Boning up on our Anthony Bourdain contest

Tomorrow night, Mayor John Hickenlooper will give Anthony Bourdain a fork to the city when he introduces the travelin' man at "An Evening with Anthony Bourdain" at the Buell Theatre. Of course, Bourdain has already forked this city: After visiting Denver on a book tour in 2002, he said he saw no reason to return, because the food here was so bad.

That inspired our first ticket giveaway contest, in which we asked readers to list the three restaurants that Bourdain should visit, restaurants guaranteed to change his mind about the Denver food scene. Nathan won that round (with Ian a runner-up), but taken together, the collected answers create an excellent guide to dining in Denver, as you can see here.

Yesterday, when we got our greedy bhands on two more sets of tickets, we introduced a second giveaway, which involves putting a caption to the picture at right. We're accepting entries on that until noon today (the winner will be announced at the end of the day). And you won't want to miss the entries thus far, which you can read here -- where you can also enter the contest.
