Pasta Jay’s provided food for the Sleep Out For Homeless Youth event on November 15, 2012, when Boulder’s Attention Homes joined more than 40 community and business leaders to raise awareness of and build support for youth who are homeless. Sleep Out participants spent the night sleeping outside on the lawn between Attention Homes’ administrative office and the First United Methodist Church of Boulder, near 15th & Spruce in downtown Boulder.
By taking part in this event, participants glimpsed what life is like as a homeless youth by exposing themselves to weather elements and uncertainties that come from living on the streets. Unlike Attention Homes’ youth clients, however, event participants had the benefit of knowing the next morning they can return to safe and warm homes, their jobs and their families.
Participants were asked to each pledge to raise $1,000 from friends, family and colleagues through their own online fundraising page to support Attention Homes’ homeless and runaway youth services. The Sleep Out for Homeless Youth event has raised more than $45,000 for Attention Homes’ programming.

“I just got back from a 5 day epic adventure in Moab, Utah, riding my UTV on some of the most challenging and scenic trails in the country. Sponsored by Arctic Cat & organized by Jared Livingston and Lance Chournos, Rally On the Rocks , in its 3rd year, was the biggest and best yet. RoTR succeeded the very popular UTV Rally which I first wrote about in 2007 when the UTV industry was just beginning.
Friday night we were treated to a delicious catered meal provided by local favorite Pasta Jay’s. After the meal Jared & Lance presented all the trail guides with a special gift and honored last year’s guide of the year; Moab Cowboy. And like any top notch event they presented a donation to local land rights organizations Take Back Utah and the Sagebrush Coalition . They then topped off the evening with the crowd pleasing raffle. The vendors really went all out giving away thousands worth of product including Walker Evans Shocks, Discount Tire Wheel & Tire sets, and PRP Seats. A special raffle was also held to give away a Kymco mini quad which was won by a woman who just happened to have two little girls with her. The look on those two girls faces was priceless.”

Come check out Boulder’s new outside bar! Jay commissioned a new bar for the restaurant and it was installed this week. It’s such a nice place to sit and have a drink, enjoy sun setting over the Flatirons, enjoy some delicious food. Best of Boulder.
Back by popular demand, Paula Nelson and her band came back to Colorado for some shows.
Here, Paula interviews male models and porn stars, looking for a model for their new line of clothing. This one’s cute, I wonder if he got hired?
You didn’t think I was done talking about the Paula Nelson Band yet, did you? The band ended up their front range tour last Sunday, when the band played at Nissis, a club in Lafayette, Colorado, just east of Boulder. A cozy place, classy, with tables, good sound, good food, room to dance. We ate, we danced, we laughed, we drank, we ate some more and danced some more.
Everytime the band comes to town I invite friends who haven’t seen them play before (Paula Nelson virgins, we call them), and everytime by end of night they want to be informed about the band’s next trip to the Front Range. The Paula Nelson Band fanclub in Colorado continues to grow! We all can’t wait until they come back.
more fans, more photos
The band opened the first of two sold out shows in Boulder tonight, with ‘Truckin’. Last song: Ripplie, with lots of goodies thrown in the middle, lots of Dead, some bluegrass, blues, even an Everly Brothers tune.
