Today's featured event: Ante up for SAME Café at charity poker tournament tonight
You can bet on SAME Café tonight.
Ever since the Westword cover story on the SAME Café hit the stands last week, the non-profit restaurant reports that larger crowds of customers have been coming through the doors to pay what they want for food.
So now is a great time to support Libby and Brad Birky's feed-the-masses mission by signing up for the SAME Café Ante-Up Charity Poker Tournament tonight at the Cap City Tavern -- an event that's guaranteed not to land participants on the front page of the Denver Post, as happened to some Denver celebs who used to cut loose at a just-shuttered illegal gambling club. Players get a chance at winning prizes like dinner at Osteria Marco, a night at the Magnolia Hotel, a new cruiser or -- drum roll -- New Belgium beer for a year.
That's right: 365 days of Fat Tire, Sunshine Wheat and Mothership Wit. It's like a drink-what-you-want thing to help the pay-what-you-want thing. Nice.
