What's booking in Denver

August 26, 2008 |  6:06 am


The hippest place for bloggers in Denver is called The Big Tent. For its $100 entrance fee, it's providing juice for laptops and PDAs (courtesy Google), free WiFi, free burritos and other snacks, yoga space and free mini-facials and hand massages (courtesy the Huffington Post). And it's right next door to one of the country's most famed bookstores, Tattered Cover.

All day Monday, authors visiting The Big Tent took their signings to Tattered Cover, including Markos Moulitsas ("Taking on the System"), Ted Sorenson ("Counselor") and David Sirota ("The Uprising"). It's a serendipitous spillover; I only wish that they'd post pictures.

On Wednesday, another big author will be signing at Tattered Cover: Michael Chabon. Is the author of "The Yiddish Policemen's Union" a sleeper candidate for the Democratic nomination?
