Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

On Sunday, September 25, Westword's DISH, our annual celebration of the Denver dining scene, returns for its 22nd year. The festival of food will take over Sculpture Park at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, where dozens of local restaurants will offer samples of their best dishes.

Fire Restaurant, inside the Art Hotel on South Broadway, is decked out in museum-quality modern art — and the savory croque monsieur sandwich from the kitchen is a work of art, too, and proof that the French can improve any dish, even a humble ham and cheese sandwich. Gruyere cheese, melted on the inside and broiled until bubbly and crisp on the outside, makes the sandwich a crave-worthy addition to the DISH collection.

Sink your teeth into this and plenty of other artfully built bites, all at a discounted price if you buy tickets soon.

Through September 15, you can grab a general admission DISH ticket for $20 each if you go through westworddish.com and use the code EATLOCAL. That ticket gets you a taste of this yummy sandwich plus unlimited food from all the other vendors, beverage and liquor sampling, and live entertainment from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. And don't miss the smokin' hot section dedicated to barbecue, a special feature at this year's event.

We've got an even better deal on VIP tickets: using EATLOCAL, they're just $40 each and include early access to the event at 11 a.m.; unlimited food, beverage and liquor sampling; and access to a VIP area featuring an open bar provided by Stella Artois and live entertainment.

Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
