Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

No time like now, just four days before Christmas, for those of you blessed with holiday bonuses to blow some of that wad on tickets to the annual Aspen Food & Wine Classic, one of the biggest culinary blowouts of the year.Tickets went on sale last week for the three-day feedbag, which comes down June 19-21 and costs a mere $1,085 before March 15. Miss that deadline, and you'll dish out $1,185 -- and that, by the way, is per person. In the event that you want to spring for a "Green Pass," which gets you more friends and benefits, don't forget to wrap one for me, too.

It's by no means a cheap date, but if you fancy hobnobbing and handshaking with the likes of Danny Meyer, Rick Bayless, Mario Batali, Giada De Laurentiis, Thomas Keller, David Chang, Jacques Pepin and first-timers Art Smith and Tim Love, a hot chef from Texas, then buy your tickets now; the Classic sells out every year. You can see a slideshow from this year's Classic here.

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.
