Culinary Calendar: Take a bite out of Colorado and more this week
The 29th annual Taste of Colorado gets under way at Civic Center Park this Friday and runs through September 3. The end-of-summer festival is known for celebrating unusual foods -- rattlesnake brats, wild-boar sandwiches, curried goat, beet burgers and chocolate-covered bacon, for instance -- but the fair also features dozens of merchant booths, chef demonstrations and six stages of live music.
The inescapable and irresistible turkey legs aren't the only fare worth tasting at Taste of Colorado.
Here's a taste of what else is on the culinary menu this week:
