Things to Do

Today: Pints & Bites with Jeannie Ritter

There's a cornucopia of culinary events in Denver tonight, with everything from the Westword Dish/A Menu Affair at the Fillmore to Penny Parker's Sense of Security benefit dinner at Lola. And for an appetizer, First Lady Jeannie Ritter is hosting "Pints & Bites," a benefit for the Governor's Residence Preservation Fund.

The event, which runs from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Governor's Mansion at 400 East Eighth Avenue, features thirty different beers (the governor's beverage of choice), 23 dishes incorporating food from five Colorado farms, and chef and brewer presentations. Individual tickets are $100; for more details, click here.
