Just in time for the 2014 baseball season, the Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant, one of Colorado's homegrown restaurant groups, is bringing its Rio Margs (can't/should not have more than two!) to Coors Field.
Rio on the Rocks will start serving baseball fans on Opening Day and will offer a selection of margaritas, cocktails and several Rio favorites like chips, guacamole, queso and house-made salsa. The partnership with the Rockies marries two of the state's beloved brands in one high profile location.
"Coors Field is one of the top baseball destinations in the country — both in attendance and fanfare, so it seemed only fitting to incorporate some local Colorado flavor into our guest experience," said Dick Monfort, owner/chairman and CEO of the Colorado Rockies. "The Rio experience is something every Coloradoan knows and enjoys and we're thrilled that those memories will now include baseball," he added.
Located on the Mezzanine Level in right centerfield, the space is comprised of 3,964 square feet of prime Rockies viewing, with capacity for 222 guests, and several premium seats available for regular ticket purchase. Fans will get to choose from the traditional Rio Marg, either frozen or on the rocks, as well as the popular Strawberry and Mango Margaritas—each as strong and delicious as those available at any Rio location. There will also be a limited food menu available.
