In The Spirit

During the holiday season, the power of tradition impacts people all over the world with joy and cheer. Some families give to those in need while others express their care and love through thoughtful gifts as they gather with family members. No tradition is too small or insignificant, as each one holds a beloved meaning to those who share what matters to…

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

How has the program evolved over the years? How has There With Care had to adapt to new circumstances/different types of people to serve? 

Learning Curve

Running through January 19th, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Arts (BMoCA), invites the public to two new, stunning exhibits. The first, Texas-based artist, Adriana Corral’s Unearthed / Desenterrado, an exhibition co-produced with Black Cube Nomadic Museum.

Home Is Where The Heart Is

The greenest home is the existing home. While the architects at Fänas Architecture love working with clients on new homes as well, this is a founding precept. It is a quality that Dolf & Sue Kahl, the King Street homeowners, appreciated when hiring Fänas' Elizabeth & Dale Smith to help with their relocating back to Boulder.

Wine and Dine

First as a salesperson and now as a specialist and winemaker, William Snowden has been participating in the Colorado wine industry for over twenty-five years. Snowden has had a hand in crafting the wine lists for some of your favorite Boulder restaurants, including Oak on Fourteenth, Jax, the Med, and Brasserie Ten Ten. 

Once In A Lifetime

For bassist Eric Gould, a touring musician with his band, Particle, performing tribute sets was a bit of a foreign concept. 

Don’t Forget Dessert

This holiday season, satisfy just about any sort of sweet tooth and dietary restriction with the paleo-friendly boulder bakery, Daydream Desserts. 

‘Tis The Season

Last Call for 2019…

As always, December is filled to the brim with time commitments. From start to finish, it’s a half-hazard sprint to the new year.

Making Merry and Bright

When envisioning the perfect holiday gift, what makes it so special? Is it something you need? A luxe indulgence? Perhaps a product from a brand with an inspiring story or one that supports a meaningful cause? An item created by local artisans and makers?

Family Tradition

 Best of the abuelas.  That might be the way to describe what Teocalli Cocina, a new Lafayette Mexican restaurant, is trying to do. Not Tex-Mex, not dishes confined to a specific region, but the greatest hits that grandmothers are cooking up in kitchens all over Mexico.  It’s a great idea, but it’s not the one that owner Grant Hopfenspirger started…

Keeping Food Slow

“Well, why don’t we talk about Florence,” Peggy Markel said slowly and with ease. Her words were not a question, but the subtle upward inflection after every one of her phrases was a curious challenge.

Self-Made

When asked how she has changed since Food Lab Boulder first opened its doors in 2015, Founder and Chef Casey Easton can’t help but laugh.

The Ultimate Retreat

This rustic log cabin, nestled in the woods just outside of Jamestown, looks over the expansive Rocky Mountains with views of Longs Peak and the continental divide. This retreat (and its incredible views) is a mere thirty minutes from Boulder and has quick access to hiking trails including the St. Vrain Trail.

Space for Skating

When you think of Boulder, you think of Chautauqua Park. You think of Saturdays with the Buffaloes and shopping bags filled with treasures from Pearl Street. You should also think of skateboarding.

Best Kept Secret

As Colorado’s population continues to explode, the “hidden gems” of our great state seem to be few and far between. For those who are adventurous enough to look past the now well-developed mountain towns, there is still some magic to be found. One such treasure is the ghost town of Crystal. 

Parting Thoughts

 What's the Hoplark HopTea origin story?   In an attempt to get healthy, after years of failed attempts, Dean Eberhardt gave up alcohol for a month while doing WHOLE30. With five days left on the program, Dean and his best friend Andrew Markley went to a craft brewery where Dean grabbed Andrew’s double IPA, smelled the aroma of the hops, and imagined…

Fitness First

Boulder is no stranger to fitness. With a mountainous backyard, bike lanes on almost every street, and fitness studios popping up around town, it’s no wonder it has frequently been rated as one of the fittest cities in North America.

Food, Family, and Friends

What are some foods that bring you life? I’ll go first: My grandmother’s homemade tortillas and my grandfather’s fried fish.

Parting Thoughts

 How and when did you begin in modeling?   When I was twelve-years-old I was scouted and signed by Donna Baldwin Agency in Denver. I started attending local castings where I was categorized as a “tween”— it was an awkward period, and I was never right for the job. But each casting I went into, I was a little more sure of myself and…

Driver’s Notebook

It is hard to believe that Lamborghini, one of the most notable car manufacturers in the industry, actually started out as a tractor company in 1948. Yet more than half a century later, they are known for producing some of the most elegant and powerful supercars in the world. 

Fashion Forward

“As great as it is terrible, New York is continuously regenerating itself to house and feed some of the world’s most inspirational creators.”   Clothing and art are transferrable between parties.
