Tonight kicks off two of Denver's biggest food events of the year. The 8th Annual Denver Food and Wine will be hosted at Metro State while Westword's Dish event is on the lawn outside Denver's Performing Arts Center. Here's the scoop on both:
Denver Food and Wine
When: September 6-8, 2012
Where: Metropolitan State University of Denver
What: A three day event will give patrons a taste from 35 of Denver's best restaurants and over 600 wines and spirits. The two events to make are Friday's Restaurants Rock! and Saturday's Grand Tasting Event kicking off at noon, hungover of course. Take away some knowledge from one of the seminars on Friday including Riedel's Glass tasting and walk away a pouring pro.
When: September 6, 2012
Where: Sculpture Park outside of Denver's Performing Arts Complex
What: For the 18th year, Westword will host their Dish event with live music, libations and tastes from Cafe Society's (Westword's food blog) favorite Denver places. Don't miss the corn nuts and green eggs and ham served by Lance Barto of LoHi's Central Bistro.
