Today we celebrate this giant, multi-colored marble on which we're all hurtling around space. It's Earth Day, which translates into some delicious, eco-friendly deals.
For Earth Day, Tamayo will be serving up special, all-organic tequila flights that let you sample a blanco, reposado and anajo for $24; included in the flight are tequilas from Uno Dos Tres, Tequila Tierras and Dolce Vida. For more information, call 720-946-1433.
The 6th Alley Bar and Grill at A-Basin will be holding dinner and a movie for Earth Day today, starting at 6 p.m.. The bar will be screening several movies about water conservation and Arapahoe Basin VP/COO Alan Henceroth, and Snowriders International’s Phil Huffeldt will be speaking about water usage and conservation. Tickets are $25 and sales will benefit Snowriders International. For more information, visit arapahoebasin.com.
Planet Sub is celebrating the holiday today by teaming up with Trees for the Future, and trading sandwiches for trees. For every sandwich the sub shop sells today, it will plant a tree. Last year the shop planted 8,149; this year's goal is 15,000. For more information, visit planetsub.com.
