Your Outdoor Holiday Gift Guide

December 6th, 2018

With the season of giving well upon us and that major holiday only weeks away, I thought it would be a good idea to create an outdoor holiday gift guide for that adventurer on your list. It can be hard to shop for your outdoor inclined someone on your list, especially if you are more the indoor type.  Hopefully, the following guide can help you navigate the process. We will cover everything from small inexpensive stocking stuffers to big-ticket items. GSI Outdoors Soft Sided Wine Carafe – 750ml This thing holds an entire bottle of wine and is practically indestructible.  I have owned one... Read More

The Laughing Goat

May 8th, 2018

The Laughing Goat coffee shop is on 1709 Pearl St. Honestly, the name was all I needed to draw me in. On the wall is a sign that says “Be Nice or Leave.” All of the customers seem to abide by this policy very nicely. Every single person is quiet in the cafe, except the staff, as they are discussing crazy Uber ride stories. I look around to notice there are gold little goats on the glass of the cafe, they look like they are dancing as opposed to laughing, but they still look happy just the same. They certainly add their own unique character. I notice that every single person here is alone; the... Read More

Boulder Happy Hour: A Foodie’s Paradise

February 6th, 2015

Boulder is a quaint city known for its majestic Flatirons, world-class rock climbing, road biking, and foreword thinking, environmentally conscious residents. For someone new to Boulder, or maybe for a long-time resident who prefers the comforts of home, it might not be immediately obvious that Boulder is also home of one of the best happy hour selections in the country. From Mexican-American restaurants to pub-style breweries, Boulder just about has it all. Usually my friends and I can’t seem to settle on just one restaurant for happy hour. Luckily, many of the restaurants that offer... Read More

Mendoza Wine Camp

October 14th, 2014

Mendoza, Argentina is famous for it’s mountain ranges that surround the city, and just the right combination of cool and warm temperatures and soil that make the perfect recipe for growing succulent grapes, and in turn, producing delicious wine.  Mendoza being the highest wine producing region in Argentina.  When we arrived in Mendoza we knew we’d be in for drinking tasty local wine and enjoying the beautiful mountains, laying just east of the Andes, but what we didn’t know was just how luxurious and lavish the experience was going to turn out to be. From traveling around South America... Read More

Fall Weather Home Cookin.

October 2nd, 2014

October is definitely my favorite month. It’s not my birthday month, nor has any noteworthy life event happened to me during the pre-Halloween season, but I just love it! I love how it makes me feel. Everything is cozier, sweeter and comforting. As the days get cooler and nights grow longer, I wave goodbye to roof top drinks and backyard grilling. I turn to one of my favorite cooking methods: the crockpot. I all but forget I own multiple slow cookers/crock pots between April-August but once September hits, I use any excuse to use it? Oh, it drizzled this morning? Crock pot. Oh, you feel... Read More

Valentine’s Day in Boulder

February 12th, 2014

              Love is in the air here in Boulder, as Valentine’s Day swiftly approaches. Now is the time when Boulderites quit burning their incense, and start lighting their scented candles.  Flowers, wine, chocolates, and (hopefully) condoms are flying off the shelves as the whole city begins to celebrate the international day of love. Some will be doting on their significant others with lavish gifts and romantic gestures, while others will be in a mad dash to rustle up a new significant other before the buzzer. (Really, how significant do they have to be?... Read More
