Colt & Gray Do-over for Foodie Friday

Back in March I had all the best intentions of taking our friends Julia and Alex to Colt & Gray in Denver. Plans change, and much like the whispering willow, I am flexible. Suffice it to say, we did not go to Colt & Gray, and since then I have been trying to find an excuse to partake! Lo and behold, it’s Foodie Friday, and this month it was my pick! Can you guess where it is I may have forced requested we go? None other than Colt & Gray!

So today I thought I would prepare myself, as any foodie fanatic would do, for the selections of the evening. It is before noon Mountain Standard time, so I thought I would peruse the dinner menu before venturing to cocktails. As it always manages to do, the charcuterie and cheese section immediately caught my eye. All I know is that I want to someday write descriptions for wine and cheese. I appreciate a fantastical turn of phrase, and fancy myself a bit of a wordsmith on occasion. So now I know if I fail at life, I too could be writing phrases like “Briny and gooey, with a robust pungent flavor. Finishes with slightly mushroom and salty flavors.” Now that is cheese with a presence. Sold.

I may or may not be a HUGE fan of a cheese board... and may have had only this for dinner... on multiple occasions.

After satiating my desire to plan ahead and appeal to the taste buds, I turned to the Cocktails and Beer menu. I rarely review wines in advance… typically I am a little overwhelmed to think about wine. So instead, I focused on my pre-dinner beverage. The list is both unique and hilarious, with appropriate references to Ron Burgundy and Sex Panther (“Contains real Panther; so you know it’s good.”). Where would we be without a few Archorman references? I, personally, have my eye on the A-Sharp (which is always better than B flat… oh wait… This one is for all the pun-appreciative musicians out there!).

I am excited to have another amazing Foodie Friday in the books, and thrilled to finally try the long-awaited Colt & Gray! Happy Friday everyone!

Any fun Friday plans?  Is there a new restaurant on the menu?  Do you plan out your dinners in advance or wait for the surprise?
