Local Author Happy Hour: Alice Borodkin, John A. Daly and Johnny Welsh
BookBar
5 to 6 p.m. Saturday, February 13

BookBar’s monthly second Saturday happy hour showcases local authors in the best way possible — over half-price drinks from the unique Tennyson Street book store’s namesake bar. In February, you can hobnob with former Colorado State Representative Alice Borodkin (Caught Between the Bettys), who tells the story of her rise in politics out of a period bookended by the influences of Betty Crocker and Betty Friedan; thriller-writer John A. Daly, who will introduce his latest Colorado-based Sean Coleman page-turner, Blood Trade; and Johnny Welsh, a high country bartender, whose Weedgalized in Colorado is an insider look at the local weed industry.
