Flatirons Food Film Festival
Oct

to Oct 13

Flatirons Food Film Festival

October 10-13, 2019 will bring the seventh Flatirons Food Film Festival to Boulder, a carefully-curated smorgasbord of local, national and international films, speakers, art, and special events. This year’s festival features an exploration into immigrants and international cuisine that will include a tribute to Diana Kennedy, a British expatriate known by some as the Julia Child of Mexico, on the Saturday night.

 

The tribute will begin with a Mexican feast, and end with a discussion with James Beard semi-finalist Chef Claudette Zepeda, a San Diego-based chef most recently known for her time as the executive chef and partner behind El Jardín, a regional Mexican restaurant in San Diego, and Top Chef Denver. Inspired by the regional cuisines of Mexico where her passion for food was first cultivated, El Jardín was an expression of Zepeda’s culinary journey as a chef.

 

Other films with backdrops of immigrants and international cuisine screening on Saturday, October 12 include:

  • Tazzeka, a coming-of-age drama set in Morocco, at 1pm

  • Cook Off, a romantic comedy about a single mother competing in a televised chefs contest in Zimbabwe, at 3:30pm

 

The Festival’s opening night on Thursday, October 11 at the Boulder Public Library, will also explore immigrant contributions to our culinary melting pot, starting with two episodes from the Emmy Award-winning series The Migrant KitchenOmotenashi and The Jewish Deli. During the intermission, Miksaki at Superior and Rosenbergs Bagels & Delicatessen, respectively, will offer tastes of Japanese and Jewish deli food. A selection of visual art works inspired by these films, created by local artists, will be on display before the program and a complete exhibition of all of the works created will be on display at R Gallery from October 3-20.

 

Overview: Events prior to the Festival

 

Prior to the Festival, in collaboration with Alamo Drafthouse Westminster and Local Table Tours, the Festival will offer two tantalizing events as appetizers. The Alamo Drafthouse Westminster and Festival will co-present a screening of one of the Festival’s most popular films, Tampopo, on September 28. Also to whet appetites, Megan Bucholz of Local Table Tours will lead a Downtown Boulder culinary walking tour of Mexico’s best‑known culinary export: tacos and tequila cocktails, on Oct 2.

 

Overview: other Festival films and events

 

As part of its seventeen programs, the Festival will screen the latest SOMM wine documentary, SOMM 3, with an all-star panel of Master Sommeliers: Dustin Wilson of Verve Wine, Bobby Stuckey of Frasca Food and Wine, and Sabato Sagaria of bartaco, on October 11. Bees and other pollinators receive some much-needed attention with a screening of The Pollinators documentary, and two other pollinator events on Oct. 13, including a talk given by Tim Brod of Highland Honey on how to attract pollinators to gardens and farms.

 

The Festival wraps up Sunday Oct 13 with a screening of The Biggest Little Farm, followed by Eric and Jill Skokan, co-owner of the Black Cat Farm and Black Cat and Bramble and Hare restaurants, discussing the ups and downs of their own biggest little farm, then a dinner paying homage to Black Cat Farm and The Biggest Little Farm at Bramble and Hare restaurant.

 

Short films, including our Colorado Student Film Contest winning films, get their moment in the sun during “Small Bites: Short Films for Food People” at eTown on Saturday, October 12, at 12:30 pm.

Reel Kids will teach kids how to smart make food films after getting inspiration from food films made by Reel Kids students at “Film-making for Kids” on Saturday, October 12, 10am at the Boulder Public Library.

 

“A #MeToo Look at the Restaurant Industry” is one of two lectures in our new lecture series on Saturday, October 12 at 11am. Restaurant industry insiders Beth Gruitch, a partner in the Crafted Concepts restaurant group, and Sara Brito, Co-Founder of the Good Food Media Network and publisher of the Good Food 100 Restaurants™, will share their insights on this topic. The other lecture will be with Zepeda on the same day at 3pm. There will be some overlapping programs on Saturday, October 12 to accommodate our growing number of programs.

 

The Festival’s “Tribute to Diana Kennedy” program on Saturday, Oct. 13 will start with an authentic Mexican feast and continue with a screening of Nothing Fancy: Diana Kennedy, a new film that is the first and only documentary on Kennedy. After the film, Andra Zeppelin, former editor of Eater Denver, will interview Chef Zepeda, and moderate the Q&A that will follow.


Most films and events will take place in downtown Boulder, allowing festival participants to walk to and from films to downtown Boulder hotspots and festival events.

Ramen-O-Rama! Denver's Ramen Festival
All the noods you can handle: November 16, 2019

We all love ramen. Everyone does! Is there anything more perfect than a big bowl of this exquisite steamy cuisine? How about sampling all types of ramen from local chefs and restaurants?

Denver has a huge variety of amazing ramen restaurants and we figured it's about time to gather our favorites and have ourselves a little Ramen Festival and decide who will wear the ramen crown!

We crave those tangled, soft and delicious noodles, the hot pork- or chicken-flavored broth made even better by a cold day, all the possible adornments: delicate sheet of nori, a proper dicing of scallions, snow peas, a modest serving of miso paste, maybe some bamboo shoots, certainly a poached or hard-boiled egg, and if your diet allows for it some rich pieces of pork belly. These bowls of noodles are beyond satisfying and fun to eat with each bite a combination of new textures and flavors.

Your mouth is not prepared to sample them all at Ramen-O-Rama!

