The fun doesn't have to end after Labor Day. On the afternoon of Sunday, September 20, the 21st annual DISH will fill Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex with our annual celebration of Denver's dining and drinking scene, featuring samples of signature dishes from more than forty of Westword writers’ and readers’ favorite restaurants.
The lineup includes Americatus, Angelo's Taverna, Azucar Bakery, Biju's Little Curry Shop, Biker Jim's, Boone's Tavern, Cebiche, Chuy Fu's, City, O' City, Cracovia, Dae Gee, Dunbar Kitchen & Tap House, Epernay Lounge, Fooducopia, Frijoles Colorado Cuban Cafe, Glazed & Confuzed, Golden Moon Speakeasy, Grateful Bread Company, Interstate Kitchen & Bar, Jimmy's Urban Bar & Grill, Keenwah, Co, The Kitchen Next Door, Little Man Ice Cream, Long I Pie Shop, Megenagna Ethiopian, Milk and Cake, the Nickel, the Noshery, Onefold, Orange Crunch, Patxi's Pizza, the Real Dill, Revolution in the Kitchen, Rosenberg's Bagels, Stoney's Bar and Grill, Table 6 and Tony P's.
That’s plenty to chew on, but this year we’re also introducing Tacolandia, a special area that will celebrate the taste of this town's street tacos, including versions from Adelitas, El Taco de Mexico, Lola Mexican Fish House and Yolanda's Tacos, with more to come. In Tacolandia, you’ll be able to take a quick trip to more exotic climes before wandering back to all the din and deliciousness of DISH.
That deliciousness also extends to wine, beer and liquor samples, all included with the price of admission, from our beverage partners: Stella Artois, SilverCoin Tequila, Stranahan's Whiskey, Buzz Ballz, Deep Eddy Vodka, Cointreau, Mile High Spirits, Bird Dog Whiskey, Locations Wine, Liquor Limo and Old Forrester.
And those prices will be going up at 10 a.m. today, September 1, to $50 for general admission, $85 VIP. Until then, though, the price for general admission (12:30 to 3:30 p.m.) is $40, and the price for a VIP ticket — which gets you in the door at 11 a.m. for ninety extra minutes of dining and drinking — is $75. So save money and guarantee plenty fall fun by getting your 2015 DISH tickets now — and if you use the promo code "Denverdish," you can get a $25 GA ticket!
