The Summer Olympics are almost here, and while the games are taking place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, that doesn't mean Denverites can't get in on the action. From watch parties to drink deals to a ceremonial punch bowl on fire, be on the look-out for Olympic specials - such as happy hours and activities - around town. For two weeks straight, the most competitive athletes from around the world go for gold in their sport-of-choice, including soccer, gymnastics, tennis, weightlifting and water polo. Here's a guide to the best bistros and bars around Denver to cheer on your favorite athlete and country.
The opening ceremonies start Friday, August 5 and conclude Sunday, August 21. And, while many bars will be airing the games live on television, it's probably a good idea to get there early for choice seating and service.
