From a reader:
“I wonder if you would be willing to post some information about this great fundraising auction for Street Sense that just happens to be the same night as the VP debate. Tons of folks are planning to watch the debates, I know, but the auction starts at 7, so people could swing by on their way to watching the debate and place a few bids. We’ll let them know if their bids carry the day. It is a great cause, and the support would be greatly appreciated.
I’ve been telling friends that if they attend and watch the debate later, they can consider their DVR fees to be a benevolent expense.
The event is in our neighborhood at the Josephine Butler Park Center, just across from Meridian Hill / Malcolm X Park.”
Sadly/happily I’ll be attending the Jenny Lewis concert at the 6th and I Synagogue but if you are looking for a spot to watch the VP debate – in addition to Red Derby and Red Rocks you can also catch it at Haydee’s in Mt. Pleasant. Mt. P ANCs will also be present. More details about the Haydee’s event after the jump.
