Drink Pink to Fight Breast Cancer this October

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month so you may have seen a lot of pink around town. Well, now you can drink your pink at these Denver bars and restaurants and proceeds from each will go to various organizations to support research, treatment and help with funding for those dealing with breast cancer. So make it pink and let’s drink!

La Biblioteca, Tamayo and Zengo will be serving Pink Ribbon Agua Fresca all month long. This refreshing non-alcoholic drink is filled with antioxidants so drinking it is actually good for you. For every beverage imbibed, these restaurants will donate $1 to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Ale House at Amato’s, Breckenridge Colorado Craft, Session Kitchen, Wazee Super Club and Wynkoop Brewing Company are serving up the Pink Drink Acai Cosmo this month.
