It’s the most wonderful time of the year. The time when friends visit from near and afar. The time when days are merry and bright. The time when calorie counts are thrown out the snow-frosted window. Yes ladies, it’s time for holiday cheer. And what better way to imbibe than in the company of the city’s top mixologists? Local Table Tours, the popular culinary walking tour operator, has made its way from the Flatirons of Boulder to the streets of downtown Denver, and is offering an opportunity to get your festive groove on with the Mile High’s most well-known cocktail kings and queens. For $40, you’ll visit 3-4 swanky hotspots including the likes of Green Russell, TAG, Euclid Hall, Williams & Graham and Colt & Gray. Once there, expert mixologists will demonstrate how to make their favorite holiday concoctions, sampling their goods along the way. Boulderites can get in on the action, too, with stops at The Pinyon, West End and Salt among others. Each tour lasts around an hour and half, but your yuletide buzz is sure to have greater longevity.
