Goodbye March, hello April. Denver is slowly inching closer to summer, and while that means longer days, warmer weather and grilling season, it also means the end of ski season; several events this weekend will help ween you off the white stuff.
April is also Autism Awareness Month, and Illegal Pete's is helping to raise money and awareness for families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders throughout the month. All you have to do to help is order your burrito smothered in goodness. For every smothered burrito sold in the April, Pete's will donate $1 to the Joshua School. To learn more about this deal and the Joshua School, visit illegalpetes.com.
Now that you know how to get April off to a good start (good food for a good cause), keep reading for ten tasty events this weekend.
Friday, April 1
Dancer and choreographer Gwendolyn Gussman presents Nourishment, a multi-sensory performance that will take over the Fleming Mansion today through April 3. The evening aims to entice all five senses through dance, live music, visual arts, food (including chocolate) and drinks, and more, while guests — along with performers — tackle the question: What does it feel like to fall in love? This is the first in a series of site-specific installments to be hosted around the country. Tickets are $75 or $50 for students; grab yours and learn more here.
Taste of Vail, which got under way on Wednesday, will continue to serve up wine dinners, seminars, signature events, a remedy brunch and more in the Eagle Valley this weekend; the culinary extravaganza runs through Sunday. For tickets and more information, visit tasteofvail.com.
