Stroll through the large wooden gate past the overflowing petunia baskets and blue umbrellas on the outside patio and there’s a good chance you might be able to find your state’s license plate nailed to the log wall. For those with an adventurous spirit, there’s plenty of game on the walls and a wide, wide selection of wild game on the menu. Welcome to The Gashouse.
One does not need to take more than a few steps inside to know that there would be some tales to tell if these walls could talk. The restaurant itself may have 33 years of history, but the antique pumps in the back room reflect the historical roots honoring the building’s history as a gas station, general store, and post office dating all the way back to the 1930s. Each one of the trophy heads has a tale behind it — some bigger than others. Just ask co-owner Andy Guy, and be prepared for a whopper or two.Learn more »

A bocce ball rolls by and you can hear shouts of excitement ring through the summer air. Yep, no doubt about it, you’re at Zino Ristorante, at Riverwalk in Edwards.

The little patch of blooming columbines reminds you you’re still in the Rockies. Co-owner and executive chef Nick Haley proudly states, while smiling, “You can’t go wrong with our outdoor patio and bocce court…I even had my wedding reception here.”Learn more »
