Just in time for your New Year's preparations, Alliance Française De Denver is holding an educational wine-tasting class on Champagne from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. today. Alliance Française sommelier Ashley Vaughters and cheeses expert Devin Lamma from Whole Foods Market Cherry Creek will explore the taste of celebration in six Champagnes and pairings. Tickets range from $50 to $60; you can grab yours here.

Project Pie in Boulder will be donating half of the day's proceeds to benefit the Boulder Bridge House and its work to address homelessness in Boulder. The deal runs from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. today; find more information at projectpie.com.

Asbury Provisions is throwing a Blue Plate Special Auction to benefit SAME Cafe at 5 p.m. today. Asbury is teaming up with Platt Park Brewing Co., Fort Collins Brewing, Renegade Brewing Company and Station 26 Brewing Co. for the evening of old-school dishes and craft beer -- and all proceeds from these featured specials will go to SAME Café. To increase their donation, diners can opt to "bid" more than the cost of the plate on throwback classics like meatloaf, chicken a la king, tuna noodle casserole and more. For more information, visit asburyprovisions.com.

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.
