Culinary calendar: Beer, pork, holiday fundraisers and more
The last of this year's quarterly pig roasts at Oak at Fourteenth takes place this Wednesday, December 5. And a feast at the Boulder restaurant that was our pick for Best Rise from the Ashes in 2012 serves as a pleasant reminder that the new year is upon us. Feel free to share your favorite culinary memories of 2012 in the comments section below.
