Tipis outside Storm King Distilling Co. (City of Montrose)

Chances are the answer is yes. But you might not know that the tipis were actually repurposed from shut-down music festivals. The Colorado Yurt Company worked together with the City of Montrose’s Development and Revitalization Team to provide the available tipis to restaurants in need of outdoor seating last fall. 

Now that initiative has won the Colorado Governor’s Award for Downtown Excellence: People's Choice. You can read the full story here.

What do you think of the tipis and the award the plan received? Did they make you feel safer or more excited to eat out?
