La Loma
2527 West 26th Avenue
303-433-8300

La Loma, which won't move downtown until next month, is throwing one of its traditional Broncos tailgate parties starting at 4 p.m. The bash includes $8 Don Julio margaritas, $5 draft beers and $3 burritos, as well as a DJ, cornhole and giant Jenga. A shuttle will run to the game every twenty minutes. For more information, call La Loma at 303-433-8300.   

Lou's Food Bar
1851 West 38th Avenue
303-458-0336

Lou's is kicking off a season of football pint nights with a special Broncos Punch in a pint glass for $4 during the game. The restaurant will be offering two Tailgate to Go deals every Thursday and Sunday during the NFL season: a bucket of twenty chicken tenders (naked, medium or hot) or a twelve-piece bucket of Lou’s fried chicken legs, thighs and breasts, both of which come with 1.5 pounds of  macaroni and cheese and 1.5 pounds of coleslaw. Either option feeds six people for $45 and must be ordered 48 hours in advance — which means you'll want to eat at Lou's (and enjoy that punch) during the opener, but you can still get grub to go for Sunday's game.

The Marina at Cherry Creek
4800 South Dayton Street, Greenwood Village
303-779-6144

Take the plunge! The revived Marina at Cherry Creek will be showing the game on several big screens. Head over early for drink specials starting at 4 p.m., and stay to grab some grub and cheer on the Broncos. 

The Monkey Barrel
4401 Tejon Street
720-638-3655

The Broncos' home opener runs parallel with opening night for the new Monkey Barrel, which moved from its former home on Platte Street to the Sunnyside neighborhood. The kitchen will be serving Carbone's sandwiches, and the bar will be pouring a lemon-lime gose from South Carolina's Westbrook Brewing Company to go head-to-head with nineteen Colorado craft beers. Come welcome the Monkey Barrel to the area and crush a few beers and sandwiches while the Broncos crush the Panthers.
