Computer Repair

APPLE RETAIL STORE
1755 29th St., 720-479-9451

Second Place: Mac Shack
Third Place: Boulder Mac Repair
Fourth Place: iSupportU
Fifth Place: Boulder PC

A cracked screen ain’t no thang for the winner of Boulder’s best computer repair: the Apple Retail Store. Come
at the right time and your tech may double as your technological
therapist, listening to the tragic story of how you knocked over an open
bottle of kombucha directly on top of your keyboard. Whatever your
conundrum, the staff at Apple know what they are doing and understand
the importance of a well-functioning machine.


Farm

MUNSON FARMS
75th and Valmont Road, 415-298-1500

Second Place: Cure Organic Farm
Third Place: Haystack Mountain Goat Dairy
Fourth Place: Anderson Farms
Fifth Place: Boulder Community Gardens

When Outstanding in the Field announced its July 2013 farm-to-table dinner at Munson Farms, the
company named Munson one of its favorite farms to work with out of the
hundreds they visit each year, from California to Maine. The farm is
as beloved by locals as it is by out-of-towners, winning the best farm
title again this year. Bob Munson runs the farm with his sons, Chris
and Mike, and keeps a busy schedule that sees the summer produce of
tomatoes and leafy greens into a fall filled with squash and sweet corn —
some of which is transformed into their homemade popcorn — replaced in
cooler months with a pumpkin patch and Christmas trees. The season’s
best is available at their farm stand at the corner of 75th Street and
Valmont and at local farmers’ markets.


Hotel

ST. JULIEN HOTEL & SPA
900 Walnut St., 720-406-9696

Second Place: Hotel Boulderado
Third Place: Boulder Outlook Hotel & Suites
Fourth Place: Chautauqua
Fifth Place: Boulder Marriott

Got friends or family coming into town? Recommend this year’s winner for best hotel, St. Julien Hotel & Spa, for
posh rooms, luxurious common areas, fireplaces and armchairs. And
that’s only the beginning. Guests can pamper themselves in the
10,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, too. The Hotel Boulderado
takes second place this year. It’s awesome, too, in a more historic way.
Ask for help from the friendly staff, because otherwise you can get
mixed up by the hotel’s separate wings. No, room 215 doesn’t necessarily
have to be near room 216. Why? Because the Boulderado is historic,
that’s why.
