Sure, there were houses, but any businesses that existed were remnants of a bygone era and the Boulder Community Hospital wasn’t even a glimmer in the city planner’s eye.
It’s those sorts of memories that make me really happy to see East Boulder turning into a really interesting community of its own. Sure, it’s more residential than other areas of Boulder, but now there are great places for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and drinks all within relatively close proximity.
I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels excited about this community’s expansion. In fact, I know I’m not, because there are several businesses in East Boulder so invested in the growth of the community, they’ve formed what they call the Eastern Bloc.
The Eastern Bloc consists of three businesses share an alley as well as a likeminded belief in quality, community, and collaboration. Thus, they decided to create a coalition of craft.
