27th Annual Chef’s Cup

On Friday, January 22nd, the 27th Annual Chef’s Cup Dinner Dance will be held at Winter Park Resort’s West Portal station. The event is a fundraiser for the Winter Park Competition Center youth ski & snowboard programs.

I’ve written about the Competition Center before, and this is a wonderful annual event to raise money by eating, drinking and dancing at the same time – not necessarily all done at the same time or in that particular order I hasten to add. I tried it once and it was messy.

Somewhere between 10 and 15 restaurants in Grand County (we’re down a few on last year!) will donate their time and creative energy to rustle up tasty morsels, in-house specialties, and maybe something completely ordinary that an estimated 400 people will taste and vote on in various food categories. There’s complementary wine, margaritas and beer to wash it all down, plus a chance to bid on some great silent auction items.

The event is 7PM – 10PM and tickets are $55.00 in advance for single, $100.00 double, or $65.00 at the door. I don’t know which door that is, but you’ll find it. For more information call 970-726-1590.
