This is a little bitter sweet as this is my last post from Aspen. We explored downtown the other day and seriously fell in love with the charming old-town vibe of Aspen. It was in the 40s and half of the snow was already gone. Although getting around was much easier, I would have preferred more snow - strangely, coming from a person who has the tropicals at heart.
We had brunch at the Meatball Shack (inserted photo below). Gotta tell you, it was a hit. I am not very good at describing foods so I'm just gonna leave it at 4.5 out of 5 star rating. The half star gone was because most tables were bar height and not very shortie-friendly (I'm 5ft tall). We ordered soup of the day Chicken Tortilla, Shrimp Salad and a Shack Mac and Cheese. Wait, we didn't order any meatballs. I'm not sure why come to think of it. Anyways, it was a lovely experience. We loved the food and the ambience.
For those who wants to shop, Downtown has a small strip of shops, including from independent boutiques to mid-range and luxury ones such as Fendi, Valentino and Burberry. All the holiday window displays were so cute and the snow made them even more festive. I loved it. I loved it all. If you have visited Aspen before, I'd love to hear your thoughts.
Happy Holidays my loves!
