Ready, Spaghetti?

Spaghetti might be bad date food: It's sloppy, with a propensity for staining. But at the Father's Day Spaghetti Dinner at the Denver Firefighters Museum, 1326 Tremont Place, spaghetti will be the main course. Sunday pasta dinners are a long-running tradition, dating back to the inception of firehouses — which were run predominantly by Italian and Irish families, explains executive director Angela Rayne. "Lore has it Italians were the better cooks," Rayne adds.

As a special treat, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., visitors will be allowed to climb on the fire trucks for pictures and take a behind-the-scenes tour, including a walk-through of the new storage facilities and the basement — both big no-nos during everyday visits to the museum.

So tuck in that napkin and pull up a chair with current and former Denver firefighters. Tickets, $12, are available at 303-892-1436; for more information, go to www.denverfirefightersmuseum.org.
Sun., June 17, 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
