Slide into the weekend mouth-first at one of a trio of culinary events tonight.
At the ninth annual Corks and Forks, presented by the Seattle Fish Company from 6 to 9 p.m., you can sample wines, spirits and food crafted by local chefs. There will also be live music, a silent auction and a wine grab, where guests can score bottles ranging from $20 to $100 in value. Tickets for the event are $50 for individuals, $85 for couples and $700 for VIP tables, and proceeds will benefit the National Sports Center for the Disabled. The bash is on the rooftop terrace at the DiVita building; for tickets and details, click here.
Stout Street Social will hold its monthly Brewery Night, featuring Bristol Brewing Company of Colorado Springs and its Laughing Lab, honey wheat Beehive and RyePA beers. The restaurant will offer tastings and ood pairings; for more information, head to stoutstsocial.com.
History buffs and cocktail connoisseurs alike will enjoy Thirsty Thursday at the Molly Brown House Museum from 6 to 8 p.m. Guests can meet Polly Pry, Denver’s legendary gossip journalist, as she introduces some of Denver’s leading ladies — from Mrs. Crawford Hill to Margaret "Molly" Brown and many others — and discusses their place in history. The event will feature drinks from Leopold Bros. You can dive into the past for $15; get tickets here.
