Beer and bikes may be the city’s claim to fame, but don’t let that fool you. Fort Collins also has a reputation for good eats. So, if you’re a food connoisseur, grab your friends and join your city, local restaurants and eateries in Downtown Fort Collins tonight for their monthly “Foodie Walk”.
This event, a self-guided culinary adventure through the beautiful, historic pedestrian-area of the city, features new food presentations, tasting opportunities and themes each month and was created precisely for the average “foodie”. With over twenty breweries scattered throughout the city, it’s also a great excuse to grab a beer – because it’s Friday in Fort Collins!
So, who exactly is a foodie?
They are people who love the consumption, study, preparation and recreation of all types of food. Foodies want to acquire more information regarding science, industry, ingredients, history and characters surrounding menu items. You can often spot a foodie in Downtown Fort Collins because culinary shops here truly focus on having unique quality ingredients and locally-sourced, organic produce in their shops.
According to Mark Bittman, the New York Times leading food columnist, “It’s rewarding to find the best pork bun; it’s even more rewarding to fight for a good food system at the same time. That’s what we foodies do.”
Here are seven signs to determine whether or not YOU are a foodie.
Did you establish that you are, in fact a foodie? If so, the Fort Collins Foodie Walk is sure to offer a way for you and your friends to explore and enjoy the world of Northern Colorado food and spices! The event will begin at 5:00 p.m. and run until 8:00 p.m.
