It’s that time again. Flags, fireworks and the Cherry Creek Arts Festival. We all love browsing the streets and taking in the sights, but before too long the heat begins to remind us to hydrate. Who says hydration only comes in the form of water? Not me!
Let’s start with Argyll, one of the newer bars to the scene. Or rather one of the first gastropubs to the scene. Scotland isn’t known for their cuisine, but don’t let this prevent you from stopping by. Here fresh food and tasty drinks are the first priority. Argyll is sure to please with 3 dollar drafts, 4 buck margaritas, mimosas, mojitos and house wine from 3:30-6:30 Monday through Friday. This is a do not miss stop.
Hapa is an old favorite, but one that is always fun and tasty, not to mention easy on the wallet. The great patio is perfect for people watching as the crowds stroll through the festival. Monday through Saturday from 2:30 to 5:30 enjoy 2 sushi rolls for a mere $7, beer for $3 and sake for #3.50. Happy hour starts up again at 10 pm so stick around!
Have you been to the Milwaukee Street Tavern? You should. Monday through Friday (3:30-6:30) drink up for 1 dollar off beer, wine and wells. Special prices on appetizers like nachos, wings, fries and tater tots are available and free parking is available as well. Wait, what? Free parking in Cherry Creek? Cheers to that! Thanks for bring tater tots back Milwaukee Street. I haven’t had these since 2nd grade and they are as good as I remember.
If you have worked up a significant appetite after all the shopping and walking you can grab the best burger in town at Cherry Cricket. You can not skip this Denver landmark. How can you beat a Coors for $2 or an imported for $3? You can’t. And their food is a hit for crowds because they’ve got it all. So this is my favorite for cheap drinks and very tasty eats. They have a patio, so don’t worry, you don’t have to miss anything that is happening at the festival even when taking a break to rehydrate and refuel!
