If the blistering heat and the fact that (in Colorado) you aren’t allowed all the sparklers, crackle fests, and spinning wonders your heart desires is leaving you bummed this Fourth of July, don’t be too disappointed, we have you covered with all the food, drinks, and events around town that will fill that empty hole.
Whole Foods in Denver will still host their July 3rd Extravaganza this Tuesday, despite the lack of fireworks, at the Glendale location (870 South Colorado Boulevard). Festivities include food, drinks, live music, and activities for the kids. This year, Whole Foods is also adding a Colorado Craft Beer tasting for $12 per person. The feast starts at 5pm and ends at 9:30pm (beer tasting begins at 7pm).
Celebrate Independence Day at West End Tavern (926 Pearl St. Boulder, CO 80302) with an array of patriotic themed food and drink specials including an American Dream Whiskey Flight, Pop Rocks Cocktail, Jul-IPA, BBQ Slaw Dog, and more!
Alchemy Restaurant along with Hamilton’s Tavern, Green Flash Brewing Co & Viva Pops will be hosting their fourth annual July 4th BBQ Bash in San Diego, CA. Alchemy’s Executive Chef Ricardo Heredia will be serving all-American inspired dishes all day. From $12 a plate to $3-$5 for specialty cocktails and beer. Dishes on the menu include Texas style BBQ brisket, all-American pig roast, smoked tofu, corn on the cob, and potato salad.
Sink your teeth into some sizzling, crispy, homemade fried chicken at Watershed on Peachtree’s (1820 Peachtree Road NW Atlanta, GA) Chicken Fried Fourth of July. The menu features chicken fried steak sandwiches, firecracker green beans, and of course homemade biscuits to name a few.
Fourth of July just isn’t Fourth of July without a hot dog eating contest. Never fear, Nathan’s Famous Frankfurters offers just the thing at their flagship location on Coney Island. On July 4th, this tradition, started back in 1916, will have you doubled over in disbelief or massive hot-dog hangover.
And just for fun, enjoy these red, white, and blue tastes from our Forkly users. Have a happy, safe 4th from the Forkly crew!
