Best Margarita, Mexican Restaurant

Best Bartender

The Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant 825 9th Street

There’s a reason three’s the limit. Whether you choose the original or the signature manberry margarita, the best margarita in town is made with the same recipe and integrity the owners introduced more than 27 years ago. With a spacious patio and one of the fastest kitchens around, your meal is ready before you’ve finished that first margarita. Be sure to make happy hour from 3–6 p.m. every Monday through Friday. Don’t forget to try the guacamole!

Kim Mason The Crvsh Room/Moxi Theater 915 16th Street

A warm and welcome face greets those walking into The crvsh room. With bartender Kim Mason, it doesn’t take long to feel right at home. Those who know her say she treats a new patron the same as one she’s known for years. She keeps drinks full and has the vodka lemonade down to a T.

Local Radio Host


George Gray & the Big Kahuna

Joann Angus

George Gray and the Big Kahuna: Well, here’s the formula for a hit radio show: You get this guy who makes you believe that Elvis really isn’t dead, but living in Greeley, and pair him up with a big, friendly (maybe Hawaiian) guy and they start the show before the sun comes up in the morning, telling jokes, talking about Greeley and spinning records from the 1930s, ‘40s, ‘50s and early ‘60s. We looked up “Kahuna,” and it means he’s a priest, sorcerer, magician, or Shaman. We’re not sure what Our Kahuna is, but we like him. Who knew people would love them both? Maybe because they’re just cute and cuddly. Nah. Couldn’t be that. They also have Bob Bernd doing the news in the morning. Bob is the only Greeley newsman who actually knew Horace Greeley. It makes for one heck of a morning radio show on Pirate Radio 104.7 FM.

Let’s see now – there are a large number of people on this planet who actually ENJOY standing in front of 25 students (or many more) several times each day and trying to get them to LEARN. We’re not sure if these people are certified crazies, or just good people who want kids to succeed. We’ll believe the latter.

Joann Angus at St. Peter’s School teaches middle school science and math, and has taught in the middle schools for 21 years. We think the kids and parents of St. Peter’s got together and flooded the voting because they love their favorite teacher. It was enough to win this race.

Best Family Activity

Best Park for a Picnic

Family Fun Plex

Glenmere Park

Family Fun Plex: They’ve got four large pools, including one for tykes, and one with rushing water, so all you have to do is relax and let the water do the exercise. They have these long, dark tunnels you can slide down (at 120 mph or so) and crash into the nice, soft water. In the pool that has current pushing you into a figure 8, they also have a giant bucket that drops about a skillion gallons of water on you every few minutes. They’ve got basketball, volleyball, weight-lifting, stationary bikes, miniature golf, baseball and softball fields, a large venue for concerts and company picnics, and ducks and geese (no, you can’t hunt them).

Glenmere Park has only been here for about 150 years, and without a doubt anyone who lived in Greeley has been to that park. Big trees, a pond with an island, ducks and geese and lions and tigers and bears, we think. Glenmere has a great playground for kids, picnic areas, fish in the pond, stone benches along the shore for fishing or just contemplating life as you sit and listen to the quiet. What else could you want? Well – restrooms, maybe. The restrooms are located under the park’s gazebo, and they’re dark, even in the daytime. It gets scarier when the lights come on. And, everyone knows that the ghost of Ralphie Glenmere will grab you if you don’t watch out.

Book or Novel

Comic Strip

The Bible


The Bible. C’mon! Did you really think some other book would beat out the Bible in this category? We heard even the Angels were voting. It is, of course, the largest selling book in the world with 25 million copies sold every year. That’s more than Harry Potter and 50 Shades of Gray combined. You just don’t mess with those angels.

Zits is about a teen-ager with parents he drives crazy, a Volkswagen bus he just drives like crazy, a bedroom he never cleans, a family refrigerator which seems to always be empty, friends who are a little looney, a girlfriend who tries in vain to make him human. In other words, it’s a true story. Anyone who has a teen-age son or whoever was once a teen themselves can relate to Zits.

4 Harry Potter novels (by J. K. Rowling) 4 “50 Shades of Grey” (by E. L. James) 4 “From a Dead Sleep” (by John Daly)

4 Pickles 4 Family Circus

Community Event Stampede OK, you are country folk after all – we never thought this category could be won by anything else. We’ve got cowboys and horses and bulls and horses and cowgirls and horses and country singers and carnival rides and an art show, and a booth that sells water pitchers made from a cow’s leg and pig races and little kids trying to ride sheep and big kids trying to ride a bull that’s bigger than a horse trailer and a food area where you can buy a Twinkie fried on a stick. Can it get any better than that? The Greeley Stampede struggled for a couple of years, and many of us were saddened when it was rumored that they’d have to cancel the summer celebration. But the Stampede Committee members (you’ll know them by their purple sequined hats) pulled it off this year, made a profit and will be staying around. Yee-Haah!!

Thank You for naming us your favorite medical facility in Greeley!

Knowing the best care you could hope for is located just a few miles away comes as a huge relief for residents of northern Colorado. Especially when you consider that only the top 2% of the country’s 4,500 hospitals received such recognition. And only one, North Colorado Medical Center, received this honor in northern Colorado. That sort of kudos, so close by, will surely reduce your stress level. And that’s a healthy thing. • Connect with us:
