Romancing the Stars

Star Gazing in the Taos Ski Valley

Taos Ski Valley DiningThe Blonde Bear Tavern will be serving a gourmet dinner followed by star gazing on two moonless nights this summer: August 11th and September 8th at 7:00 pm. Geoff Goins, owner of Night Sky Adventures, will bring the universe to our guests through one of the largest telescopes in New Mexico.

Night Skies in Taos**The annual Perseids Meteor Shower – the most famous of all meteor showers – will be peaking on the evening of August 11th. Each year as the Swift -Tuttle comet orbits the Sun it sheds a long debris stream along its orbit. When Earth travels through the path of this debris a meteor shower is born. During the peak, the rate of meteors reaches 60 or more per hour.

The Menu

The prix fixe menu is Piedmont-inspired – an Italian region also known for its spectacular Alpine night skies. And the dates correspond with Taos Ski Valley’s local chanterelle season – so if Mother Nature cooperates, these fabulous mushrooms will be a part of the menu.
