Chicken? What chicken? TAG forgoes cluck during Denver Restaurant Week, trumpeting kangaroo instead

Jensen Cummings, the chef de cuisine at TAG, jokingly calls Denver Restaurant Week "Denver Restaurant Half Month," a phrase he's coined to remind diners (and the service industry) that DRW is definitely longer than the one week its name implies. But if DRW was, in fact, one week long, then Cummings, along with TAG exec chef Troy Guard, would have had enough kangaroo to get them through the last day. As it turns out, the kangaroo, a starter on TAG's DRW menu, has proven so popular that Cummings says the kitchen will likely serve the last of it tomorrow night -- two days before DRW comes to a close.
