Cowboy Star Restaurant and Butcher Shop celebrated their second anniversary in Colorado Springs by treating guests to burgers and brats as well as the craft brew stylings of Colorado Springs’ own Smiling Toad Brewery. (Grand Opening press release from 2015)



The event also raised funds for Care and Share. It was standing room only for most of the 4-hour event, despite some nasty weather Saturday.



Employees worked the grills on the deck, in the wind and the cold and kept everyone well fed and smiling. The Smiling Toad guy did his part as well with some delicious IPA, Amber and Stout on tap.
