Last weekend for rockabilly, brews and Mexican barbecue at Tambien

For proof that summer's scorch is coming to a screeching halt, all you have to do is look to Tambien, the Cherry Creek Mex in the city at 250 Steele Street that's been turning out rockabilly and ribs to the faithful every Sunday since April 26.

This was one of our favorite Sunday excuses to lap up the sunshine and pound Tecates on the patio, dance our booties off to some terrific fifties rockabilly and stuff ourselves like sumo wrestlers on chipotle barbecue spare ribs, barbacoa, carne asada, beer can chicken, watermelon, smoked Yucatan-style turkey legs and pickled eggs with chile amarillo. But on Sunday -- this Sunday -- it all comes to an end until next summer.

The final fun runs from 2 to 7 p.m. with live music from the Roy Kay Trio, DJ spins from Dogboy and Kursed, south-of-the-border beers and kick-ass 'cue from Sean Yontz, For more info, dial 303-333-1763.
