Things to Do

Be a DISH VIP and feed your caviar tastes on a tuna-fish budget

On Sunday, September 22, Westword's annual celebration of the Denver dining scene will fill Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex with food and drink from some of Cafe Society's favorite restaurants, as well as Best of Denver reader choices. Close to fifty restaurants, trucks and food businesses have signed on to be part of DISH this year, serving samples that make this a great event at any price -- but for the next few days at www.voicedailydeals.com/denver/, we're offering a very special deal on VIP tickets to DISH: $35 rather than the usual $60 (quantities are limited!).

The VIP voucher includes early entry (at noon rather than the general-admission time of 1:30 p.m.), access to the VIP section sponsored by Stella, two drink tickets and other goodies.
