Helping One of Their Own
A quick reminder: On Monday, June 16, the guys at Vesta Dipping Grill will throw a bash for one of their own: bartender Travis Van-Cleave. Seems the barman caught himself a case of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (that’s okay, I didn’t know what it was, either) and, in the process of getting himself well again, racked up a killer hospital bill.
“We will donate all proceeds from the evening to help put a small dent in the medical expenses that are hopefully all that remain of Travis’s bout with anemia,” says Vesta owner Josh Wolkon. The shindig will get underway at 7 p.m., with a select open bar, passed apps, a DJ, silent auction and “surprises,” he promises. Vesta is at 1822 Blake Street; for tickets, $60, call 303-296-1970.-- Jason Sheehan
