Culinary Calendar: Take a bite out of Colorado and more this week

The 29th annual Taste of Colorado gets under way at Civic Center Park this Friday and runs through September 3. The end-of-summer festival is known for celebrating unusual foods -- rattlesnake brats, wild-boar sandwiches, curried goat, beet burgers and chocolate-covered bacon, for instance -- but the fair also features dozens of merchant booths, chef demonstrations and six stages of live music.
