Andrew’s 300th Meal at Casa Bonita Fundraiser/Party!

I have been going to Casa Bonita my whole life and the next visit will be my 300th! I celebrated with a huge event in conjunction with Casa Bonita as a fundraiser.
We raised $1800 for the Mariposa neighborhood’s Food Bridge International Marketplace.

The date was Sunday, February 24th from Noon to 7 p.m. and was be in conjunction with the
NEXT Gallery Pretty in Pink group art show – celebrating all things Casa Bonita (2nd year in a row!)

We took over the Magic Show Theater all day with awesome things on the stage, including Mentalist Magician: Miss Claire Voyant!
I got to participate in gunfights with Black Bart and there were puppet shows featuring a puppet of me! I also crafted an amazing scavenger hunt!
All sorts of custom collectibles for the event were made and I even re-designed the old “floaty” cliff diver pens they used to have!
Special menu options for this event: Andrew’s Deluxe Dinner, sopaipilla toppings bar (first time ever) and Andrew’s Neapolitan Bandito! (chocolate/strawberry/whipped-cream)
Andrew’s Deluxe Dinner: One crispy chile relleno, a taco, two cheese enchiladas, lettuce, tomatoes, guacamole, beans and rice. (Free refills on everything but relleno)

Punk scouts is a group of adults and children who do many traditional scouting activities but minus the gendered activities and nationalism. It is based on
They do activities to earn rad badges and they have asked me to mentor them with a pop-up food event.

LINK to Fight Fear

Several of us are sickened to hear about the almost daily terror attacks, and that people are scared to leave the house, or glued to the TV, while the news repeats the same things over and over. Artists, performers and other creatives have always been at the forefront in trying to get people out and active. I am helping some friends activate this with some upcoming events n town, and a bigger movement as well.
December 11-13 there will be several events around 13th and Sherman in Denver. On Friday, 12/11, starting a 6 p.m. a CHAIN LINK fence will be erected outside City O’City, so that people can use it as an active memorial for those injured or killed in recent terrorist acts – across the world, and in our own back yards. This will be up all weekend – so bring out something to pou on the fence and lets link our support of those around the world.
Sunday, 12/13 from 2-10 p.m. at Deer Pile (upstairs from City O’City) will have performers, musicians and more to share their talents in the name of fighting fear.
So far Cristofer Lix, Whitney Rehr, Roseanna Frechette and the bands Firstimers and also Dr Death + Mr Vile are confirmed!
