from what i gathered, it doesn't seem like there are any VBers from colorado. but hey, can't hurt to make sure i guess..
i'll be moving to boulder the beginning of next month. i'm not going to know anyone there except for this one guy i've never even met. so if there's anyone from the area out there, drop me a line, i'd love to meet up
I wouldn't worry about Whole Foods all that much. If you can find better places than that to shop in Boulder, more power to you, but otherwise, that's a great place to start. I wish I could remember the name of that cool restaurant on Pearl Street that was so veg-friendly.
I think I saw it listed at one of those travel-related veg sites, like The Happy Cow, or whatever. Check 'em out.
Sorry, stonecrest...but I had a toddler and an infant while living in CO. (I was a pretty big homebody and I wasn't a vegan yet) Yet, there is a vegan society, lots of vegetarians and vegans...esp in Boulder. I don't think it's going to be a challenge for you. (*jealous*)
Pearl Street mall is great and if you need to buy a neat toy for someone...check out Grand Rabbits. Have fun in Boulder...
Also, the Mayan movie theater in denver is nice for a special movie...I saw Sense and Sensability there when it came out.
ohh..i know what resturaunt you're talking about, on Pearl Street, epski - the kinda nicer one?
YUM! that is probably the best veggie place i've been. they serve carrot butter with the bread..(if we're talking about the same place) - freakin awsome! my best friend took me there after we came back from this crazy hike in the Flatirons, heh..so we were not looking our best, and this place was pretty nice. we got some strange looks..but wow! amazing food!
i don't mind boulder, but it is pretty upper class and pricey (not a bad thing)...
last time i was in CO i went to fort collins - i wasnt too impressed. anyone live/been to gunnison? i was interested in going to school there, but the cold changed my mind, heh.
you'll love the area, stonecrest! just stay away from the denver smog!!
Hi! I'm from the UK but have spent some time in Boulder and it is my favourite place! I love everything about the place....great vegetarian food, no smoking, great people, great air and amazing mountains!!!! Not forgetting the Denver Broncos!!
Great places to eat in Boulder and Pearl street is great. So many options for vegetarian food. I so wish I was there right now!
So Funkified, you were disappointed by my town? Well I do not blame you. We've got a great Vitamin Cottage here and Wild Oats Market and the Rainbow Restaurant that serves lots of veg food. But other than that, it's not as Veg friendly as Boulder. We've also got a variety of thrift shops to choose from.
And for those of you in Boulder, I would recommend that you shop at the Vitamin Cottage there (I work at the one in Fort Collins and the prices are less. Plus a friend of mine who worked at Wild Oats said they failed health inspections twice in the time he was there and that they are generally not very nice to employees). Not to bad mouth them or anything..... still a nice store.
And on The Hill in Boulder is a great sub shop with vegan and vege subs galore, go there, it is called Half Fast Subs. There's also great music venues up there and CD Stores (The Fox, Tulagi, Wax Trax, and Albums on the Hill). I spend a lot of time in Boulder because I love the activism here, not too much up here in the Fort. But as far as living goes, I find it a nicer atmosphere here and much MUCH cheaper living. Plus I go to Colorado State University and it's an excellent school.
i'm moving to Boulder because i will be attending CU for grad school. i'm also doing an internship at NREL in Golden. i thought about commuting for a while and then finally decided that a 1800 mile commute might be a bit too far
i've also been looking at a few apartments (well, looking online since i'm not there yet) and i suppose it might seem expensive but wow, these apartments are so much cheaper than new jersey! heh. anyway, i'm absolutely so excited to be moving to an environmentally friendly and nature oriented town, i really think it's my kind of place. hopefully i'm not getting my expectations up too high!
i'm not exactly sure where fort collins is yet or what it's like but my brother gave me a book about colorado just today so i'll be reading up on it before i come out. hopefully i won't stand out too much as a jersey guy
