What can be done to stop this awful, awful problem? You can start helping at Save the Ales, tonight at the Skylark Lounge, 140 South Broadway. Make a donation at the door (suggested donation levels include saving a pint for $8, a six-pack for $50 or a keg for $100), then pay a mere $2 a pint inside to imbibe brews by Left Hand, Avery and other small breweries. The Mathematically Challenged Quartet (followed by a secret headlining band) will kick off the evening with songs written just for Save the Ales, such as a love song to Elizabeth Kucinich and a parody of a John Denver favorite, renamed Thank God Im a Liberal. Proceeds benefit Drinking Liberally and Environment Colorado, so strike a blow against global warming and get tipsy. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for information.
