Comedians vie for the title of "Worst Person" in the R-rated game show Comics Against Civility, but that doesn't mean the audience is there to judge. In fact, audience members are just as guilty as the comics, since they're the ones who come up with the show's questions?questions that voyage into the embarrassing, the obscene, and the just-plain-wrong. The comedians then draw on their own self-made card decks to answer these questions in the worst, and funniest, way possible. Audience members whose questions are selected for the show approach the stage to claim similarly adult-themed prizes.
Whether they're unwinding from shopping in the Highlands art district, grabbing a bite before seeing a show, or just enjoying a night out with friends, groups flock to Sushi Hai for its fresh sushi and funky atmosphere. Local art flows through this popular Highlands stop, which has been a neighborhood staple for more than a decade. Along with nigiri and sashimi, menu features a vast array of rolls, including a veggie option filled with cucumber, pickled gourd, and sprouts. But chefs also splice together meaty entrees, such as the Hai pork chop served with smoked applewood bacon and savory bread pudding. For a more authentic experience, guests can visit one of the restaurant's three private Tatami rooms, where they abide by the traditional Japanese custom of sitting on the floor and resisting the urge to play Duck, Duck, Goose as full-grown adults.
Two private Tatami rooms are also located downstairs at the Hai Bar, a 3,000-square-foot martini lounge where patrons can either order standalone drinks or pair them with plates of sushi amid music, flat-screen TVs, and lounge seating.
Pizza Public’s dining area takes on two different looks during any given business day: it’s a family-oriented "craft" pizzeria by day and turns into a full lounge and bar at night. Amid soft lights and flat-screen TVs, daytime diners and families nibble on house pizzas fresh from the kitchen that can be decked out in traditional pepperoni or more daring toppings such as goat cheese or mango. When the sun goes down, the eatery’s bar comes to life as patrons sip on cocktails or a large selection of Colorado craft beers. The full menu is available all day, with gluten-free options for all pizzas and a tapas list that includes bruschetta and the eatery’s inventive prosciutto puffers.
