Things to Do

Help the planet and Dine Out for Earth this Sunday at Coohills

Humans may rule the world, but that doesn't mean we always take care of our kingdom as we should. Everywhere you turn, you'll find stories of environmental setbacks and evidence of the planet's deterioration -- more often than not caused by industrialization and greed. Rock the Earth aims to send the world spinning in the other direction. Made up of environmental attorneys, technical consultants and marketing experts, the organization advocates for Mother Earth. Some of Denver's best chefs will be rocking out with Rock the Earth at a Dine Out for Earth fundraiser on Sunday, June 12.

Coohills will host the event, which will showcase the culinary talents of local chefs Charlie Ayers (Calafia Cafe), Bob Blair (Fuel Cafe), Tom Coohill (Coohills), Daniel Asher (Root Down, Linger), Troy Guard (TAG) and Justin Brunson (Old Major), who together will create a six-course, locally sourced menu paired with brews from Great Divide Brewing Company, wine from Infinite Monkey Theorem and cocktails from Roundhouse Spirits.

Musical entertainment from DJ Russo and a silent auction of music memorabilia and art will round out the evening. Dine Out for Earth run from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on January 12; tickets are $85 online in advance, or $45 for current Johnson & Wales University students. Any remaining tickets will be for $125 at the door.
