Counting 51 years in business in the same location, Boulder Cork has perfected happy hour. “Guests love to snack on our house-made waffle potato chips with blue cheese and arugula while sipping one of our coin-style margaritas or a classic martini,” said Donna Karmeris, Boulder Cork general manager. She continued, “Our guests love celebrating special occasions with us, as well as popping in for a casual drink and lighter fare at Happy Hour. Having been a part of the Boulder community for over 50 years, our steak, seafood, service and consistency speak for themselves.” A large indoor space, two patios and a robust take-out curbside business facilitate social distancing. “We are so happy to be able to safely host our guests, both regulars and new friends,” Karmeris said. 3295 30th St., Boulder, 303.443.9505, bouldercork.com.
