Tweet All About It: Up, up and away
Each week, we pick out our favorite and not-so-favorite tweets (at least those that are printable) about Aspen and display them on Sunday’s page A2.
• “And just like that the week trip is over, that went by way too fast. See you next year Aspen! #skilife #aspen #xgames” — @benspiegel
• “Looking forward to some of this in Aspen. It’s been a while since I’ve been on the slopes there and played @BellyUpAspen. So excited for both! Hope to see you Tuesday for the show. It’s always exciting to play in those altitudes” — @rufuswainwright
• “I flew hot air balloons out of Aspen in the late 80’s, that’s where I learned there appeared to be two walls, the jet stream and the Rockies, that kept cold air at bay. And that’s the reason we’re staying west of the Rockies” — @iJakeReyna
• “I once listened to practically only to B.B. King for a full year. Never saw him live. I tried in Aspen but it was sold out — so I found my way to BB’s bus to ask if I could meet him. A man replied ‘Do you know how old BB is? He’s sleeping.’ love you BB. #BlackHistoryMonth” — @ericfdash
• “I’m over here tellin my sister about my Amsterdam and Aspen trips and she bragging about how she spent New Years in Tokyo and went on a ski trip in northern Japan Just sh-t on my lil trips” — @Consistent__D
