Living in Austin has sort of spoiled me with it's endless things to waste money on, music gathering galore, chess clubs, Buddhist groups, etc etc, tea rooms filled with board games, and a hustling nightlife. I wonder if Ft.Collins has a similar type of 'scene' with a variety of things to do late at night, sans booze.

I hear the beer scene up there is really booming, wondering about well, the rest as I've already stated.


Thanks!

Great questions, I look forward to the response.

Also interested to hear if there are outdoor music activities in the area in warm months. We are spoiled by what we have here and very curious to read more.

The Haunted Game Cafe and Gryphon Games and Comics have board game rooms. Haunted is also a coffee shop. Don't know about their hours.

Pinball Jones has a pinball league. They serve beer there, but partaking is not required.

The drive-in theater is a fun late night activity in the summer.

The first Friday evening of each month is a gallery walk in Old Town that is pretty interesting. The third Friday of the month is the foodie walk at participating gourmet shops in Old Town.

CSU has a performing arts center here in town and they put on some good performances.

You could check out the Midtown Arts Center dinner theater.

Meetup.com is a good place to find lots of different types of groups for special interests.

In the summer, there is a free concert series at the lagoon on the CSU campus on Wednesdays (Welcome to the Lagoon Series | Lagoon Summer Concert Series at CSU). There are lunch concerts on Tuesdays in Oak Street Plaza (Noontime Notes Concert Series | Downtown Fort Collins). Thursday evenings the music is in Old Town Square and presented by Bohemian Nights. Hopefully the re-construction of the Old Town Plaza doesn't impact those shows. Friday night concerts in Old Town are also popular. Some weekend shows are also held in Old Town Square.
Loveland and Windsor also have regular outdoor concert series in the summer. Windsor's is at Boardwalk Park (Windsor, CO - Official Website - Summer Concert Series) and Loveland's is at the Foote Lagoon (City of Loveland, CO : Foote Lagoon Concerts).

Good luck with your moves!

There are plenty of free non-drinking events in NoCo. I fly in from my TX abode and my WA abode to enjoy them. (Summer and winter).

It is no Austin, but there are a lot of similarities and nice regional stuff to enjoy.
