Before and after each monthly meeting you can usually find some EWBers at the local watering hole just across the street. A great way to help support EWB and devour a tasty burrito at the same time is by using one of the coupons below at The Pioneer (next to Knudson Hall), which donates $3 to EWB-Denver with each (full price) burrito purchase!
