If you want to find out how a carnation field became a brewery that offers a communal bocce ball court, join us for our August Munch Lunch Bunch outing.  It promises to be a fun time (mountain views and free parking also provided), and if the weather cooperates, we might even be able to indulge in a healthy bocce ball (or cornhole) competition after lunch.  Here are the details:

Let’s be a Munch BRUNCH Bunch in May!





How about brunch in the revived and sizzling hot Sunnyside

neighborhood on Denver’s northwest side? And how about having

that brunch at a recently opened and excitingly unique restaurant in a

row of historic brick buildings where “B” stands for bacon, brunch,

baking, and blast…as in “let’s have a blast”?


Three notes – (1) restaurant limits us to 15 so your early reservation is essential, 

           (2) for non-bacon lovers and vegetarians, there is more than

                                         bacon on the menu – check the menu out at: www.baconsocialhouse.com,

                   and (3) our reserved seating may be on the second floor of the restaurant,

                      accessible only by a staircase – no elevator – so be prepared.



Here are the details:

DATE and TIME: Thursday, May 19th, at noon

PLACE: BACON SOCIAL HOUSE

2434 W. 44th Avenue (near Zuni Street), Denver


FOR RESERVATIONS: Call or email Luree Miller – 303-586-4146

(home) or 415-215-3770 (cell) or lureemiller@mac.com

DEADLINE TO RESERVE: Monday, May 16th




MARRAKECH, HERE COMES MUNCH LUNCH BUNCH!




In preparation for the 2016 Friendship Force World Conference, the Munch Lunch Bunch outing for April is going to Marrakech!! Well, maybe not Morocco’s Marrakech (at least not yet), but definitely Denver’s Marrakech. Marrakech was once Morocco’s most important imperial city and fondly known as the “Red City,” because of its red walls and red sandstone buildings dating from the early 1100s. Denver doesn’t date that far back, but we do have nearby Red Rocks Amphitheater, noted for its red sandstone outcroppings. And we also have nearby Marrakech Grill to introduce us to Moroccan food, a combination of Mediterranean, Arabic, Andalusian, and Berber flavors – it does not get much more intriguing than that! So join your favorite group of “lunch mouths” on this Moroccan adventure. It might even give you a chance to celebrate the end of your tax filing, as well!


DATE: Friday, April 15

TIME: 12:30 pm

PLACE: Marrakech Grill

2286 South Colorado Blvd. (at E. Iliff), Denver


RSVP: DEADLINE: April 13. But don’t wait to reserve your seat!

MLB MUNCH LUNCH BUNCH - Feb 19th


The Munch Lunch Bunch is in for a unique treat this month. Join us for fast casual

Southern Indian fare at a small RiNo District eatery that Guy Fieri highlighted last

year on his TV show (Divers, Drive-Ins and Dives) and that Westword voted “Best

Meal in a bowl” in 2015. It’s a limited menu – only 5 items listed! – but if you like

curry, this is among the best in town. The restaurant is small, so if more of us

show than can be accommodated, we are free to take our lunch bowl next door to

the Zephyr Brewing Company, where handcrafted beer is available to sidle up next

to the curry.



         DATE: Friday, February 19th

         TIME: 12 noon

         PLACE: Biju’s Little Curry Shop, 1441 – 26th Street (near the corner of                           Walnut Street), Denver

         RSVP: Luree Miller – 415-215-3770 or lureemiller@mac.com





MLB IS OFF TO THAILAND IN JANUARY!


It’s winter so a little Southeastern Asian spiciness should warm our Munch Lunch Bunch hearts.  And it won’t even cost you the price of airfare, because we are going to Thailand – in Littleton!  So bone up on your knowledge of the likes of Geow Nam Moo, Yum Nua, Pad Thai, Pad Kea Mow, Panang, and even Street Soup (yes, that last item is also on the menu – less risky to try here than on the streets of Bangkok!).


DATE:  Tuesday, January 26h


TIME:  11:30 a.m.


PLACE:  Wild Ginger, 399 W. Littleton Blvd., Littleton


RSVP:  lureemiller@mac.com or call Luree Miller at 303-586-4146 or 415-215-3770


DEADLINE TO RSVP:  Monday, January 18thHurry because the maximum for this fun Munch Lunch Bunch outing is 20.
