Join Us for a Night Out at the Museum to Support Restaurant Workers!


Sold Out!


Drink Red Wear Red is a fabulous, in-person, outdoor and socially distanced, appreciation event which raises funds to support the restaurant and hospitality employees that have been so hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. Proceeds from the event will benefit the Colorado Restaurant Association’s Mile High Chapter Hardship Fund and the Colorado Restaurant Foundation, both of which provide emergency grants to industry employees in need.

The event is open to the restaurant industry and the public. All are welcome! After the crisis of the past year, the wonderful people in Colorado’s restaurant community need a night where we celebrate them. We encourage the entire Denver community to come out to recognize the people behind their favorite restaurants and kick off what’s shaping up to be a comeback summer.

A VIP reception starting at 5:30 p.m. will take place on the museum’s gorgeous terrace and will feature bites from Denver’s most distinguished restaurants, reserve wine selections, and a million-dollar view of the Denver skyline -- all for $125.

Attendees will be able to gather al fresco on the museum’s airy patio and even wander the halls of the museum, including the dazzling Coors Hall of Gems and Minerals. The main event features more than a dozen Denver restaurants, wine and cocktails from Republic National Distributing Company, an auction of exclusive dining and drinking experiences, and live music.  If you would like to see the auction items ahead of time you can do that HERE.
