Racines pops the cork for civil unions this month

At 12:01 on May 1, Colorado's Civil Unions Act took effect. And to commemorate the new law,Racines is offering same-sex couples celebrating their new legal status a complimentary 187 ml bottle of Korbel California Brut Champagne to share during lunch or dinner...or breakfast, if you're so inclined. And since the Webb building started doing civil ceremonies at 12:01, there could be some takers this morning.

The offer runs through May. Couples must let their server know that they're celebrating the new law in order to partake; call 303-595-0418 for more details.

And with any luck and a lot of love, these relationships will last as long as Racines: The restaurant will mark its thirtieth anniversary in December.
