The New England Patriots aren't the only ones who have a knack for being the best in February.

The Home Loan Taste of the Grand Valley features a lot of outstanding food year after year and the people attending vote for their favorites in various categories. Invariably, Cowboy and the Rose is one of the winners. They always have an excellent presentation, the food is delicious, and they give out a lot of it. Consequently, they win again.

Of course, at the Taste of the Grand Valley, it's really not all about winning. It's about giving folks a chance to sample what the Grand Valley has to offer, and to raise funds for United Way of Mesa County. Plus, it's a fun event because you never know who you will run into.
