"It's hard to argue with Share Our Strength's tag line - No Kid Hungry - and I've always believed that so many of our nation's troubles could easily be solved by feeding our hungry children, letting them know that someone is thinking of them and committing to the hard work it takes to make it happen," says Vesta Dipping Grill and Steuben's executive chef Matt Selby, who's also the local chef chair for Share Our Strength.
The culinary bash kicks off at 5 p.m. at Mile High Station, 2027 West Lower Colfax Avenue, and includes glorious food gluttony from the participating restaurants, plus beer, wine, a muddle-and-shake cocktail competition led by Steuben's mixologist Sean Kenyon, live music from The Informants and a kick-ass silent auction trumpeting everything from gift certificates to local restaurants and vacation getaways to wine baskets and a Shaquille O'Neal jersey that Selby is already eying.
