Denver's Ritz-Carlton is puttin' on a happy hour!

It was just a matter of time before the Ritz-Carlton, Denver's swankiest slumbering pad at 1881 Curtis Street, realized that you're only as good as your happy hour, which has never been one of the Ritz's gazillion amenities - until now, anyway. Now, if you're a guest at the hotel, a guy wandering the street, a food writer looking for lubrication or just a nice girl looking for a rich tourist, you can partake in happiness at the Ritz, which has just rolled out a happy hour every Thursday and Friday, from 5 to 8 p.m., on the hotel's swanky outdoor plaza.

The prices are still a bit palatial if you're scratching for happy hours that don't require much more than your chair change, but with $5 wines, $4 imported and specialty beers and $3 domestic beers, it's a good start. And there's food specials, too: Chips and guacamole go for $3.50; mini bacon cheeseburgers, $2; chicken wings, $8; and the decidedly un-Ritz-Carlton-like jalapeno poppers, $8. For more info, call 303-312-3800.
