PIKES PEAK ART & MUSIC FEST.  Look for TAPAteria serving Paella and the Rusticater serving pizza slices at the 3-day Pikes Peak Art & Music Fest July 4-6, 10am-6pm, in America the Beautiful Park.  Admission is FREE. 

ARTWALK. With this month's Artwalk falling on Fri, July 4th, our Independence Day holiday weekend will be even more busy so please be sure to call ahead for seating.  It is going to be a great holiday weekend!  Pizzeria Rustica 632-8121.  TAPAteria 471-8272.

NEW SPECIAL AND RESERVE WINE LISTS. Come in and enjoy the new wines we have featured for the summer from crisp whites and sweeter reds to enjoy on the patio to reserve Barolos and Amarones for that special occasion.  And all special wines are half off on Wine Wednesdays.

FIDDLES, VITTLES & VINO.  Exec Chef and GM Jay Gust is one of the founding fathers of Fiddles, Vittles & Vino and he has promised something really special this year for the 10th anniversary.  Come join the wine, vittles & song on Sun, July 27th 2-8:30pm. 

LOCAL FARM AND RANCH PRODUCE.  Every week brings a more bountiful selection of local farmer produce like beautiful striped chioggia beets and garlic scapes from Hobbs Farm, red tip magenta lettuce from Venetucci Farm, and fresh local lamb from Flying M Ranch in Peyton.  We will have a special grilled local lamb tasting plate on the patio at TAPAteria 11-12 July.  Lamb rib, slider, chop, and lamb taco.  And we have the hyper-local greens and herbs we grow in our own gardens.
