We would love to meet and welcome you!

  • Pride Month Queer and Veg Night

    Edgewater Public Market

    Happy Pride Month! Veg/ans who are in the LGBT+ community please come through! This is the seventh Queer and Veg Edgewater Public Market Meetup. Hopefully we can sit outside weather pending.
    We will grab a table or two, chat, eat, drink, and find community. Gladys and Meta Burger are two fully vegan eateries, plus other cafes have vegan options. There’s free parking on site, a bar, and other shops. I’ll put white “Denver Vegan” signs on the tables and I will write a description of where we are sitting when I get there. This is food court seating so drop in whenever. Please update your RSVP if something comes up. It helps us if we have an accurate headcount for reserving tables.

    You can message me privately if you’re nervous to go or have questions ok anxiety fam I GOT YOU

    The Ministry for the Future is a masterpiece of the imagination, using fictional eyewitness accounts to tell the story of how climate change will affect us all. Its setting is not a desolate, post-apocalyptic world, but a future that is almost upon us. Chosen by Barack Obama as one of his favorite books of the year, this extraordinary novel from visionary science fiction writer Kim Stanley Robinson will change the way you think about the climate crisis.

    "If I could get policymakers, and citizens, everywhere to read just one book this year, it would be Kim Stanley Robinson’s The Ministry for the Future." —Ezra Klein (Vox)

    "One hopes that this book is read widely—that Robinson’s audience, already large, grows by an order of magnitude. Because the point of his books is to fire the imagination."―New York Review of Books

    "If there’s any book that hit me hard this year, it was Kim Stanley Robinson’s The Ministry for the Future, a sweeping epic about climate change and humanity’s efforts to try and turn the tide before it’s too late." ―Polygon (Best of the Year)
