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

On Thursday, September 29, Top Chef champion Stephanie Izard, who's just about ready to embark on a book tour, along with Alex Seidel, chef/owner of Fruition, will share the kitchen with Lon Symensma at ChoLon Modern Asian Bistro when all three kitchen magicians commune to host a four-course, family-style craft beer dinner.

Tickets to the feast are $120 per person, plus tax and gratuity, but last week, we gave Cafe Society readers the opportunity to snap up two complimentary seats if they could answer our contest question: How many orders of soup dumplings did Symensma serve during the month of August?

After more than 100 guesses, we have a winner.

Congratulations to Chelsea, who guessed 1,659 soup dumplings.The actual number was 1,673.

Tickets to the dinner, which should be nothing short of memorable, are still available (a portion of the proceeds benefits Share Our Strength) and can be purchased by calling 303-353-5223.

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.
