There’s a story behind everything. Bucket List Community Café started as an item on a bucket list, a vision to create a welcoming space to get to know one another and build community among the people of North Denver. It evolved into the online pulse of the city, a well-recognized source for information, inspiration, and interaction. Bucket List Community Café has a unique niche at the intersection of journalism and community. Everyone has a story, and we build community by telling our stories.
Bucket List Community Café is friendly and positive and leans towards social justice. We strive to represent the diverse voices from different neighborhoods of North Denver. We support community journalism and collaborate with non-profits and small businesses. We believe community news is a part of an ecosystem and stories rise from the grassroots: our homes, streets, and neighborhoods. Our concerns and activism reflect a response, not just in our community, but to the larger issues we face as a state and nation. We are all in this together.
Bucket List Community Café is an online meeting place to talk about what matters in our neighborhoods. News, issues, culture, events, people, pets, food, fun, and more. From Regis to Montbello, East to West Colfax, Highlands to Globeville, Park Hill and City Park. There’s so much that we share. Bucket List Community Café was started in 2019 by Vicky Collins, a television producer and journalist, who was enamored with her new home in North Denver. What started as musings and photos on Facebook has turned into a vibrant hyperlocal journalism site that reflects who we are as a community.
We care about all people who live in our community including those who are experiencing homelessness, food insecure, BIPOC, LGBTQ+, and those with different abilities. Bucket List Community Cafe also believes in mentoring the next generation of journalists through university internships. We do journalism by walking around in neighborhoods where you live, featuring people that look like you. We believe journalism is stronger when it is community-inspired and supported. There are no paywalls, subscriptions, memberships, or ads. Bucket List Community Café is supported by the community through contributions that help us to serve you better.
