Free Snowmass Concerts Kick Off Food & Wine Classic

Free Snowmass Concerts Kick Off Food & Wine Classic

Town is completely lit up in so many ways for the annual Food & Wine Classic and we at AspenRealLife are throwing ourselves into the scene as much as we can, beginning with Rustic Grind in Snowmass and the first free concert on Fanny Hill.

Our introduction to the Classic began yesterday at an Aspen Luxury Life Magazine private party located at a beautiful home by the river on one of our favorite streets in Aspen.

The food was Ethiopian cuisine, prepared by Etenesh Bertley, and complimented the drinks being served by Odell Brewing, Woody Creek Distillery and Impatience.

During the party part of our crew, Bear and Salvador, were up in Snowmass capturing the scene at Cochon555’s Rustic Grind, and then on to watch See-I on Fanny Hill, featuring members of Thievery Corporation. Little did we know that they would end up back stage fraternizing and photographing Ekow, Rootz & Zeebo, Joe and Greg for AspenRealLife.
