The Cherry Creek North Gourmet Series exemplifies the very best in both Colorado culinary assets and Rocky Mountain-region festivals. If you missed the free cooking demonstrations led by celebrity PBS chefs such as Nick Stellino, Lidia Bastianich and Rick Bayless then promise your stomach you'll attend tonight's Grand Tasting at Fillmore Plaza, Second Avenue and Fillmore Street in Cherry Creek. From 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., the area's best restaurants offer melt-in-your mouth food samples, while wineries and Ketel One's martini bar ply you with drink. Tickets are a steal at $65; visit www.ccngourmetseries.com or call 1-877-359-5606 to get your grub on.
