A Boulder Gay Bar Finally Emerges

March 24th, 2022

DV8 has spent the last 6 years cultivating a scene where the LGBTQ community can find connections, friends, and lovers, without having to travel to Denver. However, DV8 wants to stress that they aren’t exclusively a gay bar. If anything, they say they are technically a queer bar since that’s what the owners identify as. However, DV8 is a safe space for people of any sexuality or gender to feel protected, listened to, and... Read More

Grab a Coffin and a Turkey, Frozen Dead Guy Days is Here: March 18th – 20th

March 18th, 2022

What on earth are we talking about today? Only the coolest festival in Colorado. Every year thousands gather in Nederland to celebrate our state’s most famous frozen grandpa with games, beer, music, and coffin races! Did we mention most events are free?

What to do When Boulder’s Sirens Call

December 26th, 2021

As you may have heard, Boulder County’s most recent emergency warning systems test was Monday evening. Boulder’s flood season stretches from April through August, and that means the emergency warning systems need to be tested regularly. Flash floods are no joke, but neither are the 30+ sirens of Boulder County’s outdoor warning system. Following World War II most cities and towns in the United States incorporated siren alarm systems for civil defense. These were originally intended to warn civilians of impending air raids, hence the colloquial term “air raid sirens”.... Read More
