Dear Friends, way back in 1973 I got in my Volvo with a good buddy and drove from my home in New York to

Boulder, Colorado, the almost mystical place all of us college students on the east coast kept hearing was the

Shangri-La for all self-respecting hippies. Like so many of you who are reading this, it was instant love. The climate,

the beauty, the gorgeous sunshine and, of course, the people…relaxed, happy, living the good life, made us both

want desperately to live in this little paradise. On our long, sad ride home, we decided that owning a bar in Boulder

could very well be the most wonderful experience we could ever hope for.

My other career in New York City kept me there until 1992 when I finally had the right life circumstances that allowed me to move here and realize this life-long dream. Although I hadn’t gotten into the restaurant/bar business to that point, the now 20 year thought process of creating a great sports saloon had been swimming around in my head and I knew I could create the “Cheers” of sports bars…fun, family friendly, spectacular sports viewing and with a strong sense of community. Lazy Dog is the culmination of all that thought, a lot of planning and hard work as well as a heart-felt desire to be a positive force in the neighborhoods we inhabited.

I am proud to say that Lazy Dog in both Boulder and Denver has been very well reviewed in every major publication in Colorado, has employed dozens of people for years and years, has created a new standard for food in a sports bar environment, sponsors dozens of local sports teams and clubs and most notably, has given to dozens and dozens of charities throughout Colorado. This has been, in my opinion, the best thing we have accomplished.

In addition to the above, Lazy Dog has been honored as “Best Sports Bar” by every reviewing newspaper and weekly in Colorado. In Boulder, it has won Best Sports Bar every year since its opening in 1997. This is an award that the entire staff earns and I couldn’t be more proud to be associated with the amazing staff I’ve had all these years, some of which have worked here for the entire time. I’d like to thank all of you for taking the time to read this and of course for your patronage over the years. Our motto, “every drink, every meal, every customer, every time” has served us well and it’s my sincere hope that you agree. 

Thank you all, Steven Ross.
