This Saturday was the Cloud’s second annual celebration of Foothills Animal Shelter with a very special Foothills for Foothills event.
Foothills has been serving Jefferson County since 1976.
Their work is funded by the support of our local Colorado Community. This year alone the shelter managed to take care of well over 10,000 puppies, cats and critters with a caring and thoughtful staff.
This year we continued our support for this great effort.
This year’s event was on Saturday, October 12 at Foothills Motorcycles in Lakewood with a huge sale on the terrific inventory of motorcycles at Foothills as part of it’s Annual Fall Sale.
96.9 the Cloud sold over 96 Smoked Pork Sliders with all the trimmings from our friends and advertising partners at Tin Star Smokehouse in Golden from 11-2.
Every penny of the BBQ proceeds from this event and a special Facebook Campaign will be donated to Foothills Animal Shelter.
We are very thankful to have been instrumental in building this meaningful event with our community partners with a special thank you to all.
We appreciate the work of Karen Rocznik and Jacquie Palisa (producer/host at Colorado & Company), Melissa Marten (pictured) and Chris Ritter from Foothills Motorcycles, Cate Longsworth and Andrew Schutt at Tin Star Smokehouse in Golden and our true friend Liz Maddy (marketing director at Foothills Animal Shelter).

Rain or shine there’s always a line at Tamale Kitchen on South Kipling and Belleview in Jefferson County.
It might very well be due to the ever tasty and always filling breakfast burritos and Mexican deliciousness served all day. For as long as anyone can remember there have always been breakfast burritos in Colorado.
Cloud Pick: Tamale Kitchen in Jeffco
The Cloud salutes this savory creation that begins with these key ingredients and ends with a nice warm tummy.
First, creamy rich chili, gently whipped and scrambled fresh eggs, nicely diced and roasted potato, shredded monterey jack cheese, all delicately wrapped in a warm fluffy flour tortilla.
At this point of culinary bliss your only real dilemmas: red or green chili, smothered or wrapped in foil.
Happy Mother and Daughter at Tamale Kitchen
Tamale Kitchen on Kipling and Belleview is a local treasure and worth the stop anytime. As winter’s alpine season finally begins, its every snow ski or boarders first stop (perhaps after Starbucks) in Jeffco.
On warmer days it’s also the first stop (okay, maybe second after Starbucks) of every golfer, alpine and mountain biker in the Colorado.
You have not loved and lost until one of the many pesky magpies at Fox Hollow Golf Course in Jefferson County steals your Tamale Kitchen breakfast burrito on the number one tee.
All rolled in a warm fluffy flour tortilla, gently whipped farm fresh eggs and cheese with legendary green chili pork gravy.
It’s the Cloud’s third birthday broadcasting in Jefferson County, Colorado.
To celebrate, we’re giving away our summertime Date Night at Arvada’s Hilton Garden Inn.

It’s a Date’cation from your friends at 96.9 the Cloud.

Right after 96.9 the Cloud signed on the air in 2016, it was clear to us that there was a need to seek out local Colorado bands that have what’s now known as “the cloud sound” that our listeners have come to expect.
We did not have to look far.
We made a remarkable discovery with our friends and advertising partners at The Buffalo Rose.
Emma Cole (lead vocal), Josh Hester, Seth Beamer and Caleb Thoemke.
The band has now toured most of the country and has appeared on i-Heart Media venues, NBC-TV and with our friends at Colorado Public Radio.
Not only truly gifted and talented musicians, but amazingly spirited and wonderful people.
We are Cloud Proud of Wildermiss and still air their music daily, including the bands latest release Hell or High Water:

The Galapagos islands are like no other chain of volcanic islands in the world!
Because of their remoteness, the Galapagos are pristine virtually undiscovered by mankind until 1535.
Because of this relative isolation, the plants, birds and marine animals that thrive here, were able to adapt to the harsh climate and varied ecosystems of the islands without intrusion from outside influences.
Who is a good fit for this trip?
This trip will appeal to the seasoned, able-bodied traveler who might have already been on a Safari but wants a closer interaction with uninhibited animal species both on land and in the water.
Contact us today for a complete deck of information by visiting our website or giving us a call here at our offices in Lakewood, Colorado at (303) 980-6483 (Ext. 1).
