Locally owned Lucky’s Market has announced plans to open a bakehouse and creamery adjacent to its store, adding another element to a shopping center that already features the natural grocer and Lucky’s Café, a breakfast and lunch joint.
Beginning in October, Lucky’s bakehouse and creamery will serve all natural ice cream and will feature cakes and pastries created by Chef Jen Bush. It is scheduled to be open seven days a week.
Lucky’s Market, Café and the anticipated bakehouse and creamery are located at 3990 Broadway.
REVERSAL OF FORTUNE FOR OLD BUILDING
Speaking of lucky, the old Jose Muldoon’s location at 1600 38th St. is currently under renovation, soon to be resurrected as Fate Brewing Company.
This fall, the 7,000-square-foot space will be home to a full-service bar and restaurant, as well as a full-production brewery. In addition to indoor seating for more than 200 guests, Fate will feature five core beers and specialty releases. Echoing the sentiment of so many Colorado craft brewers before him, Fate founder Mike Lawinski says the bar will honor other members of the craft industry by dedicating some of the 30 beer taps to other great-tasting local beers.
Lawinski promises a memorable experience for those who come into the restaurant, and has plans to distribute Fate brew to liquor stores and bars throughout Colorado. Look up fatebrewingcompany.com for more information.
WILL WORK FOR BEER
If Avery keeps up this pace, tap room patrons may start volunteering to stick around and help out with chores.
The local brewery was named as one of Outside Magazine’s “Best Places to Work” in the September issue of the publication, which recently hit the newsstands. Celebrating innovative companies with an adherence to a healthy work/life balance, the list placed Avery at No. 49 out of 100.
In citing Avery’s awesome benefits, a communal atmosphere and a weekly case of beer for each member of the production team, the “Best Places to Work” list may set off pangs of jealousy for some. Wash them away with some great craft brew at 5763 Arapahoe Ave.
A BATTLE WITH MEN USING SHARP KNIVES
In the words of local food lovers, “Allez Cuisine!” On Sept. 13, the Farmer Cultivation Center will host the FlatIron Chef Local Food Cookoff at the Spice of Life Event Center at the Flatirons Golf Course. In addition to a six-course farm-to-table dinner featuring local wine and beer, the fundraiser will showcase local chefs in a cooking competition. Jaime Martinez from Aji Latin American Restaurant, Ryan “Ko” Cunningham from Rollin Greens and Kyle Mendenhall of The Kitchen will square off to create a meal from a basket of local ingredients in only 45 minutes.
Tickets to the event are $75, and can be purchased at www.everybody-eats.org. Proceeds from the event go to the Farmer Cultivation Center, which goes to help train new generations of farmers on planning and managing techniques.
GERRY RAFFERTY WANTS TO KNOW WHERE YOU’VE BEEN
At Baker Street Pub & Grill, you don’t need an excuse to party, but they are throwing one anyway.
After Labor Day, the month of September can get a little monotonous. Yet some clever lad or lass figured out the 15th is six months until St. Paddy’s Day, so what better way to celebrate than a Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day celebration at Baker Street?
All locations, including the one at 1729 28th St. in Boulder, will be featuring live music, prize giveaways and luck o’ the Irish toasts. Happy hour specials will run until 9 p.m., and of course green beer will be served.
