Looking Back – World-Record Slide on Boulder Hill!

January 21st, 2024

Have you ever looked at the Hill and thought “I would totally ride a giant slip and slide down that.” Well you are’t the only one. Is 1000 feet going to be long enough for you? That’s 3 football fields. July 18, 2015, a Guinness World-Record holding waterslide comes to Boulder, and will carry thousands of sliders down the landmark Hill. The slide will be placed on 13th street and will open at 9am. Sliders are organized into waves due to the sheer number of them—23,000 people are “Going,” according to Facebook. Unfortunately for those just hearing about it, the event is sold out, but... Read More

Faces of Boulder – Pic of the Day!

November 30th, 2023

“I left my purse at the Biergarten last night, so I should probably go pick it up later today. My brother found me looking for it in front of the Municipal Building … haha. He is my little angel. At least this breakfast burrito is pretty good. There could be worse mornings, you know?” – Erin  Read More

An Island on the Hill – Boulders Tulagi Bar

May 11th, 2023

Through a combination of nostalgia and legend, some pieces of Boulder never fully disappear. Maybe the best example was an ordinary building in the middle of the Hill known as Tulagi. On walking inside, you were hit with the smell of decades of beer being poured, consumed, and spilled. Past the Tiki-ish foyer, you were deposited into the venue, with an open dance floor as simple as the stage at its head. On either side were raised sitting areas with built-in benches and stacked-stone walls, under-lit to give the feel of a cavern-come-club. Surrounding was a mural with various scenes—all sun-drenched... Read More

“I’m passionate about people. Like, being around people and making others excited and happy. That’s the best, you know? If I’m by myself, it’s awesome, but I think being around people elevates my energy and transforms me.” – Miles  Read More

Take a Trip to Gurkhas On the Hill

March 3rd, 2022

Despite the fact that I have been a student at CU Boulder for a couple of years now, I have always had an aversion to the Hill. My dislike for the Hill is due to a number of reasons, and I feel that those reasons are somewhat reasonable. I have had a few bad experiences while in that area, and those experiences have absolutely turned me off of being around the Hill. However, I am beginning to understand that many of my unfortunate incidences are perhaps more isolated than I had previously believed. Despite this, I would also caution everyone against going to the Hill after dark and would tell them... Read More

The Top 3 Pitchers at Half Fast

December 29th, 2021

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. Strong Island Ice Tea – Just like a long island iced tea, but stronger and even BETTER. Some people refer to this one as a “strongo”... Read More

3 Places to Visit on “The Hill”

September 23rd, 2020

Almost every student at CU Boulder has an opinion about “The Hill,” a very popular section of Boulder with shops and restaurant within walking distance from the university. Many students, including myself, will head over to “The Hill” between classes for a quick bite to eat or to grab a cup of coffee. However, “The Hill” is also infamous for having a wild party scene and being possibly dangerous after dark. Because of this, I cannot responsibly recommend going to ‘The Hill’ at night, especially if you are alone. However, I have been to ‘The Hill’ a number of... 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

You Need to Try This Caprese Burger from Boco Café

April 25th, 2016

As you probably already know, I am a huge fan of burgers (who isn’t?). For any fellow burger snob, this caprese burger from Boco Café is exactly what you are looking for. Yes, that’s right – a caprese burger. If you don’t know what caprese is, it is typically a type of salad or appetizer at an Italian restaurant consisting of basil or basil pesto, tomato and mozzarella. It is utterly simple and totally delicious. But who would have thought it would taste good on a burger? Well, Boco Café certainly did. And just in case you were wondering, “Boco” stands for... Read More
