Locally owned curated boutique, HAVEN, is expanding and moving to Pearl Street

Haven, a locally owned, curated lifestyle boutique is expanding and moving to 1640 Pearl Street mid-November.  Just in time for holiday shopping, Haven will open its doors with a freshly curated selection of vintage, home goods, clothing, and unique gift items.

“We are thrilled to join the incredible community of independent shops and eateries/Boulder institutions like Chelsea, Cured, BoxCar, Two Sole Sisters as well as the new kids on the block, Truman Barbers and The Food Lab! It’s such a creative and vibrant area of downtown and we truly can’t wait to be a part of it.”

Haven opened in September of 2016 on Folsom Street, between two other Boulder institutions, The Village Coffee Shop and Bart’s Records. The original shop will officially close on December 31st.

The full-fledged brewery is run by lead brewer Nick Tedeschi, who worked side-by-side with founding brewmaster Bryan Selders from day 1. The rotating tap line-up will include Post classics and seasonal favorites such Howdy Beer, Townie Ale, Ol’ Zippy Premium American Ale, Rooster Cruiser IIPA, 1771 IPA, Dry Stout, Elkhorn Lager, and Ski Tan Red Lager

The kitchen, led by Chef/Partner Brett “Smitty” Smith, will serve The Post’s award-winning, gluten-free fried chicken and roasted bird, huge from-the-farm salads and veggie sides, lodge favorites like 
pot roast and chicken pot pie, and homemade desserts. Rotating Blue Plate specials will offer diners a taste of regional American classics, and a bar menu featuring beer, wine, and straightforward hand-shaken cocktails will be also available to lovers of the bird.

Beaver Creek to 
Debut Red Buffalo Park during 2017-2018 Season

To improve the experience for beginner and intermediate skiers and further establish Beaver Creek as the world’s best luxury family resort, Beaver Creek Resort is dedicating more than 200 acres of terrain as a family and adventure learning area. Red Buffalo Park, located at the mountain’s highest elevation, 11,440 feet, provides 13 trails designated as a family learning area. At the heart of Red Buffalo Park, the new Red Buffalo Express Lift (#5), a high-speed quad, will improve the beginner experience by decreasing lift lines and providing a shorter, 4.3 minute ride to the top of the mountain. Red Buffalo Park amenities include Kids’ Adventure Zones, snow sculptures, Park 101 and Zoom Room terrain parks, and a dedicated Ski School Skills Zone on Upper Sheephorn trail. Beaver Creek Ski & Snowboard School students will have access to the new Cookie Cabin, a mountaintop refuge serving Beaver Creek’s famed, fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies daily.

“Red Buffalo Park is all about more time skiing with your family in an area that focuses on beginners and intermediate skiers and riders. Upgrading Red Buffalo Express Lift will provide high-speed lift access to the amazing beginner terrain at the top of Beaver Creek, resulting in less time riding the lift and more time skiing,” said Beth Howard, chief operating officer of Beaver Creek Resort. “We expect this improvement to take significant volume off Cinch Express, Beaver Creek’s second most-popular lift, and it really is an improvement befitting of Beaver Creek’s luxury, family experience, as it enhances a key beginner and family area of our mountain.”
