Earning Your Turns and a New Moon Cafe Bloody Mary
I am skiing with my best friend at Keystone and she looks at me and says, if you ski Bergman Bowl with me, I will buy you a Bloody Mary from New Moon Cafe. Well, since New Moon Cafe has the best Bloody's on the mountain I could not refuse! My knees were shaking as we stood at the top of the bowl. It was a steep descent. I made a few turns, gained speed and ended up sliding the rest of the way down on my belly! I can't say I skied it well or even really at all but I did make it down the bowl and I earned my Bloody Mary. So, once we got to River Run Village we headed to the New Moon Cafe. We were just in time for happy hour and the Bloody Mary Bar was waiting for us! One of the reasons we love New Moon's Bloody Marys is that they have a build your own Bloody Bar. I love mine extra spicy, so I add more tabasco and extra celery. My best friend may not be a wimp on skis but she is a little wimpy when it comes to spice, so she does not add more tabasco but she does add 2 pieces of crispy bacon to her Bloody. We sit outside on the deck at New Moon, in the sun, under the blue Colorado skies, watching the skiers and snowboarders walk by. I am a little sore from my "belly run" but the Bloody Mary is taking away the aches and pains. We also ordered the buffalo chicken quesadilla to share and it was amazing! I would have never thought of putting blue cheese, chicken and buffalo sauce in a tortilla, but it was delicious and went great with the Bloody Marys. Our server was super friendly and as always we felt very welcomed at the New Moon Cafe! Ending our epic ski day at New Moon Cafe was perfect! My best friend and I have made a lot of memories skiing Keystone and sitting on the deck at the New Moon Cafe and today was another one for the books! The New Moon is our regular stop after skiing before we head back to our condo. This time we were staying in lovely Silver Mill 8239. We always stay with SummitCove Lodging, somewhere in River Run Village. The condos are super clean, the beds are comfy and if we call a vacation planner we receive a return guest discount, plus a coupon book. In the coupon book there is a coupon for 10% off at the New Moon Cafe. We love the coupons! It makes us feel like we are getting local prices, even on our Bloody Marys! Thanks for all the discounts SummitCove and thanks New Moon Cafe for the great Bloody Marys! I see more Bloody Marys in my future but I'm not too sure about skiing more bowls!
