Today’s recommendation of where to eat this weekend is brought to us by Becky Creighton, the founder of Culinary Connectors.
You’ve been skiing all day, you’re hungry, you’re definitely thirsty – you’ve just spent 1,000 calories screaming down the slopes and your body is crying for food and I’ll venture to say a beer. Where do you go to satiate your stomach’s hunger and your liver’s desire? I’d head to the Pitkin County Tavern at 305 East Hopkins Avenue.
New owner Rob Seideman re-opened this Aspen treasure earlier this summer and it is a definite place to check out. Every night seems to embody a neighborhood hang out from live music and shuffleboard to dinner specials that are easy on the wallet and tasty on the palate.
Pitkin County Tavern offers a different $5 dinner each night from fish taco platters to prime rib sandwiches. Partner that up with $2 Sam Adams and a friendly wait staff.
Pitkin County Tavern certainly offers more than their $5 nightly dinners. They also have a nice selection of steak and seafood entrees to the more casual soup and salad. Desserts here are not an after thought either. Try the lemon mousse with cardamom whipped cream or the chocolate whiskey pecan pie. Sounds delicious, doesn’t it?
The tavern atmosphere is great for grabbing a beer, bringing the kids for dinner or coming with a group to play a little shuffleboard while listening to live music. Pitkin County Tavern is open Monday – Sunday from 5:30 p.m. – 2 a.m. Have questions, call 970-544-MEAT (6328).
