One of the best things about Downtown Boulder is all of the different activities happening at any given day that appeal to a wide variety of tastes and interests. This Saturday and Sunday thousands of individuals with active and healthy lifestyles will head to the Pearl Street Mall for the Dick's Sporting Goods BolderBOULDER SportsExhibit. The two day event leads up to the 31st annual BolderBOULDER 10K road race happening on Memorial Day. The SportEXHIBIT is the only place participants can pick-up a packet or register over the weekend prior to Monday’s race.
Meanwhile, a local Downtown Boulder cupcake bakery will be hosting a not-to-be-missed event of their own. On Saturday (May 23) at 1 p.m., the World League of Competitive Eating is teaming up with Tee & Cakes (1932 14th St.) for the first ever CUPCAKE CRAM! World Champion Dale "Mouth of the South" Boone will take on four other local competitors in a quest to cram as many cupcakes down their mouths as possible in 10 minutes! Prizes range from a dozen cupcakes a month for a year to an enthusiastic high five!
Tee & Cakes is located along Downtown Boulder's Sweet Street (14th Street between Pearl and Walnut streets) nestled between Belvedere Belgian Chocolate Shop and Cefiore Italian Frozen Yogurt. Run by pastry chef Kim Boos and graphic designer Brian Wood, Tee & Cakes is a cupcake bakery, wedding and custom cake shop, coffee & espresso stop and retail apparel store. Cupcakes are baked fresh six days a week (closed Sundays). Although the cupcake menu changes daily, custom orders are always available. This delectable cupcake eatery received some excellent press coverage in January when CBS4 News ran a feature highlighting Tee and Cakes' wildly popular Chocolate Bacon Cupcake (available Saturdays and Mondays as well as by custom order)!
Whether you are an avid runner, sports enthusiast, cupcake lover or fan of competitive eating, Downtown Boulder is the place to be this holiday weekend!
