Where do I take 15 football fans to eat?
I am from Athens, GA (Go DAWGS!) and we will be heading out to Denver/Boulder for the Colorado/Georgia football game the beginning of October. We have leased a house above Idaho Springs and want to go out for one night to a restaurant in Denver or near Denver that can handle us, since it is closer than Boulder. This is a pretty boisterous group when we've had a few, so we can't do anything too nice. But, we all appreciate great food, local food, local beers and friendly folks. We have all kinds of tastes, but I wouldn't suggest Asian. Just won't happen! A lot of meat-eaters in the bunch as well. I lived in CO as a child and love the green chili with fresh tortillas.
Anyone have any suggestions for a bunch of hungry Bulldawgs from UGA?
Three places you might consider if the green chile fix isn't necessary are Ernie's Bar & Pizza, Lola, and LoHi SteakBar—all nice looking places with good food as well as being very lively/neighborhoody.
If the green chile fix is a must for this particular meal, you might also consider the more divey Brewery Bar II:
