5 interesting places to meet over ice cream

We’re in the full swing of summer, and for me that means taking my meetings out of the office and into the sun. Below are a few unique spots in Fort Collins where we could cool down while we talk shop.

  1. Old Town Churn is situated at the heart of The Exchange, which I blogged about here. Their Salted Oreo flavor is from another planet and The Exchange’s outdoor lawn area is kid-friendly.
  2. Walrus Ice Cream is a FoCo staple, as much for their playful flavors as for the walrus-inspired art covering the walls.
  3. Revolution Artisan Pops offers homemade gelato and ice pops. I love that they collaborate with other local businesses, from dairies to coffee shops to juiceries. Did you know Revolution is owned and operated by students at CSU?
  4. Union Bar & Soda Fountain is worth visiting just to check out their mid-century decor. In their own words, Union puts their “own creative twist on timeless recipes such as egg creams, phosphate sodas and even milkshakes.” They also offer cocktails, a full menu, and a beautiful patio.
  5. Eating healthier this summer? I haven’t forgotten you! Ba-nom-a-nom is a mobile food cart which offers soft serve made from fruit. Their goodies are “dairy free (vegan), gluten free, nut free, sugar free, fat free, & egg free by nature.” The cart can often be found at the FoCo Food Truck Rally.

I am only scratching the surface—Fort Collins has no shortage of summer sweets. Give me a call to meet up at one of my favorites, or at yours!

Greeley’s Friday Fest

Festival season is well underway! Have you planned out all the bands you’ll check out and all the street meats you’ll sample?

Be sure that Friday Fest is on your list. Every year, downtown Greeley offers up their summer-long lineup of free music and fun. Bring the kids along and enjoy face painting, chalk art, street performances and more.

During Friday Fest, the city also offers “Go-Cup service” — purchase an adult beverage at any of Greeley’s restaurants and you are welcome to take that drink with you to the Fest’s outdoor concerts and activities. (Mom and dad deserve a fun night out, too…)

Don’t forget that a move can be about more than a house. It can also be about wanting more night life, a more family-friendly city or more summer fun. What are your new neighborhood must-haves?
