BOULDER - A Spice of Life Catering Services will manage a new events space in the future home of the Boulder History Museum at the northwest corner of Broadway and Pine Street in Boulder.

David Rubin, founder, chief executive and president of a Spice of Life, made the announcement Wednesday during the Boulder Chamber's Celebration of Leadership event.

The building is the former Masonic Lodge, which the Boulder History Museum bought in April last year.

The museum's executive director Nancy Geyer said the nonprofit organization has started a fundraising campaign to retire the debt on the purchase of the building and also pay for the renovation of the building to accommodate the museum.

"We've outgrown our current space," she said, which is at 1206 Euclid Ave. She said at the new museum there is more space to expand, add exhibits and hold events.

Geyer said the museum is partnering with Spice of Life to manage the rental of the space, until enough money is raised to begin renovation construction.

On Friday, Rubin said the space can accommodate a 300-person reception or a 200-person sit-down dinner. It is available for corporate events, meetings and weddings, and special rates will be offered to nonprofit organizations.

The catering company lost its events space next to the Flatiron Golf Course at 5706 Arapahoe Ave. because of flood damage in September. The company still maintains its kitchen at that location, and has its administrative offices at 5541 Central Ave.

Rubin said the new space is available to rent now, and he is planning a grand opening celebration April 24. To inquire about rental rates, call 303-443-4049.
