Despite what the title of this Gastro installment implies, this is not an evening dedicated to reheating last night's meal in the microwave. Rather, it will focus on little loves, a.k.a. the small plate. The local chef this time will be Doug Flicker from Piccolo. On his menu tonight will be smoked sturgeon and a pork meatball tasty enough to eat without spaghetti. The brewers will be Eric Wallace and Mike Walters of Colorado's Left Hand Brewing. Dessert will be cupcakes by Sheela Namakkal of Cake Eater Bakery. As usual, guests can sample hoppy amber ale home brew created at the last party from Northern Brewers. The evening concludes with musical sets by Montana punk rockers Noise Noise Noise, hip-hop duo Unknown Prophets, rockabilly group Bitch N' Brown, and Bella Koshka. 21+.
