Comida Celebrates First Anniversary With Tequila and Mezcal Dinner This Weekend

It's hard to believe it's only been a year since Comida Cantina opened in the Source -- ingrained as the building has become in the Denver dining scene's collective consciousness. Since then, the hulking industrial-age brick-and-steel space has become home to more restaurants, a butcher shop, a tap room and a bakery, but Comida was the first, and now it's putting on a feast to celebrate.

The five-course tequila and mezcal dinner will take place this Sunday, August 24, at 6:45 p.m., featuring paired cocktails made with Tequila Ocho and Pierde Almas Mezcal.

Tickets are $65 per person (exclusive of tax and tip); it looks like it's going to be a hot party, so call 303-296-2747 or e-mail the restaurant to grab seats or get a menu rundown. Bartender Nick Touch of the cocktail and hospitality team Bon Vivants will be on hand to shake things up.

And watch for the Source to hold its own anniversary party this fall.
