Today's featured event: Ante up for SAME Café at charity poker tournament tonight

Ever since the Westword cover story on the SAME Café hit the stands last week, the non-profit restaurant reports that larger crowds of customers have been coming through the doors to pay what they want for food.

So now is a great time to support Libby and Brad Birky's feed-the-masses mission by signing up for the SAME Café Ante-Up Charity Poker Tournament tonight at the Cap City Tavern -- an event that's guaranteed not to land participants on the front page of the Denver Post, as happened to some Denver celebs who used to cut loose at a just-shuttered illegal gambling club. Players get a chance at winning prizes like dinner at Osteria Marco, a night at the Magnolia Hotel, a new cruiser or -- drum roll -- New Belgium beer for a year.

That's right: 365 days of Fat Tire, Sunshine Wheat and Mothership Wit. It's like a drink-what-you-want thing to help the pay-what-you-want thing. Nice.
