Pearl Street’s Quick ‘N Dirty Backstory

May 18th, 2023

A Boulder resident in the 1940s remarked that Pearl street is “a good place to buy a pair of socks.” I think this adage holds true today, and that Pearl offers Boulder exponentially more to go along with those socks. Pearl Street is supposedly named for one of the wives of the original 54 founders of Boulder. However, I have also heard whispers that “Pearl” was a madam of a brothel once located near what is now Pearl Street. The first explanation is more likely, though I find the second more provocative and appealing. If I had to describe Pearl Street, I would say it’s an intermingling... Read More

The Philly cheesesteak sandwich is a beloved American classic, and its history can be traced back to the city of Philadelphia in the 1930s. It was created by Pat and Harry Olivieri, brothers who ran a hot dog stand in South Philly.

Why is CU’s Dining Hall Named After a Cannibal?

May 13th, 2023

Students were asked to name the dining hall when it was being built, and the name that won in a landslide from morbid college humor was Alferd Packer. Packer was searching for gold in Breckenridge like many others in the 1800s, and banded himself with a small group of men that he didn’t know by lying and saying that he knew the area well (he did not). It was written that Packer was a horrible traveling companion... Read More

When it’s all over, here are the things that alumni miss the most: Tailgating. Among the things that CU is good at, winning football games isn’t necessarily up there, but tailgating certainly is.
