We don't know whether the two hotties pictured above will be participating -- or whether they eat a lot of Italian food to keep those bodies fueled -- but this much we do know: Maggiano's Little Italy, 500 16th Street, is hosting Great Balls of Fire at noon today, when Denver firefighters will bring out their best Italian recipes to compete in a benefit for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. To learn more, call 303-260-7707.

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.
