Roughly 1,000 years ago in the highlands of Guatemala, a member of the Maya civilization lifted a clay vessel -- adorned with an intricate jaguar figure -- to his lips and took a slug of something.

But tonight you can sample dishes from more than thirty of Denver's hot, independent restaurants at the Big Eat.
