EatDenver, a kick-ass squadron of more than fifty independent Denver food temples, puts out several awesome events and deals throughout the year, including Harvest Week and the EatDenver Dining Decks, a collection of 52 cards, each pimping $10 off any $25 food purchase at participating restaurants.
And on Sunday, EatDenver is rolling out the Big One -- namely The Big Eat, a carnival-themed culinary blowout at Union Station that will include four different bands, all of which have at least one member in the industry; face painters, clowns and jugglers; a pie-eating contest; carnival food (think duck-fat popcorn, grilled corn, pancake-wrapped corn dogs and cotton candy) and liquid assets from the best of the best.
Who's going to be there? 1515, Avenue Grill, Black Pearl, duo, El Camino, Encore, Euclid Hall, Green Russell, HBurger, Hideaway Steakhouse, Happy Cakes, Jonesy's, the Lobby, Lou's Food Bar, Marco's Coal-Fired Pizzeria, Olivéa, Rialto Cafe, Root Down, Snooze, Steuben's, Steve's Snappin' Dogs, Vesta and Wednesday's Pie, along with beers from Great Divide and Wynkoop Brewing, and local libations from CapRock, Downslope, Leopold Brothers and Peach Street Distillers.
