You Can Talk the Talk, But Can You Walk the Foodie-Walk? Determine if you fit the profile for Fort Collins’ Food Walk


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.

  1. The worst thing that could ever happen to you is to not like what you ordered when you go out to eat.
  2. Your friends are embarrassed to go to restaurants with you because you bombard the waitress with questions about where they get their ingredients.
  3. You rarely follow a recipe when cooking on your own time and experiment with different ingredients depending on what you’re in the mood for.
  4.  Your vacation plans revolve around finding the best places to eat in the area.
  5.  You get really excited and mark it on your calendar when a new grocery store is opening in your neighborhood.
  6.  You wake up in the morning and your first thought is what you’re going to have for breakfast. Then right after breakfast, you immediately think ahead to the next time you can eat again.
  7.  To you, FOOD = FUN.

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.
