Happy Birthday, Bucket List Community Cafe!

It’s our birthday!  Bucket List Community Cafe is four years old.  This started as a blog about North Denver.  The neighborhoods, the history and culture, the small businesses, the people and the diversity that makes our city unique.  Then during Covid we were a place to share what was going on in our neighborhoods and help each other navigate the crisis we all faced.  We continued to evolve into an important part of the news ecosystem of Colorado, and you have supported our growth.

So thank you.  Thank you for making this birthday possible.  Thank you for helping us mentor the next generation of aspiring journalists.  We have supported over 30 to date from CU Boulder and MSU Denver who have been part of our team.  Thank you for saying hello to us at events.  Thanks for putting our Bucket List Community Cafe magnets on your refrigerators and subscribing to our free weekly newsletter. And thanks especially for contributing to us.  We are 100% community supported. 

Bucket List Community Cafe complements the work of others in local journalism by offering hyperlocal neighborly news.  And if you wonder why we have a quirky name it’s because we have a unique niche at the intersection of community and journalism.  We are building community by sharing our stories.  Instead of a brick and mortar cafe where you go to connect with your community, we are doing it online.  We appreciate you dropping in. 

We want to hear what matters to you.  Tell us your stories, share what’s happening in your neighborhoods.  Let us know what you want from community journalism.  Four years ago when Bucket List Community Cafe started we never imagined that we could be a part of our community’s conversation and a positive, solution oriented place to get news.  So happy birthday to us.  On this occasion, we celebrate all of you who support community journalism.
