Blizzard blasts the Taste of Vail...but it's all good
Taste of Vail mountaintop picnic
or barbecued flank steak sliders (better than anything else, which isn't saying much) -- because everything edible had been dumped on. With snow. And it sucked. But at least the people were cool, and more important, there was an Argonaut of alcohol.
