Rio if you like mexican (little expensive though) Get the spicy green sauce on whatever you get. Never been to mountain sun but southern sun is good so I second that. If you find yourself needing lunch one day walnut cafe is really good too. Definitely check out Pearl St.

Make sure and hit up backcountry pizza in Nederland, awesome little pizza bar! &, if you didn't know, the green stuff is completely legal within city limits there!

food
 
so from all the posts so far, i gather that the only thing to do in boulder besides snowboarding is eating, and the 'green stuff' (which im by no means against, thats pretty ballin).....anything besides food?

If the weather is going to be around 50 degrees, go for a hike in the Flatirons. The Mallory Cave trail will get your heart pumping and it's stunning scenery. Royal Arch, 3rd Flatiron, Fern Canyon are other great hikes in the area.

Visit Eldorado Canyon State Park. Lot's of great hikes there, and it's one of the top 3 climbing mecca's in the United States. Just look up at the sunny walls and you are bound to see someone climbing up there.

Make the quick drive to Golden and take a free tour at the Coors Factory. Or if you just want to skip the tour and get to the free beer, ask for a pass for the "short tour" and go straight to the bar. I believe it's still three free beers. Blue Moon is on top there in addition to the standard Coors fair.

Go ice climbing in Rocky Mountain National Park.

Get a Colfax Hooker in Denver.

Go sled neckin' with Milo and kick him in the nutz...

Table Mountain in Golden is hands down the best spot to do winter craggin'. On a sunny day it's almost 10 degrees warmer at the base of the cliffs than in the parking lot below.

yep super warm there but the climbing doesnt compare. Great for a colder day where you jut have to get out though. I did yellow spur at eldo last thurs in a t-shirt! probably gonna hit eldo again sunday if its really in the mid 50s

Well, it's sport versus trad. Two completely different animals. Still it's the warmest spot around. Eldo is okay, it gets decent sun for sure. A lot of the sunny lines are more committing which can lead to mini epics.

Yellow Spur is a great route, top 5 multi pitch in Colorado almost certainly.
