Things to Do

Lola Love

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
