Bacaro says "Ciao" after fifteen years in Boulder -- and a last Mardi Gras party

After over fifteen years, Bacaro Venetian Taverna will close its doors for good late tonight. But the restaurant is going out with a bang: After a month-long farewell February celebration, the establishment is throwing a final Mardi Gras bash tonight.

Bacaro opened in 1998 under the ownership of Corrado Fasano, who recently sold the establishment to focus on other business ventures, including PastaVino. Chris Holston, the new owner of the space, will be opening another restaurant in Bacaro's place later this spring after renovations.

On this final evening, Bacaro will be offering 25 percent off all entrées and 40 percent off all bottles of wine. After 10 p.m., it will feature $3 well, $5 calls and $8 top-shelf drinks.
