The Junior Symphony Guild certainly thought so, and in honor of its fiftieth anniversary, its holding a week-long fundraiser, Fill Your Plate Just Like 1958, at Baurs Ristorante, 1512 Curtis Street. For a donation of $58 per couple or $30 per single, diners can enjoy a special prix fixe menu time-warped to 2009 at 1950s prices. Baurs owner/operator Jimmy Lambatos went back into the archives of Baurs from the 50s and dug up old menus, and what the recipes were, and what the pictures were like, and thats what hes going to be working off, explains the guilds Carole Kramer. The dinner special starts tomorrow and runs through Saturday, March 21 (make reservations by calling 303-534-4842 or going to www.baursdenver.com). But from 3 to 6 p.m. today, a kickoff party will give diners a taste of whats to come, with 50s attire, music, heavy hors doeuvre and a cash bar featuring 50s cocktails. Admission to the party is the same $30/$58 arrangement. Neato!
