Tonight, from 7 to 11 p.m. at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (1750 13th Street), hunters, gatherers, foodies, bookies and the rest of Boulder's earth muffins will converge to support the Growe Foundation, a Boulder non-profit that advocates healthy food choices for kids and teens and implements garden-to-table programs in Boulder Valley schools.
The party features music, dancing, food from Hugu Matheson, the exec chef/co-owner of The Kitchen in Boulder, libations from local breweries, wineries and distilleries and a holiday shopping bazaar that includes Colorado Organic, an all-in-one seasonally-inspired cookbook, farm-to-table reference guide and food shot porn show by Jennifer Olson, a local writer and photographer. For every book sold, Olson will donate $5 to the Growe Foundation.
The event is $75 per person, and tickets can be purchased at www.regonline.com/letitgrow.
