You Can Help Save the Environment by Drinking Beer

April 28th, 2017

Do you like beer? Do you care about the environment? You’re here, reading this blog, so I can only assume the answer to the first question is yes. Also, since you’re looking for things about Boulder and our wonderful city is nestled at the foot of the Rockies, it’s probably safe to assume you’d like to see those mountains stay beautiful too. Tonight, Friday April 28th, the Boulder Theater is giving us the chance to use our love of beer to do more good in our community and is hosting Microbreweries for the Environment! Breweries from all over the area will be coming together to raise funds... Read More

St. Paddy’s Day is for Beer Drinking

March 17th, 2017

The day has finally arrived! The day that we beer drinkers look forward to all year long. The day that everyone can come together in a sea of green and sing odes to the old country (even if they have only seen pictures of the Cliffs of Moher). This St. Patrick’s Day, don your most festive Irish green getup and, after finishing your annual green Coors Light, check out one of the many events happening today featuring beers from local breweries all over Boulder. To give us an idea of where to start, I looked in a few of them. To start the evening off, head over the Avery Brewing for their St. Paddy’s... Read More

Edible Indulgence and the NFL

January 30th, 2017

Photo Credit: pixaby.com Why does the National Football League (NFL) deny their players the right to use marijuana instead of habit-forming opioids?  That is the billion dollar question!  While NFL players continue to be suspended for cannabis use with just 35 nanogram of THC per milliliter, consider the fact, the Olympics allow four-times that amount for athletes around the world in the biggest competition on the planet. Crazy, right? So, what’s a football fan to do…watch the game high, of course! Edibles are a best bet for an evening of high-stakes football.  Here’s what to expect in... Read More

August in Boulder

August 12th, 2016

August in Boulder means hot summer temperatures, students coming back to school, and summer events beginning to wind down. In order to make the most of these last few weeks of August, here are a couple things to keep in mind: School is starting up again. All month, the Hill has been a hotbed of college students moving out of their old places and into their new ones. Mattresses and couches and toaster ovens are left on the side of the roads like some kind of post-apocalyptic disaster has struck. Classes start up again at CU Boulder on Monday, August 22nd, so be warned. The week of August 22nd will... Read More

The Bubble and Beyond

May 27th, 2015

Boulder is a city and county of many parts. Anyone who lives or visits here can’t help noticing. Within an hour’s drive of downtown you can find everything from hamlets nestled into pine-covered foothills to municipalities threading cottonwood traces, from the pristine vistas of Rocky Mountain National Park to the anchor of the Great Plains spreading eastward. Given that variation, it’s no surprise a host of interests come into play. Businesses—from national corporations to one-off boutiques—have made their home in the region. Industries as diverse as aerospace and recreation find a... Read More

Halloween Concerts!

October 24th, 2014

Halloween is always a fun time to dress up, pull pranks on one another, and eat more candy than you most likely would any other time of the year (well, maybe Christmas is in the running, too). While that is all fun and good for most people, some of us (like myself) are often in search of shows to go to on this most Hallowed Eve, which luckily for most people falls a week from tonight. There are a number of Halloween-themed concerts out there, and then some that appear to just be coincidence that they take place next Friday. Here is a short preview of the shows that may be your best bet for dressing... Read More

Ten Reasons Why Boulder Rocks

March 12th, 2014

Happy cows may come from California, but happy people come from Boulder. And for good reason! Boulder has so much to offer, it’s no wonder that people here are considered to be among the happiest in the country. Narrowing this list down was the real challenge, but here are ten reasons why Boulder rocks: 1. Hiking, Biking, and Climbing Okay, maybe that’s three reasons, but the main theme here is mountains. Nestled right at the base of the Rockies, Boulder has over 300 miles of hiking and biking trails, and countless opportunities for climbing and bouldering (imagine that). Even if you don’t... Read More
