Day 210 of the Nowhere To Be Project was spent lazily sipping sangria at Blue Moose Pizzeria in the Lionshead corridor of Vail. While the sangria was effervescent, fruity and refreshing, the best part was the price, $2.18. This was just one more wonderful promotion for Vail’s restaurant week. There are still several days left to enjoy affordable food in Vail and that’s not something we can say very often! Cheers!
Day 48 of the Nowhere To Be Project was spent in Boulder, Colorado. Boulder is about a two hour drive from my home in Vail. The Drive through the mountains is so beautiful that the hours fly by. Boulder is primarily known as a college town. It also happens to be a dining and shopping paradise with an undeniable hippy vibe. There are also several cool camping sites, so I’ll definitely return in the RV and plan to stay for a few days next time.
We dined al fresco with my pooch at Japango, a cool Asian restaurant with many vegan options. I had the soba noodles with vegetable tempura. YUM! My fellow diners went with the Bento boxes (one salmon and one teriyaki chicken) and loved them. The standout of my meal was the Rosé Sake Sangria. DOUBLE YUM!
After lunch we walked through the busy outdoor pedestrian mall of Pearl Street. The street is peppered with street artists and both boho and upscale shopping options. I lucked into several treasures in a fair trade shop called the Boulder Artisan Store at 1123 Pearl Street. All the items appear to be one-of-a-kind are handmade by global artisans. The other standouts were an indie bookstore and a vintage record store.
It was a warm and sunny day in Boulder and we wish we could have stayed longer. If you find yourself in the area, be sure to make time for Boulder. You will absolutely love it!
