Tonight: Saucy behavior at A Saucy Affair

The blandest of foods can be instantly enlivened with the right sauce -- but which eatery has the most stellar sauce in the city? Tonight some of Denver's best restaurants -- including 1515, Beatrice & Woodsley, Elway's (in Cherry Creek), Root Down, Table 6 and, natch, Vesta Dipping Grill -- will face off at "A Saucey Affair," which will also feature wines, brews, live music and a silent auction.

The fundraiser is a collaboration between the Denver Independent Network of Restaurants and the 9Health Fair, and it runs from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Cable Center on the University of Denver campus, 2000 Buchtel Boulevard. Tickets are $65; for more details, visit
