In an effort to get to know some of our 2012 Best of Pueblo winners a bit better, we asked Jason Cipriani, your Gold choice for Best Local Blogger, what he thinks rates as tops in town — besides himself.

Q: What’s your favorite place in Pueblo County to eat out or grab a drink?

A: This is easy — Bingo Burger.

Q: What catches your eye on the menu?

A: The Boilermaker. No garden, over-easy, pink is just fine. Make it a combo.

Q: At the bar, what’s your poison?

A: I don’t frequent the bars, but I do frequent my fridge. Usually mixing up a Moscow Mule or grabbing a Blue Moon when the mood suits.

Q: Where do you go for a night out with friends?

A: As a father of three, do you honestly think I’ve experienced a night out with friends in the last year or so?

Q: What’s the best place for people watching?

A: The mall. (I bet everyone says that)

Q: Where do you take out-of-town guests?

A: Bingo Burger (naturally), Do Drop Inn, maybe the Res or Bishop Castle.

Q: Do you have a guilty pleasure?

A: Coffee.

Q: What’s your favorite place to shop?

A: Since I’m into tech, Best Buy is always fun to waste some time in.

Q: Who’s your hero?

A: I don’t have just one hero, I admire and look up to a number of people. Chuck Palahniuk and Steve Jobs are two that come to mind right away.

Q: What’s always on your TV, radio, or playlist?

A: Again, as a father of three my TV is usually filled up with Blue’s Clues, Yo Gabba Gabba or Word World. If, and that’s a big IF, I do get control of what’s on the TV it’s going to be House of Cards or Game of Thrones.

Rev89 is fun to listen to during the course of a semester. It typically starts off with two kids unsure of themselves on air and by the end of the term its turned them into a better product — most of the time.

Playlist? I have a “blawgin’ playlist” that includes the likes of Vampire Weekend, Kid Cudi, Givers, Limp Bizkit, Frank Ocean and Kanye West. It’s a diverse playlist to say the least.
