Offbeat Adventures in Fort Collins, Colorado

Presented by New Belgium Brewing

It’s hard to go wrong in Fort Collins, Colorado, repeatedly ranked as one of the best towns in America and known as heaven-on-earth for lovers of beer, bikes, bands, and boats — but it can be tough to narrow down the choices on your offbeat adventure to-do list. Named for an old military camp, the charming city marches to the beat of its own quirky drum and is in the midst of celebrating its 150th birthday year. With New Belgium’s Tour de Fat getting ready to make its way home to where the infamous brewery was born in 1991 — ultimately launching the epic, craft-beer boom that now defines the city — you can count on the fiercely proud and eccentric locals going out of their way to ensure that this is the fattest stop on the tour. Hip and adventurous without trying, once you get a taste of FoCo flavor you won’t want to leave. … Read More

Trailer: Bravo’s ‘The Singles Project’ Is Reality TV in Real Time

Presented by Bravo

Bravo’s reality slate has long been a leader in the genre. But they’re upping the ante with The Singles Project, premiering Tuesday, August 12, at 10/9 central. The show is shot on a seriously accelerated (especially for reality programming) schedule, meaning that the six men and women looking for love are going from date night to prime time within a day or two. What this means for viewers: your reactions to their dates and recommendations for the singles on social media will have a legitimate impact. As the trailer says, it’s up to you to “help them find the one” in New York City. An interesting experiment to say the least! … Read More

Offbeat Adventures in Chicago

Presented by New Belgium

It stands to reason that Chicago’s second-city complex would lead to a lot of validation-seeking boasting and bragging – and it sure can. But there’s also that pesky Midwestern meekness, not to mention a well-learned, necessity-birthed knack for the clandestine (see our storied histories of speakeasies, house-music loft parties, alternative-exhibition galleries, etc.), both of which contribute to an undeniable fact: This town can keep a secret. Without giving away too much, we’ve decided to open the vault on a few favorite hidden gems, off-the-beaten-path highlights, and obscure delights, plus one bonus offbeat adventure: New Belgium’s Tour de Fat, an annual celebration of “bikes, beer & bemusement,” lands Saturday, July 12th at Palmer Square with a bike parade, dance contest, live music, and thousands of local cycling enthusiasts. Don’t miss it! … Read More
