Mark your calendar for Thursday, September 6. That's the date for Dish, Westword's eighteenth annual event dedicated to eating and imbibing.
We're staying outside this year, but moving the festivities to a new venue: the Sculpture Park outside of the Denver Performing Arts Complex, where attendees can enjoy the great outdoors as well as great drinks, great entertainment and, above all, great food from more than forty of Cafe Society's favorite restaurants, all there at our invitation.
Here's just a taste of the places that will be serving their specialties that evening: Biker Jim's Gourmet Dogs, Cafe|Bar, Comida, Crimson Canary, Crock Spot, El Taco de Mexico, Fire on the Mountain, Interstate Kitchen & Bar, Juicy Burgers & Dogs, Manneken Frites, Sexy Pizza, Thai Monkey Club, Tony's Market...and more!
The fun runs from 7:30 to 11 p.m. on September 6. (VIPs get an early start at 6 p.m.) Advance tickets go on sale Thursday through the Voice Daily Deal -- when they're half-price -- so sign up here now to take advantage of that offer.
Official ticket sales for both general admission ($35) and VIP ($75) start Monday, July 30, at westword.com. We'll serve up more delicious details then.
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.
