Weekend Planner: Cheeseburgers, Crawdads and Adult DaycareBy Ruth Tobias
April 25, 2014
BBQ Lunch at Gather
From 12 PM to 2 PM, the Golden Triangle cafe is hosting its first summer barbecue, so come on out for cheeseburgers with all the fixings and plenty of suds to wash ’em down ($6). 1061 Delaware St.; 303-832-4172
Adult Daycare at The Lobby
Heroes Like Us founder Jensen Cummings joins chef Brandon Muncy at this Ballpark hangout (pictured), where each of three courses will be complemented by a beer from River North Brewing and an Infinite Monkey Theorem wine. Guests get to vote for the better pairing - and ultimately the King of RiNo - via bottlecap-or-cork “ballots” (6:30 PM; $65 to benefit Slow Food’s school-garden program. Click here for the menu and tickets). 2191 Arapahoe St.; 303-997-9911
Crawfish Boil at Denver Beer Co.
Last we checked, the tickets for this Highland tap room’s third annual mud-bug shindig were nearly sold out, so call ASAP if you want to join in the downhome festivites (1-5 PM; $30). 1695 Platte St.; 303-433-2739
Western Daughters Pork Breakdown at The Truffle Table
The owners of LoHi artisan meat market Western Daughters head to this nearby wine bar to demonstrate their expertise in pig butchery. Guests will receive wine, recipes and optional meat to take home (3-4 PM; $75 per person without pork, $100 with. Advance reservations required). 2556 15th St.; 303-455-9463
Rufus Corvus Release at Avery Brewing Co.
At 1 PM, the beloved Boulder brewery is breaking out the 19th beer in its barrel-aged series. Each 12-ounce bottle is going for $12 on a cash-only basis, so bring plenty of it (limit 12 bottles per person). If you’re itching for an excuse to secure your place in line, Avery’s tap room serves brunch from 9 AM to 11:30 AM. 5763 Arapahoe Ave., Boulder; 303-440-4324
