Evenings in good taste

Posted By on Thu, Oct 23, 2014 at 2:34 PM

Looking ahead just a bit, here's three food and drink events worthy of your consideration:

Yobel International will be the beneficiary of An Evening In Good Taste gourmet tasting and silent auction on Saturday, Nov. 1 from 6:30 to 10 p.m. at the Warehouse Restaurant and Gallery

Samplings will come from the likes of Pikes Peak Brewing Co., Switchback Coffee Roasters, The Wild Goose Meeting House, The Principal's Office and Seeds Community Cafe. Entry costs $40, with an option to donate more and win prizes. 
 
The mission: "to alleviate extreme poverty and prevent slavery through sustainable business."
