SUNDAY, 8/12 from 2-9PM -> Luau Goodness w/DJ Low Key, Kid Hum & DJ Wushu + special Hawaiian-inspired El Chingon tacos & more on the Meadowlark’s patio…


SUNDAY, 8/12 from 2-9PM -> Last week was the busiest yet (check the pic below) and the rave reviews keep coming in about how great the vibe at Goodness is, with everyone from randoms who lucked out and found us to Denver culture blogs to die-hard music heads saying it’s their favorite party of the Summer.  This week we’re back at it a with a Hawaiian twist.  Now I’m gonna be honest, my original plan, back before we partnered with El Chingon, was to have a pig roast and luau on 8/12.  I clung on to that idea as things got more and more complicated while trying to make it happen and ultimately, I had steer away from the idea when we learned that due to health code regulations, we wouldn’t be able to roast the pig on-site.  Never one to be held down, I worked with El Chingon’s Chef David Lopez to put together some delicious Hawaiian-inspired taco specials, along with pineapple and mango agua frescas, which is probably the next best thing to a pig roast in keeping with the Hawaiiian theme (and it also doesn’t scare vegetarians quite like a roasted pig’s head…LOL).

Beyond the Hawaiian food and drinks, I’ll be joined on your afternoon’s soundtrack by two very dope cats who I’ve never really had a chance to rock with, but always wanted to; DJ Wushu (Bass Crooks) & Kid Hum (Fossil Fuel Music).  Also, in keeping with the Hawaiian theme, we’re gonna give $25 in tacos and drinks to the person with the best Hawaiian shirt on, so come dressed proper and end up full with a nice buzz on us.  The misters will be keeping us refreshed, the music will be beautiful & the vibe bordering magic on the Meadowlark’s beautiful patio (2701 Larimer St), so come join us.  21+/No Cover.

El Chingon Mexican Bistro x Goodness Menu for Sunday, 7/8/12 at the Meadowlark…Tacos De Pato is the special this week, Camarones Chingones are back & a new vegetarian option!

Menu for SUNDAY, 7/8 -> I said it before and I’ll say it again, Goodness teaming up with El Chingon is an epic food win for everybody involved.  At our first party together last month, Chef David Lopez (aka DJ Psycho) and crew sold a few hundred tacos on the Meadowlark’s patio (2701 Larimer St), adding a ton of new fans to the Cult of Chingon and taking the party to the next level.  This week’s menu subs in the wildly popular Camarones Chingones (jumbo shrimp) tacos for Carne Molida (ground beef) tacos as a permanent menu item, adds a vegetarian option with the Tacos Fresco and features Tacos De Pato (roasted duck!!!) as the special.  After inhaling a pair of delicious Carnitas Tacos and a pair of excellent Camarones Chingones Tacos last time around, I can’t wait wait to try the rest of the menu and start picking favorites.
