Vail Chophouse, Blue Moose say thank you to customers

Daily Staff Report
Vail CO, Colorado

VAIL ” After a very successful and enjoyable first winter in Vail, the Chophouse and Blue Moose restaurants would like to say thanks to the local Vail community for their support throughout the season. And what better way to do so than to throw a local’s thank you party on the Vail Chophouse deck. Join the Chophouse and Blue Moose staff on Saturday from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday on the deck for an evening of food, music and company.

“We had a wonderful first season in Vail and we are well aware that this is largely due to the overwhelming support we received from the local Vail community. This event is our way of expressing our gratitude to all of the locals that have supported our restaurants thus far and have made this experience so enjoyable,” said Sarah Franke, the communications manager for the two Vail restaurants.

The party will be a BBQ offering brat and burger plates for only $5 and featuring specials on beer and wine. Additionally, the event will feature the music of locals’ favorite Tony Gulizia and his band the Headliners. The Headliners are composed of musicians from around the nation, including Tony’s brother, Joey Gulizia (percussion), Roger Neumann (saxophone), Kirk Garrison (trumpet), Andy Hall (bass), and Michael Pujado (congas and percussion). All are accomplished musicians. In fact, saxophonist Roger Neumann has written arrangements for the likes of Ray Charles, Count Basie, and the Beach Boys to name a few. The group is in town to participate in the Valley’s Jazz Goes to School Program, and will perform at the Vilar Center for the Arts on Monday afternoon as a part of the program’s final session.

“In addition to serving as a great tribute to the local Vail community, this event is also a fitting kick-off to an amazing summer season for the Lionshead Village as a whole,” Franke said. The Lionshead area has a summer event calendar put together, which includes the Jazz at Vail Square Series, the Rocky Mountain Antique Festival, the Vail Arts Festival, the Lionshead Chili Cook-Off, and a family focused Friday Afternoon Club. The Vail Chophouse and Vail Blue Moose also plan to add a variety of events to their schedules to fill in the summer season and to further compliment the already robust Lionshead schedule.
