Photos: Happy birthday to Vesta Dipping Grill

"We've done dipped for fifteen years."

Vesta Dipping Grill celebrated fifteen years of dipping in LoDo last night with a six-course feast and fundraiser benefiting the nonprofit LoDo Cares. Owner Josh Wolkon invited former Vesta chefs Tyler Skrivanek of Duo, James Rugile of Mizuna, Wade Kirwan of Adrift, Dillon Maddox of Solera, Drew Hardin of Lola and Brandon Biederman of Steuben's to create a menu for the fun-filled reunion. Here's a recap of the food, and the revelry, courtesy of Lori Midson, who captured these photos.

And it wouldn't be a proper party without a little nudity, no? Some Vesta regulars who are into burlesque entertained the crowd. And check out the cleavage!
