A disco diva in the wrong decade

One more week until I have to put away the white shoes.But then again, maybe not.The “What Not to Wear” gurus say white can go into winter. I’m particularly interested in finding some hot white boots if anyone knows where I can score a pair. Until then, I’ll make the most of my growing flip flop collection.Summer’s almost over, but there’s still time to get wet and wild in the river, soak up some sun by the pool and wear my Daisy Dukes.Um, that last part’s so not going to happen unless I find the perfect boots.

It’s happening in Glenwood Springs to boot: Whiskey For Our Men and Beer For Our Horses, western barbecue with live music by Heart of the Rockies, 59:30 p.m., Hotel Colorado, 526 Pine St., Glenwood Springs. Information: 945- 6511, ext. 111This is why I’d kick it up here: The first time I ever met Twirp Anderson of the Heart of the Rockies, he serenaded me with “Rocky Mountain High” at the Hurricane in Carbondale. Love that guy! Well, he and his band are giving a shout out to the Old West for a barbecue and barn dance minus the barn at the Hotel Colorado. Ya’ll wear those chaps and cowboy hats now, ya hear? Giddy-up.

It’s happening in Glenwood Springs to boot: Disco Night with boogie dancing, costume contests and $2 Harvey Wallbanger drink specials, 8:30-11:30 p.m., Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park, free tram ride after 8:30, no cover, must be 21 years or older. Information: 945-4228This is why I’d kick it up here: If I could go back in time, I think I would be a swingin’ single in the ’70s. I imagine I would be all over that disco club scene, attempting really bad dance moves while wearing blue eye shadow, hot-curled hair and suede platforms. “Boogie Shoes” and “Saturday Night Fever” would be my theme songs as I strut my stuff on the multi-colored dance floor that glows like a Simon Says electronic game. I won’t have to build a time machine – I’ll just take a quick ride up the tram to Funkytown.
