Things to Do

A Glass Act at Morton's

The clubby atmosphere at Morton's always makes an evening at this LoDo institution feel special (especially if you hit the cozy bar when those free steak sandwiches make their appearance). But on Monday, April 28, Morton's will host a particularly special event: the fifth annual Wine-Tasting Benefit for the Tennyson Center for Children and the Third Way Center.

You couldn't find two better causes, or a better way to enjoy doing good. The $250 VIP ticket buys entry for a 6 p.m. reception; the hoi polloi (at $150 per) come in at 7 p.m. for a silent auction, meaty buffet and all the wine you could possibly want (even if it's doled out in civilized tasting sizes). Morton's is at 1710 Wynkoop Street; for tickets, call 303-825-3353.
