Let’s face it; every month in Boulder is a good month. In fact, most of them are pretty outstanding, and this March is no exception. The Fox and Boulder Theater have wonderful lineups this month, and warmer weather – or at least above freezing temperatures – mean the start of local food tours again. And, with March comes one of Boulder’s favorite charity events: St. Baldrick’s Shave.
St. Baldrick’s NetApp Boulder Shave Event
Boulder’s annual St. Baldrick’s Shave event is being held on Monday, March 12th at the good ole’ Dark Horse Bar.
For years, Boulder has been one of the many cities to put on this event that raises money – and hair donations – to support childhood cancer research, and each year the turnout is bigger and bigger.
Be part of this wonderful cause. The event goes from 2-5:30pm. Good food, drink, and company are guaranteed. Signing up for the event is a piece of cake, in fact, you can do it right here.
St. Patrick’s Day in Boulder
It’s safe to assume that there will be plenty of drinking and bar crawls in Boulder this St. Patrick’s Day. But if the busy bar seen isn’t quite how you want to celebrate the holiday, consider heading to Blackbelly for a beer dinner instead.
Blackbelly Catering and Sanitas Brewing Co. are teaming up to bring you an unforgettable St. Patrick’s Day dinner featuring local brews, accompanied by a masterfully crafted multi-course menu. Chef Hosea Rosenberg, also known as the winner of Top Chef Season 5, is an avid beer lover, so it’s safe to say that his dishes will be divine and a perfect compliment to the brews offered.
Coffee and Chocolate Tour
Boulder is overflowing with coffee shops, many of which are independently owned. If you’re a coffee connoisseur itching to try the best of the best, then you’re in luck. Starting Saturday March 1st, and continuing every Saturday for 19 weeks, Local Table Tours will be hosting a coffee and chocolate tour of Boulder’s finest, independently owned coffee shops. At each café, you’ll have an opportunity to tap into the coffee knowledge of Boulder’s talented baristas. The tour finishes off with a stop at Boulder’s chocolate boutique (independently
owned, of course). Need we say more?
Taste of Boulder
From now until the end of June, every Friday should be known as Good Grub Friday. Why? Because the Taste of Boulder Dining Tour is back! Guided by a local foodie, these tours take you to downtown Boulder’s hottest, independently owned, restaurants.
Now, this isn’t some run-of-the-mill tour where you’re given samples, or appetizers at best. Two meals, as well as dessert, will be served at three different restaurants, so come hungry. Traditionally, these tours are open to the public, but if you’re interested in doing a private tour, that’s certainly a possibility.
Concerts this month:
The Fox Theatre is hosting a great selection of concerts. Kicking off the month are The Magic Beans, whose popularity throughout Boulder has skyrocketed in recent years. Papadosio plays for two nights, followed by The Travelin’ McCourys with Bill Nershi, Toubab Krewe, Conspirator, and finally, Buckcherry. The Boulder Theater also has a great lineup this month. Dr. Dog, Griz, The Pink Floyd Experience, Mike Gordon, and Dark Star Orchestra are just a few of the impressive talents coming through in March.
It’s no wonder that people from all over the country – and world – come flocking to Boulder. There’s always something to do, and it almost always involves good company, food, and beverages. Make the most of this month and explore all that our beautiful city has to offer.
