People in the restaurant business have worked hard all summer, and now The Lobby, 2191 Arapahoe Street, is throwing its second annual "Roll in the Hay" at 10 p.m. tonight as a party for this city's hard-working service professionals. Guest bartenders Justin Lloyd and Allie Geppert of Star Bar will be pouring, and the event will feature a few free cocktails as well as snacks from the Lobby's "secret menu" created by its own chef Brandon Muncy as well as Jensen Cummings. And as an added bonus, prizes will be awarded for the restaurant that brings in the most guests from its service team. For more information, call 303-997-9911.
