Opening in spring 2019, Asterisk is a venue that will bring community and events together under one roof.

Located in the up-and-coming Arapahoe Park area, adjacent to RiNo, Asterisk can host groups up to 1,500 reception-style and over 800 for dining events in the main hall. Smaller groups can be be accommodated with multiple special event entities set up in the space from catering stations to dancing areas and a presentation stage.

The interior is designed with intent to be more of a blank palette, so planners can infuse the space with their own vision. The venue also includes access to a 1,700-square-foot rooftop deck that can be used for events only or in combination with the main hall. The second floor offers a boardroom that can also be used as a preparation or green room for entertainment groups or wedding parties.

The venue catering list includes the following: A Spice of Life, Biscuits and Berries, Catering by Design, Epicurean Culinary Group, Footers Catering, Occasions Catering, Relish Catering Company and Three Tomatoes.

Asterisk is currently offering a pre-booking incentive special by offering 20% off venue rental rates for all events that book prior to March 1, 2019 and host their event in 2019. Additional discounts apply for a multi-day, event rental opportunity.

Lumière with Inspirato in partnership with Telluride Ski & Golf announced a new collection of small group experiences, the Forum Retreat Packages.

 

It has been an incredible winter to travel around to various Colorado ski resorts as the snow conditions have been nothing short of terrific. Snowmass, Vail, Beaver Creek, Winter Park, Steamboat Springs, Monarch and Keystone have been part of my Winter 2018/2019 ski agenda, in addition to my home mountain Crested Butte Mountain Resort of course. I’ve written about a couple of these excursions lately and want to share some of the happenings and experiences that are group-friendly and a lot of fun in Steamboat Springs.

 

A recent visit to Grand County confirmed that if I lived closer, I would definitely spend more time there. Isn’t that how you want attendees leaving a meeting or event in the destination you chose, saying “That was so fun, I can’t wait to return!”?

What I like about Grand County is the diversity of experiences you can have in an area that isn’t overly busy and has a lot of charm. There is a ton of open space, and the locals are friendly. Pretty much all of my experiences in Grand County are winter-based so that is my focus here, but summer and fall are equally as nice.
