New Venue Spotlight: The Wild Game

There is a new option for meetings and special events in Evergreen, approximately 25 minutes from downtown Denver. Evergreen residents Dave Wilson and Sean Lynch redeveloped the former BMC West property into the Evergreen Mercantile Building and also developed The Wild Game with six meeting and entertainment spaces encompassing 24,500 square feet.

RENDEZVOUS TAP AND KITCHEN: This eatery holds up to 150 guests and serves Angus burgers and steaks, pasta, fish, sandwiches and salads, and a variety of cocktails and beers. The adjacent bar accommodates up to 80, and an intimate wine tasting room is ideal for small events of up to 16.

CLUBHOUSE: The sports and entertainment hall accommodates up to 250 and has largeformat HDTVs and projection screens, a bocce court, pingpong tables, shuffleboard, foosball, billiards, darts and an outdoor patio featuring horseshoes. An on-site event manager can develop team-building events and help hire a band.

GAME ZONE: This state-of-the art redemption and video arcade boasts popular skill games and allows players to accumulate points for prizes. Plus, eight lanes of bowling keep the action rolling.

VIP ROOM: For something potentially more upscale and private, this space holds up to 120 at round tables or 150 theater-style and has leading-edge A/V.

The Organization: PCs for People is headquartered in Minneapolis and recently opened a Denver office. The nonprofit organization refurbishes and recycles computer equipment from businesses, individuals and government agencies and provides them at little or no cost to families that could not afford them otherwise. PCs for People provides the same services for significantly reduced prices for eligible nonprofit organizations. pcsforpeople.org

 

Colorado is known as the state of craft beer, but it also has the most distilleries per capita in the country, the oldest craft distillers and some of the most innovative spirits being created. So it should come as no surprise that the first-ever Hearts & Trails Spirits Festival was held on Feb. 24 at Denver’s Mile High Station to highlight some of the state’s finest spirit artisans and celebrate the launch of the Colorado Spirits Trail.
