We have a winner of our Great Divide/Harman's Eat & Drink contest, in which we asked Cafe Society readers to answer this question: How many beets are in the box in the above photo? Judging from the number of submissions, dozens of you clearly want to go this, but only one of you can win...and the winner is Kakoivisto, who guessed 127; the actual number is 138 beets. Kakoivisto, we'll send you an e-mail with info about how to claim your prize.
Original post: On Thursday night, at 7:30 p.m., Harman's Eat & Drink, the farm-inspired Cherry Creek restaurant that owner-chef Mark Fischer owns in Cherry Creek, is hosting a Great Divide beer supper paired with multiple dishes from exec chef John Little, and because we know how much you all lust after beer and great grub (the menu is on the next page), we're giving away two seats to the dinner to a Cafe Society reader and a guest.

Little spends a lot of time digging through the produce at the farmers' market, recently scoring a rainbow of beautiful beets, and in order to win our contest, you'll need to answer a question pertaining to the root vegetable -- and the photo at the top of the page. Here's what we want to know: Exactly how many beets are in that box?
The person who comes the closest to the actual number without going over, will win. To enter, please submit your best guess, your name and a valid e-mail address (if you're already registered with MyVoiceNation, then we have your e-mail; if you're not, then we don't, and without an e-mail address, you can't win) in the comments section below.
We'll announce the winner by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, August 28.
You can also purchase to the beer pairing dinner (they're $52.80 each, exclusive of tax and gratuity) by calling 303-379-9759; advance RSVP is required.
