Behold: Food porn from John Hickenlooper's Inauguration party

Last night, John Hickenlooper, Denver's former mayor -- and now governor -- was surrounded by supporters hungry for change, which Hickenlooper vowed to deliver in a sixteen-minute speech earlier yesterday before the blow-out inauguration party at the Fillmore celebrating his rise to the top.

But Hick's proponents were hungry for something else, too -- namely barbecue (and all the requisite sides), which was provided in abundance by Occasions by Sandy, a local caterer that utilized a bumper crop of Colorado products to feed the mouths of the ravenous masses.

Herewith, what the new governor (and his adherents) feasted on at the Fillmore.
