Every Restaurant and Bar Opening and Closing This Week

This was a good week to beat the heat, with new ice cream shops and bars popping up around town. Washington Park residents got in their licks at the second iteration of Frozen Matter, while folks are lining up today for a look inside the new Little Man Ice Cream Factory, which makes Willy Wonka look like a candy ass.
If you find liquor quicker, Boulder's first cider house debuted with the apt name BOCO Cider. And if you need something a little stiffer, the new Alamo Drafthouse Westminster has its own cocktail lounge, called Pandora's Box.

Newer is not necessarily better. We celebrate the city's storied eateries, too — like Chef Zorba's Authentic Greek Cuisine, which just turned forty earlier this year. Or Ogden Street South, which still draws karaoke singers after nearly 35 years in business. And you won't find many craft breweries in the U.S. as old as Great Divide, which celebrated its 25th anniversary last month.

But if you feel the allure of the shiny and new, we've got just what you need. Check out our June roundup of new restaurants and bars for the month (along with those that closed).
