The Crested Butte Annual Arts Festival kicks off today and runs through Sunday, August 1; among the fabulous culinary offerings are cocktail seminars, gourmet dinners and free demonstrations.
But the real draw is tonight's five-course dinner prepared by the infamous Denver FIVE (Troy Guard of TAG; Matt Selby of Vesta Dipping Grill and Steuben's; Brian Laird of Barolo Grill; Jamey Fader of Lola; and Tyler Wiard of Elway's) will be cooking the feast, which starts at 6 p.m.. Tickets are $25 to $150 (depending on wine pairings); visit www.crestedbutteartsfestival.com or call 970-349-1184.
