This past weekend, my friend T.J. came to visit my friend Jacquie and me. When your friends come to visit it is a little different than when your parents come to visit because you have to spend your own money. Luckily, showing off Boulder on a budget isn't very hard. We started out the weekend breakfast to show off our amazing dining hall, the C4C. This dining hall has amazing breakfast food including omlettes and breakfast burritos. Whenever a friend comes to visit, I like to show off our dining hall and make them jealous of the food that we get to eat everyday. We then showed him The Hill and took him to Rush, my favorite smoothie place ever. This was followed by a trip to the Pearl Street Mall.
The Pearl Street Mall is the perfect place to show off Boulder. We luckily had a beautiful weekend and spent hours walking around on the mall. We walked into many different stores and played with everything we could. My favorite store to look around in on the Pearl Street Mall is a store called Into The Wind. This store is filled with many different toys and fun games that you can play with. We spent about an hour and a half in the store playing with all of the toys. If you are coming to visit, make sure you visit this store for some fun. We then watched a hilarious street performer by the name of Derek Derek. When we walked up he was juggling fire while making hilarious cracks at the audience. I was laughing the entire time he was performing. Although I was sad to say goodbye to T.J., I had so much fun this weekend and it will be one I will never forget.
