There's nothing like being a kid at summer camp. For the youth of Boulder County, there are a million and one summer camps to check out (yes, a million and one, that's an official statistic. Really.

Scene Stealers March 2018

The Big Lebowski at Boulder Theater Ethan and Joel Coen — also known as simply The Coen Brothers — have struck gold plenty of times with their fantastical characters, stunning imagery and absurdist storytelling across a slew of beloved movies, including Miller’s Crossing, Raising Arizona, The Hudsucker Proxy, Fargo, and O Brother Where Art Thou!, to name a few.

Spotlight on Jessica Jones

Marvel may have the super hero, but the real life hometown hero is far more impressive. Trust me on this one. After weeks of trying, I caught up with the hardest-working woman in Colorado’s music scene on a snowy Tuesday night. Over tacos and wine we dove into her origin story, where I learned that not only is the Centennial State’s most prolific songstress busier than I even realized, she...

Boulder Tea Party: Tracing Tea From Towns To Teacups

Photos by Victoria Edstedt   An old Chinese legend describes the tradition of tea-drinking as a pure accident. Emperor Shen Nong used boiled water in therapeutic purposes on a daily basis. Once, the wind blew some leaves that fell into his cup creating a pleasant aroma. Out of curiosity, the Emperor made a few sips, liked the taste and felt more energetic, so he ordered to begin tea...

Temple’s Grand Ideas

Temple Grandin met up with me in the restaurant at the Hilton in Ft. Collins, a place where she's a regular and the staff know her quirks. We discussed her work with autistic folks over family style appetizers. I began by telling her how I had heard about her from African ranchers almost a decade ago. She wasn’t surprised. What follows is brief excerpts of our very long...
