Stage one of the USA Pro Cycling Challenge begins today in Durango, which means we're less than a week away from a swarm of cyclists and their supporters in Denver for stage seven. In preparation for cyclist-overload this weekend, Denver eateries and bars are bracing themselves for the crowds. TAG, a Larimer Square restaurant staple and Eater 38 member, has announced that it will serve brunch this Sunday, August 26th— a light tease in preparation for when the restaurant unleashes regular brunch hours in coming months. Chef/owner Troy Guard will offer his signature taco sushi and Kobe beef sliders on the menu, as well as a collection of globally-inspired small plates and brunch entrées. The menu includes a "Hangover Cure" with eggs/lamb sausage/papas and a can of beer, "Loco Moco" with meatloaf/sushi rice/kimchi/soy-mushroom gravy and a lamb dip with leg a of lamb/au jus/duck fat fries.
Note to restaurant/bar owners and chefs: For those changing-up service and menus this weekend, give Eater a scout with details. Feel free to share specials as well — email firstname.lastname@example.org with the full scoop.
