Surviving the Bolder Boulder

May 23rd, 2017

On Memorial Day last year, over 50,000 runners blanketed the city of Boulder as they competed in the Bolder Boulder 10K. Elite runners from across the globe, top wheelchair competitors, and thousands of everyday citizens sweated through 6.2 miles as they attended one of the largest and most popular races in the country. While the race usually comes down to a sprint at the final stretch of Folsom Field, and hundreds struggle from the heat, cramping, injury, and altitude, most finish with a smile. The stories are usually written about Olympian athletes and their ability to overcome obstacles.... Read More

Environmental Events

April 16th, 2017

I don’t know about anyone else, but the middle of April always feels kind of bland.  Nothing really special seems to be going on, and we’re in that almost but not quite spring part of the year, so I thought I’d change things up again for this week and have a theme.  This week, we’re looking at events that have to do with sustainability and protecting the environment.  That may sound boring, but I think you’ll find at least one of these events interesting. Starting with Tuesday the 18th, the Boulder Theater is presenting the Recycled Runway for the 8th year in a row.  Hosted by The... Read More

April 9th, 2017

Well, it’s time to get back to the usual format.  I’ve dug through my sources to find some great new events for you all this week, but before I get to those I have to take this one last chance to reiterate what I recommended last week.  Since then I’ve seen the film myself and am close to considering it my favorite movie of all time.  Alright, I’ve pushed that movie hard enough, let’s get to the new events shall we? On Tuesday April 11th, and every Tuesday for that matter, Upslope brewing company is hosting their Tuesday Tapping.  Every week their brewers create new and unique beers... Read More

The ONE Event You Need Know About

April 2nd, 2017

To start off April, I’m going to be doing something a little different than usual.  Instead of highlighting three events for this week, I’m going to be focusing on just one.  I decided to do this not just because it would allow me to get a little more in depth about this one event, but also because it’s something I’ve been waiting over a year for and can’t really contain my own excitement.  So, what is it that is so exciting I’m dedicating this entire week to? Kimi No Na Wa, or Your Name as it is known in English, is the latest film from my personal favorite director Makoto Shinkai.... Read More

Events to treat all senses

March 5th, 2017

Here I am again with so much to say about these under advertised events that I just want to get straight into them.  I will say this, though: This month’s events are a treat for all senses.  Come see what I mean.   Throughout the entire month of March the Boulder Dinner Theater is putting on their performance of Disenchanted.  This comedic parody of classic fairytales turns all the classic tropes about princess we know on their heads.  This musical features all the Disney princesses becoming fed up with how they’re being presented in today’s media and join together to reclaim their... Read More

5 Things We DID Win This Election Season

November 13th, 2016

People, this has been a rough couple of months. It was bitter, it was convoluted, it was stressful, and it certainly did not end on a great note. In light of that, let’s take a moment to look at some things that actually DID go well last Tuesday: You can smoke weed in a lot more states now. Recreational marijuana is now legal in California, Nevada, and Massachusetts. Medical marijuana is also now legal in Florida, Arkansas, and North Dakota. The passage of these ballot measures means it’s legal to purchase, possess, and consume that Mary Jane, but this privilege is accompanied by establishing... Read More

6 Things You Realize As Soon As You Leave Boulder

September 29th, 2016

It’s a fantastic city, Boulder, but the longer you live here, the more accustomed you’ll become to mountains, sunshine, craft beer, and socially liberal ideas. You run the risk of forgetting that not every city is environmentally conscious and dog-friendly all the time. Here are some things to keep in mind if you leave town: Not everyone is ultra-fit. Boulder has consistently been ranked as one of the fittest cities in the country. It is a hotbed of marathoners, bikers, runners, hikers, skiers, snowboarders, unicyclers, hoola-hoopers, etc. As soon as you get out of town though, you’ll realize... Read More

Young Boulderites, Go Vote!

September 12th, 2016

We’re millennials. We haven’t lived through a war fought on our turf. We haven’t rebelled to join a revolution of new-age rock and roll. We haven’t joined an anti-war movement or burned our draft cards. We haven’t picketed for the right to vote and burned our bras. We haven’t experienced segregation first hand. We grew up knowing that we could drive, buy expensive things, go to whatever school we wanted, worship however we wanted, and date whoever we wanted to date. But these are privileges of the most sacred kind. Generations of people that came before us fought... Read More
