East Pearl, Boulder
When strolling away from the mountains along Boulder’s Pearl Street walking mall, keep your eyes open for a local favorite, Mountain Sun. This English-style pub and brewery does not have any TVs on the wall, but it does have a stack of board games available along with a long list of its own beers and delicious pub food to wash those beers down. The fries are excellent. To satisfy any pizza cravings, cross the street to Pizzeria Locale. The authentic wood-fired pizzas and calzones will make you think you’re in Italy
. And just a little farther down the road is the combo shop of Boxcar Coffee Roasters and Cured. The latter carries specialty wine, meats, and cheese.
