Guess who’s coming to our first Speakeasy? We’ll give you a few hints: We’ve subtitled this Speakeasy “Gridiron Champions”; Our guests wear orange and blue often and just added a new ring to their list of personal effects. If you guessed Broncos—you’re right! Tight end Virgil Green and linebacker Shaquil Barrett will join us Sunday, April 24, from 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m., at Ironworks Brewery & Pub, in Lakewood.
Speakeasy: Gridiron Champions isn’t your typical speaking event. No lecture halls. No theaters. Just easy conversation, emceed by former 9News anchor, Neal Browne.
“We really want Speakeasy to feel like a unique, personal experience, rather than a lecture,” said Executive Director Jo Schantz. “We think it will be an exciting, interactive take on the traditional speaking series.”
Where else will you be able to find out why they call Virgil Green the “Incredible Hulk” or learn that Shaquil Barrett likes to put sugar on his lasagna? There’s a lot more to these guys than meets the eye, and that’s why attendees will be able to post their questions in advance, after purchasing their tickets for Speakeasy: Gridiron Champions.
Shaquil will be signing autographs and Virgil will smile for selfies for 30 minutes after the event.
