Loveland is ever changing on all aspects. This includes the school district, arts community, cultural events and business.
In my travels around Loveland this week, I have noted a couple of these business changes. This is in addition to what I posted about Anthology Books new coffee and cafe area.
I was at George’s Pizza and Gyros (104 East 29th Street –in Palmer Gardens) to have lunch with good friend and fellow writer Jim Willard. Jim writes the trivia column in the Reporter-Herald, and we have been friends since 1969.
In our almost quarterly get-togethers for lunch, we have traveled to many Loveland eateries. On this occasion, we stopped by George’s Pizza and Gyros for some time to eat and chat.
I had seen recently that George’s Pizza and Gyros had applied for a liquor license. Well, it looks like starting on August 13, you can have a cold one with your meal.
George’s will be closed on Sunday for training and to do the switchover.
Another place I go to much more frequently is Daddy-O’s Green Onion (2277 West Eisenhower) in the Safeway Center on West Eisenhower. This is near my house and is one of my “temporary offices” and meeting places.
Terry and his wife do a great job with the sandwiches there. I also get to share what is going on in the business world with Terry for a few minutes as he does things around the restaurant.
Starting last week, The Green Onion will by open on Sundays. This is a first for this long-time Loveland restauranteer.
On my last visit to Daddy-Os, Cindy who paints the windows of businesses was updating the artwork on Daddy-O’s Her designs are really eye-catching.
I will be doing a profile on Cindy, the owner of art2ya, for the Berthoud Surveyor newspaper in a couple of weeks. Art2ya does the windows in many Berthoud businesses. Art2ya does murals, windows logos, etc. She has a theme (sunflowers right now-butterflies before that) that she uses on the Berthoud businesses. Many, including the Berthoud Surveyor office, on Mountain Avenue have sprouted painted sunflowers.
