Politics with a side of BBQ! Join gubernatorial candidates in COS this weekend
Make politics fun again?
Our news partners at The Gazette, teaming up with Colorado Politics and El Pomar's Forum for Civic Advancement, want to try!
Drawing inspiration from a centuries-old Swiss tradition, The Gazette, Colorado Politics and El Pomar are launching their first annual Colorado Civic Barbecue Saturday.
The idea is to give political opponents and the citizens they hope to govern a chance to break bread together in between debates.
Leave the swords at home, but otherwise those behind the barbecue hope to match our high-altitude cousins in merriment! The barbecue will boast bluegrass music, delicious food, and a chance to rub elbows with gubernatorial candidates. The barbecue will be sandwiched in between a Republican primary debate in the morning and a Democratic primary debate in the afternoon.
The event is free and open to the public. It will be held at the Garden Pavilion at Penrose House on 1661 Mesa Ave. For all the details,
The Republican debate starts at 11 a.m. and the Democratic debate at 1:45 p.m.
