    We are looking forward to visiting Boulder this upcoming weekend. Please let me know where the best place nearby the stadium to take in great food and drinks (obviously opponent welcomed). I really think it should be a great game, we are a well balanced and confident team, but definitely respect going up against a traditional FBS program and CU looked really good last night against CSU!

    The Sink is a must, hit the Dark Horse for some very good burgers and a great atmosphere.

    The Sink has good gameday food and drinks and is a short walk to the stadium. It's classic Boulder and a must visit.

    The Millennium Harvest House Hotel is also a large outdoor venue to take in the pre-game.

    If you are looking for something non-football related while you are here, and want something a little more fancy at a reasonable price, I would recommend Brasserie TenTen. It serves old-school French meals at a very reasonable price, and is very close to the Pearl Street Mall. They also do a pretty good lunch, but their dinner menu is much better.

    It is a night game, you have the time to hit the mountains... I recommend Rocky Mountain National Park and Trail Ridge Road

    Maybe climb Longs Peak in the morning and come down the hill for the game later that evening...

    And probably the best place to stay if you're coming in for a game. Stadium's an easy walk and even Pearl Street is walkable if you use the creek path.

    Other great options are St. J & Boulderado in the downtown, but you'll pay for them.

    I've never really looked at the B&B options in Boulder, but there are several scattered around the downtown that look to be ok.

    Sounds like good choices- thanks all for the response! We will likely check out Pearl Street early Saturday, then Millennium and, or The Sink before the game!

    It was ranked 19th in the nation but as previously reported there were 18 lies on that list. go to the Sink. Experience The Hill (area where the sink is) on game day.

    St. Julian is the best hotel in town with a great spa for DE mom if she's making the trip. Bolderaado has more history and the Harvest House is closer but's a dump.

    And Robert Redford waited tables there. I never tipped him much.
