There's no doubt that the Historic Elitch Theatre has an important place in Denver history; after opening in 1897, the venue hosted such venerable names as Patty Duke, Grace Kelly, Ginger Rogers, Vincent Price, Dick Van Patten...the list goes on, and so could we. The theater has been under renovation since 2006, but there is still a need for funds to help restore it to its former glory.

That's where you come in: From 6 to 8 p.m. tonight, Lola, 1575 Boulder Street, will host a tequila tasting to benefit the theater; $40 nets you samples of Proxima tequila, plus appetizers and desserts. Reserve a spot at 720-570-8585 or e-mail lola@bigredf.com.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. 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. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
