The Denver Whiskey Company is partnering with the hip new basement cocktail bar, Ste. Ellie, at 7 p.m. tonight on a fundraiser for those who fell victim to the floods in northern Colorado. The event will have free food and various whiskeys for tasting, as well as a chance to win your very own bottle. Guests can contribute a small donation in lieu of a cover change, to be donated to the CAN'd Aid Foundation -- founded by Oskar Blues owner Dale Katechis in order to support the Colorado community, especially flood victims.
