Fun at the Pearl Street Mall, Boulder, Colorado


Last year we did a staycation and spent a week at the Hyatt Place here in Boulder, Colorado. While there we were able to do something that we hadn’t done since we lived her in CO. We walked up and down the Pearl Street Mall. It was nice to be out and about, but the most fun was watching all the street performers.

We had tried the location in Moab, but not the one here in Boulder. We both had their gnocchi and it was amazing. I highly suggest trying it sometime.

He was awesome, and is reported to be Denver’s favorite fire juggler and comedian. It definitely didn't take much time for him to became my favorite. He was hilarious and even dragged Gene and 3 other guys into the show, lol. It was a blast, and he was so funny. Sadly I can’t remember everything he said. However, here is  a short clip from his act.  He had us (the audience) cracking up the whole time. He even dragged a couple of kids into the show too.

Speaking of kids, there were a couple of things they really enjoyed. One of the first things we saw was a person dressed up like dog, barking and rolling over for treats (money). It was cute and the kids got a kick out of throwing change in his dog bowl.

Which I suggest since parking can be a nightmare in the area. Hope to see it all decked out for Christmas some year (obviously not this year). When we do, I will come back and share some more pictures.
