At the bar in the Marriott City Center drinking “sustainable” alcohol:
Besides celebrating the Convention Centennial, the hotel is offering a taste of a greener future. Echoing the DNC ‘08 emphasis on eco-friendly products and practices, The Denver Marriott City Center menus will showcase a “Lean and Green” menu including “The All American Breakfast” offering Colorado organic eggs and juice choices. The eating healthy menus will extend to The Lounge where even the drinks will be organic, including sustainable wines and liquors like VeeV Gin, which is not only sustainable, but carbon neutral, with $1 of each drink going to the Marriott International Amazonas project to protect the Brazilian jungle. While enjoying cocktails with friends, delegates can pose with a life-sized Barack Obama cutout and have their picture taken for posterity and another memory of their Denver visit.
