April 18, 2014
We’ve already got you covered for Sunday with our Ultimate Guide to Easter Eats, but the fun and games this weekend go beyond egg hunts and chocolate baskets (never mind the two-day Official 420 Rally at Civic Center Park).
Friday Afternoon Club at Centro Latin Kitchen & Refreshment Palace
The modern Mexican hangout on the Pearl Street Mall launches an afternoon live-music series. Swing by from 3 to 5 PM today to drink margaritas to the reggae tunes of Policulture; the lineup will change weekly. 950 Pearl St., Boulder; 303-442-7771
Tickets are still going for this inaugural beer-and-food festival, which brings some 70 local breweries and chefs to the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum for a pairing extravaganza - or rather two, an afternoon session (11 AM-3 PM) and an evening session (4-8 PM). Prices are $55 for the designated-driver’s dining-only package, $95 for the all-inclusive option; learn more nd get tickets here. 7711 E. Academy Blvd.
Mozzarella-Making Class at The Truffle Table
Learn to make Italy’s most famous cheese in the comfort of this LoHi wine bar. Reservations are a must and include a beverage, recipes and mozzarella to take home (3-4 PM; $50 per person). 2556 15th St.; 303-455-9463
Smokedown Porch Party at Central Bistro & Bar
From 2 to 7 PM, this LoHi favorite invites you to its second annual patio picnic and pig roast, complete with all-you-can-eat smoked meat and sides ($25 per person), $4.20 drink deals and live music. 1691 Central St.; 303-477-4582
4/20 Celebration at Bruxie Gourmet Waffle Sandwiches
The SoCal-based transplant aims to appease smokin’ locals with a four-for-$20 deal on its waffle sandwiches (pictured). Come on down at 4:20 pm and get your fill to the tunes of The Grateful Dead and Phish. 1000 S. Colorado Blvd.; 303-963-9045
Coloradical at Old Major
Old Major hosts the debut dinner for this year’s all-female crew of FIVE, a beverage-paired five-courser ranging from duck-egg toad in the hole to prosciutto-and-sage-wapped rabbit loin over smoked-ricotta gnocchi (6 PM; $75 per person. Get tickets here). 3316 Tejon St.; 720-420-0622
