The Shortlist: What To Do In Boulder: September 16-18

Happy Tuesday, Boulderites! The crisp chill of Fall is creeping up on us. It feels like just a week ago that we were floating the Creek. However, we’re a week out from the first day of Autumn, and the leaves are changing and the temperature is dropping. This just means it’s time for Fall festivities! Enjoy!

1. Mexican Independence Day at Centro

Centro Mexican Kitchen is known well for it’s happy hour deals on their veranda. This Friday they will be celebrating Mexican Independence day with $25 pitchers of margaritas or palomas, and $15 buckets of Coronas. Fall will be making it’s way on to Centro’s menu on Friday with $4 heirloom pumpkin tamales. Come have a bite and a drink in the Friday evening sunshine to kick off your weekend.

2. Boulder Fall Fest

All weekend long the Pearl Street Mall will be celebrating the arrival of Fall during Boulder’s Fall Fest. The Fall Fest is a beloved annual event that rings in the change of season.
