Don't miss Vesta's 16th Annual Plates for the Peak!
With picturesque mountain views, hip award-winning restaurants, and enough festivals/things to keep you on the go, Vesta’s 16th Annual Plates for the Peak event provides an atmosphere to pause and focus on some of Denver's most in-need populations: homeless youth.
Plates for the Peak was established in 2003, by Vesta’s owner Josh Wolkon, to raise awareness and funding for long-established non-profit, Urban Peak. This is the only non-profit in Denver that specifically helps youth ages 15-24 experiencing homelessness to become self-sufficient adults, and all proceeds from this event go directly to Urban Peak.
This year's event, held on October 3rd at Vesta, will feature music by DJ Knee, one-of-a-kind silent auction items including tickets to Meow Wolf Denver Opening Night, a signed Denver Nuggets Team Basketball, Corepower Yoga Package, Icelandic Skis and more! Enjoy specialty drinks, and culinary creations expertly plated by former and current Denver chefs of Vesta, Ace Eat Serve, and Steuben's Uptown/ Steuben's Arvada.
Proceeds from this annual event benefit Urban Peak.
Vesta, named after the Roman goddess of hearth, has long been one of Denver's most revered restaurants. Not only has it garnered well-deserved acclaim from publications like 5280 Magazine, where it has won "Best Place for a First Date" seven times, Westword, where it has won, "Best Wine Bar", "Best Bartender", and "Top Ten Most Romantic Spots in Denver", Vesta also holds a spot on the Good Food 100 List—a nationwide honor only held by 100 restaurants.
