BUSINESSES & SERVICES

DANCE CLASS FOR ALL AGES: ALCHEMY OF MOVEMENT

This class isn’t so much about perfecting dance moves as it is about letting unbridled sensuality take over. Leave your ego and performance anxiety at the door. Think of Soul Sweat as a funky interpretive dance with Latin, hip hop and even tribal influences. 2436 30th St, Boulder

FRIENDLIEST PHARMACY: BEATTIES

You won’t find eggs or detergent here. Beattie’s is a drugstore without the fluff. As a compounding pharmacy, they can customize almost any prescription to your needs onsite, which comes in handy for allergies or yucky medicine that needs flavor. They’ll even fill your pet’s RX! 3140 Village Vista Dr, Erie

BEST LLAMA AND DOG BONDING AREA: COTTONWOOD KENNELS

On a farm east of Boulder lies a fetching Bed and Breakfast where dogs can ‘Stay and Play,’ get a makeover and mingle with a motley crew of sheep and alpaca named Nicholas. 7275 Valmont Rd, Boulder

BEST GET-TO-KNOW-YOU VENUE: CRACKPOTS POTTERY STUDIO

This huge, loft-style studio is a feast for the artist’s eye, but no skill is required here. Bring a date, the kids, a gaggle of girlfriends, or even have your shower here! Choose from hundreds of pottery pieces to paint, or try silver fingerprint jewelry, glass or mosaics. 501 Main St, Longmont

FRIENDLIEST MOVING COMPANY: TAYLOR MOVING SERVICES

Residential or commercial, local or one way, full service or just the truck…you get one reasonable rate with no hidden fees. Really cool: They help relocate YS employees. Multiple locations

HEALTH & BEAUTY

MEDICAL MARIJUANA: THE FARM

Cow-spotted glass pipes aside, The Farm offers one weekly haircut or massage to all of their patients, a binder of their CannLab-tested weed and fantastic realism (read: trippy) paintings by local artist Martina Hoffmann. 2801 Iris Ave, Boulder

BEST PLACE TO WORK OUT (AND DRINK): SPORTS OAISIS VOLLEYBALL COMPANY

It already feels like a tropical haven with their seven indoor sand courts, beach chairs and music system for your volleyball game. Add a full bar and kitchen, and the facility becomes an absolute retreat. 2400 W Midway Blvd, Broomfield
