EatDenver's Harvest Week returns with 36 restaurants and a series of pop-up parties at the GrowHaus

October is far and away my favorite month in Colorado -- and it really has nothing to do with marshmallow pumpkins, goblins or watching the original Halloween for the umpteenth time, although I do enjoy all of those distractions.

October signifies bounty in Colorado, with farmers' markets, farm stands and farmsteads overflowing with autumn's abundance of crops, and therein lies my obsession -- an obsession shared by local restaurants that celebrate fall's fortitude by showcasing stunning ingredients and products from the state's fields, farms and vineyards. And from October 14-19, 36 restaurants, all of which are members of EatDenver, a coalition of local, independent food temples, are paying homage to Colorado's rich bumper crop as part of Harvest Week, an annual event that began in 2008.
