It’s back, the National Association of Catering & Events Denver Chapter’s annual holiday mixer, Naughty or NACE held on Dec. 13. Attendees were encouraged to take the recently added commuter rail line to the year-old The Westin Denver International Airport for holiday cocktails, food, entertainment and the opportunity to toast the end of the year in style.

Instead of focusing on the visual presentation of food, organizers took away the sense of sight entirely, outfitting diners with a blindfold at dinner.
