Thanks to the Super Bowl champs, Denver has seen a lot of local pride lately, and today you have another chance to show your civic pride: with a Civic Center Love window cling, which you can grab at today's Civic Center Nosh & Posh. On the second Tuesday of every month, Nosh & Posh brings food trucks and mobile boutiques to Civic Center Park from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. today, filling the space with food and fashion. The event will continue through April; for more information, head to civiccenterconservancy.org.
And after you enjoy lunch in the park, you can spend the evening at one of two do-good events.
Colorado Mountain College Culinary Institute, Keystone Resort, Breckenridge Distillery and Broken Compass Brewing are teaming up to put on “A Celebration of Haute Cuisine” tonight at Keystone Ranch, 1427 County Road 150 in Keystone. Keystone Ranch Executive Chef Steve Vlass, a CMC alum, will lead CMC culinary students as they prepare a four-course meal complete with drink pairings. The evening begins at 6 p.m. with a custom aperitif designed by Breckenridge Distillery and Broken Compass Brewing. Tickets are $165 and can be purchased here; proceeds support scholarships for the culinary program’s student apprentices.
Get in the Valentine's Day spirit at Visions of Love at the Anchor Center today from 6 to 9 p.m. The wine and chocolate pairing will feature plenty of wine and chocolate, cheese, hors d'oeuvres, live music, prizes and more. Tickets to the event are $45 in advance or $55 at the door; there is also a VIP option for $75, which includes chocolate and whiskey pairings, as well as a demonstration of the art of the flambe. Proceeds benefit the Anchor Center for Blind Children. For tickets and more information, click here.
