Dish, Tour de Fat and more on the culinary calendar this week
On Thursday, September 6, Dish, Westword's eighteenth annual food-and-drink festival, will fill the Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex with great entertainment, great drinks and great food from restaurants and trucks that have been hand-selected by Cafe Society scribes.

Wednesday, September 5:
The first film in this year's Chipotle-sponsored Sustainable Film Series at the Denver Botanic Gardens, 1007 York Street, is screening tonight at 6 p.m. The series will feature movies about food, eats from Chipotle, and thought-provoking panel discussions afterward. Tonight's screening: Truck Farm, the story of how an old pickup truck -- and the garden in the back -- toured the country. Admission is a suggested donation of $5 to help support educational programming at the Gardens. For more information, call 720-865-3500 or visit the website.
