March at the Hotel Boulderado

When I was in grade school, I learned that the weather in March was "in like a lion, out like a lamb." And I fully believed that. Until I moved to Colorado, that is. We can have lions and lambs in the very same day.

Anyway. New month, new week, and I thought I'd bring you up to speed on a few events happening here at the Boulderado and also around downtown.
  • Denver Restaurant Week has already kicked off, but you can still take advantage through this Friday. Q's Restaurant is on the list of participating eateries, so stop by to taste Chef Platt's creations.
  • Looking to unleash your inner fashionista? Downtown Boulder is hosting Fashion Under the Flatirons on March 11th at the Boulder Theater, showcasing a variety of local merchants' spring lines. Enjoy a runway fashion show, silent auction beauty stations, food, drinks, and your Emcee for the evening, World Cup Freestyle Ski Champion Jeremy Bloom.
  • Murder Mystery Dinner series returns! Try your mind at sleuthing for an evening and discover how you stack up next to Sherlock Holmes. There's an uproarious troupe -- 'Til Death Do Us Party -- who comes in to help us with the show, and this time the story is set in the troubled year of 1941. A buffet dinner, cocktail, and valet parking are all included in the $64 ticket price, along with all your taxes and gratuities. Really, where can you find a better deal for dinner and a show in downtown Boulder? We have three dates open: March 12th, 19th, and 26th. Make your reservations with us now, because our Murder Mystery Dinners have a sneaky habit of selling out!
  • There's going to be a St. Patrick's Day Celebration on our Mezzanine with jazzy Irish music from The Green Party. Admission is free, but if you'd like to partake in our Irish Buffet, it's $17 per person. All your favorite Irish foods will be here -- corned beef, cabbage, potatoes, and a mint chocolate chip mousse that will make you feel luckier than any Irishman.
