Downtown on a Dime--Entertainment

Posted on April 27, 2015

I’m back with more money saving tips! This time, I’m reporting on discounted entertainment for you, your family, and all your friends to enjoy. There’s live music, painting classes and more so make sure to check out the cultural offerings downtown!


  • Blue Grass Jam: Every Monday, West Flanders Brewing Company has live Blue Grass music at 6:30! This jam session is awesome because anyone can bring an instrument along and join in on the fun. Stop by the restaurant on the 1100 block of the mall and try their Chicken Guac Burger (my personal favorite) while listening to some great live tunes!
  • POSHSplat Kids Night Out: Wanting to go on a date night but don’t have a sitter? Look no further! Drop the kiddos off at POSHSplat for an evening of painting and fun! They host a monthly Kid’s Night Out, where they’ll entertain your children while you hit the town. This month, your kids will get step-by-step instructions on how to paint “Red Rocks Amphitheatre” and leave with a masterpiece of their own!
  • Chief Niwot—Legend and Legacy: For those museum fans out there, this one’s for you! The Boulder History Museum is hosting this award-winning historical exhibition through December 2015. It displays Chief Niwot story, struggles, and contribution to the advancement of Colorado’s history as well as artifacts of the Southern Arapahoe People. If you’re willing to make the quick drive to the Museum on the hill, admission is $6 for adults, $4 for seniors, and $3 for children & students. The best part is they have FREE admission for all on the first Sunday of every month!
  • UnbelivaBUBBLE BOULDER!: On May 1st, the 1300 block of Pearl will full of bubbles, great music, and lots of creativity and imagination, and it’s all FREE! Bring the whole family to the event and listen to the Mayor of Boulder read a proclamation of the day and Dr. David Brain from CU Boulder give a talk about getting humans to Mars. After the fun event, take the family out to dinner at either Pizza Coloré or Lazy Dog for an inexpensive, but delicious meal!

Whether you’re a college student on a limited budget or a busy family of 4, there’s something fun to do downtown for everyone! I try to bring you the “best of the best” in discounted events, but make sure to check out the events calendar so you don’t miss any of the wonderful things happening downtown.  Next time on “Downtown on a Dime”: I’ll be back with low-cost shopping options for you and your friends to enjoy downtown!  (*insert dramatic theme music*)

That’s all for now!
