Big Week: Ignite Fort Collins, Beet Street’s Battle of the Burners, and Spring Creek Gardens Harvest Festival

This week I’m super excited to be part of 2 awesome local events here in Fort Collins.

First up, tonight (9.22.10) I’ll be doing my first “Spark” at Ignite Fort Collins.  Never been to an Ignite?  You can learn more about it here.  My topic:  How Kale Can Save the World.  No big surprise, I know.

Then this Saturday (9.25.2010), I’ve had the honor incredible fortune and dumb luck of being asked to participate as a judge in Beet Street’s inaugural Battle of the Burners.

6 local chefs will be competing in an Iron Chef style event, where myself and several others (including the lovely Kristin from Feasting Fort Collins), will be judging to decide who’s cuisine reigns supreme.  It’s going to be a great night out and there are still tickets available here.  I’ll be doing my best to refrain from yelling out “needs more kale” on regular intervals.  But who knows, maybe they’ll be into that sort of thing.

Lastly, I want to mention also this Saturday is the Gardens on Spring Creek’s Harvest Festival.  Admission is cheap (Suggested donation only $4!) and they have a great selection of workshops, contests, and fun activities happening for the entire family.  More details are available here.   The Gardens do incredible work in our community, have big plans for the future, and just opened a spectacular new outdoor  kitchen.  Stop by and support them!

Do you know of something awesome happening soon?  Leave a comment and I’ll be sure to add it on!
