Whether you’re planning upcoming nuptials or not, you’re sure to learn something new and get inspired at the Boulder Wedding Showcase, which is now in its 24th year. Gekd ib Fev. 4 at Rembrandt Yard and The Hotel Boulderado, this event features a range of different vendors, from caterers to photographers to wedding planners. There’s also an educational panel, where you can learn about the latest wedding trends and get tips and advice for your big day.

Pedal Around Town on Winter Bike to Work Day



Want to be less reliant on cars, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and get in a little exercise? Join the festivities of Winter Bike to Work Day on Feb. 9. Visit one of the coffee and breakfast stations throughout town and enter to win prizes by pledging to ride online. You’ll find stations in Boulder, Louisville, Superior, Longmont and Broomfield, like Moe’s Broadway Bagel, Fleet Feet and Lucky’s Market, for example. Encourage your Denver friends to participate, too, as there are tons of stations in the Mile High City as well.

Indulge with a Delicious Meal on Valentine’s Day


Whether you’re flying solo, planning a girls’ night or hoping for a romantic tête-à-tête with your long-term sweetie, Valentine’s Day is a good time to get out and treat yourself to a decadent meal. Many restaurants are offering specials and promotions: Corrida is doing an “El Día de San Valentín” four-course fixed menu, Bramble & Hare is doing a three-course fixed menu, Jax is doing an “Eat Fish, Love Longer” four-course fixed menu and Centro is doing a la carte specials for “Dia de Amor,” just to name a few. Reservations are filling up fast, though, so if you have your heart set on a particular cozy spot, be sure to give them a call or book a table online.

Connect at The Boulder Blind Cafe Music & Dinner in the Dark Experience


Enjoy the music of Rosh & The Blind Cafe Orchestra and The Richie Flores Project while sitting in total darkness at The Boulder Blind Cafe Music & Dinner in the Dark Experience at The Dairy Arts Center on Feb. 13-15. You’ll also enjoy a nourishing Valentine’s dinner. The goal of these innovative events is to bring people together to connect and enact positive social change.

Celebrate Black History Month at the Museum of Boulder


Celebrate Black History Month by making time to see the “Proclaiming Colorado’s Black History” exhibit at the Museum of Boulder, which is designed to be a “comprehensive, but not complete, look at the African American experience in Colorado.” You can wander through on your own, or sign up for a guided tour led by Adrian Miller, aka the “Soul Food Scholar,” or by Annett James, the president of the NAACP Boulder County branch. Or, on Feb. 29, attend a “Listen Back” at the museum featuring Reiland Rabaka, the founder and director of the Center for African & African American Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder.



(While you’re there, also be sure to check out the museum’s newest exhibit, “Boulder Dog Tails.” It features a selection of images from 43 dogs photographed in 39 different Boulder locations for a book by the same name. The photographer, Marsha Steckling, has snapped adorable shots of more than 4,000 dogs at the Longmont Humane Society as a volunteer.)

Celebrate 20 Years of BIFF


The Boulder International Film Festival is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year and it’s guaranteed to be a big party. The festival is scheduled for Feb. 29 to March 3 and, in the meantime, you can still catch the tail end of BIFF’s free virtual film series.
