1950s ephemera decorate Gunther Toody's eight Colorado locations, lending an extra boost of Americana to plates of classic diner food such as burgers and meatloaf. The menu even draws its inspiration from American pop culture of yore, with Elvis fries, burgers named for Howdy Doody, and Big Bopper breakfasts served on platters of chantilly lace. Classic ice-cream treats including shakes, malteds, and black cows help lead each meal to a suitably sweet conclusion.

At Felt, the satisfying clack of billiard balls rings out, conjuring the spirit of Minnesota Fats as players take aim during games held at one of 23 tables. Whether practicing trick shots at a 7-foot Valley pool table, settling bets at a full-size 9-foot table from Gold Crown or Diamond, or pretending to understand how the British think at the lone snooker table, players fuel their competitive spirit with food and drink from the hall’s bar and kitchen. Half-pound deep-fried chimichangas and all-day breakfast spreads complement draft beers drawn from one of 10 taps or cocktails mixed using spirits from well-stocked racks of liquor. As players munch or sip, they also feed their minds with the highlights that flicker forth from the bar’s flat-screen TVs.
