The Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, not too far from Fort Collins, is the hotel in "The Shining."  My wife and I stayed there for a week-end one summer ---- wanted to stay longer, but escaped.  :)
I've been to The Stanley. It is the hotel that inspired the book by Stephen King but not the hotel seen in the movie which is in Oregon.

I tell everyone that comes to the Frontrange to drink plenty of water.  You will dehydrate at this elevation and not even know it.  Folks from Arkansas need to start drinking a lot of water at least a week out if you are coming to the game.  If it is a night game it gets chilly fast as soon as the Sun goes down over the mountains.

Skied in Aspen for 25+ years and never did any "pre" game work. I'm sure it impacts some worse than others, but I never saw any in our group bothered.

Buddy's bed and breakfast is a nostalgic choice for me.  They also have a bar and grill and Sarge, the main chef, is a woman who can cook anything and conk a dishwasher over the head with a frying pan with her right hand while deep frying onion rings with the other. 

Lots of hog memorabilia on the walls including an autographed Loyd Phillips jersey that is my personal favorite of all the junk he has up in there.

Tell them Skandar sent you and you can get the all you care of eat breakfast made to order featuring catheads and red eye gravy and sugar cured ham and fried eggs and taters by the long ton in all configurations know to man. 

Doubt they have any vacancy but if you're looking for a good spot before or after the game (they're open until 2:00 am on game nights) it's worth a visit.

How to find a parking pass for Kentucky game
« Reply #20608 on: February 19, 2018, 08:46:34 pm »

Does anybody know of a way to buy a parking pass for tomorrow night (preferably in lot 60 or 62) otherwise we’ll probably go for someone’s yard.

Thanks!

I used to just pull up really slowly to the attendants, then just as they start walking my way, I just gunned it right past them into lot 56.  I made several circles around the lot and found a spot. 

Only one time was there a maverick attendant, who literally made it his mission to make sure I didn’t get a spot.  He came up to me and asked me if I was the guy that just drove past him.  I said, “no, I think it was that guy” and pointed towards the Bud.  Never saw him again. 

Fun times as a young college student :)

That is probably true for younger folks that are 50 and younger.  I have lived here for 23 years and I am 64 so I'm used to it.

Located it and have put it on Sandy's and my "to do" list ---- perhaps right after the Colorado State game if we can make it to Fort Collins.  Would be a nice road trip.

"Timberline Lodge is a mountain lodge on the south side of Mount Hood in Clackamas County, Oregon, about 60 miles (97 km) east of Portland. Constructed from 1936 to 1938 by the Works Progress Administration, it was built and furnished by local artisans during the Great Depression. Timberline Lodge was dedicated September 28, 1937, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt."

"The National Historic Landmark sits at an elevation of 5,960 feet (1,817 m), within the Mount Hood National Forest and is accessible through the Mount Hood Scenic Byway.[3] Publicly owned and privately operated, Timberline Lodge is a popular tourist attraction that draws two million visitors annually.[4] It is notable in film for serving as the exterior of the Overlook Hotel in The Shining."

Gotta give a shout out to Mama Z's in Tonitown for very casual, good italian food. Enjoyed the beans and cornbread there once as well.
Now that is the truth.  Mama Z's is one of the best kept secrets in NW Arkansas.

Which SEC Stadium is at the top of your bucket list?

SEC fans love Death Valley, have major beef with Neyland Stadium


Quote
SEC stadiums mentioned in a positive manner — either as a place fans want to visit or a place they’ve enjoyed visiting. There’s a clear winner:

    LSU’s Tiger Stadium (19)
    Florida’s Ben Hill Griffin Stadium (7)
    Texas A&M’s Kyle Field (7)
    Alabama’s Bryant-Denny Stadium (6)
    Auburn’s Jordan-Hare Stadium (6)

… but they have major beef with Neyland Stadium

Sure, Neyland received 5 votes in our unscientific poll, while poor Missouri finished at the bottom with zero. But the level of completely unprompted hatred for Knoxville’s crown jewel...

Things have changed quite a bit. There's been a huge influx of chain restaurants in that time, from along 6th street where you're staying, to the area around the mall. Springdale still has its old classics of AQ and Neal's Cafe, but I haven't been to either in so long I couldn't speak to their quality. Bentonville is now the rising star for eateries, with a large influx of popular chains, along with a sizable selection of boutique restaurants ... most of which will make your wallet sweat. So you have lots of choices now, just not many old style family places like there used to be.

For anyone asking about family style eats that won't break the bank, my first suggestion is always Monte Ne Inn. Yes, it's still there. And yes, it's still a drive from Fayetteville. I can, however, attest to its quality and price value.

Forgot about Monte ne.....it's a great place for a family meal that won't break the bank.

All you care to eat fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, and white bean soup. They bring it out in bowls and you pass it around your table.  And it's pretty good to boot. If you get a chance to drive out there, it wouldn't be a bad choice.

Just be prepared for a nap after.
