Good Health off the Rack…The Spice Rack

February 21st, 2024

Eighty percent of all people use plants as medicine to treat everything from digestive distress and fever to muscle pain and asthma, according to the World Health Organization. Did you know that eating spices like garlic, ginger or paprika can reduce the number of free radicals in your body?

Put the two together and see what curious results give light. So, let’s play a little trivia. What do Boulder High School and beer brewing have in common?

Coffee Matters: Agriculture of the Bean

June 3rd, 2023

As I’ve previously mentioned, coffee “beans” (seeds or pits) grow in moderate climates across the world on what’s referred to as the coffee belt. Coffee trees, which are actually more like tall bushes, are pruned short though they can grow to be over 25 feet tall. They are covered with waxy dark green leaves and blossoming fruit—of green, red, and yellow color—known as cherries, which grow along its branches. The beans or seeds are picked from inside the fruit once it’s ripened. While there are many different species of coffee plants, the two species that are commercially cultivated... Read More

Everyone loves Half Fast subs as a sandwich shop – but every college student knows what it means when someone asks you “Wanna grab a pitcher?” Half Fast knows what’s up when it comes to serving up the strongest alcoholic drinks you could possibly find on the University Hill. With each pitcher limited to 1 per person, here’s my top 3 choices for what to order when you feel like getting sloshed off of a 32 oz. pitcher of happiness.

We all know the classic casseroles, stuffings, and desserts, but have you considered adding hemp foods to your menu? For some, hemp foods can be new to cook with, and there isn’t a lot of direction for how to add hemp to your Thanksgiving, until now! Hemp foods are gaining popularity, and becoming much easier to find in stores. Hempsgiving was recently held in Denver, where every item on the menu featured some sort of hemp.

Five Points: Where Food Culture & Gentrification Intersect

September 8th, 2020

With the recent opening of Ink! Coffee on Larimer and 28th, Denver’s River North Art District (RiNo) continues its food and coffee supremacy. RiNo, which is technically a part of the Five Points neighborhood, is already a nationally recognized food hub. The new location from the Aspen-based Ink!—one of Colorado’s biggest coffee chains—will most likely only fuel RiNo’s status as a popular culinary center. Ink! will be competing with two other coffee shops on Larimer Street—Huckleberry and Crema. On nearby Brighton Boulevard, coffee lovers will find two other options: Wystone’s at Industry... Read More

FLASHBACK: A Side of History With Your Sink Burger

August 28th, 2020

If there is one restaurant that should be written about in AboutBoulder.com, it should be The Sink, and mainly because of its sheer celebrity in the Boulder community. Located on The Hill, it’s been a Boulder staple for over 90 years. It’s changed names a and owners a handful of times but in 1989 returned (permanently) to it’s roots. Known for its beatnik murals and colorful decor, The Sink was home to Buffs like Robert Redford (legend has it he slept in one of the booths after working his janitor shifts), and being the hub for the hippie culture in the 70s.  You probably already know that... Read More

I’ve always loved avocados. They are healthy, high in fiber and help to lower cholesterol. Avocado is packed with over 20 vitamins and minerals and practically anyone can eat them – as they are gluten free, dairy free, vegan and vegetarian. Many of those who live in Boulder eat alternative diets, and it’s no surprise we’ve been ranked one of the healthiest and happiest cities in the U.S. Maybe avocados have something to do with that. Alpine Modern Café is a peculiar local gem, located at the corner of 9th Street and College Avenue that is turning this amazing food into a delicious breakfast.... Read More
