I HEART Harvest week. If there's one week to go out to eat, it's this one. The harvest menus available at your local independent restaurants are exceptional -- and the cocktails are great, too. In fact, the cocktail in the above shot was so good that I actually forgot to take the photo until I'd already finished half of my drink.
Made with Stranahan's Colorado Whiskey, carrot juice and ginger liqueur, it tastes a million times better than it sounds. But it's only available until Friday, September 18, so you'd better get your guesses in quickly. To preview Harvest Week menus, go to: eatdenver.com.
Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
