New Parking Pay Stations
Welcome to the new Parking Pay Stations in
downtown Boulder. We discovered a new pay station outside
of Rebecca's on Thursday morning, August 23.
Since it looked like it was here to stay, we named it Percy.
What the ...?!?!?!
Deanna bravely attempts to feed Percy, only
to find he is not yet conscious.
These new machines are getting phased in from now until mid-September.
When the pay stations are activated, the city will remove the old
parking meters. So until then, use the old meters. The City will
donate the first parking meter removed to the Boulder History Museum,
so enjoy our old meters while you still can.
When the pay stations are activated, the hourly meter rate will
increase to $1.25/hour, and you may pay with cash, credit card ($1
minimum) or tokens. You must display your receipt on the passenger
side dash of the vehicle. The enforced hours will be from 9am to
7pm at night, Monday through Saturday. Parking will continue to
be free in the downtown garages on Saturday and Sunday.
If you have time left on your receipt, you may take your remaining
time with you to another location within the city of Boulder parking
districts, as long as it does not exceed the maximum time allowed
on the block.
The pay stations communicate wirelessly with the Parking Department
via satellite, allowing administration by a central computer.

We received some beautiful yarrow, calendula and red clover from
Rose, of Wild Rose Herb Farm. Come in and enjoy some of these fantastic
We just received a shipment of reishi mushrooms. Reishi is a traditional
Chinese remedy that works as a deep immune tonic. It has been studied
for cancer therapies and for people undergoing chemotherapy and
radiation. It can also be used as an immune tonic to prepare your
body for the change of seasons.
It is prepared by making a decoction in a crock pot. Fill the crock
pot with water and add a whole or crumbled reishi mushroom. Simmer
on low for 24-48 to hours. The volume should reduce by half over
time. Use a cup per day until gone.
To make the decoction taste better, you can add basil or garlic
Closed: Labor Day
We will be closed on Monday, September 3 for Labor Day.
