Beef: It's what's for lunch at the Capitol

Rural Colorado is coming to the Capitol today for Southeast Colorado Appreciation Day, and giving Denver a real taste of the area with a hamburger fry.

The grill on the east lawn of the Capitol will be turning out burgers from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, while the Koshare Indian Dancers and musician/rancher/state rep Wes McKinley perform.

Who says there's no free lunch?