We have very limited tickets available and they will sell out, so be sure to RSVPnow and you'll get an email this Thursday when tickets go on sale!

Doors will open at 5 p.m., then Crick Wooder will warm up the crowd at 6 p.m. with a unique, Owsley-grade Grateful Dead Experience. The four-piece band has made a name for itself jamming on The Dead all along the Front Range.

From 7:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., Papa Mali Duo With Bobby Vega will get the crowd moving with bass, guitar and vocals that push the minimalist possibilities of acoustic string music. The duo has a combined experience of over four decades of touring, recording and exploration of American roots, rock, folk, psychedelic blues, funk, jazz, gospel and world music.

Roosevelt Collier Band will headline the 17th CANiversary celebration, with a soul-shaking live performance from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Known as “The Dr.,” Roosevelt Collier cures what ails a crowd with sacred steel guitar sounds. Collier has performed alongside acts like the Allman Brothers, the Funky Meters, Los Lobos and the Del McCoury Band. 

Don’t miss the opportunity to see this stellar musical line-up in the intimate Oak Room concert venue - one of the best spots in Longmont to see live music. The 4,275 square foot space is attached to Oskar Blues Brewery on the Northwest side of the building and includes a beer bar where your favorite Oskar Blues beers will be served. Guests are offered a view into the barrel room, where rare and specialty Oskar Blues beers are aged. Click here to see more information about the Oak Room.

Entry to the 17th CANiversary celebration is $25 plus taxes and fees. See ticket info here. This much-anticipated annual event at the Oak Room was sold out in 2017 and 2018, so don’t miss your chance to get your hands on tickets for this year’s bash.

The Wedding Party Hosted by Ben Higgins

The Wedding Party Hosted by Ben Higgins

COME CRASH THE WEDDING PARTY

The Festival that Says, “We Do!"

A life-long decision like no other calls for a party like no other. This summer, we at DiningOut Events are marrying 10 happy couples — and helping them to celebrate in style. So…if you’ve ever dreamed of crashing an epic, talk-of-the-town wedding, now’s your chance. We're releasing a highly limited number of “wedding crasher” tickets to the general public—so grab a date and come eat, drink, and be merry at the world's first collaborative wedding!


There will be a ceremony where all the couples will be wed by our host, Ben Higgins. But after that? It's an all out food festival with unlimited bites from 24+ restaurants, unlimited sips from our 26+ mixologists and beverage brands - oh, did we mention there is a 30 foot dessert table? Once you've had your fill we'll dance the night away to Taylor Pace Orchestra!


Crash the first ever Wedding Party for the ultimate celebration of love this Labor Day Weekend.


THE EVENT

In the era of food halls and co-working spaces, sharing resources has become the new status quo. More than ever, people are valuing experience over possession, and The Wedding Party is a festival designed to speak to this shifting paradigm.

The Wedding Party strips away the exploitatively expensive, stressful, often tired ritual of the marriage experience, providing a memorable alternative in the form of a shared, blown-out shindig like no other. The Wedding Party has welcomed all couples: straight, gay, bi-racial, multi-cultural, and without regard to religion. The betrothed will walk the aisle in a beautifully adorned tent and take the stage for an inspirational, non-denominational ceremony. Before a crowd of witnesses, they’ll say ‘I do.’ They’ll kiss. And they’ll be introduced as married by popular television personality Ben Higgins of ABC’s "The Bachelor” …and a party for the ages will commence.

25 of Denver's top local restaurants will dish bottomless bites of every food imaginable. The best mixologists in the city will work with top spirit brands to pour cocktails specially designed for the occasion. There will be wine tents, beer tents, game areas, lounge areas and art installations across the event.

Our band will take the stage and the dance floor will fill with intermingled revelers enjoying musical styles that span multiple genres and moods as the evening progresses. Top photographers and videographers will capture every angle. Wedding cakes and desserts will be taken to new levels.

At this wedding, couples get to focus on what’s important: the celebration of their commitment to each other, and a damn good time. Period.

One of attendees’ favorite aspects of the annual event is signature art, which showcases the spirit of the event. Local artist, Carrie Fell, created the featured art for Gourmet on Gore, which is a playful interpretation of the undeniable link between fine cuisine and excellent wine called “Foodies Uncorked” © 2019. This is Fell’s eighth year collaborating with Gourmet on Gore.

Though the weekend includes many opportunities to “play with your food,” Gourmet on Gore is, at its heart, an immersive tasting experience.

RIVER NORTH BREWERY’S HOP-A-TRONIC RELEASE PARTY


This Saturday, August 24th at both River North Brewery locations we will be releasing Hop-A-Tronig Lupulositor. What is this beer, you ask?! It is a New England style double IPA featuring galaxy, mosaic and citra hops. Galaxy hops provide a fruity aroma combined with the floridness of mosaic hops and more fruity characteristics from citra. This hop-forward double IPA sits at 8.3% ABV. We took lactose and more oats to create a pineapple, melon and tropical fruit style perfect for this time of year. 


Alongside our newly added Fifteener, a west coast style IPA, Mountain Haze double IPA and our classic Colorado IPA no coast style IPA, Hop-A-Tronic Lupulositor joins us for a limited time in six packs to go and on tap at both 6021 Washington Street as well as our month-old taproom at 3400 Blake Street.


River North Brewery was welcomed back into the RiNo district early July at 3400 Blake Street. With twelve taps and a seven barrel brewhouse, it is a great addition to the craft beer scene in Denver.


Join us starting at high noon Saturday, August 24th.
