Nancy Good – Owner, Property Management Company in Steamboat

I first came to Steamboat to be here with my now Husband, Jeff Good! I started as a bookkeeper at Harwigs in 1990 and worked in the office with Sandy until around 1998. My kids were nursed, fed and napped in the room right next to the office! These days I still have a few bookkeeping clients and Jeff and I now have our own business doing property management for high-end second-home owners. I also follow my kids around Europe. Jasper is there all the time training, and Sierra is studying in Spain for the year!

Erica Lane – Photographer, Blogger & Designer

Harwigs for sure has a special place in my heart as my first job and I have so many great memories there. Whether it was the great people I met, having hot lunch there while attending Emerald Mountain School with JJ, or hosting my parents’ anniversary parties over the years, Harwigs has always been our go to when celebrating, and I swear has the BEST food in town. I've tried French onion soup in over 25 countries and Harwigs still wins hand down! I was born and raised in Steamboat. My parents used to eat at Harwigs back when it [...]

Alexandra Josfan – Account Manager for Go Overseas

I was born and raised in Steamboat and first started working at Harwigs in May of 2015 (I believe) as a hostess/back wait. One day at Harwigs I was proposed to by a customer in a kind of "don't kill the messenger" situation. The customer was so pleased with his food, he was moved to ask me, the person bringing him the delicacy, to be his wife. If he could've married the food, he probably would have started there. Since I last worked at Harwigs, I spent a year studying in Spain, a month studying in Colombia, graduated college in [...]

Aaron McDougal – Waiter

What first brought me to Steamboat was a red ’98 Jetta with two other guys and as much ski sh*t as we could fit. I started at Harwigs in 2013 I think, as a back waiter. I have some fun stories from working at Harwigs but none that I’m willing to put into writing! Needless to say, the crew here is a lot fun. I’m still working at Harwigs today, but when I’m not there I’m traveling.

Ira Harmon – Sommelier

I first came to Steamboat to be a ski bum and think I accomplished that. I started working at Harwigs on Valentine’s Day 1987.  Four people called in sick and Jamie called and asked If I could help open up bottles. That is where my story with L’Apogee/Harwigs began. I have been selling wine and teaching wine ever since. I am now a Master Sommelier and I have mentored 41 other Master Somm’s at some point in their journey. Giving back is important to me, just as it is for Harwigs.

Gregory Block – Artist

I've never had a job at the restaurant. My resume may include some embarrassing items, but decidedly not Harwigs. However, in 2009, I'd just graduated from Colorado College with a biology degree and was resolved to spend the year working to make it as an artist. I had a bunch of mechanical wooden sculptures on hand from a college project, and wanted to put together an exhibition of them somewhere in Steamboat. The guys at Harwigs graciously acquiesced to letting me fill the upstairs with all these strange gadgets and lights and paintings, and from the moment I stepped foot [...]
