This past Monday, the Denver Art Museum hosted the Colorado Meetings + Events 2013 Best Of Awards, which are a peer-voted recognition of the local industry.
View this full list of winners and you'll see that our famed hotel won for "Best Hotel or Resort with Meeting/Event Space Outside Denver Metro." And the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo earned awards for "Best Attraction Outside Denver Metro Area" and "Best Caterer Outside Denver Metro" for Taste of the Wild Catering.
That win for Zoo chef Nathan Dirnberger comes on the heels of Taste of the Wild Catering winning first place in the appetizer category at the recent Colorado Springs Choral Chefs' Gala, as well as Dirnberger earning the American Culinary Federation Pikes Peak Chapter President's Award "for dedicated service above and beyond" in 2012.
Congrats to both organizations, which are obvious anchor points to our city and clearly recognized beyond its physical bounds.
