If you’ve been following along on Instagram, then you know that I spent a long weekend last week with Stella Artois at the Sundance Film Festival. And it was awesome. I had never been to Sundance before (or Park City for that matter), and I was super excited to get there and experience all the excitement firsthand. We kicked off the weekend with a welcome dinner at 501 on Main, and the food was so delicious.
We stayed at the Newpark Resort Hotel which was just a short drive from the Main Street / downtown area, and the rooms were so, so nice. This room was seriously HUGE and included a gas fireplace, a kitchenette, and a big balcony with a jacuzzi on it. Every morning I had my coffee in bed with the fireplace going, looking out on a snowy mountain view. It was the best way to start my day and such a cozy place to come home to at night.
The Stella Artois team had the cutest lounge set up on Main Street, and it became our sort of home away from home on the trip. It was a comfy spot to thaw out, listen to live music, grab a snack (thankfully since we could not get into any restaurants in town – everything was booked solid) and enjoy cold Stellas and Cidre hot toddies. There was also a limited edition chalice shop helping to give access to clean water to communities without. (You can find more info on that partnership here.) This was also the place where we listened in on an amazing Women in Film panel, joined in on a Sunday night hip-hop dance party, and did most of our celebrity spotting.
On Sunday we went on a snowmobiling excursion, and it was SO MUCH FUN. I’ll admit that I was a little nervous at first and maneuvering this beast machine was a little aggressive, but once I got the hang of it, I was hooked. It’s really a shame that Orange County’s weather doesn’t support my new favorite hobby. Guess it just means I’ll have to make my way back to the snow a little more often.
And then there were the movies – it was Sundance after all. Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not much of a movie buff and don’t even watch much TV these days, but seeing movies in a tiny theater in the presence of all the people that helped make that movie possible was totally cool.
Kathleen and I saw Search together on Sunday night, and we loved it. It was like a Dateline murder mystery (one of my TV faves) on the big screen set in this crazy cyber world we live in. It was so cool to hear from the film’s director and cast during a Q&A after the movie, and afterwards we walked over to Twisted Fern for dinner. This was definitely my favorite meal of the trip – the brussels sprouts appetizer, house red wine, and the lentil-mushroom burger were all amazing. (Thankfully we could get into restaurants that were a bit out of town.)
Overall it was an amazing trip with some pretty great people, and when it came time to leave, I was pretty sad to go. Sundance was such a cool experience, and Park City was so beautiful. But after one last delicious bite to eat at the High West Distillery in the Salt Lake City Airport (thanks to this recommendation from Female Foodie), it was back home to the husband and the pup.
Here’s hoping everyone has a great week ahead!
Thank you so much to Stella Artois for the amazing trip. All opinions are my own.
