Do we cover Boulder too often? Not often enough? Too gently? Not harshly enough?

Ellen's suggestion that Cafe Society needs to take a more contemporary approach to Boulder inspired this response from chuckroast:

For Ellen's sake, instead of calling Boulderites the "Granola Set," just call them "Humorless Assholes."

And then Mantonat weighed in::

Boulderites don't eat granola anymore because their kids are all allergic to the peanuts in the granola. Stop dissing Boulder or you're going to get stabbed with an epi-pen or run over by a double-wide stroller.

But BSquared brought the discussion back where it belongs: to food. Even though he thinks we write too often about food in Boulder:

Ever since Laura Shunk came on board, Westword has been all about Boulder. I don't think there has been any bashing of Boulder, in fact some of us Denver'ites have been bitching about how much coverage IS being written about Boulder joints.

Go ahead, BSquared: Bitch about Lori Midson's Chef and Tell interview with Lachlan Mackinnon-Patterson...we dare you!

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
