Being Boulder

Being Boulder

One of the great things about living in Boulder City is the sense of community and camaraderie shared by its residents. We know that there are special moments in everyone’s lives and now we want to help bring those moments to light. Starting next week we are introducing a new feature, Being Boulder, a place where residents can share photos and stories about what it’s like to live in Boulder City.

Each week on one of our Community pages you will find photos and/or stories submitted by local residents, as well as what will be featured the coming week.

Next week, for our July 9 issue, we are asking you to share photos of your Fourth of July celebrations. The following week, July 16, show us how you stay cool.

Please be sure to identify everyone in the picture, and include your name and a way to contact you (phone or email) in case we have questions.

As always, if you have suggestions about what you’d like to see featured as part of Being Boulder, just let us know.

Send your photos and ideas to news@bouldercityreview.com.

Don't miss the big stories. Like us on Facebook.

Let carnitas star in Cinco de Mayo dishes

Melt-in-your-mouth, flavorful and juicy with irresistible caramelized crunchy bits, this pork carnitas is brimming with classic flavors like Mexican oregano, cumin, chili powder and a surprising bright note of citrus. I’m so excited to share this divine recipe, just in time for Cinco de Mayo.

Quick meal strategies essential for busy people
