Amendment XXI, a brand-new shop at 2548 15th Street, will donate 5 percent of all sales -- fine wines, import beers, eclectic spirits -- on New Year's Eve to the Historic Elitch Theatre Foundation. "Help us return this landmark to its rightful place as a vital cultural venue in Denver," says foundation boardmember Jose Mercado, who held another fundraiser last night at Z Cuisine that sounds like quite the party. Just mention this post when you make a purchase today. Owner Leo Bortolotto promises to stay open until 11 p.m. or the last customer leaves -- but if you want to call in advance, the number is 303-477-5646.
