Pardon us! Hunger protest outside Tony's Market
Aubrey Shomo is staging a one-week hunger protest right outside Tony's Market at 950 Broadway -- but she doesn't have a beef with Tony's. Rather, she wants to get the attention of Mark Noel, clemency director for the State of Colorado, whose office is right above Tony's.
Since she has all the required permits to pitch her tent on Broadway for a week, Tony's has decided to welcome her as a neighbor -- even if she won't be shopping in the store. (She's on a hunger strike, after all.) "I just want her to have a peaceful protest," says store manager Stuart Stevenson.
Shomo gets out of her tent on Monday afternoon.
