In less than a year, Work & Class has made some big waves in the Denver dining scene. With plenty of praise for the food, atmosphere and beyond-friendly staff, it comes as little surprise to find the place packed every night. Come 2015, the Work & Class family will mark one very successful year in business, which calls for a celebration. On January 26, a $45 (pre-ordered) ticket will get you in the door to an all-you-can-eat, all-you-can-drink charity bash of fun and delicious proportions. Tickets for the party go on sale New Year's Day on the Work & Class website.
Only 120 tickets will be sold, and once they are gone, they are gone, so mark your calendars for some food, fun and a great cause.The theme for the bash is "What do you want to be when you grow up?" Guests are encouraged to dress up as their ideal childhood occupation and come nosh on some tasty, kid-inspired food you won't find on the regular Work & Class menu.
All proceeds from the event will be donated to Denver Urban Scholars, a nonprofit organization that helps metro Denver students with high school graduation and higher education goals. "Denver has been so good to us," says co-owner Delores Tronco, "and we felt that this would be a great opportunity to give back to the community that has made us successful."
As to how Work & Class plans to top 2014, Tronco humbly states: "If this time next year I can say that we've had virtually no [employee] turnover and a packed house six nights a week, then I think that's a success." With the great food coming out of the kitchen and the high level of service the restaurant maintains, that shouldn't be a problem.
