Located across from Will Vill on the Southside of town, Moe’s Original Bar B Que’s newest location will open at 675 30th Street on Tuesday, January 31st. From ‘Bama, via Vail Valley to Boulder, Moe’s Original Bar B Que is bringing the southern soul food revival their customers crave. With densely populated neighborhoods all around and the nice mix of university students and faculty, local families and seniors, the prime location seems like a natural fit for Moe’s Original Bar B Que to become involved with the community. Open 11am-midnight daily, the restaurant also will feature a full premium bar that will eventually stay open until 2:30am on the weekends.

Much like perfecting the recipes passed down for generations, there is a tremendous sense of pride that goes into creating the atmosphere of Moe’s Original Bar B Que. With a capacity of 75, the Boulder location has incorporated a good bit of refurbished and recycled materials. “We are giving new life to beetle kill trees from property in Evergreen, windows from a mountain cabin, and tables and chairs from restaurants past,” said owner Mike Shelly. “We have also brought some refurbished ski chairs from some of Colorado’s ski hills in from the cold.” There is a rustic, woody and comforting feel to the space with a clear separation between the family dining and bar top seating along the open air windows. The 16 seat patio allows a lucky few to enjoy the awesome Colorado weather while mowing through a plate of Moe’s Original Bar B Que.

Creating a profitable family of restaurants, Moe’s Original Bar B Que’s founders have brought in partners who share their philosophy of a strong work ethic, a respect for the business plan, and a love of BBQ. Even in this economy, the company is growing at an aggressive, yet manageable pace by not opening cookie-cutter restaurants.

On January 28, both local and national musicians will be sitting in for beloved singer and songwriter, Mac Leaphart, and performing his songs at The Hippodrome. Benefiting a man who has successfully made a career out of connecting with people through his music, proceeds will go to Mac in his ongoing recovery from a serious car accident and recent surgery to remove a brain tumor. A unique experience of camaraderie and good will, performances of Mac’s music will be set against a visual narration of the event on the theatre screen and give life to Mac’s story and his significant impact on those around him.

The concert features collaborative performances by Mark Bryan (Hootie and The Blowfish), Danielle Howle, Five Way Friday, John Wesley Satterfield, Joal Rush, Doug Jones (Craven Melon), Luke Cunningham, Greg Payne (The Piedmont Boys), Ryan Bonner, Jamie Resch with Shovels & Rope, Donnie Blackwell and more very special surprise guests. Reid Stone and Guilt Ridden Troubadour featuring members of Mac Leaphart’s current band, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company, will act as house band and musical conductors for the night’s celebration.

As doors open at 6:30 pm, acoustic music by Jim Marshall (Junkyard Angel) and a silent auction will start in the lobbies. Food concessions provided by Home Team BBQ and a full bar will run throughout the night. The concert begins at 8 p.m. in the theater and will last until 10 pm followed by more live music by Five Way Friday and John Totaro’s Classic Woodies until 12 a.m. or later. Garage parking is available as well as free parking in the open lot adjacent to the venue.

Mac Leaphart is a singer/songwriter who plays a blend of country, rhythm and blues. The Charleston City Paper describes Mac as “a rowdy set, which seems to meld Gram Parsons with the ‘Sticky Fingers’ era Rolling Stones”. Since his arrival in Charleston in 2007, Leaphart has been performing over 250 shows a year, solo and with his band, Mac Leaphart and My Ragged Company. Give Mac a listen and see why Skope Magazine says, “This guy may just single handedly save country music.”
