Saying Goodbye To Boogie’s Diner in Aspen

Saying Goodbye To Boogie’s Diner in Aspen

Inside the towering atrium in the heart of downtown Aspen, Boogie’s classic family-style diner was opened by Leonard “Boogie” Weinglass in 1987. Since then it has been the only place to get that true 1950’s diner feel in town, with pink vinyl booths and memorabilia on the walls of rockstar friends of Boogie’s , kids who were televised on American Bandstand and more images from the 50’s.

It was a fun place for parents to gather and pack kids into the booths, while waiters and waitresses served them up french fries, burgers and shakes, 50’s style. If all went well, parents could even slip downstairs to spice up their wardrobes while kids got loud in the restaurant upstairs.

It is very sad for us to see long standing establishments owned by locals go out of business, and we wanted to say a proper good-bye so we went back for more interviews with  Sammy Steen, Mike Delaney of BLK MKT, and this time were able to capture Boogie’s daughter, Skye Bird, along with Josh Fox of Thrashclub.Com, both of whom helped to put the pop-up store together before the building exchanged hands with the new owners.

How Nature Heals, A Story From #l....As the story from the forest unraveled while we were skinning through it, other stories were revealed and I began to collect the information for a possible future children’s book; the snow crystals sparkling like diamonds in the sun, the white ice crystals of hoarfrost layered upon the snow, and as I absorbed the textures with my eyes, I realized that I also felt the textures from within and it was inexplicably soothing. We have been forced to slow down during this Pandemic, allowing us the opportunity to reflect deeply about our place in the world. For many of us revelations are happening daily, but if we are filled with anxiety, or can’t move beyond our depression, we will not allow the revelations to seep in and we will miss the magic. Meditation helps immensely to create mindfulness about the chatter that leads to the anxiety, as does listening to the journeys of others as they get raw in their pain while enduring heart break and loss. As we repeatedly witness, the world can be a scary place where humanity can be careless, selfish and hateful, but humanity and compassion can also heal us to a place where we are able to see the world as healing rather than a place we want to escape from, but you need to get raw with it. Face it head on, so that you can create space and breathe, which will allow you to slowly shed the anxiety and the depression so that you can strengthen from within and persevere, no matter what is going on around you. Get outside in nature, and nurture it as it nurtures you.Read More at ...
