Galentine’s Day — It’s time to laugh with your BFFs!

Galentine’s Day 2020

The power of friendship is the glue that unites humans. It has the power to fix cracks in your heart and mind like no other. But there is unquestionably one more effective tool that all humans possess—laughter. Stop for a moment and try to remember the last time you had a good laugh. You know the “oh stop my belly hurts from laughing” kind. I bet there was someone else in the room. Perhaps a family member, co-worker, or better yet your best friend.

Laughter is able to fill a room like no other. It tears down walls not on the outside but rather on the inside. In fact,  laughter is quite magical—especially with women’s friendships.

So with Galentine’s Day right around the corner; isn’t it a good time to gather up your BFFs and enjoy a night of laughter?

Galentine’s Day,  first premiered a decade ago on the NBC hit show Parks and Recreation by the show’s leading lady Leslie Knope, played by Amy Poehler.  “What’s Galentine’s Day? Oh, it’s only the best day of the year,”  Poehler’s character quips on the show before adding it’s “ladies celebrating ladies.”

This year Galentine’s Day will take place on February 13. Executive Chef Richard Glover will feature a special five course prix fixe menu for $59 per person. Menu item selections include such choices as crab bisque for starters, pistachio-crusted lamb rack for an entree choice and out-of-this-world homemade marshmallows for dessert. So be sure to make a reservation here for dinner with Fooducopia with your besties because laughter with a friend is the best kind of laughing there is.

Don’t skip this 2020 food trend

 

Fooducopia Restaurant prides itself on using only the finest ingredients from local producers.

Over the holidays, a flux of news centered around what food trends will be coming our way for 2020.  Local food places in Denver will enjoy this article.

According to the article from Insider, a 2020 trend will be a more vested interest in local. And for the year 2020, the term locavore is used. The dictionary defines a locavore as: “a person whose diet consists only or principally of locally grown or produced food.”

The world wide web launched us into the vast unknown in the early 1990s. People all around the world were able to experience much more beyond their backyard. But is that a good thing in the food industry? Cheaper costs can entice a consumer to grab that produce. But the question is was the cost worth it? Did you really benefit from the purchase? And that is where 2020 might be a year to define what is most important.

According to many industry insiders, a seismic shift is happening in the food industry. People are returning to their roots. Or better yet—their gardens. Consumers are beginning to realize that  local food is not only closer to home, but is more nutritious.  And here is why.

According to Greenopedia: “When we buy foods that have been grown across the country or across the world, it can take weeks or longer for that food to travel from the farm to your table. As a result, these fruits and veggies must be harvested prematurely, which prevents some of their nutrients from ever forming.”

So be sure to visit Denver’s healthy restaurant Fooducopia at the corner of Kentucky and Race Avenue in Wash Park for good honest food that uses only the finest locally sourced ingredients.
