House Guests with Bliss
After years of traveling and a career in art and design, Amy Wildgrube, found a new home in Bliss —an inspiring atmosphere that features the creations of many fabulous artisans and the freshest styles from designers.
First stop… Bliss, of course! We love to show off the beautiful work of our local artisans that we carry ~ jewelry, art, cards, home decor, hand-poured candles… even hand-hammered copper Moscow mule mugs. Everyone wants to pack a slice of Boulder into their suitcase and take it home.
Boulder Arts & Crafts Gallery has been a hit for all our out-of-towners. The handmade treasures inspire our guests, just like our beautiful sunshine and Flatirons. For clothes, we love wandering Barbara & Company, Nani Nalu and Island Farm.
If the kiddos are in tow, we usually detour to Into the Wind, Liberty Puzzles and the Boulder Book Store. When the weather is nice and we can be outdoors, we enjoy a glass of wine on the patio at the St Julien. A great view of the Flatirons to melt into!
Our top spot to take guests is the Dushanbe Tea House, both the food and ambiance are curiously artistic. We also really enjoy Mateo for dinner or, for that matter, also lunch. If we have the kiddos with us, easy-peasy, we pop over to Pizza Locale, the adults and kids are all equally happy. Something for everyone, casual, yet refined.
Breakfast.. well Snooze of course! Late night we, let the kids loose to shake about at Band on the Bricks. Enjoy a yummy coin or two at The Rio. Catch a concert, comedy act or film at the historic Boulder Theater.
