In true Colorado fashion, CIG hosted a Colorado-themed open house in November 2015 to showcase our new digs and our new brand. And in true CIG fashion, this party was not short on libations and tasty cuisine. The mixologist from Ste. Elle’s was the belle of the ball concocting the signature whiskey-based cocktail – the“CIG New-fashioned” – that included a little arson to spice things up.
The menu – from cocktails to cuisine – included everything locally grown: a “do-it-yourself’ green chili bar stocked with jalapeño cheddar corn bread croutons and cilantro onion relish; a slider bar where guests chose from a trout, buffalo or portabella mushroom slider with home-style chips; and a Little Man Ice Cream station whose most popular flavor was the “Space Junkie” full of chocolate chunks and marshmallow swirl.
Fitting four food stations, two bars, a photo booth, along with cocktail tables and seating room for guests was no easy task, but the CIG team’s creative use of space provided a very welcoming and fun environment for nearly 300 guests.
