Ballots, Beer, and Bagpipes

You have two chances to watch Iron Jawed Angels at the library today–once at 11:15 and once at 2:30PM.   The Golden Votes party starts at 1, in the parking lot west of the library, and the parade over to the ballot box at City Hall starts at 2.  This is your chance to vote for City Council, the Library’s request for funding, and the school board recall.

Don’t complain about government–VOTE!

ChiliFest at Golden City Brewery and PangeaAfter you’ve voted go enjoy a well-deserved pint (or two!) at Golden City Brewery.  They’re hosting a Chilifest, with proceeds going to benefit Annual fundraiser for the food bank at the Golden Christian Action Guild.

Pangea Coffee Roasters will be joining them in this event, the chilis will be split between the two locations (which are right across the street from each other). Pangea will be accepting $10 donations for a printed coffee mug, with a coffee beverage, and the Brewery will be doing their usual printed pint glass with beer for $10 donation to the Christian Action Guild.

They are committed to raising enough money for the CAG to purchase a double wide reach in fridge so they can store cold items, like milk.  The Chilifest starts at noon.  Be aware that they often sell out of glasses.  This is a perfect opportunity to drink in the middle of the day and feel righteous about it!

piperIf you like bagpipes, plan to spend the evening at the Jefferson Unitarian Church, where they’re hosting a Fall Ceilidh.  They’ll have music, dance, Boulder Beer, food from Pasty Republic, and lots of kilts and bagpipes!  The Colorado Youth Pipe Band and Highland Dancers will be there, as well as the Queen City Pipe Band, Centennial Pipe Band, and lots of other Celtic Performers.  A portion of the proceeds goes to support the Colorado Youth Pipe Band.  The party runs from 6-10.  Tickets are $15 for adults, $5 for children 5-12, and free for kids under 5.  Buy tickets online or at the door.
