Robert and I are heading off this evening for an open house at a new bartending school, Estrela. I admit I never considered how folks learned mixology, but now I have a chance to learn! I'll share my new knowledge soon!
Also, my friend, Jackie, has another one of her great cheese events coming up. Keepin' it Local (A Colorado Wine & Colorado Cheese Event) is scheduled for Tuesday, July 21st 5:30 – 8:00 p.m., at Embassy Suites Denver Tech Center, 10250 East Costilla Avenue, Centennial. Paul Bonacquisti of Bonacquisti Wine Company – a Denver winery – will walk us through several pairings of his creations with Colorado artisan cheeses. The cost is small -- $10 (and this includes a $5 donation to Food Bank of the Rockies!) Call Jackie at 720.220.3210 for more information and to reserve your seat.
I'm an active volunteer at Covenant Cupboard, a food pantry that is a coalition of three different churches -- Covenant Presbyterian, Good Shepherd Episcopal, and St. Peter Lutheran. We get food through the Food Bank of the Rockies, so I'm up for supporting them, especially when it involves wine and cheese!
A sneak peak! I heard from some 9Cares, Colorado Shares folks that there will be a pet related event coming up that may involved reduced cost vet services among other things and will follow the 9Cares, Colorado Shares model. I don't have details, but I will pass along info as I receive it.
