On Sunday, September 7, 2014, Westword will host its twentieth annual celebration of the Denver dining scene, DISH, in Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex, where many of the favorite restaurants of Cafe Society writers and readers will be serving delectable dishes. Little Man On Wheels -- Little Man Ice Cream's pint-sized, mobile brother, which garnered our award for Best Food Cart this year -- will be returning to DISH to share more of its unique flavors.

On the 16th Street Mall and at a smattering of other locales, Little Man On Wheels attracts a long line of folks eager for a sampling of the legendary creamery's wares. The same happens at DISH, where diners can try three different kinds of the Man's ice cream.
Salted Oreo, Mexican chocolate and cucumber pineapple sorbet are this year's flavors, covering the bases from sweet to savory to sour and back again. "These flavors represent our restaurant by showcasing head chef Jordan Stearns' culinary freedom and expertise," says DJ Herzog, Little Man's event manager.
Ice cream is just one of the dozens of offerings you'll find at DISH, which runs from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, September 7. (VIP entrance is at 11 a.m.) To see what else is in store and buy tickets for this culinary celebration's twentieth anniversary, visit the 2014 DISH site.
