If You Want

Boy oh boy, those folks at Cooking Light are getting clever in their marketing.
Here is the deal. Thursday April 27, 2006 at the Grand Hyatt Capitol Peak Ballroom in Denver (1750 Welton St.) 5:30pm
There will be a cooking "experience" in which you can pay $50 to explore the realm of indian cooking - you will sample Indian curries, explore wine pairings, and learn simple cooking techniques using spices.

I think this is a swell idea. Those boogers are figuring out where they have large pockets of readers and then customizing events in their area. Of course Denver is a large market - we are a bunch of Bo-Bo's. I love this term. It means Bohemian Bourgeoisie. Essentially we are a bunch of overpaid creative culturals who think we are hippies but really we are yuppies. We hide our yuppie ways under "cultural and environmental" purchases and choices. So, give us the chance to spend way too much money to enlighten ourselves and appear to be interested in the world around us without leaving our zip code . . . heck yeah. We're there. I don't mean "we're" there. "We" actually won't be going because I can't stand curry. Sorry. I would love to be the kind of person who likes Indian food. I would also like to be the kind of person who runs marathons but that ain't gonna happen either.

But, I think it is a neat thing. So, if you live in Denver and have $50 to spend on curry and wine . . . Knock yourself out! The 50 bucks gets you the tastings, demos, and a four course meal with wine pairings.

Oh yeah. You have to rsvp and buy your ticket ahead of time. 1-800-366-4712 ext. 8551
