Mechanical bulls innocently test bovine-balancing skills, until the day catastrophic hunger threatens the Earth and they transform into Optimus Prime Ribs. Shake up the night with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of drinks and rustic fare at Stampede in Aurora.
Stampede lures parched throats and cavernous appetites into a 35,000-square-foot restaurant and nightclub for chilled brews, dancing, and rustic eats. Every evening from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m., happy hour commences with an array of domestic beers, well drinks, and wine ($2 each), bolstering courage in the face of the mechanical bull or the beguiling steps of swing dancing on Thursdays and country dancing on Fridays. The sizable outdoor deck and pool tables collect cooling patrons, providing space to think up love sonnets for the damsels drinking for free on Wednesday nights.
Sporting meals as big as the Fonz's ego, Stampede's menu centers on the build-your-own half-pound burger, sculpted from a choice of three meats, four cheeses, and seven toppings ($5, add a domestic draft for $1 on Saturdays). Balcony seating offers an ideal location for the high-rise Grande nachos ($7.50), or a prime perch on which to oversee the dance floor and practice Phantom of the Opera routines.
