Couples taco-eating contest at Mezcal and other Valentine's Day events

Couples looking for an off-the-wall activity tonight -- those hungry for more than love -- should check out


's Couples Taco-Eating Contest, in which the competing couple that eats the most tacos (filled with either chicken or mixed veggies) wins a $150 gift card and a trophy. Although the roster of seven couples (who each pay $30) is filled, you can always hope for an opening -- and you can definitely watch the action for free. The contest starts at 6 p.m. at Mezcal, 3230 East Colfax Avenue; for info, call, 303-322-5219.

There are many, many more Valentine's Day activities, including too many dinners to detail here, but you'll find plenty of possibilities in our online Food & Drink listings. For example, how about this lovely evening for two in a yurt in Crested Butte?
