The “I Moved to Boulder and…” event at our office this week attracted some veteran Boulderites in addition to those newer to the area. The four panelists discussed their jobs, where they live, and the things they like to do including disc golf, enjoying the night life on Pearl Street, hiking in the snow, running, and listening to live music.
One panelist, Courtney, described how she was surprised by the friendliness of Boulderites after moving here from New York City. She had a brace on her leg due to an injury, and it seemed that everywhere she went in Boulder, concerned passers-by were curious about her injury, how she was doing, and quick to offer help.
Sean, also familiar with east coast life, illustrated the difference between a typical business encounter in New Jersey (unfriendly secretary rudely asking “Whaddya want?”) and one in Boulder (outgoing business prospect inviting “Want to talk about it over a beer?”).
Another panelist, Julian, talked about his move from Florida, and how he loves living near Pearl Street and the ability to walk almost anywhere he wants to be.
In addition to the panel discussion, we enjoyed a large variety of soda flavors from Rocket Fizz. The most disgusting, by far, was the ranch dressing flavor. We have plenty of left over bottles of that one, if you’d like to stop by and pick one up!
Thanks for attending and we’ll see you next year!
