Mezcal is an authentic Mexican taqueria and cantina serving both award winning home-style Mexican food, fresh lime Margaritas and over 250 tequilas and Mezcals.
Mezcal’s warm décor, with Moroccan lamps and Mexican wrestling posters, embraces both traditional and popular elements of Mexican Culture.
Tequila tastings, special dinners and offbeat celebrations of holidays from North and South ofthe border ensure that the next party is just around the corner.
The Goosetown Tavern, opened in September 1998, is located at the south-west corner of Colfax and Adams in Denver’s Congress Park area, right across the street from the Bluebird Theater. The Goosetown Tavern is all about having fun. It features 12 beers on tap, a full bar, two pool tables and a delectable assortment of sandwiches, pizza, appetizers, soup and salads. Also, rotating artwork is a cornerstone to its mystique.
NEVER A FROWN IN THE GOOSETOWN!
Goosetown is named for a former bar of the same name in Golden, Colorado where German immigrants once communed. A German immigrant, Julius Shultz, originally built the Goosetown Tavern in 1873. Until its demise, the original Goosetown Tavern was the oldest continually licensed tavern in Colorado. It originally acquired its quirky moniker from the nickname of the community it served. The German immigrants who settled in the foothills around Golden brought with them their fondness for waterfowl and created many ponds and lakes to encourage migrating geese to stay in Golden. Their scheme worked and the district became known as Goosetown.
Upon demolition of the original bar in 1998 to make room for a parking lot, John Hickenlooper, founder of the Wynkoop Brewing Company, salvaged the front and back bars and booths in an effort to capture the essence of the original Goosetown Tavern and restored them to their present location.
the Atomic Cowboy has morphed from a late-night, post-concert fave into an all-day jack-of-all-trades spot. Two food purveyors inhabit the bar: From early in the morning into the afternoon, the Denver Biscuit Company cranks out biscuit sandwiches and platters for the local workforce; starting at lunch, Fat Sully's bakes greasy, huge pizza slices and pies for dine-in, takeout or delivery, and continues serving until the wee hours. As for the Cowboy itself, the cavernous joint comes fully stocked with a bi-level bar that features a daily happy hour (as well as daily specials), a trivia night, a few well-placed plasmas, pool tables and a slew of board games.
There aren't a lot of joints in Denver that have games. But the Atomic Cowboy is stocked with them. Lots of them. Chutes and Ladders. Candy Land. Monopoly. Taboo. Yahtzee. They're just a few reasons folks in groups seem to populate this spacious and lively Colfax bar. That, and the fact that they sport a decent selection of beers on tap, including local brews from Breckenridge Brewery and Great Divide. Oh, and it's a block west of the Bluebird Theater, which makes it an ideal spot for pre-show imbibing and even better after a gig, since Fat Sully's New York-style pizza, inside the Cowboy, serves up huge slices every day of the week until at least 1 a.m.
Epi_Gee's EVENT GATHERINGS "Outings"/"Bar-Hops"
Denver/Boulder/Front Range COLORADO.
BARS, VENUES, CONCERTS, EVENTS & GET TOGETHERS... this one is just for the adults.
Basically a bar-hop, except we will do more than just bars, and we will focus on one/two venue (s), club (s) or bar (s) per get together. Each meeting will be very different from the last, and I encourage EVERYONE to attend EACH EVENT.
In the course of a year we will explore a variety of music styles, concerts, social scenes and even non-music events that incorperate music. The meetings might take place in as diverse and extreme environments as concert venues, theaters, bowling alleys, warehouses, art galleries, strip clubs, pubs, gay bars, dance clubs, stretch limos, double decker buses and more...
Music styles will range from accoustical folk to death metal, hip-hop to be-bop, bluegrass to classical, country & western to goth... and all points in between.
The idea is to have fun, meet new people, and jump into new experiences with an open mind. Attendees should have a good attitude, and be very accepting of others cultures, styles and sexual orientations. Otherwise, don't attend.
Hope to see you all there !
