Cheerful & Beer-Full at the Bohemian Biergarten

September 1st, 2017

Sunday’s can sometimes be a bit of a drag – a day to sleep in, run errands, and dread work the next morning. Therefore, when it comes to finding something fun on a Sunday night, the struggle is real. On Sunday nights the majority of Boulder is a quiet community nestled in the foot of the Flatirons. Little do we know, the Bohemian Biergarten is booming every Sunday night with their gut-busting Comedy Show. That’s right, the Bohemian Biergarten is turning those lazy days into Sunday Funday. The laughs come at a $5 entrance fee, and begin Sunday at 7pm, and continue for a 2nd show at 9:15pm.... Read More

24 Years of Avery!

August 4th, 2017

Looking for something local to do this Saturday? Celebrate the Avery Brewing Company’s 24th anniversary with some good tunes and plenty of beers. Avery Brewing has been around since it was established in 1993 by Adam Avery and his father, Larry. Their beers have pleased the mouths of locals for years, but now they have spread beyond Boulder. Just when I was living in Boston, I was introduced to what is now my go-to beer, Avery’s White Rascal. They’ve even crossed U.S. borders, selling their Boulder brews in Sweden and Japan! Clearly, there’s a lot to celebrate, so why not... Read More

Portrait of Matt

Matt is an instructor in the Technology, Arts and Media (TAM) Program at CU Boulder. His latest pursuit challenges the idea of a controller in the world of video games.

A Celebration of Love: Boulder Prideweek

September 13th, 2016

This week, we celebrated love. The Boulder Pridefest, held last weekend, wrapped up a week of much needed love and support.  After such a trying year for the LGBTQ community, the city came together to celebrate the freedom to love one another. For Victoria Brozek, a festival goer and self-proclaimed “hella gay participant,” Pridefest is, “inspiring in the way that the community comes together to celebrate different gender identities, relationships, and ways of life.” She adds that, “having [that] support is so important, especially when it may not be coming from other places.” Many... Read More

Why the End of Summer Isn’t a Bummer

August 17th, 2016

For anyone who has recently braved the terror that is Target during back to school, congratulations. You survived. Let’s be honest about back to school season. Once the novelty of your new backpack/agenda/room décor wears off, we are left with the reality that summer has ended. The nights that don’t require a down jacket are limited, and the first snowfall is a very close reality. If you’re anything like me, you will experience a vague feeling of loss and emptiness as you realize your first midterms are a mere month away. I know. I’m sorry to so rudely awaken you. Let me make it up to... Read More

Surviving the Summer Slump

July 5th, 2016

The fireworks have been lit and the watermelon consumed. While the weather is still sizzling and the iced drinks are still in season, the Forth of July reminds us all that summer is fast on its way by. I’ve always found the moment when the last sparkler goes out to be a profoundly bittersweet moment. In my quest for an endless summer, I’ve sought out as many seasonal celebrations as possible. Here are a few of the sunniest. Tube to Work Day Was June’s bike to work day too mundane for you? Do you relish the idea of commute by water? Don your worst suit, grab your tube, and join the... Read More

Tailgating 101

September 11th, 2015

Tailgate like a Buff! – or like a buff should, that is. I’ve always wished that CU had more of a tailgating culture, but as time goes on, I’ve realized that tailgating is what we make it. CU alumni seem to be the tailgating pros, other than the fact that they usually don’t get as rowdy as I would like to see CU students get. Tailgating means school pride, and although our football team isn’t #1, whatever. Football is a great excuse to wear black&gold, listen to good music, drink Bloody Mary’s and play beer pong in the parking lot. Necessities: Games –... Read More

Beer, tea, and coffee lovers will all be able to enjoy a slew of events and resources, including brewing lessons, discounts at local bars and cafés, and informative lectures/discussions about some of your favorite drinks.

OMG, OMG, OMG! Puppies! Kittens! Doggie Dash 2015 is Coming Up Fast! — Boulder Gives

August 20th, 2015

Puppies! Kittens! Cute old man and lady dogs! Jumping, playing, eating treats, peeing on fire-hydrants, scratching yarn covered posts and licking all the faces. The Boulder Humane Society is a place for joy to take hold and a place where love first starts. To quote the famous poet Bob Merrill, “How much is that doggie in the window? The one with the waggly tail. How much is that doggie in the window? I do hope that doggie’s for sale.” Yet, for all the ease of going to the Boulder Humane Society to adopt a new love muffin, there is equal parts maintenance to ensure these... Read More

How I had Fun at a Horror Film Festival

May 6th, 2015

I don’t totally dislike the horror film genre. I just prefer not to be incredibly disturbed and grossed out while watching a movie because, honestly, I’m good at traumatizing myself in real life. Although I’m not afraid of the dark and I prefer to live alone, I’m also kind of a jumpy and paranoid person. I get startled when my light-footed boyfriend comes up behind me just to ask a question and if a friend who drives home late at night forgets to text me upon her safe arrival then I’ll assume the worst—that she died in a car crash. Since I’m slightly morbid, I do like some genres... Read More
