The last presidential debate happens tonight and Denver restaurants are taking to the dining rooms hosting watch parties while serving food and drinks to those eager to watch the foreign policy-focused discussion. Three debate-watch parties stood out for diversity of food, geography, and approach.
A one-night-only menu kicks off at Olivéa in honor of the 2012 election season featuring a three-course menu for $20.12 per person and a variety of wine options for the same $20.12 price per bottle. Sushi Sasa invites guests to its lounge to watch the debate on the projection screen while enjoying the regular dinner menu. Up in Boulder, Pizzeria Locale turns up the political heat with arancini, Sicilian-inspired fried rice balls coated with breadcrumbs and filled with mozzarella. The screen will be inside the Frasca Caffè where the arancini are part of the all-night happy hour that will be available.
