The early birds catch Harry Smith at Racines

By this morning, most of the big names from the Democratic National Convention, Hollywood and the traveling press will have packed up their bags and headed for home (or the Twin Cities for the Republican National Convention). But for those of you who just aren’t quite ready to let it go, you’ve got one more shot.

The Early Show will be taping live this morning 5-7 a.m.at Racines (650 Sherman Street). And while we can’t promise that this will be a star-studded event, seeing former Denverite Harry Smith and Julie Chen right here in Denver is still better than just watching them on the TV. What’s more, the first fifty people through the doors will be getting a free breakfast, courtesy of Racines — CBS staff not included. -- Jason Sheehan
