Hi Everyday Foodies!
Well the wait is over. We finally made it to the Aspen Food and Wine Classic! After a beautiful 3.5 hour drive through the mountains (which still has a little snow) we got here without incident.
We arrived to our hotel (Hotel Aspen) which is a little quaint two story hotel with a very accommodating staff. The rooms are cozy and very clean and well maintained. I think we would be willing to stay here again. The best thing is that everything is walking distance. Part of the event is literally across the street.
We found a little BBQ restaurant name Hickory House that claims it has the best ribs in Colorado. Of course I tried them and while they were really good, I found better at Mike's BBQ in Divide CO. However, I really love my BBQ ribs better that I make on my Big Green Egg. I will post a recipe and pics later. They are different types of ribs but both are really delicious.
After dinner we walked around to find where tomorrow events will be held and enjoyed the little town of Aspen. We look forward to posting tomorrow's activities!
