Things to Do

Colt & Gray's patio opens Sunday with a pig roast and punch

Nestled between the two walking bridges that connect the Lower Highland neighborhood to LoDo, Colt & Gray's patio makes for good people-watching, the perfect place to sip a bubbly aperitif while cyclists, rollerbladers and families meander by.

That patio opens this Sunday with plenty of fanfare. To celebrate the onset of summer, the restaurant is roasting a suckling pig and a flock of chickens, served up with accoutrements, Avery beers, and cachaca punch.

Entrance to the party, which starts at 2:30 p.m. and ends at 9, costs $35 and includes food and four drinks. Call 303-447-1447 for reservations.
