5 Amazing Restaurants to Try in Boulder

October 23rd, 2019

I love going to eat in Boulder (I love going out to eat in general—who doesn’t?) I love a restaurant with a great atmosphere (a great vibe in a restaurant is my SCENE) and affordable food and drink that is quality! Winding down the day at a nice place with a few friends and drinks is one of my favorite pastimes. Sometimes picking out a new restaurant can always feel like a gamble; you never really know what you’ll get, especially because there are plenty of options in Boulder. Well, I got you, because these are some restaurants you certainly must try in Boulder; you really can’t go wrong... Read More

Best Cheap Drinks in Boulder

September 10th, 2019

One of the things I love about Boulder is the number of places to get cheap drinks due to the large college population! Truly, this town is the town where you can you get a lot of strong drinks (sometimes served in pitcher form) for a decent price. After living in NYC for a year—and being scared by having to pay $18 for a single red bull vodka at a bar once—I am very here for Boulder’s cheap prices. Look no further for a guide to the best deal drinks in Boulder, and I’ll see you there. 1. Illegal Pete’s Illegal Pete’s is low-key the king of good, cheap drinks in Boulder! They have two... Read More

Top 3 Fun Hangs in Boulder

July 30th, 2019

1. Half Fast Subs  I LOVE Half Fast Subs! It’s got great prices on drinks and subs, and the dive atmosphere is my favorite. Located on Boulder’s ever-changing ‘The Hill’ district, the atmosphere has some old0-school charm. It’s a no-frills, low key establishment that feels very comfortable to hang out at. Kick back on the patio, drink a pitcher of Long Island Iced Tea—dubbed the ‘Strongo’—and laugh with friends. You can’t beat it.  2. The Spot  The Spot is a cool hidden gem that has a fine duality; you can climb and drink a beer. The Spot was the first bouldering gym to... Read More

Why I Love Going to Music Festivals

July 20th, 2019

I recently developed a love for music festivals! I share a deep love for the experience of a music festival, as it’s like nothing else I’ve seen. It feels like an EXPERIENCE over just another concert, hangout, etc. I love them for the way they bond us with others and create a sense of belonging. Here are some of the reasons I love them and why you should try going to one someday! 1.The Good Energy Every time I’ve been to a festival, the energy has been off the wall amazing. I am a big believer in vibes, and I’ve always felt nothing but good vibes radiating from people at the festival.... Read More

5 Tips to Save Money Going to a Music Festival

June 27th, 2019

It’s summer, which means it’s festival season!!! As in, music festivals! I personally love festival season and went to Electric Forest last year and Bonnaroo this year. Festivals can get pricey, but I was amazed by how much I could save with small money-saving hacks. Yes, you can go to a festival too and not be freaking out about money too! (Trust me, I know. Currently on a barista salary…haha) Look no further for tips to make festival season fun and affordable.   Bring Your Own Food.   This seems like a fairly simple and obvious idea, but planning out what food you bring is... Read More

Interconnected

August 13th, 2018

Take a breath. Exhale. Take an even deeper breath. Exhale. You just connected with every living thing past, present, and still yet to come. The very oxygen each one of us is presently breathing has been in the lungs and blood stream of every living thing that’s spent one second of life here. That same oxygen in your lungs has contributed to the life of every flower that’s ever bloomed, every tree that’s ever sprouted, every bird that’s ever flown, every fish that’s ever swam, every animal that’s ever run, and every human that’s ever entered this world. We’re connected to one another... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

March 25th, 2017

Maddie and Emma grew up together in Telluride, Colorado. They both came out to CU in 2014 to start they’re college career. The two of them are both in love with Boulder, but still say that Telluride truly has their hearts. They both love the mountain, the town, and the people. Apparently, Telluride folks are their own types. The girls claim that they can almost tell immediately when someone is from their hometown. The girls make sure to go back home and visit as often as they can. They like to go back home and get in as many days as they can at their home mountain during ski season. They... Read More

Senior Bucket List

February 3rd, 2017

Photo Credit: whyismarko.com I’ve mentioned in my other blogs that I am a senior and that this is my last semester of college. With that being said, my friends and I want to live out our last few months together the best way we can, so we are going to make a bucket list! I’m sure every senior (who isn’t going on to grad school) wants to have the most fun possible as well, so I encourage you all to get together with friends and make a list of some “last-hurrah” opportunities. Here are a couple things on my list: Go to one last Frat party and pretend to be freshmen Do a bar crawl of all... Read More

Maddy

“She’s moving to Indianapolis this weekend so I took her out for margs. I figured it’s the least I could do for her after having a friend that puts up with me. I really don’t know what I’m going to do without her here … maybe I’ll just move into her closet in Indiana.” – Giselle Rudnick (with Maddy Feeney at Taco Junky)  Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

March 26th, 2016

“My personal experience in Boulder has probably gotten better because more of my friends have moved here and I have developed a large network of friends. So I would say that’s my dominant experience of Boulder, is my friendships…I think I will continue to live in Boulder, I’ll probably die here. This is by far the place where I have the closest friends.”- Patrick Lynn (Patrick has lived in Boulder since 1987)  Read More

Friendsgiving Recipes

November 19th, 2015

Students! Many of you won’t be headed home for the holiday and instead will be confined to Boulder and whomever else has also decided to skip the family affair. Thanksgiving is usually a time to gather with siblings, grandparents and cousins. However, for those of us who stay in Boulder, Thanksgiving can take on a new aroma: one scented by friends. This is Friendsgiving! Honestly, you don’t even necessarily need to stay in Boulder for Thanksgiving in order to have Friendsgiving. Many students are simply using the gathering as a way to celebrate friendship with food. Here are some of... Read More

Your Network Is Your Net Worth

October 27th, 2015

“When I was a kid, there was no collaboration; it’s you with a camera bossing your friends around. But as an adult, filmmaking is all about appreciating the talents of the people you surround yourself with and knowing you could never have made any of these films by yourself.” – Steven Spielberg. For this week’s blog, I want to take a step back from the general scope of the Boulder Startup Boom and write about an extremely influential part in becoming a successful entrepreneur – networking. While the quote above pertains to the film industry, we must not look... Read More

Fall Party Inspiration

August 14th, 2015

Party like it’s 1989 – or 2015. The idea is to explore party themes past the typical ugly sweater and commit to throwing an out-of-this-world soirée. My inspiration behind the idea for this blog were two things: One, my roommates and my idea of throwing an all out, combined birthday party for all three of us. This idea quickly escalated into a birthday/sexy santa christmas party – and two, the W Magazine photoshoot that featured a cast of VIP party animals, including Miley Cyrus, Emily Ratajkowski and Stella Maxwell. Being a college student, I’ve dreamed of hosting... Read More

Creating Spring Break – And That’s A Wrap!

March 27th, 2015

Us Buffaloes seem to be creative in establishing a spring break plan; or lack thereof. It seems that many of us have moved away from the pre-determined vacations, and instead, built our own maps. The exciting thing about building a “map”, is that plans can be limitless. You can begin in Boulder and head to Lake Tahoe, California, but on the way, stop in Moab to climb the Arch…and maybe in Vegas on the drive home. Why would we need all-inclusive when we have our own imaginations? These Buffs have ventured outside of the so-called “typical” spring break locations and... Read More
