    "FREE" Lunch Next Tuesday for Five Lucky Slice Readers!

    Help the Orchestra Help Haiti this Sunday at the Wynkoop!

    This Sunday, January 24, join us at the Wynkoop Brewery for a very special monthly concert with the Denver Mandolin Orchestra. This month’s program features the Hoagies, the orchestra’s popular ensemble group specializing in sweet sounds from the greats of  the mid-20th century. Boy, that sounds like a long time ago! The concert, at 7:00 p.m., is FREE, of course. But, this month the group is asking for your help and your generosity in raising funds for relief work in Haiti. Donations will be sent to Doctors Without Borders, extremely busy there now. Good cause, good food, good beer and great music from the Hoagies!
