Parry’s Pizza, 9567 S University Blvd, Highlands Ranch

A good, sunny patio should probably come with a disclosure to bring your own sunscreen every time. Parry’s Pizza in Highlands Ranch is celebrating their new extended patio with a B.Y.O.S (Bring Your Own Sunscreen) party with special tappings of Parabola by Firestone Walker, Kreik by AC Golden, Grand Cru by North Coast, La Folie by New Belgium and more!
