Take a Bite Out of LoDo

LoDo Bites is a great opportunity for foodies of all stripes to taste small bites from twenty participating restaurants throughout the lower downtown neighborhood. "Some restaurants are going to be doing small appetizers, some will be doing small appetizers and desserts," says Jeannie Wert, communications and events coordinator for the LoDo District. "Everything is bite-sized. Some of the wine establishments are going to be doing tastes of wine. You can just walk around the neighborhood, try great food and get to know LoDo better."

Starting points vary, depending on the ticket. "We're scattering the people around the neighborhood so all the restaurants aren't hit at once," Wert explains. Participating venues include McCormick’s Fish House, Wynkoop Brewing Company, Wazee Supper Club, Rio Grande Mexican Restaurant, Morton’s, Dixons, the Palm, Celtic Tavern, Vesta Dipping Grill, Bistro Vendôme, Blues on Blake Supper Club, Ice House Tavern, Wines Off Wynkoop, Sports Column, Blake Street Tavern, Organixx, the Wine Loft, Kuulture, the Keg Steakhouse and Bar, and LoDo’s Bar and Grill.

LoDo Bites starts today at 5 p.m. Admission is $25 in advance, $30 at the door and $20 each for groups of ten or more. Tickets are available at the LoDo District office, Bouquets, the Wynkoop Brewing Company, Tony's Market, or online at www.lodo.org/lodo-bites-reservation-form.php. For more information, call 303-628-5424 or go to www.lodo.org.
