In celebration of Denver Food and Wine's tenth anniversary, the Colorado Restaurant Association Education Foundation has teamed up with Heroes Like Us to throw a Caribbean-style beach blow-out today. Tiki Tiki Tiki will be held at the RiNo Beach Club at Exdo Event Center, which will feature a sandy beach, luxury cabana seating, and a jungle of tropical features.

The tropical-themed event will feature a tropical drink and culinary competition with bartenders and cooks from across Denver. There are sure to be plenty of little paper umbrellas, so throw on your best island ensemble for a chance to win great prizes at Exdo from 6 to 9 p.m. tonight. Tickets are $50 and you can get them here.
And mark your calendar for a special Denver Food and Wine dinner at Humboldt tomorrow, as well as the grand tasting on Saturday.
