Raw food is the latest trend, and you can try it yourself (with some veganism thrown in for good measure) tonight and every Tuesday, when Root Down chef Daniel Asher prepares a five-course, raw vegan dinner. The meals, available from 6 to 10 p.m. by reservation, are $42. Root Down is located at 1600 West 33rd Avenue; for more information, call 303-993-4200 or go to www.rootdowndenver.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.
