Black Crow, the outdoor extension of the Rio Grande in Lodo, is hosting a Maestro Dobel Tequila tasting event from 6 to 8 p.m. tonight -- and there are still a few $15 tickets left. Tequila isn't the only thing you'll be able to taste; there will also be an array of appetizers including lamb sliders, trout corn dogs, sopes, ceviche and pork skewers courtesy chef Matt Drije, a new addition to the Rio team.

Drije has introduced a new menu in Black Crow's on-site food trailer, and there have been some other changes on the patio, which is now set up as more of an urban campground, complete with fire pits and more games, including Cards Against Humanity, Giant Jenga and Chandelier Corn Hole.
"A campground is a special place that provides time for slowing down, laughter and memories made around a fire. To that end, we want Black Crow to become an oasis: a true outdoor dining and cocktail camp that just happens to be located in the middle of the city," said Rio founder Pat McGaughran in announcing the new look, which debuted May 1.
To find out if there are any spots left for tonight's tasting, call 303-623-5432. See the complete Black Crow menu here.
