It’s no secret I’m a big foodie, a big supporter of independent businesses, and a big supporter of FUN, so I’m really excited about “The Big Eat 2018” coming to downtown Denver on July 12 from 6:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.!
What It Is
The Big Eat is Denver’s annual showcase of independent restaurants. You won’t see any bland, predictable chain restaurants represented here! Instead, you’ll have a unique opportunity to explore offerings from more than 65 of Denver’s best restaurants — plus sips from Colorado’s distilleries, breweries and wineries, curated by the Colorado Bartenders Guild — under the canopy of The Galleria at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
Who It Supports
The event is sponsored by Eat Denver, an association of locally-owned, independent restaurants committed to supporting and promoting the value of independent dining within our community. Tickets for The Big Eat 2018 support Eat Denver’s efforts to strengthen the independent restaurant community and elevate the dining scene through collaboration.
