Beastly Hot: A Second Helping of Westword Food & Drink, June 6-10

The hot weather finally rolled into town, which means we're all looking for great places to cool down with a tall drink and some seasonal bites. Chris Utterback dipped into his wellspring of happy-hour knowledge to deliver the ten best happy hour hangouts for enjoying summer with cheap eats and drinks.

Gretchen Kurtz tracked down busy chef Paul Reilly of Beast + Bottle for a conversation about his upcoming new restaurant, Coperta, which will be the second restaurant operated by the chef and his sister, Aileen. Beast + Bottle, no one-trick piggy, also made Linnea Covington's list of the ten best gluten-free menus in Denver.
