Hey, Spike! welcomes Vettes, woodies

Special to the DailyDaniella Marin with instructor Nathan.

This a rumbling loud weekend for Summit County as 600-plus fiberglass Chevy Corvettes cruise around the blacktop while classic wooden speedboats ply the clear waters of Frisco Bay Marina and Lake Dillon.

Hey, Spike! welcomes the Looking Glass Corvette Association and the Rocky Mountain Classics Chapter of the Antique and Classic Boat Society.


While some folks stick to the roadways, others to the waterways, Daniella Marin, an estrellita at the Hacienda Real restaurant over between Safeway and Walmart, recently took the the air – skydiving.

Daniella joined friends Anthony Weleski, Heather Harmon and Brian Teteak, who was marking his 30th birthday by jumping out of a good airplane.

“For someone that was scared of jumping from the side of a small pool, I feel like this was a great accomplishment,” says Daniella. “Would I do it again? I would do it every day if I could.”


Frisco matriarch (Frisco Lodge and Pink Plant Place) Jody Anderson and former local first lady Bonnie Moscatelli, now of Denver, were seen out and about chatting with Police Chief Tom Wickman and Clara Webb.


At Backcountry Brewery on Monday noon, movie star, oil spill solution investor, and rock ‘n roller Kevin Costner and a buddy were grabbing a to-go lunch, report Woody Van Gundy’s staffers. 

Kevin is also spotted in the Cindy and Barry Abramowitz’ Butterhorn Bakery for breakfast now and then, when he’s headed to Aspen or back to DIA.


The Frisco Fine Art Gallery, managed by Eugenia Ersu, on Old Main Street, enjoyed an evening soriee recently.

Attending were The Koentges Family of Patrick, Laurie, Alexandra, Phil and Anne, Paul Jr., and Tera, Paul Sr., Nancy Chase, and Kate Boinard.

The gallery has Plein Air painting workshops scheduled for the next five weekends on the patio.
