My perfect day in Boulder

  • Snowboard (or ski or snowshoe) up at Eldora Mountain Resort for a half day - it's 30 minutes up through Boulder Canyon. 
  • Or, try your rock climbing skills at The Spot Bouldering Gym.
  • Take a free brewery tour at Avery Brewing Company and make sure to stop by the tap room at the end of your tour to try some of their amazing beers.  As far as my favorite goes, it's a toss up between The Reverend and Mephistopheles' Stout.
  • Head to the West End of Pearl Street for dinner at my restaurant, Centro Latin Kitchen & Refreshment Palace.
