A decade ago if you had asked someone where to find an environmentally conscious restaurant in Denver, you might have received a scowl. However with restaurants constantly adopting new sustainable, organic and conscious practices, it seems that Denver has fully embraced this new movement. Denverites now realize that for a long time we had little understanding of where our food was coming from, what was being added to it or what it was doing to our bodies. So in order to change that, many people are leading Denver’s dining scene through a rebirth; a food revolution so to speak. There’s been a rise not only in new sustainable restaurants but various chefs dedicating themselves to the sustainable cause. With this movement taking hold in our beautiful city, it makes sense that we take time to celebrate and showcase the efforts of our local restaurants.

Hoofin it, presented by Imbibe in partnership with Mile High Business Alliance and Heroes Like Us , will be a three-part culinary walking tour showcasing Uptown’s favorite restaurants. This event is dedicated to growing sustainable partnerships between responsible ranchers and Denver’s kitchens. This year you can join the hustle by reserving your time, and then shuffling from stop to stop. The featured restaurants include Park & Co, The B Side, and Ace Eat and Serve. Unlike the last Hoofin It, this event will be condensed to Uptown so diners can spend more time with the ranchers and the restaurants. Here diners will snack on carefully curated plates like Crispy Tender Belly Sweetbread or a Sweetwater Ranch Buffalo Popper Burger.  And of course, this good food comes with a good cause because a portion of the proceeds will go to Mile High Business Alliance.

303 Magazine is sponsoring the 7:30 PM time slot. Reserve your ticket today and come nosh with the 303 Magazine Food + Booze staff!
