Animal Dreams

If you’ve been lying awake at night thinking desperately about how to save helpless Gulf seabirds covered in goo, you’re not alone. But thanks to fellow worrier and block organizer Robin Lohre of the Talulah Jones boutique, 1122 East 17th Avenue, you can now contribute in a small but certain way on the local level during tonight’s Shop and Eat on 17th Avenue event.

Brought to you by Lohre and a bunch of like-minded businesses along the avenue in the Uptown district beginning at 5 p.m., Talulah and friends — including Babylon Floral, Peppermint, Soul Haus, Strings, Olivea and Hamburger Mary's — will throw in a percentage of the evening’s sales and tickets to benefit the National Wildlife Federation; in addition, Baer-Simon Photography will host a photo booth. Stop by Talulah’s to shop through 8 p.m.; other venues, and especially the restaurants, will continue fundraising until individual closing times.

For information, call 303-832-1230.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
