Dos Casas, a culinary extravaganza that benefits Brent's Place, a local nonprofit that provides hope and help for kids stricken with cancer, will pack the house with distinguished chefs: Jamey Fader of Big Red F; Goose Sorensen of Solera; Pete Marczyk of both Marczyk Fine Foods stores; Troy Guard of TAG, TAG|RAW BAR and Madison Street; Brandon Biederman of Steuben's; Paul Reilly of Encore on Colfax; Sean Yontz of El Diablo; Tyler Wiard of Elway's Cherry Creek; Sheila Lucero of Jax Fish House; Alex Seidel of Fruition; Matt Selby of Vesta Dipping Grill; and Jennifer Bush of Big Red F and the Bitter Bar. They'll all congregate tonight in Fader's home kitchen at Lola, 1575 Boulder Street, to create a multi-course feast for those lucky enough to snap up tickets. (Westword editor Patricia Calhoun, who claims Lola as her home bar, will emcee.)
"Brent's Place, and all the great things they do to help cancer patients, is extremely near and dear to everyone at Lola, and to all the chefs who participate in this event," says Fader, the culinary director of Big Red F. "It's our way of showing our gratitude for all of the wonderful support they give to kids coping with cancer." Seats at the shindig are $85 each, which includes a six-course dinner paired with wines and cocktails, or $125 for VIP tickets, which adds a cocktail reception at 6 p.m., preferred seating and a gift basket.
