Groovy New BC Business: Epic Artware

Epic Artware in Boulder City, Nevada

Retro and cool are the words that came screaming into my head when I popped into Epic Artware Recreations & Decor last week to get some photos for ya. It’s in that little complex on Nevada Way where Oro Jewelers and Hottest Dam Boutique are located…you know, the corner-ish of Nevada Hwy and Arizona. Cool […]

This Month’s Adoptable Pets…They’re Plane Crash Survivors

Adoptable Pets in Boulder City, Nevada

Wow – so here is a tale of survival we hope we don’t hear about often. Just less than a month ago (on June 28th, 2014), a small plane crashed ​in the Lake Mead National Recreation Area and sadly, neither of the two passengers survived. A little known fact is that they had their kittens […]

New BC Biz: Kaleidoscope Cache

Kaleidoscope Cache in Boulder City, NV

So…we have a new store in town – it’s called Kaleidoscope Cache! Owner Judy describes it as a “unique and color filled store of vintage and custom-made jewelry”. Yes, it is a store – but it has more of a “gallery” feel with a lot of wide open space and the works of local artists […]

Construction on Veterans Memorial Highway

Veterans Memorial Drive Construction in Boulder City, Nevada

Wondering what the construction is on Veterans’ Memorial Drive between Nevada Highway and Adams Blvd.?

I fear it’s not WILDLY riveting…but it’s an access road being built […]
