The Taste of Greenwood Village kicks off at 5 p.m. tonight at the Hyatt Regency Tech Center, 7800 East Tufts Avenue, with 32 restaurants, more than 30 wineries and a silent auction to benefit the Beacon Center, a Denver child-advocacy nonprofit.
Ticket prices range from $50, which includes food samples from all the restaurants, wine sips and parking, to $100 if you want to hobnob with the elite in the penthouse ballroom, where special food offerings, high-end wines, live entertainment and an after hours party are all part of the price tag.
Participating restaurants at tonight's event include Mel's Bar and Grill, Cool River Cafe, India's Castle, Il Fornaio, Las Brisas, Sahara, Yia-Yai's and Sam Taylor's Bar-B-Q.
