Out in the real world, "there ain't so such thing as a free lunch," but don't tell that to Denver City Council. Mayor Hickenlooper has asked every department in city government to reduce their budgets by ten percent. City Council has only been able to find a 4 percent savings. If they can't save money, then they're going to have to make it. And, there's no better way to earn quick cash than selling collectible "vintage" lunchboxes on eBay. Imagine the themes...

District 9 City Councilwoman Judy Montero, District 3 Councilman Paul Lopez and District 8 City Councilwoman Carla Madison could sing their ways into our hearts with their City Council Musical lunchbox.
It would be impossible to resist the purchase of a lunchbox featuring the Council Queen...
She may lose the vote for City Council President to Chris Neavitt, but in our hearts, District 5 City Councilwoman Marcia Johnson will always be our Council Queen.
