From the Street

Vail’s Hot Summer Nights – got off to an Expensive first start last Tuesday, June 9th 2015.  Admission to the event in Vail’s Ford Amphitheater is still Free, however…

After about (2) decades of being the main event sponsor – Budweiser was replaced (by the Vail Valley Foundation) this year with local “Crazy Mountain Brewery” as their title sponsor.

What was “Crazy” to the observant ECT folks was the amount of “Crazy Mountain” beverages NOT being consumed that first Tuesday night.  Tuesday evening’s weather was certainly accommodating enough, but the PRICES for a drink are SKY HIGH.

Example:  Two typical sized mixed drinks – came to $17.00 before you tipped your Hot Summer Nights bar tender…

Also – the gates at the Ford Pavilion opened earlier at 4:30PM this year.  (3) of Vail PD’s Finest were also on hand to make sure everyone enjoyed themselves inside the legal limits of consumption.  Something to think about if you plan to attend next week starting at 4:30PM…and the free Music starts around 6:30PM.

ECT’s advise?   Bring your designated driver with you – and a big wad of Cash…
