Below are some details on a fun night out.  It’s a few weeks out but I wanted to give you all plenty of notice so you can plan.  There will be a few more blog reminders but the details are below.  Mark your calendars and start spreading the word.  

Paleo Dinner and Unique Entertainment NightWhen: Friday April 26th at 7:30
Where: Eden; A Curtis Park restaurant serving a unique paleo,vegan and gluten free menu.(
Where: Tracks after dinner (
Why: Because Ververs need to have some fun outside of the box and need show off how well they look in their Friday night attire.  
What: Eating and sampling Eden’s spring menu Eden is a new restaurant in the area that has invited us for a fun night on Friday April 26th. They are serving a buffet full of paleo and vegan food with lots of tasty proteins and veggies. They will have a cash bar available for some good libations, and there will even be a DJ hitting the jams around 9. We have also been invited to Drag Nation at Tracks for more night time craziness and dancing. The cost is just $10 for dinner at Eden, tax and tip is not included. They are going to serve us a buffet with a big variety of their menu, which is included below.

Hummus — your non-traditional hummus made with roasted cauliflower in place of chickpeas, served with fresh vegetables for dipping

Li’l Sliders — build your own beef slider with red onion compote on the side on leaf lettuce
Wings — we season and then bake our wings.  We will have our paleo ranch on the side for dipping
Taco bar — build your own taco bar with ground beef or portabello mushrooms with leaf lettuce “shells”.  Pico de gallo and guacamole will be available on the side
Pasta with marinara sauce — Capello’s Almond Flour Pasta with our homemade marina sauce — we will also have eggplant or chicken for protein add on options.
We will have paleo desserts too – a combination of cupcakes and chocolate chip cookies.
There will be a cash bar too!  Hungry Yet?  Please sign up at the gym so we can have an accurate count of hungry cavemen and women. Please bring non-cavemen and women, friends and family to enjoy, as well.The optional Drag Nation ( part of the evening cost depends on how many folks we get to go ($0 to $10). This is a pretty phenomenal show that brings the best outfits, make up, dance moves and performances from around the country to Denver’s stage once a month. This “not-to-miss” event is one of the nation’s largest drag shows.  So be there or be square. 
So, rally some Verve friends or non-Verve friends and let’s all enjoy a unique evening of eating and entertainment. Sign  up sheets are at the front of the gym. We’d love to get “close” to a final count by Monday, April 22. If you have any questions find Patrick or email him at
Speaking of healthy eating, a reminder there is a nutrition lecture this evening starting at 7:15.  Everyone is invited so please bring your friends.
