This will be the first film in this year's Chipotle-sponsored Sustainable Film Series at the Denver Botanic Gardens, featuring awesome movies about food, delicious real food from Chipotle and thought-provoking panel discussions wrapped up in one low-priced evening. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 to help support educational programming at the Gardens.
The food tasting starts at 6 p.m. and the film at 6:30 at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York Street. For more information, call 720-865-3500 or go to www.botanicgardens.org.
