So there's this event, put on by Raw Artists, that's coming to Boulder on Sunday. It'll be showcasing 30 local artists — fashion designers, filmmakers, musicians, performers and more — in a huge celebration of this town's creativity.

And if you head over to, you can snag tickets, read about this nationally touring operation and the fashion show, film-screening, art gallery and more they plan to put on.

It sounds like an incredible production. But here's why you'll never see this foxy face in their showcase:

I'm the girl with Disney princess coloring sheets pinned to her wall that she filled in using crayons with her 20-something pals. I confessed recently my watching of the Twilight saga, so I'm out on films. My iTunes has so many boy and girl bands hidden away it's embarrassing.

And well, this lack-of-fashion girl wore a Del Taco trucker hat around the newsroom last night.

So yeah. I'm going to leave the creative expression to the local pros on this one. It all starts at the Absinthe House at 5 p.m. Sunday. And it's 18 and up, for you beautiful tots out there.

Allow me to get back to something I actually know something about.



The folks at Fate Brewing (1600 38th St.), true to form, have concocted another delightful brew for us to sip on as we swelter in this heat. The Nona Belgian Blonde is back, just tapped this week.

God I'm so thankful the light beers are back in my life (and tum-tums).

Better yet, you can go and try this Denver International Beer fest gold medal winner while watching some soccer. Fate will be opening their doors at 10 a.m. for World Cup games, and want you all there watching some sexy athletes play a quality sport.

(Seriously, though. The World Cup's basically eye candy for anyone who can appreciate beautiful, fit men. Yum.)

Wild Woods brewers (5460 Conestoga Ct.) have also released new flavors into our lives for the summer. This week, they brought back their Tropical Paradise Imperial IPA. This bad boy sits at 11 percent ABV, and has some ginger and mangoes in there to trick those taste buds of yours.

Go try some. And if they're out, never fear. Their whole lineup is worth the trip.

And finally, for you folks who, like me, need a little incentive to run, head over to

There you'll find a place to register for Avery Brewing's (5757 Arapahoe Ave.) Four on the Fourth 4K. Run 2.48 miles and get a beer and breakfast burrito. Dare you to find something wrong with that plan.

Yes, it's happening on July 4, but you need to register early, hence the nagging now.

And finally, the Classic Movie Series is back this Sunday at License No. 1 (2115 13th St.). I tell you this because, if Pinterest is any indication, there's a few Marilyn Monroe lovers in my age bracket. And this weekend, they're showing "The Seven Year Itch" at 5 p.m. and "Some Like it Hot" at 8 p.m.

Check it out, and remember to write this classy broad if you know about a cool event.
