Things to Do

Colorado Cocktail Project ticket winners!

Dry with an unexpected splash of everything else! That's what Lori Gray thinks Colorado tastes like, and that entry in our Cocktail Cocktail contest just won her two tickets to the two-day Colorado Cocktail Project, which will be pouring out wisdom -- and drinks -- at the Museum of Contemporary Art June 26-27.

But we also loved Mantonat's entry, and so are serving up another pair in honor of this description:

Equal parts High Plains Drifter and The Shining.
