While art galleries keep looking for loopholes in the state liquor laws that would allow them to serve alcohol during openings, one bar has already come up with a solution. The Highland Tavern, located at 3400 Navajo Street, is passing out Art Bucks good for a dollar off your tab at the bar. And at the Tavern -- where drink specials already include $3 premium drafts during the daily happy “hour” that lasts from 4-7 p.m. — that extra buck can go a long way.
The paintings of local artist Jim Rase are featured in the bar this week. For more information on art bucks, hours and drink specials, call 303-433-1990 or visit www.highlandtavern.com. – Aubrey Shoe
