Get Healthy for Hemp History Week

June 9th, 2018
Hemp History Week

This weekend, the cannabis community is wrapping up Hemp History Week. What started as a movement to raise awareness and support for industrial hemp has quickly turned into the largest national grassroots effort to restore strong support for industrial hemp farming in the United States. Running June 4-10, this is the 9th annual campaign which brings together “grassroots organizers, leading hemp product manufactures, farmers, and advocates from all walks of life who are working to change federal policy on industrial hemp in the US.” Hemp has so many uses that it’s not only healthy for you,... Read More

Enjoy Smoked Pork and Brews at Boulder Beer for Father’s Day!

June 16th, 2017

Don’t forget, Father’s Day is this weekend! There might still be enough time to get that card in the mail if you’re like me and procrastinated, right? Maybe. But, if you’re lucky enough to have your dad in Boulder with you this Father’s Day, there’s definitely still time to make some fun plans. My recommendation? Boulder Beer’s Father’s Day Pig Roast! You read that right, starting at 1 PM this Sunday, Boulder Beer is going to be smoking pork and feeding families BBQ style. It sounds like it’ll be best to come hungry too because one $14 plate comes with smoked pork, BBQ black beans,... Read More

May 16th, 2017

There is a great respect and appreciation for the public land here in Colorado, and the majority of Colorado voters in 2016 “opposed efforts to turn national public lands over to the state.” (Conservation Colorado 2016). With this sentiment in mind, Colorado made itself the first state to create a holiday focused on appreciating the benefits received from public land. Be one of the first to celebrate this holiday on this coming Saturday, the 20th of May, as it will be the one of the first celebrations ever of Colorado’s New Public Lands Day! Colorado’s public land holds great value and... Read More

When Boulder Gets Spooky

October 22nd, 2015

It’s difficult to pinpoint what makes Boulder the best city to celebrate Halloween. I think this is because of Boulder’s unique mix of people and places within such a small proximity. What else makes Boulder a hub for Halloween celebrations? 1. Costumes – CU student always dress up 2. Halloween isn’t just one day – Students always take the weekend, and sometimes the whole week leading up to October 31st, to celebrate Halloween 3. Pumpkins – It seems that everyone at CU has hopped on the Jack-O-Lantern wagon. Boulder is full of pumpkin patches and students,... Read More

Colorado Football and the Spirit of CU

September 6th, 2013

With the beginning of a new football season underway, it’s hard not to notice the change in disposition among CU students and the city of Boulder. You can feel it on campus, on the Hill, downtown, and in living rooms across the city; finally, we’ve got a football team worth talking about (instead of sighing about). Students, their families, alumni and Boulderites everywhere are unraveling their dusty CU flags and waving them with pride, adorning themselves with Colorado T-Shirts and other CU paraphernalia before stepping out the door to greet their neighbors with, “How ’bout... Read More
