“Eat Drink Boulder”

Oil to Love For

“When you open the bottle, close your eyes, and then smell the oil.” These were my instructions from Oscar Sanchez, when we met. “You will smell more than oil. You will smell life . . . happiness . . . love.” I did what Oscar asked. I was preparing a Valentine’s Day dinner for my […]

When in Niwot, Why Not Try Bootstrap Brewery

The first time I visited the Bootstrap Brewery in Niwot, I was on my bicycle, riding into town from Broomfield to attend a Rock & Rails concert. Somehow, I took a few wrong turns, ran into a couple of dead-end roads, and found myself somewhat lost. Forty miles later, I located the brewery where I […]

Ella Recaptures Her Audience

  There is a rebirth happening in (almost) North Boulder.  Modest; yet noteworthy.  If you live or work or spend an extended amount of time in downtown Boulder (let’s say the 4 square miles surrounding the pedestrian mall) the pace of interaction in North Boulder may feel foreign.  To my taste it’s a bit calmer, […]

A Parliament of Good People

Lets do it.  Lets try to put our finger on the je ne sais quoi, try to define the intangible.  Wait, reverse that.  Since my first intimate encounter with Sanitas Brewing back in December of 2013, this brewery has worked its talons into my life and many of my close relationships.  A former employer and […]

Staying Happy, Healthy, and Socially Connected; How to Evade the Winter Blues

Fortunately, in Boulder, gorgeous blue skies often accompany our snowy winter days. However, the initial fervent excitement that ski season brings tends to wear its welcome come mid-March, when we yearn for consistently warm days. Memories of the sun’s heat and that telltale scent of the trees that wafts over the Front Range once the […]

Pairings from a Pro

Valentine’s Day, Boulder-Style

Valentine’s Day. A day filled to the brim with heart shaped boxes of chocolate (or maybe in Boulder’s case, heart shaped boxes of kale chips), dozens upon dozens of red roses, and bags of tasteless conversation hearts. For those looking to do something special on this day of love, we have put together a list of places with Valentine’s Day […]

Comida: Street-Style Food found in Longmont’s Upscale Cantina

My recent move to Boulder from Austin, Texas left me with a serious withdrawal from Mexican food, and of course, margaritas. Research and word of mouth led me directly to the front door of Comida, a Mexican food restaurant in Longmont, only a hop and a skip away from Boulder. If you’ve seen a brightly […]

Le Tour des Patisseries

A few years ago, I took a trip around Europe visiting friends, finding myself, the basic Euro-trip. Thanks to a friend of a friend gladly taking me in, I was able to stay in Paris for two weeks.

North Boulder Amante: Everyone’s Favorite Pre-Ride Watering Hole

Cafes in Boulder, unlike almost any other city in the US, enjoy the added niche market of the avid espresso-seeking sport enthusiast. While Boulder restaurants are able to cater to the post-14er wind-burnt and ravishingly hungry crowd with lots of stories to recount, only cafes are able to offer the ease of commitment-free stops either […]

Nourish Yourself!

Two of Boulder’s defining qualities as a town are its innovative, self-starter spirit and an avid, borderline obsessive, passion for health food. This passion combined with the sport-induced metabolism capable of taking down huge quantities of food, means that there is always a market in Boulder’s food industry for locally made, healthy, small-scale food products.
