Restaurants and bars all over town opened their patios Sunday -- on the first of March! -- to take advantage of the unseasonable temperatures. You can enjoy both the unbelievably balmy weather and incredible views from 7 to 9 p.m. tonight, March 3, at the Vistas at Park Meadows, where La Sandia will host its monthly rooftop tequila-tasting featuring the best of Casa Noble. A $25 ticket buys you apps, music and plenty of tequila; for more information, call 303-586-5511.
Back in town, the Leukemia & Lymphona Society, Rocky Mountain Chapter, is holding its "Man & Woman of the Year" Midway event at 6 p.m. tonight at Cry Baby Ranch in Larimer Square. Candidate Daniel Young, the chef who was rumored to be in line for a job at the White House, will be catering the event. For all the details, go to www.manwomanoftheyear.org/rm.
