Downtown Golden is home to a new culinary triple-threat, as Denver Biscuit Co., Fat Sully’s Pizza and the Atomic Cowboy bar are up and running at 1100 Washington Ave.
This triple-brand restaurant celebrated its grand opening Oct. 24 and has had a steady influx of customers in the days following.
This new Golden operation mirrors the chain’s original location, which started as a bar, added a pizza joint and then added Denver Biscuit Co. Thus, it operates as three brands under one roof, company representatives have described.
“We are thrilled to join the vibrant downtown Golden community,” Atomic Cowboy founder Drew Shader shared in an Oct. 24 press release. “ … So much detail went into the design of the space and new menu items to ensure the location … embraces the Golden community.”
The Washington Avenue building offers both indoor and outdoor seating, as well as a walk-up window off 11th Street.
From morning to midafternoon, Denver Biscuit Co. offers a selection of breakfast- and brunch-style foods, including its famous cinnamon rolls and brunch-style biscuit sandwiches.
Then, during the lunch and dinner hours, Fat Sully’s serves pizza and its award-winning Double Smash Lights Out burger. Starting at 4 p.m., it offers wings, garlic knots and dessert knots.
Finally, Atomic Cowboy complements both menus with signature cocktails, a full bar, and non-alcoholic mocktails.
The building is open from 7 a.m.-midnight Sunday through Thursday, and from 7 a.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. For more information, including full menus of all three brands, visit atomiccowboy.net.
Golden Civic Foundation welcomes new executive director
From consultant to nonprofit leader, Kim Mangle aims to continue serving Golden and its nonprofit community.
The Golden Civic Foundation has named Mangle as its incoming executive director. She’s succeeding Heather Schneider, who’s departing Nov. 30.
Mangle has been part-time in the role thus far, but will take over full-time by Jan. 1. Organization leaders believed the overlap between Mangle and Schneider would “allow for a smooth transition of relationships, processes and behind-the-scenes functions,” according to a recent press release.
Along with a master’s degree in public administration from the University of Colorado-Denver, Mangle has more than 25 years of nonprofit management and fundraising experience, the foundation described. Most recently, she managed her Golden-based nonprofit and government consultant firm, where she worked with clients like BGoldN, CASA of Jefferson and Gilpin Counties, the City of Golden and National Wildlife Federation.
Before launching her firm, she worked for various nonprofits like the Colorado Health Foundation, Colorado Consumer Health Initiative and the 9Health Fair, Golden Civic Foundation explained in the press release.
Separately, Mangle told the Transcript how she spent her first month meeting with the foundation’s current and former staff members, board members, advisors, and fellow nonprofit partners. She’s also been learning about the foundation’s 53-year history and preparing for 2024 events like the Golden Summer Jam and Wild West Oktoberfest.
“It’s very important to me to have a clear understanding of what the community values,” Mangle continued. “The needs and demographics of Golden today are very different than they were 53 years ago when (GCF) was founded to address the economic challenges of that time. We aim to be nimble and forward-thinking, and to support the community’s needs as they evolve and change.”
