For Schmoozers and “Newsers” (Nu-zers?), the Boulder Jewish News invites you to meet the team at an OpenCoffee. This Friday am (11/6), from 9ish to 11ish, we’ll be at Amante Coffee (4580 Broadway, Boulder). If you are passionate, or even conflicted, about any aspect of being Jewish in the Boulder area, we hope you’ll stop by. Staff, bloggers, volunteers, board members, members, non-members, let’s begin the conversation. If you can’t make it to this one, don’t worry, there will be another. And another. Locations will rotate around the greater Boulder area; if you know of a great spot to get together on Friday mornings (with wi-fi), please let us know. Hope to see you Friday.
