Things to Do

A Trio of Tasty, Do-Good Options: Eat Out and Help Out Today!

Eat well and do good today at one of these three tasty options — or try them all!

The staff at Billy's Inn is getting into the holiday spirit today by donating 100 percent of all lunchtime tips to the MaxFund Animal Adoption Center and no-kill shelter. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., any tip you leave will go straight to MaxFund. The restaurant is also helping to find Ranger, a well-behaved seven-year-old Boxer mix, a new home by offering a free dinner and drinks for two to whoever adopts him. For more information, call Billy's at 303-455-9733.  

This evening, you can savor food from one of your favorite restaurants while helping a great cause: Dine Out to End Childhood Hunger. For the fundraiser, over twenty Colorado restaurants have teamed up with Share Our Strength's Cooking Matters Colorado, and will be donating 10 to 20 percent of sales to the charity. Restaurants and breweries like California Pizza Kitchen, Black Shirt Brewing, TAG, The Corner Office, The Good Son and more will be participating; for more information, including a full list of participating restaurants, visit    

Starting today and running through Sunday, MOD Pizza is celebrating the seventh anniversary of its Spreading MODness campaign. During this stretch, MOD Pizza in Park Meadows is partnering with TLC Meals on Wheels and will be donating $1 from every pizza sold to the charity.
