Foodie news for Denver/Boulder?

Is there a site/blog (other than Chowhound) that lets us know when there's some hot news in Boulder/Denver? I missed the Great American Food Truck Race (Food network) when it was here earlier this year and was bummed. Or when a celeb is in town filming a review of a restaurant?

  1. I don't know, Peachie. I'm your Black Hills neighbor 6 hrs. north. It seems this part of the country, from Denver to Sioux Falls gets negected on foodie sites, especially here, and Yelp. It's either Pacific Northwest, the South, the East coast, or the Midwest (Kansas, St. Louie, etc.). Sniff sniff. It's too bad really, because our region has a lot of good food to offer: restaurants, diners, etc.

      We definitely get celeb chefs/tv personalities, we just don't always know about them. And it's true, we don't get as many as other cities.

    2. You can check the Westword "Cafe Society" blog,; it's mostly Denver and Boulder. Also, Claire Walter (who posts here regularly) has a Boulder-based food blog at, and Ruth Tobias (also a Chowhound poster) has a food blog at Not sure if any of these are quite what you're looking for, but between them and Chowhound you can get a reasonably complete picture of what's going on.

        Ditto everything Monopod said. You can also follow many of the restaurants or food trucks on twitter or facebook. They post updates frequently.

          That's true. I'm just trying to find one central location like Chowhound that consolidates all of the info.

        2. re: monopod

          Thanks, Monopod. I'll check into those. Chowhound has been a great resource, if not providing the info I need, then certainly people who know where to get the answers.

              Hey guys - i'm moving from Hoboken, NJ to Boulder early next year for work (might be for a year, maybe more), and i was hoping you might be able to give me some recommendations on where to live (what part of town, or neighborhood)? Ideally, i'd like to live near as many restaurants in walking distance as possible, and in close proximity to outdoorsy atmosphere. I'm a 38-yr old laid-back guy, love good beer and great food, wine bars, etc.

              I'm looking for a rental (townhouse or condo or whatever), but not sure where in Boulder to start looking...

                Jason, for what you describe, you need to live close to downtown, preferably on the west side of it. You'd be able to hike out your door, and tons of great restaurants out your door. If, however, you don't mind biking, all of Boulder is very accessible by bike (bike paths everywhere). It's not a very large place, so even living on the outskirts isn't that bad (and is cheaper, you pay a premium for downtown living).

                  Thanks man - i'll have my mountain bike, so that's good to hear. Looking forward to exploring the area.
