Everything Else

It is close, big and has great views. It is our neighborhood "beach". There is a wide open field for walking and games, lots of trees for shade and hammocks, fields for sports, a park for exercise, and a BBQ and hangout space where you can tak shelter if it rains.

The most iconic trail system in Boulder. It lies at the foot of the flat irons and offers great views. Parking is limited and there can will likely be "crowds" on weekends.

Food Scene

A friend, Robb, owns it and it is delicious. It is new and a bit upscale but you will not be let down with the food, drinks or experience. Classic Boulder Farm to Table cuisine with food that wont leave you feeling too full at the end. If you like cider there is a huge selection. If you don't like it, you might after you leave :). If you go, let him know you are staying at my place.

It is a bit expensive in my opinion but we vote with our dollar and I have to think they pay their employees well and provide solid benefits. They brew their own beer and it is a fun place supporting good people. The vibe is definitely new age consciousness with fun art installations, potions and that kind of stuff.
