We’re pleased to be a part of the inaugural dinner of Colorado Governor elect, John Hickenlooper, in Denver on January 11th.
Last summer, I was standing in our booth at the Crested butte Farmers Market when then mayor and gubernatorial candidate, John Hickenlooper, walked up to the booth and introduced himself. Of course I recognized him right away and introduced myself. We talked for quite a while and I was impressed with his understanding of Colorado’s rural issues, and thoroughly enjoyed our conversation.
I fully appreciated the amount of time he spent talking to me, and told him that he already had my vote, and didn’t have to say anything to sway me in his favor. When we said our goodbyes he told me that if he won the election he would serve our beef at his inaugural dinner.
Well, he stayed true to his word, and today we are delivering 184 pounds of Diamond F Brand Beef Brisket to Denver for the dinner on the 11th.
Keeping it Colorado
In the interest of frugality, the Governor and Lieutenant Governor will not be having a fancy and expensive sit down dinner in a hotel ballroom. Instead, Colorado BBQ Beef Brisket and green chile mac & cheese will be featured in conjunction with Colorado beer (If you can imagine) at the Fillmore Auditorium. Leave the tuxes and evening gowns at home.
Tickets to the dinner are $100 each and after the costs for the dinner are paid, the remainder will go to selected charities.
I am really looking forward to this new governor’s administration. I think he was a great mayor of Denver, and think he will make a great governor.
