The Corner– Boulder, Colorado
Hey guys!! This last weekend I had fall break, which means no class Monday or Tuesday! Which also means that I got to visit my friend Miles Kluth at Boulder for the weekend!! I ate at a ton of great places this trip, including Rincon, Deli Zone, Blackjack Pizza, and The Sink! Those places were great, but the blog this week takes place at the equally amazing corner restaurant; The Corner!! Located on 13th Street and College Ave, this place is in prime location for busy college kids who need a place to grab a bite! Read more for all the juicy details!!
Here I am standing on the corner of The Corner! I wonder how they came up with the name?
Here’s the inside! The clean and modern design works well with it’s aesthetic. I’m a big fan of natural lighting, and all these windows allow for plenty of that!
Here I am ordering myself a cheeseburger!! The waitress was very nice and the customer service was minimal but pleasing.
Sorry it’s a little hard to read but here is the menu! Food selection mostly consists of sandwiches and salads, but there are still plenty of other choices! The prices definitely aren’t cheap, but still reasonable. I would classify this as a “fine dining casual grub at a modest price”.
Here is Miles sitting out our outdoor table! It was too nice of a day to sit inside!
I mean, look at this! 77 and sunny! It feels like SoCal!!
They use something called a “PagerTec”, which basically tells us when our food is ready! So high-tech.
DING DING DING! The alarm is off and the food is served! I got a cheeseburger with a salad.
Here I am getting super hyped up to take my first bite! I was super hungry!
And we’re done! Overall I was very pleased with the meal. The workers were friendly, we got served quickly, and the food tasted great! Like I said earlier the price wasn’t too bad (I think like $12.50 for my burger and salad?) They had some 90s grunge music playing in the background, which I enjoyed as I sat outside taking in the nice sunlight. The location is great as well! Overall I give it a 9/10! I hope you enjoyed this blog, I’ll see you all next time!!
Vieira da Silva was born in Lisbon, Portugal on June 13th 1908. She took a very devoted interest in drawing at a young age. By the age of eleven she had started her studies at the Academia de Belas-Artes. Silva was quickly picked out due to her obvious superior talents and taken to study beyond the boundaries of the academic system with the Portuguese masters of the time. Among these masters included the painter Fernand Léger, the sculpture Antoine Bourdelle, and engraver Stanley Hayter.
In 1928, Silva was prompted to move to Paris in order to further study sculpture. Once in Paris however, this move triggered something in Silva to pursue painting over sculpture. By the time 1930 came around she was already exhibiting her paintings around the city. She was an instant hit because her thick complexly layered paintings were unplaceable for that time. In her work she dealt with the nuances of developing space and then destroying said space, as well as the existence of time.
At the outbreak of World War II, Silva and her husband Arpád moved to Brazil. There they stayed until 1947, all the while staying busy creating paintings upon paintings and exhibiting them throughout Brazil. Together they returned to Paris in 1947. Silva continued to be a relevant figure in the world of painting up until her death in 1992.
