Rick Steves is a freedom fighter and will be appearing in Vermont this week. Below is more information, via a message I received from the Marijuana Policy Project:
Best-selling guidebook author and television host Rick Steves will visit Vermont tomorrow and Friday to advocate for the state to take the next step and regulate marijuana. Seven Days has already published a great interview with Rick about his upcoming visit.
If you’d like to hear what Rick has to say about marijuana policy reform, he will be speaking at Skinny Pancake at noon on Friday. The event will be open to members of the public, who are encouraged to buy lunch and ask thoughtful questions. You can RSVP for the event here.
WHAT: Public lunchtime discussion with Rick Steves
WHEN: 12:00 to 1:30 p.m. on Friday, February 16
WHERE: Skinny Pancake, 60 Lake Street, Burlington
For those who can’t make it to Skinny Pancake, we will be teaming up with Heady Vermont to produce a livestream video “Ask Me Anything” with Rick from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. The livestream will be broadcast here. Feel free to go ahead and start posting your questions in advance!
We hope to see many of you at Skinny Pancake on Friday and hope to see the rest of you online for the video AMA!
