Table 67 wants to fill what’s missing on Pueblo’s Riverwalk

In its short time, Table 67 is hopping even at 1 o’clock on a Wednesday afternoon. Upon entering, I find the restaurant’s main floor swathed in natural light and the air buzzing with music and lunchtime chatter. I immediately notice the open kitchen of which I am a hug fan. Something about an open kitchen suggests an admirable transparency that says, “We have nothing to hide. What you see is what you get.” Every brow of the kitchen staff is furrowed in focus as they work double-time to fulfill the orders of the crowd of lunch-rush guests that don’t quit coming.
I’m greeted by owner, Jim Beatty, who is right in the middle of the action – talking to guests, running food and overseeing his staff. We move over to the bar to chat, which may be one of the most attractive features of the restaurant besides, obviously, the gorgeous, spacious patio area. The bar hosts an impressive selection of wine and beer – including local favorite Walter’s Pueblo Chile Lager on tap. “The response has been amazing,” Beatty says of the community reaction to the new restaurant, “It’s busier than I expected it to be and I’ve been in this business all my life, so I kind of know what to expect!” The restaurant was sold out for their first reservation-only Mother’s Day brunch.
Beatty owned and operated Classic Catering Company here in Pueblo for nearly 28 years. The business was a primary concessioner for the State Fair Grounds and the Thunderbowl at CSU-P. He also formerly owned The Coyote Grill at the Nature Center along with a few other restaurants in Denver. Now, however, he is all in for his latest endeavor saying, “For the last couple of years I’ve been wanting to sell my chips and open a restaurant, and this happened to be it.”
Table 67 sits on the Riverwalk at 102 S. Union Avenue – in the exact same building as former restaurant, The Place, used to be. Unfortunately The Place closed at the end of February, a fact that Beatty takes into consideration saying: “[The Place] was fairly popular. But they went out of business. And so the community really wants this restaurant to be successful and open to the public… I think it’s important to the downtown community of Pueblo. People really support us that way.”
The Riverwalk location is another premium featu…

‘Yogurt on Union’ is a Go-To Guilt-Free Treat

Don’t overlook this sweet treat escape in Pueblo. It has some seriously good fro-yo.

Published

on

Frozen yogurt has been on the rise for some time now as a healthy substitute for ice cream. Especially now during these dog days of summer when more and more people crave something sweet to beat the heat that’s still bikini-body-friendly, they reach for a cup of fro-yo over an ice cream cone as it has less calories, less fat content and very little noticeable difference in taste and texture.

Until a little over three months ago, the only place in Pueblo to find good fro-yo was Menchies Frozen Yogurt – located in the Pueblo Mall. Now don’t get me wrong, Menchies is great! Except it’s a chain company. And for people like me who pride themselves in supporting local businesses, going there has the potential to induce a certain amount of consumer-guilt.

Cue Yogurt on Union: the new (local!) family-owned frozen yogurt shop located, as the name suggests, at 101 N Union Avenue right here in downtown Pueblo. Local business lovers rejoice! Not only does the location of Yogurt on Union in close proximity to the Riverwalk make it an ideal spot to cool off during a day full of summer shenanigans (without having to high-tail it all the way over to the northern side of town), but the shop itself is too cute not to Instagram. Enjoy a cup full of your favorite flavor inside at the sleek bar top facing out at the bustling Union Ave beyond, or take a short walk down to the water to enjoy your fro-yo riverside.

Unlike Menchies, Yogurt on Union has more to offer than only traditional soft-serve frozen yogurt. Yogurt on Union’s menu also includes yogurt-based smoothies, fresh fruit parfaits, and even Greek-style and non-dairy frozen yogurt selections. They also have a ‘$5 take-home freezer’ in the store where you can purchase pre-packaged containers of frozen yogurt (available in limited flavors) to save for later.

Health gurus also rejoice! All of Yogurt on Union’s product is made of 100 percent fruit sugar or fructose. Fructose is a naturally occurring sugar found in honey and fruit, and a healthy alternative to artificial sweeteners and cane and corn sugars. Fructose is absorbed by the body slower than these other sweeteners, which results in fewer fluctuations in blood sugar. Fructose also ranks low on the Glycemic Index, making it a better option for di…
