Party On, Dude

Two weeks ago, Elizabeth Plotke of Campo de Fiore (300 Fillmore Street in Cherry Creek) announced that local business tycoon and big-time philanthropist Josh Hanfling had come on board as a partner at the restaurant, which opened back in 2001.

Hanfling is allegedly the man who knows everyone, and I'm guessing the hope around Campo is that he'll bring them all in for dinner. At the very least, he'll bring in plenty of press -- including a big plug on a party there in yesterday's Bill Husted column in the Denver Post.

And this one, of course. -- Jason Sheehan
