Breakfast (and/or Lunch) Park & Main
Three words: scrambled egg bruschetta. The mere promise of Park & Main’s fluffy eggs mixed with prosciutto cotto and fontina should have you jumping out of bed. Planners take note: Grab the pecan wood–smoked BLT with chipotle mayo for a portable (and affordable) lunch on the mountain. 500 S. Main St., 970-453-9493, parkandmainfood.com
Aprés–Ski Mi Casa
Few things taste sweeter than a cold one after a day of moguls. Sip a Left Hand Milk Stout or a margarita made with one of 120 tequilas and order Mi Casa’s dollar tacos—beef, chicken, or black bean—during happy hour (3 to 6 p.m.). Bonus: The eats come with chips and three fresh salsas. 600 South Park Ave., 970-453-2071, micasamexicanrestaurant.com
Ditch the gear and freshen up for a night out at Twist. Order a beer from the extensive Colorado craft brew list and share the Buffalo-style roast quail (a spin on classic Buffalo wings) with Maytag blue cheese and bacon. Follow up with the chicken-fried steak doused in rabbit-rattlesnake sausage gravy. 200 S. Ridge St., 970-547-7100, twistbreck.com
Late–Night Eats Modis
At Modis, happy hour isn’t just for the before-dinner crowd. From 9 to 11 p.m., find deals on Great Divide Titan IPA, one of more than 30 wines by the glass, and Prohibition-era nightcaps. Pair your drink(s) with the spicy J.Z.’s steak-and-cheese eggrolls or dip into the hand-cut truffle fries. 113 S. Main St., 970-453-4330, modisbreck.com
