Denver Elites Get Smashed at Smashburger

Posted by Laura Levaas

Well, not literally, but 30 elites had a smashing good time at a menu tasting at Smashburger Englewood Tuesday night! Despite the rain and thunder that forced them off the Smash private patio, much fun ensued as appetizer after appetizer rolled out of the kitchen, founder Tom Ryan filled everyone in on his philosophy behind this growing burger chain, and guests even got to try their hands at smashing burgers during kitchen tours.

Elites samples all varieties of fried goodies, from rosemary french fries, sweet potato fries, fried pickles, onions and peppers, plus flash-fried veggies. Non-meat eaters got down on fresh salads, while the carnivores noshed on hamburgers, chicken burgers, and even Chicago Dogs. All of this was washed down with shakes, and an assortment of grown-up bevs including beer and wine.

As best said by Kat A: "What a "smashing" success tonight was (excuse the lame pun).  We were treated like straight up royalty in this joint. As soon as I sat down, I got all kinds of fried food (including fried green chiles, mmmm) delivered to me.  You want it, they bring it out!"

Special thanks to Hans Oey for taking snaps of the event.
