2. Bart & Yeti's 551 E Lionshead Cir, Vail, CO

Their website states that they are open "every day from 11 a.m. 'til whenever", which should be a good indicator of how laid-back this almost 40yr-old pub is.

6. Red Lion 304 Bridge St, Vail, CO 81657

This divey bar -- which serves excellent, extremely generously portioned grub and features live bands and DJs -- demonstrates that oldies are goodies, since it's been around since 1962.

7. The George 292 E Meadow Dr, Vail, CO 81657 (Vail)

The George has $3 beers, $5 you-call-its, and a surf 'n turf that will leave you plenty of scratch for more $3 beers and $5 you-call-its. That's just plain thoughtful.
