"Playful Eats. Serious Drinks" at The Lobby's fourth anniversary tonight

The Lobby is getting a new look in celebration of its fourth birthday -- and the "Playful Eats. Serious Drinks" party could last all night. Take a trip down memory lane with the staff at this Ballpark neighborhood spot as they celebrate the restaurant's start through its current, successful incarnation.

The Lobby occupies a building that got its start over a century ago as the Hotel Paris, and held a number of restaurants over the last three decades, starting with La Coupole. It became the Lobby four years ago, and new owners took over in 2012. Operating partners Christian and Meg Batizy upped the emphasis on fresh, local food. Various twists on classic breakfast are served all day; there are also specialty cocktails to accompany the comfort-food menu.

In honor of this fourth anniversary, executive Chef Brandon Muncy is creating a "secret menu" that will eventually be available to those who are hip, slick and cool -- obviously, anyone who attends the party tonight. And goodie bags will be given away, too, to loyal members of the restaurant industry.

There will be free passed appetizers from 7 to 8 p.m. tonight, as well as live entertainment. For more information, call the restaurant at 303-997-9911.
