Food porn from last night's super secret dinner at the Sleeper House

A few weeks go, I received an e-mail from a woman inviting me to a Patrón Secret Dining Society dinner in Denver, and since I'm a tequila tramp, I took the bait.

The idea behind the dinners, which are organized by the people at Patrón and held throughout different American cities, is to pair a kick-ass chef with an equally kick-ass mixologist in an undisclosed location that guests aren't privy too until the last possible moment. In previous cities, those locations have included a private yacht in Newport Harbor and the Finnish Embassy in Washington DC.

And last night, in Denver, the dinner was hosted at the Sleeper House, the futuristic, architecturally dizzying, sculptured, five-story fortress that was originally built in the mid-1960s and later featured in Sleeper, the 1973 Woody Allen film.
