The week ahead is action-packed with some of Telluride’s culinary attractions coming back on the scene with the return of the Farmer’s Market and the re-opening of Pescado as well as LOTS of live music! The highlight of this is obviously the start of next weekend’s highly anticipated Bluegrass Festival on Thursday. Look for more info on the Bluegrass festival as next weekend approaches.
