Eat Well (Even Vegan!) and Do Good at a Trio of Tasty Events Today
Root Down gets down with Raw Night tonight.
Today is your last chance to catch some culinary cinema — and dinner — at the Denver Botanic Gardens. The gardens and Chipotle will wrap up the 2015 Chipotle Sustainability Food Film Series today with a screening of Hanna Ranch, a film that follows Colorado rancher and "eco-cowboy" Kirk Hanna and his family as they struggle to maintain their way of life in the changing American West. The film is $5 and begins at 6:30 p.m.; dinner from Chipotle will be served at 6 p.m. and is included in the ticket price. You can learn more and register for the screening here.
For years the Denver Voice has been helping to address issues facing Denver's homeless and underprivileged, but today you can help the Voice. Join the Voice at its annual Wine and Appetizer evening at Marlowe's Restaurant at 6 p.m. tonight. The evening includes a holiday-gift themed silent auction, meet-and-greet with Voice vendors, and wine and appetizer pairings. Tickets are $50 in advance and $75 at the door;, get yours here.
