Miss Phoebe Reese Guest Blogs For Fresh City Life

Backstage at Curious Theatre, Phoebe poses with a young fan.

While Chris Loffelmacher attends the International Cultural Programming Symposium in Cleveland, his friend, Phoebe Reese (entertainer, party hostess and self-proclaimed celebrity), will be filling in and sending you up-to-the-minute blogs on what's happening at Fresh City Life:

 Hello My Little Pumpkins!

I'm commandeering Chris' blog for a couple weeks while he takes in all the cultural offerings in Cleveland. Chris and I go way back, we grew up together in North Dakota and then met again years later while my star was rising in San Francisco. He was a clerk in a gift shop -- and though we were an unlikely pair, we became fast friends. My star never stopped rising...and now I believe Chris is a clerk of some kind at the library...so we've both come a long way.

Denver's Mobile Food Trucks Doing Their Part For Fashion

Three of Denver's favorite mobile food vendors will be on hand to celebrate Frock Out.

There is already a lot of buzz around this year's design competition, Frock Out. It is quickly becoming the defining example of a 'top-heavy' event. Since its theme works well with the notion of a three-ring circus at the county fairgrounds, we thought a little gilding of the lily was in order.

Bette Davis Film Causes Spontaneous Kindness*

A recent, wholly unscientific study shows that 9 out of 10 acts of kindness can lead to a chain reaction of kindnesses. Even Bette Davis films can cause random acts of kindness. Witness:

On Tuesday, November 16, the Crossroads Theatre, in partnership with Fresh City Life, will be hosting a free film night. It's our monthly KnitFlix, so we'll have an area for knitters with good light, but we're also inviting non-crafters to join us for this film showing. And we're asking everyone to bring a food item or toiletries for donation to Urban Peak, the orgnaization that helps homeless youth and youth at risk of being homeless.
