Plan on eating out -- a lot -- on Thursday, May 1, when Dining Out For Life returns to Denver. Hundreds of restaurants will be donating 25 percent of their proceeds this day to Project Angel Heart, which delivers meals to people living with AIDS/HIV. Last year's event raised $380,000, and more than 350 area restaurants are participating this year; for a complete list, click here .
Or just stop by Mezcal at 3230 East Colfax Avenue, where I'll join an all-star lineup of alleged celebrities (City Councilwoman Carla Madison, Nick Cage of KTCL, songbird Lannie Garrett) who will be fighting to do more good than the lineup of more tarnished stars at Tambien, Mezcal's sibling.
Look for me behind the bar after 6 p.m., and if you can somehow distract me from bartending duties, I'm sure eveyrone in the room will be grateful. -- Patricia Calhoun
