Crazy flavor

Sweet Cow Ice Cream brings unique, robust treats to Boulder

By Matt Cortina
There is no shame in the occasional indulgence. As long as your actions don’t hurt anybody and you don’t cross the invisible line of no return, joy becomes you during the indulgence of booze, pizza, burritos, fried food and ice cream. Especially ice cream. And especially the ice cream at Sweet Cow.

That’ll work

Good bar grub, better with beer, at Pumphouse

By Matt Cortina
This food was made for beer. So it’s a good thing the beer at Pumphouse Brewery in Longmont is both tasty and plentiful. Otherwise who knows if this bustling restaurant, with an attached bar called Red Zone, would be so bustling. That is to say, most diners in touch with reality and their own pretention, give a pass to fast casual bar and grills on the quality of the meals that accompany the beer, so long as the food is fresh and filling.

Master of one

The loaves — batard, olive and sage, focaccia, ciabatta — are arranged on a glass-covered shelf near the entryway. To the right are piles of croissants, popovers, muffins and more.

Stopping in, stepping out

Caspian Deli & Grocery is great casual food with a story

By Matt Cortina
You’ll have to be OK with picnic casual: good food made simply by friendly people. If you like that, you’ll like Caspian Deli & Grocery — an unassuming Middle Eastern market on Pearl and 26th Street that does nothing but charm as soon as you walk in the door.

Whitewashing the past

A Chicano activist remembers a violent high school walkout 46 years later

By Matt Cortina
Forty-six years ago, a group of Denver high school students and Chicano supporters participated in a walkout. Some were beaten by police and arrested. They were protesting the fact that a history teacher was teaching them a washed-over, ethnocentric version of history.

Double vision

Clever combinations and exceeded expectations at Bao Asian Fusion

By Matt Cortina
Unsurprisingly, the Asian fusion restaurant was all about combinations. But not in the way one might expect. Indeed, expectations for Bao Asian Fusion in Louisville were sort of blurry. The building is a big beige block on a busy intersection, flanked by a closed-down Chili’s and an Outback Steakhouse, that you have to drive through a McDonald’s parking lot to get to.

BLACK IN BOULDER

Boulder racism through the eyes of people of color

By Matt Cortina
It’s the Boulder liberal attitude versus the KKK,” says Derrick Jones, a black professor at Naropa living in Boulder. He’s trying to decide what’s worse. “For me, I can respect to a degree someone who identifies as a member of the KKK and is out with their views. It’s a little easier to take in, digest and in some degree respect than to encounter racism denial, because I know what I’m getting. It’s a little harder to accept the racist activity or the perpetuation of a privilege structure from someone who claims to be colorblind or not racist or liberal.”
