We love a good mash-up here in the West—we practically invented pairings like yoga and vegetarian food at Ubuntu in Napa, an Irish meets Eritrean food truck in SF, and beer cocktails in San Diego. But we found one that just might be the best yet: Southeast Asian snacks + cocktails + ping pong = a night out at Ace Eat Serve in Denver's Uptown neighborhood. You'll know you're there when you see the airplane tail out front.

Fueling up for a game puts your chopstick skills to the test in the best way. Bao buns, sticky wings, dumplings, and crispy snapper scream out for the seductively dangerous-sounding cocktails to pair with them...The Girl with Green Eyes perhaps? The dash of Thai Chili Sugar will give your serve some kick, just in time for you to get your game on.

It's our favorite kind of fusion. Know of any other fun Western mash-ups? Let us know below, or tweet to @Westphoria.
