Stopped on my way back to Evergreen in Vail. One of my favorite restaurants, a local joint called The George. It is in the basement of Vail village off the beaten path from normal tourists to the mountain. Surf and turf for 20 bucks. During this visit I met Niki and Justin who live in Vail. Niki just joined the peace corp and Justin is an avid snowboarder, tattoo artist. They participate in couch surfing and offered me a place to crash in an awesome ski chalet, which I gladly accepted. Really chill, fun people. Mixing it up with the locals.
