Absinthe House now open in Foundry’s old location

Abisnthe House sign in front of the old Foundry location…that’s pretty much the news. Last year in November, the Foundry, a Boulder landmark nightspot, closed its doors for good. Today, you can wine and dine in that very location again, under the sign of Absinthe House.

Well, not literally under the sign. The Foundry’s iconic marquee remains empty of letters. For now, a sandwich-board chalk sign will have to do.

It had its grand opening just last week, but it’s been operating since mid-August or thereabouts. According to the Daily Camera, its focus is on “audiophiles, …foodies, [and] the vino culture.” With a dance floor, live DJs, and 24 different absinthes, the array of sensory stimuli offered is promising. Westword describes the restaurant’s offerings in more detail.

Absinthe House is already on the Downtown Boulder website, so if you’ve got a Downtown Boulder gift card you can probably use it there.

And that’s the news, coming straight to you from the sidewalk of downtown Boulder. If you’ve already been, tell us what you think about the new Absinthe House in the comments below.

Prop Gay presents H2OMO benefit party at Boulder Reservoir

This Saturday, August 21 at noon, the Boulder Reservoir is the location of H2OMO, Prop Gay’s benefit party for the Boulder County AIDS Project (BCAP) and Boulder Pride.

There’ll be live music, DJs, drag performances, and lots of other entertainment. The beer garden opens at 1:00 PM for those 21 and up ($20 donation and show ID for open bar access). Outside the drinking area, the party is for all ages.

Prop Gay emphasizes that this is a community event. You don’t have to identify as LGBTQ to come–“Allies are encouraged to join in the fun!”

Contact Mathew Sommers by email (visit the H2OMO event announcement or the Prop Gay website for email address) if you’d like to volunteer, or if you or your business are interested in being sponsors.
