Housed in a historic brick building, the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art challenges minds and peppers peepers with an ever-rotating roulette wheel of exhibits from local, national, and international artists. An individual membership affords artophiles unlimited entry for 12 months, or the approximate time it takes to have a baby. Peruse the industrial-ceilinged, white-walled galleries alone, with a friend capitalizing on the included guest entry pass (one per visit), or with the guidance of a wisdom-infused curator as part of invitation-only exhibitions. Members revel in additional benefits, such as discounts on museum programs and at the museum store, subscriptions to the events calendar and e-news.
Sun soaks the high-ceilinged interior of Fiori Flowers, which bustles with the vibrant colors and dulcet fragrances of a massive assembly of seasonal blossoms, scented candles, and fine chocolates. Brighten office spaces or reward victorious cage fighters with the Boulder Fizz bouquet, a trio of stunning roses escorted by an entourage of seasonal sprays in a recyclable case ($40). Hanging artwork presides beautifully over a massive array of modern and traditional arrangements, whose aromatic ranks include the Classic Fiori, a stunning collection of summer blooms, which may include fresh sunflowers, zinnias, lilies, irises, and more ($40). Daily deliveries and an enormous walk-in cooler keep the shop's floral ranks as vivacious as a Muppets convention. The shop offers delivery at an additional cost, which this Groupon does not cover.

At Boulder Furniture and Mattress, a yawn isn’t a sign of boredom but an indication of contentment as patrons hop between memory-foam mattresses nestled in sleek bed frames, and plush sofas filled with downy throw pillows. A host of Danish convertible sofas class up the evenings of overnight guests with their modern lines and innovative shapes, and child- and college-friendly bunk beds sport functional features such as desks, futons, and storage drawers. A broad selection of bedding caps off customers’ mattress choices, with bamboo sheets and organic-wool mattress toppers waiting to shrink owners’ carbon footprints down to ant size.
When brothers Joseph and Herb Guiry founded the paint store that bears their name, Denver was still an untamed frontier town, William McKinley was President, and the flag still had 45 stars and not a single cartoon dog. The year was 1899, and, in the hundred-plus years since, the store has remained a family tradition across four generations of shopkeepers. Today, the store’s seven locations carry paints for everything from houses to school projects, and supplement their stock with home decorations including lighting, wallpaper, and furniture.
