This year's holiday meals have gone to the birds—the chicken, duck, and turkey, that is. Join butcher Mark DeNittis (pictured) for a how-to on making the perfect, elusive turducken. After DeNittis lets you in on his deboning and stuffing tips, you'll get to take your bird home for a convenient—and delicious—dinner. Reserve your turducken in advance with Tentiko.

An unlikely pair—Luca D'Italia's Hunter Pritchett and Star Bar's Justin Lloyd—join forces for a seven-course feast. Hosted in one of Denver's favorite dive bars, Pritchett prepares an inventive menu while Lloyd thoughtfully pairs each course with craft brews or beer-based cocktails. Start the evening off with a beer-based punch followed by courses such as tartare of venison with horseradish and beef tendon paired with a Avery Brewing Company's Tsar Stout and Leopold Bros.-infused cocktail. Sun 6 p.m.
