We love the brunch at Lola, the coastal Mexican restaurant at 1575 Boulder Street that won Best Brunch in the Best of Denver 2008, but we love this event even more:
On Wednesday, April 30, Lola is hosting Dos Casas, a charity event benefiting Brent's Place, a haven for young cancer patients and their families. Chef Jamey Fader has invited five fellow chefs -- Sheila Lucero of Jax in Denver, Matt Selby of Vesta Dipping Grill, Goose Sorenson of Solera, Tyler Wiard of Elway's and Duy Pham -- to join him in cooking up regional Mexican plates to match Lola's excellent cocktails. Tickets are $75 or $150 VIP; to find out more, click here. -- Patricia Calhoun
