“Warm Cookies of the Revolution” serves up sugar and civics


Andrew Newman is the king of the world: The “Star Wars”-themed Monopoly world. The vanquished do not look amused. I was.

“Warm Cookies of the Revolution” is a “civics health club” that meets once a month to exercise your civics muscles. Evan Weissman of the innovative Buntport Theater ensemble founded his cool club last year to give our increasingly fractured citizenry a place to come together and engage with our fellow and hopefully even disparate neighbors about contentious or confusing issues in friendly way that might lead toward common ground, or at least better understanding.

But it’s far from a mere lecture series. On Monday, the Warm Cookies took over the McNichols Building for a Monopoly-themed Game Night. (My favorite is the Denver Monopoly version. My favorite on Monday was the “Star Wars” version).
