Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Steuben's will host a toy drive to benefit the Denver Rescue Mission tonight, beginning at 9 p.m. and running until about 2 a.m. And if you donate a toy, not only does God give you a pat on the back, but you receive a free cocktail or Great Divide beer!

The cocktails are creations by eight of Denver's brightest Denver mixologists, who are teaming up with Sean Kenyon, Steuben's bar manager, to make a variety of signature cocktails.

Drinks are coming from Osteria Marco's Adam Hodak, Vesta Dipping Grill's Amanda Olig, Frasca Food and Wine's Bryan Dayton, Elway's Johnny Miller and Ky Belk, Rioja's Justin Russell, independent cocktail geek Mike Henderson and Parallel 17's Natosha Gottier. 


Kenyon brought this tradition from his previous employer, the Horseshoe Lounge. "Get in the Christmas spirit," urges manager Katie Kirwin. We're just trying to get everyone to give!"

To get in the proper spirit, bring a gift valued at $10 or under that's wrapped and labeled for a boy or a girl and a general age group -- as thanks, you'll get some spirited spirits. The Steuben's is located at 523 East 17th Avenue; Jason Sheehan recounted the story behind its inspiration in "Road Warriors," and named it Best Late-Night American Menu in the Best of Denver 2008.
And this event promises to be one very late, liquid night. For more info, visit the Steuben's website.--Tyler Nemkov

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
