Cheerful & Beer-Full at the Bohemian Biergarten

September 1st, 2017

Sunday’s can sometimes be a bit of a drag – a day to sleep in, run errands, and dread work the next morning. Therefore, when it comes to finding something fun on a Sunday night, the struggle is real. On Sunday nights the majority of Boulder is a quiet community nestled in the foot of the Flatirons. Little do we know, the Bohemian Biergarten is booming every Sunday night with their gut-busting Comedy Show. That’s right, the Bohemian Biergarten is turning those lazy days into Sunday Funday. The laughs come at a $5 entrance fee, and begin Sunday at 7pm, and continue for a 2nd show at 9:15pm.... Read More

24 Years of Avery!

August 4th, 2017

Looking for something local to do this Saturday? Celebrate the Avery Brewing Company’s 24th anniversary with some good tunes and plenty of beers. Avery Brewing has been around since it was established in 1993 by Adam Avery and his father, Larry. Their beers have pleased the mouths of locals for years, but now they have spread beyond Boulder. Just when I was living in Boston, I was introduced to what is now my go-to beer, Avery’s White Rascal. They’ve even crossed U.S. borders, selling their Boulder brews in Sweden and Japan! Clearly, there’s a lot to celebrate, so why not... Read More

Calling all bookworms, book hoarders, and bibliophiles!

June 15th, 2017

I admit: I am an avid bookworm, book hoarder, and bibliophile. I never go anywhere without a book and I must read at least an hour each day to feel slightly normal. I frequently visit Trident Booksellers, a three-story bookstore located in the heart of Pearl Street, and romp through their aisles, enjoying being around people who (hopefully) share my mindset, my heart warm and fuzzy being surrounded by thousands of books just waiting to be read. Trident Booksellers was established in 1979, a place for friends and students to gather together to talk, study, read, and imbibe the myriad of classical... Read More

It’s the third largest road race in the United States and was recently named the best 10K by Runner’s World. There’s usually thousands of spectators, thousands of runners, random entertainment like slip n’ slides and music, outrageous running costumes, and it all starts this Monday on May 29th.

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

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

February 26th, 2017

As we jump from the end of February into the beginning of March, a fresh batch of events are waiting to ease the sometimes turbulent transition of the months.  While some of these events may be bigger, sometimes a little reminder is helpful when the end of the month sneaks up on you.  So, let’s get down to business with 3 events to kick off March.   Running from March 2nd through the 5th is the Boulder International Film Festival, or BIFF for short.  This weekend of films from around the world are always unique, inspiring, thought provoking, and so much more.  It is an event that draws... Read More
