We've now picked the five winners who are getting dinner for two at one of the restaurants participating in the the first August edition of Denver Restaurant Week . But anyone can find a winning deal during DRW. From August 23 through 29, more than 200 restaurants will be offering special, three-course dinners at just $60 for two (not including tax and gratuity). So clear your calendar and loosen your belt; there's lots of good eating ahead.
For our contest, we asked readers to tell us why they're glad Denver Restaurant Week has added an August edition. They could talk about a food they were looking forward to, the joy of patio dining in Denver...or just vent about how disappointing your summer has been so far.
Check the comments section below to see the responses -- and learn whether you were a winner. If so, make sure you e-mail your mailing address to firstname.lastname@example.org. And watch for more on DRW in the days ahead.
