If you're not quite in the holiday spirit this year, you can at least get into holiday spirits at the Miracle Bar, a festive Christmas-themed pop-up inside Avanti Food & Beverage at 3200 Pecos Street. Sip cocktails like the Run Run Rudolph, Santa's Bottom and the Yippie Ki Yay Mother Fucker (because Die Hard is the best Christmas movie ever made). Visit the installation through the end of 2018 at Avanti's second-floor indoor/outdoor bar and grab sugar cookies, themed snacks and even logoed collectible cocktail glasses.
Here's our complete list of all the restaurant and bar openings for the week of November 19-25, 2018:
Restaurants and Bars Closing This Week*
Babettes Artisan Bread (moving to Longmont), 3350 Brighton Boulevard
*Or earlier, but not previously reported.
Once restaurants have been open for at least three months, they're fair game for a restaurant review. Here's our restaurant critic Gretchen Kurtz's opinion of Q House, which opened at 3421 East Colfax Avenue in May.
