Reader: Beware the cheesy, "foodie" people of Boulder

The news that Boulder, the "foodiest town" in the country, will finally get a specialty cheese shop when Cured opens next month was greeted enthusiastically by most readers -- and with some skepticism from Dave M:

There was a great specialty cheese shop in Boulder a couple years ago. The supposedly "foodie" people of Boulder didn't support it well enough and it ended up going out of business. They seem more likely to just buy their cheese when they go to Whole Foods to shop. I give this new place a year maximum.

Boulder foodies, it's up to you to prove Dave M wrong.
