December 29th, 2021

Everyone loves Half Fast subs as a sandwich shop – but every college student knows what it means when someone asks you “Wanna grab a pitcher?” Half Fast knows what’s up when it comes to serving up the strongest alcoholic drinks you could possibly find on the University Hill. With each pitcher limited to 1 per person, here’s my top 3 choices for what to order when you feel like getting sloshed off of a 32 oz. pitcher of happiness. Strong Island Ice Tea – Just like a long island iced tea, but stronger and even BETTER. Some people refer to this one as a “strongo”... Read More

The Best Avocado Toast in Boulder

August 9th, 2020

I’ve always loved avocados. They are healthy, high in fiber and help to lower cholesterol. Avocado is packed with over 20 vitamins and minerals and practically anyone can eat them – as they are gluten free, dairy free, vegan and vegetarian. Many of those who live in Boulder eat alternative diets, and it’s no surprise we’ve been ranked one of the healthiest and happiest cities in the U.S. Maybe avocados have something to do with that. Alpine Modern Café is a peculiar local gem, located at the corner of 9th Street and College Avenue that is turning this amazing food into a delicious breakfast.... Read More

One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is to pay a visit to the Boulder Farmers Market. I love sampling the wide variety of local honey, salsa, and delicious vegetables, but never would I think to stumble upon something so unique as Joey’s Handheld Pancakes.

Sushi 101 and Where to Find the Best Bites in Boulder County

May 16th, 2016

Sushi is a traditional Japanese cuisine with a very unique selection and etiquette. In Boulder, Colorado it seems unlikely that seafood would be of premium quality – but unmistakably, the proximity of Denver International Airport proves this wrong! There are many types of sushi. There are large rolls called Makisushi (think California rolls). These types of rolls are a great place to start if you are trying sushi for the first time. One of my favorite simpler rolls is the Yellowtail Jalepeno roll from Sushi Hana. There are also more complicated rolls, such as the hilariously named “Orgasm”... Read More

The Point Cafe’s Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Are Amazing

May 2nd, 2016

The Point Cafe, located on the corner of 13th and College, is more than just your average coffee shop. They have undeniably the best grilled cheese sandwiches on The University Hill you could find. But, to be perfectly honest, I’m not even sure where else you can find such a perfect grilled cheese. Their menu offers a selection of other delectable eats. You can choose from a ham and pesto, avocado and bacon, or plain original grilled cheese sandwich. Any of their options are good. I stop here in the mornings and grab a nice iced cold vanilla latte (I would even say their lattes are better... Read More

April 25th, 2016

As you probably already know, I am a huge fan of burgers (who isn’t?). For any fellow burger snob, this caprese burger from Boco Café is exactly what you are looking for. Yes, that’s right – a caprese burger. If you don’t know what caprese is, it is typically a type of salad or appetizer at an Italian restaurant consisting of basil or basil pesto, tomato and mozzarella. It is utterly simple and totally delicious. But who would have thought it would taste good on a burger? Well, Boco Café certainly did. And just in case you were wondering, “Boco” stands for... Read More

April 4th, 2016

All of the juices at Boulder’s local and organic pressed juice bar, Wonderpress, are absolutely amazing. The list isn’t long enough, but I’ve done my best to narrow it down to the 6 juices and nut milks at Wonderpress that you can never go wrong with. If you are new to pressed juice and other drinks, you may not know what to order or where to even start.
