Former New York City mayor and current GOP presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani is headed to Denver for a visit. Fans and supporters can meet the potential president at a party June 9 for the low, low price of $1,000. If mingling at the party isn’t exciting enough, you can get a picture with the candidate for just $2,300, or sit down at a roundtable before the main event for a mere $4,600. With prices like these, who can resist? But wait, there’s more!
Denver Post columnist Bill Husted, who leads off today’s column with the item, notes that none other than local deity John Elway will be in attendance. Even political know-nothings can’t pass up the opportunity to jostle elbows with the Greatest Denverite of All Time. Not to mention, if you can manage to swipe his drinking glass, cocktail napkin or anything else with a trace of Elway on it, you could easily eBay it to recoup the admission fee. -- Cory Casciato
