Earthquakes and Beer

Golden Beer Talks - Golden Colorado

Tomorrow night’s Golden Beer Talk with feature Dan MacNamara of the U.S. Geological Survey.  People will start gathering at Windy Saddle Cafe at 6.  Windy Saddle will have dinner available for sale.  This month’s featured beers will come from Golden City Brewery.  Dan’s talk will begin at about 6:35.

Learn about how the United States Geologic Survey forecasts potential earthquake hazard and impact. With an emphasis on recent human-caused quakes, this talk will provide a brief history of this phenomena, discuss Colorado’s scientific role and finish with a focus on recent quake activity in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas.

Golden Beer Talks is a homegrown endeavor organized by a few local citizens passionate about nurturing community connections, supporting local businesses, and learning a little something new now and then.

As mentioned yesterday, the developer who wanted to build a 44 unit mixed-income housing development at 24th and Ford is back in town, and will be meeting with the GURA board tonight.  He will be discussing a new, larger project in the same area.  If you’re interested in the details, you can attend the GURA meeting in City Council chambers at 6:30 or watch it live on cable TV or through the City website.
