Work Options for Women is hosting its monthly cooking class at Cafe Options today from 6 to 8 p.m. Chef Justin Cucci, chef/owner of Root Down and Linger, will return as the guest instructor, bringing the same “field to fork” mentality that has made his restaurants so popular to lessons in how to make such fan favorites as Root Down’s Roasted 3 Chili Chicken or one of Linger’s many ethnic street foods. Tickets are $75; sign up here — but hurry, because there are only a couple of spots left!
If you aren't able to grab a spot for the WOW cooking class, or if you'd just like to set back and be served tonight, head to Lola. The Mexican fish house will be hosting one of its Regions of Mexico dinners, this one celebrating the Tabasco region of Mexico. The five-course, $65 prix fixe meal will feature tequila and drink pairings. To reserve a spot, call 720-570-8686.
