What better way to celebrate the anniversary of the repeal of Prohibition than a big booze battle? Head to TAG Burger Bar at 6:30 p.m. tonight for a fight of epic alcoholic proportions during Beer vs. Wine, when Infinite Monkey Theorem and Prost Brewing will battle it out to see who does the best job of pairing drinks with the dishes in TAG's five-course meal. Infinite Monkey and Prost will be on hand to explain and defend their selections; after each course, guests can vote with either a bottle cap or a cork for the beverage that worked best with the food. Tickets are $65; make reservations by calling 303-736-2260. See also: Chef and Tell with Drew Archer, chef of TAG Burger Bar
For a more sober celebration, the Ronald McDonald House is hoping to raise $135,000 today through its Light the House campaign. Radio station KOSI 101.1 will be broadcasting live from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Ronald McDonald House at 932 North Potomac Circle in Aurora, which provides low-cost housing for out-of-town parents who need to be near their hospitalized children. There will be a slew of activities beside the broadcast, including an omelette station from 8 to 10 a.m. and pictures with Santa Claus from 4 to 5 p.m. (both free with a donation to RMH), as well as a Sugar Plum Bazaar with children's clothing and poinsettias.
