Local food and drink lovin'


September is shaping up to be a busy month for food and drink events, not least because of Local Food Weekspanning the 14th through 22nd. That worthwhile annual arrangement of sustainability-minded meals and events will feature everything from an Urban Homestead Tour on the 21st and 22nd to Pikes Peak Urban Gardens' Garlic Fest, also on the 21st and the Foodopoly lecture and book signing on Sept. 19.

But outside of LFW, here's a look at some other meals you may wish to be mindful of:

• Tonight from 6 to 9 p.m., as well as during those same hours on Tues., Sept. 24 and Wed., Sept. 25, Full Circle Cuisine continues its pop-up dinner programming with seasonally and locally inspired à la carte menus: "drinks and a snack, or just dessert, order what you like." 

Chef Kevin Campbell will be joined once again by such guest chefs as the Meat Locker's Mark Henry (tonight) throughout the month. Reservations are recommended at 482-8082. Here's a look at tonight's menu:  See related PDF Full_Circle.pdf

• The Colorado Springs Independent Restaurant Cooperative hosts its next dinner at the Warehouse Restaurant & Gallery at 6 p.m. on Tues., Sept. 17. Three small plates paired with three wine or beer samplings costs $39 plus tax/tip. Here's a look at that menu: IRC.pdf

And prior to that dinner, the Warehouse will also hold its own Wines of Tuscany dinner at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 12 for $60, all inclusive. Here's a look at those five courses:  See related PDF warehouse_dinner.pdf

• At 4 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 15, The Margarita at PineCreek holds a family-style Farm to Table Harvest Dinner as a Colorado Farm and Art Market Fundraiser. There'll also be beer, wine and live music, as well as a silent auction for the $75 per-seat cost. But what gets our attention is the roasted lamb, hog and goat on display, in addition to gazpacho, ceviche and fresh salads. Call 598-8667 to reserve a space. 

• The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey holds its annual winemaker's dinner in conjunction with the Royal Gorge Route Railroad at 6:30 p.m., Friday, Sept. 27. Tickets to ride the train and enjoy an eight-course, wine-paired meal are $115, all inclusive. Call 719/276-4000 for reservations. Here's a look at the menu:  See related PDF Winery_Train.pdf
