It’s been quite the transition, but we’re finally all here in our new favorite place that we can officially call home – Boulder, Colorado.
After long days and nights of planning, working remotely and drinking a lot of coffee… and beer… okay, okay liquor on some nights too – we have all finally arrived in our new home – Boulder, Colorado. We couldn’t be more excited to be here, continually growing and expanding Lems as a company in such a wondrous place.
Boulder has a booming population of 97k and is still continuing to grow at a rapid rate. The city of Boulder has so many unique things to offer, including great places to eat, shopping on the Pearl Street Mall, close to 30 breweries in a fifteen-mile radius of the city and the most incredible views of the foothills no matter what part of town you’re in. I know that’s something I’ll never get sick of!
Lems CEO, founder, and big man in charge, Andrew Rademacher, says that Boulder is without a doubt our new home.
“First, you have several hundred miles of mountain biking, running and snowshoeing trails less than a mile from downtown. Second, Boulder has a strong outdoor consumer market that significantly influences the rest of the country”, Rademacher says.
“Boulderites are gear junkies. Simple as that. If it hasn’t caught on yet in Boulder, then it may never well catch on at all.” Good news for our Lems, eh?
“It’s never a boring place, there’s always something to do even with the hourly-changing weather (never forget your puffer-jacket!). There’s always live music and some of America’s best skiing is less than 1.5 hours away. And of course with the new green laws, Boulderites are living each day in peace and love, ha!”
Steven Michael Francis Perna (the first) is excited to be in this crazy cool town with all the craft beer he could ever ask for.
“I am excited to be in Boulder because I love 80’s metal, geology, Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark, Chevy trucks, Italian Stallions, popping candy and Pepsi, Dwayne Johnson, games incorporating paper and scissors, Kid from Detroit, and lobsters that listen to the B-52’s. Why? Because Boulder rocks (badoomshhhh….) End of story….” And there you have it!
P.S. – Steve also already made his claim to fame in Boulder by dominating the Wing King Challenge at West End Tavern (50 wings in 17 minutes) – killed it!!
Gayle has us all beat with her one-year residency. Have any questions? Just want to chat? Call in and she’ll most likely be the one to answer. Do it, she’s originally from Scotland, which means you’ll love to hear her talk!
As for me, a couple months in and I honestly couldn’t be any happier to live in this beautiful place surrounded by the mountains. Coming from a small town in Ohio with a terrible professional football team, it’s pretty refreshing knowing that our Denver Broncos are headed to the Super Bowl. The active and healthy lifestyle out here is mind blowing and practically forces me to partake. I mean, I guess that’s not a bad thing! I sense some new hobbies about to arise. However, I still spend most weekends at the Bohemian Biergarten drinking liter beers and eating some killer German food. Despite the lack of country music and fashion, I really do love Boulder. Sorry Ohio, I don’t think I’m coming back any time soon.
As you can see, there’s only four of us – well, five. We can’t forget Bowie! All in all, we’re so excited for this amazing opportunity and so glad to be spreading the word about Lems here in Boulder. Hopefully all of you are just as anxious for what we have in store for you.
Sincerely… Forever Yours… Live Easy and Minimal,
The Lems Staff – Andrew, Steve, Audrey & Gayle
