Elway on the 50-year line

John Elway celebrates his 50th birthday this month — with a party for you and a party for him.

His birthday is June 28 — but we hear he's throwing a VIP bash June 19 at the Soiled Dove Underground, underneath the Tavern at Lowry. The date is early because Rascal Flatts, the hot country trio, will perform and that's the slot the band had open.

Elway's Cherry Creek chef Tyler Wiard will cook for the Dove crowd — and it might include Elway's favorite meal at Elway's: John's salad, bone-in prime rib-eye steak or salmon, a glass of Hideaway Creek cab, creamed corn and a Ding Dong. Both Elway's outlets — in Cherry Creek and at the Ritz-Carlton — will serve it up this month for $50.

Elway will also visit each location five times during the month — with a football. He'll toss it out and then sign it for the guest who catches it.
