86'd: A cooking competition at Four by Brother Luck 

Chef Brother Luck, chef/owner at Four by Brother Luck, launched a new series of cooking competitions in his kitchen on Thursday, Aug. 31, dubbed 86'd. Luck considers this competition the first of many to come — he's putting together a bracket of local chefs he hopes to pit against one another, with the overall winner taking home some sort of prize. Further, he hopes to feature local chefs who don't get as much attention in town — the up-and-coming chefs who have reputations to build. The first iteration saw Evan Neece of Cowboy Star pitted against Charlie Dolan of Cañon City's Pizza Madness. Neece scored a narrow victory, impressing Luck as well as judges Tara Juarros and Scott Batley, both of whom were pulled from the audience.
