Landlocked Seafood Special: Mosey back to LoDo and enjoy our Readers’ Choice legendary happy hour at Jax with $3 oyster shooters (East Coast oyster, vodka, bloody Mary mix) and $5 chorizo gravy fries with cheddar cheese curds. Like poutine via Mexico. O, Canada! A few doors down on 17th St lies Southern Hospitality and, in their chilled out basement, they pour some rare-ass whiskies from their massive list of 100+.
Here Piggy, Piggy, Piggy, Piggy: Walk across the bridges into Highland and order Old Major's Nose to Tail plate, which has most of a hog on a single plate: confit rib, pork chop, crispy belly, city ham, and crispy ear, topped by guanciale vinaigrette and rhubarb jus. Old Major's sister resto Masterpiece Deli has plenty of meat to offer as well, and they're open 'til 8, so snag a mind-melting roast beef sammie with piquillo peppers and house-made horseradish sauce
