News bits

Hi all

Running a bit late on our weekly posting due to a few life issues. We will have a post up tommorow about our trip to Fruition farm. I Also wanted to say if any would like to join us at one of outings to a restaurant just drop us a line. Next month we are heading out to Cholon Bistro.

Here is a press release we were sent thought we would pass it along.


(Denver, CO) October 21, 2010 – Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery, located at 16th & Curtis in downtown Denver, will be hosting a DAY OF TIPS on Thursday, November 4, 2010. Tipped employees will be donating 100% of their tips from their shift to Rock Bottom’s Thanksgiving Gathering!

DAY OF TIPS will take place all day on Thursday, November 4th. Guests can dine for a great cause – helping to feed individuals and families in Denver’s homeless community! “We look forward to this event all year long and we work all year long to make sure the Gathering is a special day to for our guests.”, says Melanie Keller, General Manager for the downtown Denver Rock Bottom.

In addition to the DAY OF TIPS taking place, Rock Bottom will also be celebrating 19 years of Cheers that night! Their Anniversary Ale will be tapped at 6 p.m. and they will serve free pints of Anniversary Ale until 6:30 p.m.

Rock Bottom’s Thanksgiving Gathering takes place on Thanksgiving Day. The restaurant is closed to the public for the day, but their doors will be open to feed a traditional Thanksgiving meal to individuals and families in the homeless community.

Tipped employees wanted to help raise money for the Thanksgiving Gathering. While many Rock Bottom employees will also be donating their time to ensure Rock Bottom’s Thanksgiving Gathering is a success, money is also needed to purchase the many things required to make Thanksgiving a memorable day for those in the homeless community. To donate to Rock Bottom’s Thanksgiving Gathering, please call Rock Bottom at 303-534-7616 and ask to speak with Melanie Keller.

In addition to the Thanksgiving meal, gift bags will be handed out to every person who dines at Rock Bottom on Thanksgiving Day.

For questions or more information on Rock Bottom’s DAY OF TIPS, please call Melanie Keller at 303-534-7616 or Dawne Hostetter at 303-478-9671.
