With the High Park fire still raging, temperatures forecast to hit 100 in Denver today, extremely dry conditions and a potentially scary fire season still looming before us, we want to say:

Thank You Firefighters.

Thank You to those who throw themselves between us and disaster, fighting for our homes and our safety.

Thank You to those in Ft. Collins fighting that monster right now.

Thank You to our local volunteer firefighters who are ready to go at a moment’s notice.

We appreciate you more than words can say.  ~  The Big Chili Cook-Off of Evergreen

volunteer firefighters in ColoradoThe Colorado Governor’s Residence at the Boettcher Mansion is an elegant home fondly known as “Colorado’s Home,” located at 400 E. 8th Avenue in Denver. Built as a private residence in 1908, the house has been available for use by Governor since 1960, both as a home and for official Governor’s Functions. The 2006 renovation of the original Carriage House, and additions of the Tebo Visitors Center and Viki and Jack Thompson Gardens, have brought this stately house to a new level of beauty and service to the people of Colorado.

This gorgeous home is all decked out for Christmas, and tours are free.  No reservations are accepted, but groups larger than 10 may wish to contact the Colorado Historical Society at (303) 866-3682, to inform them of their expected arrival time and numbers.

Today we highlight three more bands from The Big Chili Cook-Off. The community was really thrilled with the music. Kudos to the musicians and the singers!

The Bucktones are one of the most versatile bands in the Denver area. The band includes Evergreen locals Jeff Scarborough and Jerry Grannell, along with John Bertalan on percussion and Kathleen Widlund singing. They will be appearing December 16th at Crossroads in Pine, Co. Check here for contact information.

The 3eatles are the Denver area’s authentic Beatles tribute band. You can listen to the music of The Beatles the way it was intended to be heard! Check here for their set list.

We also loved listening to Joe Bye and Friends. Joe Bye’s infectious style of high energy acoustic rock has made him a local favorite with a diverse fan base. Every show is different depending on which “Friends” Joe brings along. You can connect with Joe on facebook. Joe Bye will be at Crossroads Pub & Grill tonight, November 25th, at 6:30.
