But Adelitas isn't the only spot in town that looks beyond happy hour to drive business. Here are a half-dozen other spots with noteworthy specials.

Pan-seared sea scallops at Zengo.
Mexican Independence Day officially starts at midnight tonight, marking Father Miguel Hidalgo's cry for independence to rally the people of Mexico in 1810. Mexican restaurants throughout the Denver area will be helping guests celebrate with specials and parties. Some are rolling out one-day deals, while others are adding seasonal menu items for those who can't make it to their eateries tomorrow. Among them are Zengo, which is launching a culinary tribute to Cabo, and Kachina Southwestern Grill, which is offering a souped-up guacamole menu for the day -- and a recipe for the restaurant's house version of the universally loved but seldom perfected dish.

Little Man Ice Cream celebrates its millionth scoop tonight

Categories: A Real Deal

littlemanoutside.jpg
Paul Tamburello, a developer who's done several landmark projects in LoHi (and even coined that nickname), drew inspiration from his own past when he created Little Man Ice Cream back in 2008. His grandfather had owned an ice cream store in Chicago in the 1930s, and he thought the edge of Highland could use a store of its own. But not just any store: Tamburello created a shop that looks like a giant milk can. Every summer night -- and some winter nights -- crowds line up outside Little Man Ice Cream. But Tamburello isn't just interested in feeding Denver: With the Scoop for Scoop program, Little Man helps feed the world: For every scoop of ice cream you purchase, Little Man matches it with a scoop of rice delivered to a developing country. And tonight you can celebrate the one-millionth scoop.

Three Leaf Concepts
After a hot day of hiking under the Colorado sun, the only thing more satisfying than ice cream is cheap ice cream. Not that we need an excuse to indulge, but this Sunday is National Ice Cream Day (according to the people who come up with all these national food days). At Chautauqua Park in Boulder, the new General Store, which now occupies cottage 100 right next to the historic Chautauqua Dining Hall, is offering a two-for-one deal on ice cream, sundaes and shakes on July 20.
