Brown Barrel Tavern to close 17 Sept.

an “inventory reduction sale” is a bit unexpected at a grungy tavern, but according to a man who emerged from this door that’s exactly what’s happening at the venerable Brown Barrel, which predates almost all the other bars on Broadway; the bar has been sold and will close on 17 September, he said, and that means all the unopened bottles must be sold; you have a week left to load up on $1 bottles of schnapps

no word yet on what will follow at this location …

Sputnik Denver: Music + Bar + Restaunt = Happy Customers

Sputnik is a mix of three things: a bar, a restaurant, and a music venue. Amazingly, it does a good job of mixing the three things into one relatively small location.

Delicious Dinner at Sputnik

We had three delicious parts to our dinner:

  • Arépes Ecuadorian corn cakes filled with cheese and topped with veggies.
  • Sweet potato fries Which come with the choice of sauces, we got three: chimichurri, especial sauce, and banana-ketchup sauce. The banana-ketchup sauce was kind of like baby food but also amazingly good (in a weird way).
