If kicking back with a plate of great food in front of you — a drink in one hand and a cigar in the other — is your idea of a perfect summer evening, don't miss CigarBQue. The event will feature an all-star lineup of chefs (Justin Brunson of Old Major, Hosea Rosenberg of Blackbelly, Jimmy Callahan of Lena, Karl Fallenius of Owlbear, Tim Murphy of Bones, Jeff Cornelius of Globe Hall and Jake Grant of Euclid Hall) as well as some of Denver's top bartenders (Austin Carson of Mizuna, Adam Hodak of Bonanno Concepts, Merlin Mitchell of Green Russell, Alex Fulle of Prohibition, and Jeffery Petrello of Old Major) for an evening of food, drinks, cigars and more.
CigarBQue takes place at Blanc, 3150 Walnut Street, and will be smoking from 6 to 9 p.m. today. The event will benefit the Cigar Family Charitable Foundation, an organization started by the Fuente and Newman cigar families, which works with struggling communities in the Dominican Republic by offering education, health care and more. Your $75 ticket includes food, cocktails, cigars (from Diamond Crown) and a contribution to the Cigar Family charity. Find more information and purchase tickets here.
