HotCakes Diner 1400 East 18th Avenue 5 to 9 p.m. (after party at Rockbar) Donation suggested (in addition to meal price)

Monday, May 14 Jacques Pepin and Barbara Kingsolver Okay, this has nothing to do with fashion, but the man who put up with Julia Child – in good humor, no less – is here in D-town on the same day as Barbara “Mandatory Reading List” Kingsolver. This is some wacky star alignment that Cat fully approves of. She loves them both.

Pepin is at a bunch of events throughout the day (his daughter, Claudine, lives here), but he’ll be at the Tattered Cover on Colfax at 2 p.m. For his full schedule, click here.

Kingsolver is in town stumping for her new memoir Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life. She’ll be at the LoDo Tattered Cover at 7:30 p.m. Plan on arriving around 6:30 p.m. to collect your free ticket since there is limited space.

Happy, happy, joy, joy!!
