The Pinyon Bistro

O.K. I just looked through my posts lately and looks like we may be spending too much time sampling the food establishment of Boulder.

But last nights meal needs to be celebrated. Cyndy and I think we have a new favorite and it is The Pinyon Bistro on East Pearl.  To say it is a great experience and first class is an understatement.  Here is my suggestion of how to take full advantage of The Pinyon:

  1. Choose to dine from the bar.  The staff is very friendly and this allows you to have them participate in your meal.  They are very open to giving you ideas and tips from the menu.  They also are drink masters so to full lean into their talents the bar puts in the perfect position to enjoy.

guacamole Stroll down Pearl Street in downtown Boulder, Colorado and you'll find yourself surrounded by a collection of fine dining, fashion boutiques, coffee shops, and outdoor adventure stores. This morning we'd like to highlight one of the Big Red F restaurants being featured in our Facebook contest: Centro Latin Kitchen. Last weekend we had the pleasure of sampling a few of their Central and South American dishes...and boy, were we impressed. 

After placing our dinner order with a friendly and attentive waiter, we sipped a refreshing glass of their Spanish Alabrino white wine and nippled on a delectable avocado appetizer. 

The music was pumping, the conversation flowing. 20 minutes later we were feasting on two plates: Grilled mahi adorned with…

Firestone, Colorado, is now the time to buy?

 

Pricing is the always a lagging indicator in real estate.  Buyers buy emotionally and justify logically.  Firestone is beginning to show sign that it may be time to buy.  Price per a square foot over the past couple years have been decreasing in Firestone as represented by the graph below.  Since prices have declined for and extended time Sellers recognize that their home may have decreased in value and are at a point where they are open to offers.  We are at a point where Buyer and Seller expectations are in alignment.

The Old Louisville Inn is one of the oldest buildings still standing in historic Old Town Louisville.  This beautiful building has been the home of several different restaurant establishments over its 106 years life span. The building was originally built by E.J.

cabin_porn_400

Much to my wife's chagrin I have the desire to one day build and live in a 600 sq foot cabin.  When everyone else is walking around IKEA I am sitting in the 450 Square foot house thinking this would be just perfect.  Their is just something special about a small home.  Everything has a place and is within easy reach.  

It is not uncommon for Cyndy to come down at night and say what are you doing on the computer.  "You are looking at the site again!" I have to embarrassingly admit "yes."  For those of you who suffer from Small house addiction like me, be sure to visit www.freecabinporn.com.  It will truly stimulate the brain juices and allow for hours of blissful dreaming.
