FACES held the 6th Annual Grapes Against Wrath at the University of Denver’s Fritz Knoebel School of Hospitality Management on Friday evening. The event occurred in the beautiful Tuscan Wine cellar at the Hospitality school, which is one of the few hospitality schools in the world housed within a business school.

It was an evening of wine testing, food, and music and a silent auction. The guests enjoyed fine wines, appetizers and cooking, and dessert by Denver’s top chefs from Nova Catering, Lola, City Bakery, Jax Fish House and Oyster Bar of Glendale, Morton’s The Steakhouse, Linger, Knoebel Events, Mile High Spirits, Root Dawn and The Vineyard Wine Shop. Dave Devine on guitar and Jean-Luc Davis on upright bass provided acoustic jazz music.
