Since 2009, The Squeaky Bean has been paying its respects to iconic cultural figures with "Shrine cocktails," special drinks that are placed in a shrine with pictures of the recently departed. Now, with the passing of legend David Bowie, the restaurant is unveiling an entire cocktail menu to honor the cultural icon, and will launch it with a tribute evening tonight. Guests are encouraged to channel their inner Bowie and dress for the occasion, as they drink and celebrate the life and music of one of the all-time greatest. Drinks include the Space Oddity made with Pisco, Meyer lemon, mandorla and egg white; the Ziggy Stardust made with Mescal, Aperol, Cocchi Americano, dehydrated Campari "Stardust", and more. Tonight's celebration runs from 4 p.m. to close; the special cocktails will be available through the month (at least); for more information, contact the Squeaky Bean at 303-623-2665.
Park Burger RiNo is celebrating its one-year anniversary with a very beery party today at 6 p.m. Goose Island will be featured as a tap takeover, and Russian River’s Consecration & Supplication will also be making an appearance.
