Business briefs: New restaurant, winter gear sale and networking event coming to Summit County

Summit Daily/Joe Moylan Patrons of the Gold Pan Saloon in Breckenridge were treated to a Breckenridge Distillery tasting Thursday as part of a Prohibition-themed party celebrating the recent completion of bathroom renovations.

The storefront previously occupied by the Smiling Moose at 842 Summit Blvd. in Frisco is being leased out to a new Argentinian restaurant, according to a property manager.

The new restaurant, Argentos Empanadas & More, will serve empanadas, a stuffed bread or pastry that’s baked or fried and originally from Latin America and Spain, along with other food from Argentina.

The name “empanada” comes from the Spanish verb “empanar,” meaning to wrap or coat in bread, and the empanadas are going to be made by Maria Empanada in Denver, according to Summit Place asset manager Brad Kornfeld, who added there’s already a strong following for them here in Summit County.

The suite is 1,236 square feet, and owners hope to have the restaurant open in time for ski season, Kornfeld said.

All types of gear will be available at the sale, including skis, snowboards, bindings, goggles, boots, poles, hoodies, beanies, backpacks, avalanche gear, gloves and more. This year’s event also will feature an increased roster of pro skiers and snowboarders selling their used equipement.
