Back to Boulder

Monday, August 6, 2012



I’m currently writing from my new apartment in the Spanish Towers in Boulder, Colorado. I could not be happier to be back.

Being back in Boulder means that the end of the summer is just around the corner, and this means that I will have to say goodbye to my job at the Capitol.

How do I say goodbye to a job that had the best hours, gave me great experience and was in a prime location? Luckily, I have Boulder to come home to so I suppose it will make the goodbyes a little easier.

Something else that will make saying goodbye to the Capitol a little easier is saying hello to all of my favorite Boulder eateries.

A few of my favorite restaurants—

For Breakfast:

The Buff.  From steak and eggs to the classic pancake breakfast, you will definitely find your new favorite breakfast here.  If you don’t believe me, maybe the host of Man vs. Food will convince you.

For Lunch:

Salvaggio’s. Always. There are no words to describe this magical sandwich. But, my favorite sandwiches are pastrami and cracked pepper turkey. They have fresh baked bread and the slice the meat right in front of you! Best. Sandwich. Ever.

For Dessert:

Boulder Baked. If you learn one thing about me, (besides that I love Colorado and CU) it should be that dessert is my favorite meal.  I would eat cupcakes and cookies for breakfast, lunch and dinner if I knew it wouldn’t kill me. With that, you can assume that I am a pretty good judge of baked goods.  I can’t even choose which Boulder Baked cookie would be my favorite…maybe the classic chocolate chip or the oatmeal chocolate chip? But, my favorite cupcake in the world is the Boulder Baked Strawberry Shortcake cupcake.  Yum!


You might be sad to say goodbye to your home cooked meals, but fear not! With on campus meal options like the C4C and various restaurants around town, you won’t go hungry here.
