  1. Coffee Cook-off
    • 12/10/11, Saturday, 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
    • Red Frog Coffee, Longmont, CO
    • Inside the shop

    Everyone has heard of a “chili cook-off” but have you heard of a “coffee cook-off”? Red Frog Coffee is hosting our second annual “Coffee Cook-off” due to the great response we had last year!

    Place: Red Frog Coffee
    Time: 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
    Date: Saturday, December 10

    What is it? A cooking/baking contest in which coffee must be used in the recipe in some fashion of your choosing. The coffee can be in the form of espresso, drip coffee, coffee beans, or coffee grounds but coffee MUST be in the food you prepare. Red Frog will provide up to a certain amount of the kind of coffee you need.

    The different dishes and concoctions will be judged by those daring enough to try them! The first, second, and third place winners will receive a stellar prize from Red Frog Coffee. Think of it in potluck terms and bring enough to share with the others.

    If you run a food business and want to enter your product, that’s fine but please know that we won’t allow commercial promotion during the event. We’re hosting a small, hometown family gathering. We offer platforms for selling products in our shop at other times, but this is not one of those times. So, if you try promoting and selling your entry at the event, our giant bullfrog bouncer will escort you to the patio and drop-kick you into the swamp! Let us know if you’d like to set up a different event that will enable you to present and sell your goods.

    We’re looking forward to a fun cook-off! Start your planning now!

  1. Artist Reception for Sideview Photography
    • 11/11/11, Friday, 5:00pm – 7:00pm
    • Red Frog Coffee, Longmont, CO
    • Inside the shop

    “A midwestern view on the rest of the world,” is one way to describe photographer Kimberly Foster. Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Kim’s interest in photography stemmed from 4-H, a Polaroid camera, and the imagination of a 6-year-old. Since then, Kim has toted a camera to take pictures from the backyard to places such as Europe, Alaska, Washington, DC, and Colorado.

    Kim and her midwestern roots moved to Colorado in 2004 for work at CU-Boulder. With a playground like Colorado, the photography passion continued to grow. Two years ago, her husband decided it was time to push that dream to reality and started giving Birthday/Christmas gifts that led to the pictures you see today.

    The idea for Sideview Photography comes from the “Sideview” series that boasts the beauty behind you, rather than in front of you. You can find Kim’s photos hanging on the wall, or as stationery and holiday cards. Sideview Photography will also work with you to customize an order. Find her on Facebook, sideviewphoto@gmail.com, or by calling 303.881.5924.

    In his own words: “Years ago I found two things I love to do more than anything: travel and sing. Nowadays I’ve been called a modern day troubadour or traveling musician. I’ve been moving around on the magic carpet of music for over 13 years now, learning everyday about myself, music and life!

    “One of my favorite ways of traveling is to pack a small bag of clothes, my travel-size guitar and amp, and hit the road with ‘making music’ as the plan. I normally pick up gigs along the way. Sometimes in pubs, restaurants, weddings, clubs, parties, and my favorite — the streets (busking!… some of the best mini concerts I’ve ever had!). Some of the countries I’ve performed in are Japan, Thailand, Cambodia, France, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Poland, Hungry, Czech Republic, Holland, Sweden, Spain, Norway, Denmark, Scotland, Ireland, Belgium, Mexico, Luxembourg, England, USA… and more! I am a true traveling musician with a passion for sharing music with the world.”
