All this appears to help pull in more tourists, with receipts from the city's 3 percent lodging tax up 17.4 percent through September of this year, compared with the same period in 2004 - one of the best showings in the state, according to Debbie Flynn Kovalik, head of the Grand Junction Visitor and Convention Bureau.
But the best indication of the area's emergence as a place to relax and enjoy life, she suggests, may be the opening of not one, but two party-rental stores - whose tents and tables are enabling wineries to host catered tasting dinners at $50 a head.
"The quality of the experience has changed," Kovalik says. "We're pulling in groups like the Colorado Parks and Recreation Association.

"Sometimes people will respond a little more to their ego," said Debbie Kovalik, executive director of the Grand Junction Visitor & Convention Bureau.
Having a schedule of donation levels that correspond to the grandness of an area also can be an opportunity to "upsell" those donations, Kovalik said. For instance, if someone donates $30,000, asking for an additional $20,000 for the opportunity to have a room named after them could be a big selling point, she said.
Still, even with a donor naming rights schedule, nine of 11 donors who have given so far, who each have donated $50,000, have said they are not interested in any special acknowledgement, Kovalik said.
The naming committee also is considering creating a donor wall that distinguishes gift sizes, a tactic common in other capital campaigns.
"What I've learned from the (Avalon) Foundation is the majority of people have not asked for recognition, except for their name on a donor wall," Kovalik said.
