For the 13th year in a row, Western Colorado residents gathered at Two Rivers Convention Center to sample cuisine from the best restaurants, caterers, coffee houses, and food venues in the area, all while supporting the United Way of Mesa County. Participants were asked to vote for their favorite food venue, and the results are in!

In addition to "dancing bacon," guests had the opportunity to enjoy entrees, beverages, and desserts from dozens of popular eateries.
