Save the date: LoDo Bites!
And somewhere between the Ninth Avenue Food Festival and the Pierogi Fest in Whiting, Illinois, comes yet another of our own, homegrown foodie fiestas: LoDo Bites (genius name, by the way...). On Tuesday August 18 from 5 to 9 p.m., those who are interested can stroll up and down the streets of LoDo sampling the fare from twenty neighborhood restaurants. Participants run the LoDo gamut and include everyone from Vesta Dipping Grill (which is a perfect fit for this kind of event), Dixons (just identified in the latest Guess where I'm drinking?) and the Wazee Supper Club to a couple of bars that really ought to just give out baseball hats, certificates for free tramp stamps and references for DUI lawyers.
In other words, it's a guaranteed good time. Tickets for the extravaganza are $25 in advance, $30 the day of the event, and more information can be found online at the lodo.org website.
