Another successful date night for these two happy kiddos.

With Zach traveling so much — we wanted to make our one full night together special and decided a date night was the perfect way to do just that.

Ironically enough, Zach and I had both eaten a lot of sandwiches over the last week so our only requirement was NO sammies.

This morning, we both had the same idea: Bang in the Highlands neighborhood of Denver.

We’d been there once before and loved it, so we were pretty confident we’d have another good experience.

Date Night

We started the evening with drinks, of course.



Sparkling water for me.  With the race so close, I have been doing the whole “just say no” thing to alcohol for the past week or so.   It has helped in previous races, and I figure it can’t hurt, right?  I’m all about being hydrated right now.  There will be a time and place for a glass of wine again, my friends :).



We opted for the baked shrimp starter, which was served with a crispy polenta cake.  We actually got this same plate last time, and loved it just as much the second time.  YUM.  I don’t know what they do to those shrimp, but it’s not fishy in the least.  Just fresh and full of flavor.

And for our entrees, we split a Cobb salad and rigatoni dish.  I throughly enjoyed both dishes, but focused more on the Cobb.  With that said, I’d say my favorite element of the entrees was the sausage in the rigatoni dish though.  YUM.

Overall Experience


We arrived at dinner around 730, and had no problem getting seating right away. They have an outdoor patio that we actually sat at last time we were there.  Over the winter, they have it closed in and heated, which provides a nice cozy environment.

Our service was quick and efficient.  We never waited for anything, and the food came out surprisingly quick.  If anything, I’d say the service was more attentive than it even needed to be, but I wasn’t complaining.


The food at Bang! is made up of American Classics with a twist.  The food itself is very simple but delicious.  Clean and crisp.  I would say this salty lady would have possibly liked a LITTLE more seasoning to the entrees, but let’s be real…both plates were delicious.


While I wasn’t drinking tonight, nearly everyone else in the restaurant was.  And that’s likely due to the fact that they have quite a few bottle options in the 20-30 dollar range.  HELLO GREAT DEAL!  I guarantee you next time Zach and I will take advantage of that one :).


Very reasonable!  For the two of us, I believe our meal, including starter, sparkling water and Zach’s drink, was about 40 dollars.  Salads are 7-9 dollars, entrees are between 12-15, and starters are in the 6-8 range.  Very reasonable  — especially for the quality of food you’re getting.

Would I recommend it?

Heck yes 🙂  And we will be back.

Question of the Night:  Do you like to eat family style?

Heck yes!  I love trying lots of different goodies!

  1. This past summer when Warren and I were travelling we started sharing meals so we could get the best of both worlds or we would order one main and then an appie to share. We enjoy it and have started doing the same at home.

    Sounds like you guys had a good evening
