Boulder at NightBoulder at Night: Three cheers for Scrooges

This weekend: Boulder Festivus, Lights of December Parade, funk and beer
12/04/2014 09:07 PM MST
Boulder has developed a solution to those of us choking on tinsel and muting holiday commercials. It's our own Boulder Festivus. Inspired by Denver's Festivus, this inaugural event will be a night of food and craft beers made right in town. (Way better than cookies and milk for a known breaking-and-entering creep, clad in red felt.) Friday night, the Rembrandt Yard (1301 Spruce St.) will fill with brews from a bunch of local breweries all eager to bring holiday cheer to even the Grinchiest of us.

Second Story Garage: The Dustbowl Revival

They're called The Dustbowl Revival, but "dustbowl" should be read as style, not politics. It's more Mardi Gras than "Grapes of Wrath." You could see this band with all their belongings on the back of a wagon heading west, but it would be a party. Their Americana swing gets you tapping your toes and raising your glass. No one's down on their luck here. Full Story
