A Spike TV show (no, unfortunately not one about boobs or awesome deaths) has remade Larimer St's Zanzibar Billiards Bar & Grill into Solids & Stripes, a completely remodeled house of booze and felt, courtesy of Bar Rescue.
New lights make these the souped-up Civics of pool tables. The TV crew ditched two tables to create more room, and resurfaced the remaining ones, adding -- in addition to the lights -- new pockets (though you'll need deeper ones to play, as the formerly free game now costs $5 p/hour).
At the all-new beer wall, $8 buys you a key-like magnet that unlocks the ability to pour yourself two beers from one of four CO microbrew taps. No waiting for the bartender.
The menu also got a refresh, with new 'tails like a vodka/ lime juice/ jalapeno/ cucumber concoction called The Hustler, which you can eyeball in graphic, almost disgustingly vivid detail in this photo.
Sink The 8 Ball: honey syrup, Crown Royal Black, and bitters.
New apps dot the menu, including these bacon/ cheddar/ chive Solid Croquettes.
