In the Best of Denver 2011, we named Common Grounds the Best Coffeehouse for Finding a Date, thanks to the constant crowd of young professionals who mingle there over cappuccinos. And because we're big proponents of ditching online dating and blind set-ups every now and then in favor of meeting people the old-fashioned way -- that is to say, face-to-face -- every Friday, we're bringing you a Denver spot that we think is particularly conducive to finding available members of the dating pool.
This weekend, it looks like we might finally get some relief from the rain -- so we think you should head to Boulder and check out Avery's tap room.
The brewery pours a good run of its beers in the tap room, including rare selections and one-offs. And thanks to that, it pulls a crowd of locals and tourists, beer geeks and casual drinkers, who like to post up on the patio or in the tap room itself. It's a good place to strike up an easy conversation and maybe score a number and a future date.
Plus, while you're there, you can pick up a ticket for the beer cocktail showcase at Star Bar on Sunday night, where you'll have a chance to sip shining examples of a hot mixology trend... while mingling with a crowd of eligible gastronomy-loving bachelors and bachelorettes.
