Boulder Weekend Events
Hopefully this is the last weekend Northern Colorado will be experiencing spurts of cloudiness and rain, but the good news is that is plenty fun to be had indoors.
Saturday May 16
Why avoid the numerous breweries and local beers this weekend? Get to Wonderland Brewery Co.’s One Year Anniversary, where beers will be $1 all day. A different food truck and musical act will be featured Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.
Saturday will feature the food of Infinitus Pie, a yoga class at 3:30 put on by Still Motion Yoga & Massage, and samples from the Cheese Course. Taylor Radio will be the featured musical act on Saturday. The event begins at noon but will undoubtedly keep you entertained for most of the day! Arrive with an empty stomach and your dancing shoes on!
Location: Wonderland Brewing Company, Broomfield.
Take your full stomach and your day buzz and see Henry Rollins at The Boulder Theater. This jack-of-all-trades is an author, comedian, actor, musician, and all-around bada** who has taken his philosophies and opinions of the human experience and put them in his one-man show. To all the writers, thinkers, and people who are not easily offended, I can say personally speak to what an incredibly thought-provoking “show” Rollins puts on. Be ready to be enthralled by his enthusiasm, his manner of speaking, and his “devil may care” attitude. Henry Rollins does not disappoint.
Cost: $26 General Admission, $30 Reserved

Continue to free your mind with Shamatha Meditation at Nalandabodhi Boulder. Shamatha, or “calm-abiding,” is a form of meditation common to many spiritualities, and focuses on clarity and openness of the mind. Practice Instructors will be on hand to assist any newcomers and those with questions, as various techniques of Shamatha are possible and dependent on the individual. Shamatha at Nalandabodhi is free and open to the public every Sunday.
Once you’ve cleansed your mind, nourish your body and senses with a Chardonnay Vertical Tasting at Settembre Cellars. Guests will be tasting the Library Chardonnay, in addition to their first vintage chardonnay, a 2007, as well as their most recent release of a 2010 vintage.
