Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of pub fare and drinks at Reiver's Bar and Grill on Gaylord Street.
From its people-watchable front patio to the misted summer sanctuary of its hidden back patio, Reiver's Bar and Grill keeps stomach-tantrums to a minimum with a menu that mingles traditional pub fare with eclectic palate pleasers. Laid-back locals take in the athletic action on 10 flat-screen TVs while noshing on deliciously deep-fried mac 'n' cheese wedges ($7.95) or the Colorado shepherd's pie conjured out of lean ground beef and a bevy of corn, carrots, and wooden shepherd's crooks ($11.95). The award-winning Reiver's chicken-fried sirloin steak—pounded thin with prosciutto, rubbed with horseradish, and breaded in saltines ($12.95)—has a natural chemistry with any of the 13 beers on tap. Stop by to watch the bowl games or put a lifetime of accumulated useless knowledge about hatchback hoopties and carousel cranes to good use at the Tuesday Trivia Face-Off.
