The Eight Best Events on the Culinary Calendar This Week

Thursday, August 16
Korean barbecue is stale and dated; enter Korean Barbie Q. How can we explain the emergence of the restaurant, bar and art show mashup that relies heavily on the idea of dismembered doll parts? Better just to give yourself over to the experience and not try too hard to make sense of it all. The installation kicks off on Thursday, August 16, at 7 p.m. (additional dinners will be held August 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25) at 1414 Larimer Street, where $75 will get you pork belly saam and kimchi; Korean barbecue brisket, slaw and pancakes; and gochujang frog legs from Injoi Korean Kitchen's Bill Espiricueta. Four cocktails from El Five's Shawn Campbell are included in the ticket price, as well as art, live music and ample opportunities for weirdness. Get your tickets at and don't ask too many questions.
