyman street was closed down, man.  For a certain generation of Aspenites ...call them the "lost sheep" this was a momentous occasion and the revelry reflected that.  Bobby Mason, Hayden Gregg, Bryan Savage and a band of locals performed a rowdy set of good-time rock & roll.  The lost sheep turned back the clock and there was dancing in the streets.  Click 4 pix:  A-TOWN.

Sunday was a picture perfect blue-bird day in Aspen.  The Aspen Community Picnic at the Aspen Golf Course is a family-friendly event hosted by The City of Aspen.  A full-on BBQ with burgers, dogs and veggie patties for more than 2000 people.   The Police, the Fire Fighters, the Politicians and City Employees rolled out the red carpet for the entire town.  Fishing, putt-putt, frisbee and an inflatable bounce-house for the kids made it fun for everyone.

More BBQ-ing occurred at a very secluded, undisclosed private residence for The White Party.  12,000 square feet of party space...and everyone wore white... after labor day, no less.   Sherry is one of the most accomplished and generous hostesses in Aspen.  She loves to throw parties...for Halloween, Christmas, Mardi Gras... you name the occasion, Sherry is planning a party for it.
