News / Best of the Boat 2011: Slopeside Grill
Saturday, February 18, 2012
First Place: Best Apres Ski ,br> Second Place: Best Place to Watch the Game Third Place: Best Happy Hour, Best Late-Night Fare
Ski up to live music, southern exposure and an ice bar made out of 70, 300-pound blocks of ice. It’s no wonder aptly named Slopeside Grill won this coveted category.
Throw in the “beach,” a pint pass and fire pits and you won’t want to leave until after the late night happy hour that serves up $7 pizzas and $3 brewskis.
“We pride ourselves on our live music seven days a week,” says general manager Chad Gagliano, who used to own the nightclub Levelz. “And we plan to raise it up a notch moving forward.”
Look for the first signs this summer, when Slopeside becomes even more of an après hot spot thanks to the daylighting of Burgess Creek and the newly opened promenade. Revelers might not be able to ski up to their wings, pizzas, best-selling sausageand- pepper plates and Mount Werner-size nachos, but mountain biking to your snacks and suds isn’t bad, either.
