Fuel Cafe's Bob Blair and Masterpiece Deli's Justin Brunson are partnering up to support the C.A.F.E. grant program brought by Slow Food Denver. On October 3, Blair, who is about to open reFuel, and Brunson, who is planning Old Major, will throw down an Argentinean-inspired dinner—think empanadas, ceviche, grilled vegetables, and dulce de leche—to support the C.A.F.E. dinner fundraiser.
C.A.F.E. (Community- Art- Food- Education) aims to support innovative and sustainable food initiatives in metro Denver through micro-grants. Denver restaurants have done their part to encourage the program—the first two dinners of 2012 were hosted by Bittersweet and Brava Pizzeria Della Strada. The C.A.F.E. program has raised over $12,000 in two seasons, funding 12 micro-grants supporting 12 different local programs.
Tickets for the Blair-Brunson dinner are $50 per person including a three-course dinner, wine, and beer (tax and gratuity also included) and are available on the Slow Food Denver event website.
