This weekend is special for all of you boxers and your ‘special someone’ who in most cases now involves more than just that one person, there now being little ones the result of previous Valentine’s Day encounters.
I previously advised I’d be making a recommendation for this Valentine’s Day weekend (whether Friday or Saturday evening) and my overwhelming favorite is The Berkshire, located at 7352 E. 29th Ave., in the Stapleton/Northfield area.
The Berkshire boasts a ‘kid friendly’ atmosphere with a fantastic reasonably priced menu (under $30 in most cases) catering primarily to us lovers of swine, me highly recommending the pork tenderloin with roasted cauliflower while the Rocky Mountain trout and grilled asparagus remain the wife's' favorite.
The weekend dinner hours are from 4-11PM and I’d strongly recommend a reservation, 303-321-4010.
If it’s a ‘one-on-one’ dinner you’d prefer, I’d say make that reservation at the Corner House Restaurant, 2240 Clay St. (in the Jefferson Park neighborhood) where their relaxed atmosphere and dress allow a comfortable and relaxed getaway.
My favorite is the chile-braised short ribs followed by the chocolate bread pudding dessert, you and that special someone then enjoying a cocktail the bartender has deemed appropriate (if you’re the adventurous type) with locally brewed beer favorites plentiful.
The Corner House Restaurant has just a few reservations available on Saturday evening, so you’d better hurry by either visiting their web-site or calling 720-287-1895.
If you prefer just staying home and cuddling in front of the television, there’s always ESPN2 Friday Night Fights where in the main event New Yorker Chris Algieri (18-0, 8 KO’s) takes on Maryland’s Emmanuel Taylor (17-1, 12 KO’s) in a scheduled for 10 rounds junior welter bout, or on Saturday televised via Fox Deportes you can catch Mexico’s Robinson Castellanos (19-9, 12 KO’s) taking on Nicuraguan Rene Alvarado (19-2, 13 KO’s) in a scheduled for 12 rounds WBC Silver featherweight title bout refereed by Denver’s own Stephen Blea.
I don’t have to tell you boxing lovebirds the term, ‘Stay thirsty my friends’, will never be more appropriate than this weekend.
