The Hot Rocks Griller Challenge, which benefits the Denver Health Foundation and its work on men's health issues, will be sizzling on the patio of Elway's Cherry Creek tonight, when some of Denver's elite chefs will face off in a "Sliders n' Sides" competition. This is the hottest ticket in town. See also: Elway's Hot Rocks Griller Challenge 2013
Fifteen chefs from restaurants including TAG, Beast & Bottle, Old Major, Panzano and, yes, Elway's will be firing up their best sliders and sides in hopes of being the last chef standing. In addition to sliders and sides, there will be a dessert chef station, live music from Chris Daniels and the Kings, a silent auction and a Sports Challenge with great opportunities to win.
The Hot Rocks Challenge will heat up Elway's patio from 6 to 9 p.m. (VIP party starts at 5:30); tickets for the event are $100 regular admission, $250 VIP and can be purchased on the Hot Rocks site -- if any are still available.
