Boulder Memorial Day Weekend Events

May 21st, 2015

Although both the wind and rain are sticking around a bit longer this month, don’t let that hinder the possibility for shenanigans in Boulder County this Memorial Day weekend! Saturday May 23 Start the afternoon off whimsically celebrating the five-year anniversary of The Carousel of Happiness, a non-profit, donor-funded organization that donates to those with special needs. Celebrate the attraction that has won hearts since being hand-carved and released to the public in 2010. Carousel games will be offered for children, as well as free birthday cake for all to share.

No Name Bar: It’s as Inconspicuous as it Sounds

February 20th, 2015

Tucked away in a small complex on the Hill, sandwiched between Dot’s Diner and Cosmo’s Pizza, lies is a hidden gem. The No Name Bar, connected to Cosmo’s Pizza is a hip, speakeasy-esque bar. Its entrance, a large, elegant wooden door, stands alone in a dark corner beneath a set of outdoor stairs. At first glance, it appears to lead nowhere—it lacks the typical outdoor lighting that announces a restaurant or bar’s presence. And, most peculiarly, it lacks a sign. Their business card matchbooks that line the bar neither have any contact information nor any name, marked with a simple ‘C’... Read More

Straight from the Source: Boulder Breweries

February 13th, 2015

After a long week, sometimes it’s nice to just kick back and relax with a nice pint of beer. Luckily, Boulder has a handful of microbreweries that also offer some pretty stellar happy hours. Twisted Pine Brewing Company is quickly growing to become one of my favorite spots for a cold brew. Located just behind The Spot, it is tucked away from the chaos of downtown Boulder. When you pull into their parking lot, a smell of barley and hops wafts through the air, quickly reassuring you in your decision to come to Twisted Pine. On top of their unique selection of year-round beer, including their famous... Read More

Boulder Happy Hour: A Foodie’s Paradise

February 6th, 2015

Boulder is a quaint city known for its majestic Flatirons, world-class rock climbing, road biking, and foreword thinking, environmentally conscious residents. For someone new to Boulder, or maybe for a long-time resident who prefers the comforts of home, it might not be immediately obvious that Boulder is also home of one of the best happy hour selections in the country. From Mexican-American restaurants to pub-style breweries, Boulder just about has it all. Usually my friends and I can’t seem to settle on just one restaurant for happy hour. Luckily, many of the restaurants that offer... Read More

Gluten-Free and Potions: Shine Restaurant

September 11th, 2014

Boulder is known for many things. One thing is our priority to health and immersing ourselves in the latest health food trends. So it’s not surprise there are a plethora of gluten-free, paleo, or vegan options around Boulder. (Yes, it’s true, Boulder and “gluten-free” seem to go hand in hand… at least from beyond the Boulder County borders). I realize that being gluten-free and being a foodie contradict each other, but I try to live by a 90-10 diet (90% GF, 10% not… although it’s beginning to seem a lot more 80-20.) Which is where my new favorite restaurant... Read More

A Latin Affair: Centro Latin Kitchen And Refreshment Palace.

September 4th, 2014

We all know that Boulder has a little something for everyone, so finding your favorite, go-to restaurant is a breeze! (Unless your me and find it hard to pick favorites…) Despite my difficulties on choosing a single “favorite restaurant”, I have found Centro Latin Kitchen and Refreshment Palace is consistently at the top of my list. The food is always great, the vibe is always fun, their happy hour is killer and if you’re lucky, they might have live music while you’re there! Plus they always give a nod to my favorite South American holidays and traditions. (Their Carnival... Read More
