On Sunday, September 25, Westword's DISH, our annual celebration of the Denver dining scene, returns for its 22nd year. The festival of food will take over Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, where dozens of local restaurants will offer samples of their best dishes, including succulent seafood from a neighborhood favorite.

Angelo's Taverna has been slinging pasta and pizzas on East Sixth Avenue since 1974, but in 2013 the Italian eatery was reimagined. Classic recipes remained, but new ideas freshened up the menu — including oysters served both raw and char-grilled. On Sunday, Angelo's will be grilling tasty shellfish with a variety of toppings: arugula pesto with bacon and Gorgonzola; original with garlic butter, pecorino and herbs; and chipotle-bourbon butter. 

Westword Food & Drink eaters can still grab general admission DISH tickets for $20 each if they use the code EATLOCAL (click "Buy Offer"). For that great price, you'll be treated to those Angelo's oysters, along with unlimited food from more than forty other eateries, free beverage and liquor samplings, and live entertainment from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. (For general admission tickets: General admission DISH tickets through AXS)

We've got an even better deal on VIP tickets: Using the EATLOCAL code, they're just $40 each and include early access to the event at 11 a.m.; unlimited food, beverage and liquor sampling; and access to a VIP area featuring an open bar provided by Stella Artois and live entertainment. For VIP tickets: go to VIP DISH tickets through AXS.

See you September 25!
