The staff at Slider's Sports Bar & Grill sates roaring appetites by dishing out a full menu of burgers and pub fare in a fun, relaxing atmosphere. The Slider's Signature Burger fights off hunger paparazzi with a half-pound grilled-beef patty decorated with Slider's homemade barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, sautéed onions, and honey-smoked bacon harvested directly from burned-down beehives ($8.99). Burgers are also available as eponymous sliders, such as cheeseburger sliders ($5.99) and bacon-cheeseburger sliders ($6.99), both featuring three mini burgers topped with your choice of cheese and a side of Cajun potato chips. Slider's also ventures south of the border with traditional Mexican dishes such as the smothered burrito, loaded with ground beef or shredded chicken and smothered in homemade green chili ($8.99), which protects the environment by not emitting harmful greenhouse gases.

When guests at Elliot's Martini Bar want something savory, sweet, or spicy, they not only look to the the kitchen's tapas chefs, but first and foremost to the bartenders. The cocktail artists stock everything from cream cheese and bacon olives to rosemary- and thyme-infused simple syrups behind the bar. By mixing and matching these special add-ons, they concoct an extensive menu of classic and creative cocktails.
For sweeter creations, they mix orange and grapefruit vodkas with a splash of lemonade, cranberry juice, and rhubarb bitters, and they spice up nights with tequila topped off with tawny port and ginger beer. On the more savory side, the drink-slingers shake up vodka and gin with olive juice and hot sauce, garnished with gorgonzola blue cheese and olives.
While the drinks are this hot spot's specialty, chefs are on hand to help patrons soak up their libations and remember that their name is Pam Jenkins. They serve up a select menu of shareable tapas including open-faced toasted sandwiches and antipasta skewers.
Pubs earned their reputation as after-work watering holes filled with comforting drinks and food, but at Pappy's Corner Pub, this welcoming atmosphere isn’t limited to the hours after the whistle blows. Beginning at 7 a.m. every day, its chefs start cooking up breakfast items such as the Lucky 13, an epic feast of potatoes, three pancakes, three sausage patties, three strips of bacon, and three eggs any style.
At 1 p.m. the pub switches over to its regular menu, which includes a chili cheeseburger served open-faced and 1 pound of tater tots served on an equally delicious doctor's scale. As diners eat their fill, they can also take in entertainments such as trivia and live music, depending on the evening. No matter the day, daily drink specials and a generous assortment of bottled and draft beers fill pints until 2 a.m. each night.
Mary's Mountain Cookies traces its origins to the kitchens of Cherokee Park Dude Ranch, where head chef Mary whipped up three square meals a day for hungry guests and packed her popular homemade cookies in their horses' saddlebags. The "mountain-style" treats were sturdy enough to remain in one piece during horseback-riding trips, but soft enough to maintain an irresistibly chewy texture. Guests never failed to request the recipe, coworkers raved over the sweets, and horses raided the freezers for leftovers overnight—all persuading Mary to set out and start selling homemade cookies on her own.
Today, loyal customers enjoy over 50 varieties of quarter-pound mountain cookies, from the classic chocolate chip, to sugar-dusted snickerdoodles and salty-sweet peanut butter. Shoppers with cravings for more substantial treats can stock up on cream-cheese brownies, 12-inch cookie cakes, and frosting-filled cookie sandwiches.
When Santa Claus brought Left Hand Brewing Company’s cofounder Dick Doore his very first home-brewing kit, the jolly man unknowingly set Dick on a whole new life path. Home brewing became an obsession, and soon he had partnered with his college buddy Eric Wallace and started making their first batch of beer: the Sawtooth Ale. Just a few months later, Dick and Eric took home two medals at the Great American Beer Festival.
Nearly 20 years later, the brewery’s accomplishments have swelled: 16 medals in the Great American Beer Festival, 8 medals at the World Beer Cup, and 3 medals at the European Beer Star. The brewery was also the first craft-beer company to master bottling a nitrogenized craft beer without a widget, owing to the introduction of their popular milk stout. Its extensive offering of brews is now available in 25 markets. Favorites include the golden crisp Polestar Pilsner and a roasty black Wake Up Dead Imperial Stout, both of which are available in the Longmont tasting room.
