Denver has evolved over the past twenty years -- and so has DISH, Westword's annual celebration of the metro Denver dining scene. On Sunday, September 22, DISH will return to the Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, a stunning outdoor venue on the edge of downtown. And for the first time ever, we're hosting DISH during the day, so that you can actually see your surroundings -- as well as some of the best food Denver has to offer. DISH attendees will enjoy samples from more than forty of Cafe Society's favorite restaurants and food trucks, as well as Readers' picks from the Best of Denver 2013. There will also be samples of beer, wine and spirits, along with live entertainment to keep you moving throughout the afternoon.
But fair warning: Ticket prices about to go up. See also: Photos of the food from DISH 2012
Close to fifty restaurants, trucks and food businesses have already signed on to be part of DISH this year, including: Kevin Taylor, El Chingon, Slider Shack 303, Stoney's, Big Kiwi Eats, Azucar Bakery, Biker Jim's, Boone's, DiFranco's, Interstate, Table Six, The Kitchen, Early Bird, El Taco De Mexico, The Hornet, The Real Dill, Williams & Graham, Gaetano's, Lola, Mustard's Last Stand, Maggie and Molly's, Nile Ethopian, Rio Grande, Trillium, Al Lado, Tin Star Smokehouse, Slotted Spoon, Pink Tank, Fuzzy Tacos, Central Bistro & Bar, Sugarlicious, Tamayo, Sushi Sasa, La Calle Taqueria, Jonesy's, Orange Crunch, WaterCourse Foods, CHUBurger, Patxi's Pizza, Rackhouse Pub, Row 14 Bistro & Wine Bar and Tamayo.
Early ticket prices* are $50 VIP (which gets you into the event at noon, as well as special seating and other goodies), $25 general admission (those doors open at 1:30). The event run until 4:30 p.m. Food Bank of the Rockies and Volunteers of America will receive a portion of the proceeds.
But those early ticket prices are only good until midnight tonight. After that, VIP will rise to $60 (still a bargain!) and general admission will be $35. To buy yours now, click here.
And if you were hoping to win the pair of tickets we advertised last week, better luck next time. Those tickets have gone to NeicyWagnerGeis.
