Boulder: Bask in the sun as it rolls over the foothills…blah blah blah. Ever wanted to duck into a windowless watering hole while your aunt from out of town shops for a fleece vest at Patagonia? Descend into the subterranean Sundown, which promises booze and plenty of it. As its name implies, it is dark. It’s also dirty (we think; you can’t really see inside), and there are pool tables (we’ve been told; you can’t really see inside). It’s a place where you can completely forget than you’re in Boulder, which is exactly what Boulder calls for some of the time.
