Aspen, Colorado

    Some people go to Aspen for the skiing or to be around really wealthy people or maybe all of the above but I go for a couple of different reasons. The first being that I have family there so it's always great to see them and secondly is the food and drinks. No, I am not talking about the Aspen Club or some swank joint but a simple coffee shop and a bar/restaurant that has insanely good mexican food.
    First, Ink Coffee is the best coffee shop in the world. I have put this place to the test and they always win. The drink to get is a blended black and white which is a couple shots of espresso combined with dark chocolate and white chocolate. It's unreal.

Next, is Woody Creek Tavern, which is somewhat of a landmark in Aspen because Hunter S. Thompson would go there everyday and booze up. However, I love this place because it's on the opposite side of town and the food and drinks are simple but really good. I took some pictures of posters from the wall.
