End Your Night with a Coffee-Infused Sweet Treat

August 14th, 2020

There’s nothing better than a solid cup of coffee or a perfectly frothed cappuccino. If you have a hankering for a cup of joe, Boulder has fantastic coffee shops (Ozo, Laughing Goat, Amante, Todd’s). But if you’re a true coffee lover (or a caffeine addict), coffee cravings can pop up long after breakfast. So here are a few coffee-centric desserts to end your date night on a high note—or at least a caffeine high. Build-Your-Own Affogato: Heifer and the Hen (5290 Arapahoe) There’s a newly opened ice cream shop in Boulder, located next door to its sister company, BRU. They offer the option... Read More

If you are the type of person who likes puzzles and challenges, or you’re looking for a date night that requires active participation, here are two Boulder activities that won’t disappoint. These are great for larger groups (and couples, too). Boulder Enigma Escape Rooms (1426 Pearl St. #020) This is the ultimate Boulder experience for problem-solvers. I recommend going as a group—the more brains the better. You and your friends (up to eight people) are literally locked inside a room for 60 minutes and must follow clues and solve puzzles to get out. (Don’t worry, there’s always... Read More

Date Nights and Day Trips: Beer for Every Meal

May 13th, 2016

Boulder’s beer scene makes it possible to enjoy a unique craft brewing experience for any meal (or every meal if you’re up for the challenge). There are a dizzying number of breweries to choose from in town, so here are my picks for the best places to try for each meal: Beer for Brunch: FATE Brewing Company If you don’t know about weekend brunch at FATE Brewing (1600 38th St.), you’re missing out. Nothing is better than starting the morning with a Coffee IPA, Coffee Kolsch, or a Beermosa. But the brunch food is the real treat. If you’re ready to indulge, go for one of these: the... Read More

Date Nights and Day Trips: Your Planning Just Got Easier

May 5th, 2016

Planning a date night or an outing can be a pain, especially if you want to break out of your routine and try something new. It’s even harder if you’re new to the area or just visiting. Most of us have probably lost a good chunk of our lives asking Google what to do with our Friday night.

Finding something to do can be surprisingly hard if you aren’t sure where to start. Now you can start here: Boulder Date Nights and Day Trips. Each week, our blog series... Read More
