The Boulderado has some tread on its tires. The landmark Boulder hotel will celebrate its hundredth year in 2009, beginning with an elaborate New Year's Eve gala and an open house on January 4.
But you don't have to wait until then to enjoy the Boulderado's most noteworthy feature: the buffet. The hotel has offered seasonal --Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and Mother's Day -- spreads for "about fifteen to twenty years," says marketing assistant Lynn Brewer. "We have people making reservations in July for the Christmas buffet, and it has become a tradition for Boulderites."
