This Just In: Free Veggies from CSA/Grant Family Farms

Farm Fresh City cooking demos begin 7/9

It's true: Grant Family Farms is bringing two share boxes of veggies to our cooking demo "What the hell is this?" -- and you could take one home. Eligibility? Just be in the audience! And Chef Kark is making Lettuce Wraps and Red Curry for you to sample.
Central Library, Level B2 Conference Center, 1:30 p.m.

Farm Fresh City

The farm is at your fingertips with Community Supported Agriculture.

Are you guilty of filling your fridge crisper with veggies and then ignoring them until they’re well-past their use-by date? Our Chef Shellie Kark, from KitchenCue, has teamed up with our friends at Whole Foods Market and the dedicated farmers from Grant Family Farms for a cooking demo series to inspire you to seek out the best produce for your table.

 Fresh City Life is Denver's best date night!

 Since 2004, Fresh City Life events and programs have offered many ways to become acquainted with Denver's vibrant and intellectual organizations, groups and individuals. One of the comments that I hear most often from people after attending an event is (and I'm paraphrasing), "Thanks for giving me the opportunity to spend time with my community." 

The Year of the Stag

 "You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go." - Dr. Seuss

Save room for a Sundae on Friday: Butter Pecan Sundaes with Salted Caramel Sauce

Helliemae's Salt Caramel Sauce

"Do you want some of this?" -- Little Edie (offering butter pecan ice cream to her mother), Grey Gardens

 If you've seen the documentary Grey Gardens, then you know there are several scenes that revolve around food. And if you count scenes of raccoons in the attic, there are even more. 

Go Granny Go: Crocheted squares are hip again

Granny Squares are a crocheter's passport to 1970s boho-chic!

It turns out that making granny squares can be a little addictive. They're fast and fun to crochet -- so the squares start to pile up quickly. There are endless color and yarn weight combinations -- so they can be simple or complex, and can incorporate easy or challenging color combinations. And crocheting is very portable -- so it's easy to throw a project in a bag and head out the door.

The Play's the Thing

FCL Event

Cheaper, faster, more fun than Shakespeare!

In March of this year, stage director and producer, Brenda Cook Ritenour, launched OFF THE SHELF, a play-reading series designed to breathe life into plays that are produced rarely, if ever, in Denver. This month, Ritenour teams up with ArtSkool, (Fresh City Life's newest community event centered on the visual and performing arts of Denver) to bring you two exciting events!

The Game Night formerly known as WordNerds

Taboo

You say you're not a player? We think you are.

Fresh City Life has been presenting a monthly game night for a year or so; it's been perking along under the name WordNerds and drawing happy crowds to Mad Wine and Novo Coffee (our partners in this gathering for game players).
