Its September, that rare and glorious time when seasons merge and you get best of summers weather along with the beginning of falls greatest attraction: football. Finally, your excuse to drink to excess on Mondays has returned. At Lola, Football With Spice mixes Monday Night Football with tequila and sangría. The combination is sure to liven up your Mondays if not your Tuesday mornings.
The weekly parties are held in Belola, in Lolas basement, which is a perfect game-watching spot, complete with comfy leather couches facing the big screen. Drink specials include $35 mini-kegs of Heineken, $35 pitchers of Lolas signature make-you-shudder-theyre-so-strong coin-style margaritas, and $16 pitchers of Sangría Rojo. (Sorry, but no ordering your own mini-keg; theres a three-person minimum on these deals.) And Lolas tasty food specials will help keep you sober; they include $7 chilaquiles or banana leaf-wrapped tamales your choice of shrimp, chicken, chorizo or veggie served with napa cabbage, pico de gallo, red or green chile, queso cotija, charred chiles and crumbled egg. Not your traditional football food, thank goodness!
To encourage you to throw down, every $25 you spend puts your name in a drawing to win a Super Bowl party at Belola, with tacos and Modelo cans for twenty people. You must be present to claim your prize, so plan on staying late. And if you need to get out of the basement and into that fresh summer air, relax on Lolas beautiful outdoor patio. The specials start at 5 p.m. at 1575 Boulder Street; call 720-570-8686 or visit www.loladenver.com.
