Asian eats, fair trade and whiskey espresso



It's time for another inbox purge before the weekend:

• If you didn't hear, Denver's Westword reported Thursday on Chipotle's plans to launch a sustainably minded Asian concept, to test its model with another cuisine style.


• Shop early for the holiday with good conscious at this weekend's Ten Thousand Villages International Festival Sale at the Beth-El Mennonite Church. Why?

Your purchase at this sale will help skilled artisans in over 30 countries receive a fair price for their handcrafted wares. Ten Thousand Villages works with over 130 artisan groups in Africa, Asia and Latin America. As one of the world's oldest and largest fair trade organizations, they build long-term relationships with artisans that are based on mutual understanding and respect. Fair trade enables artisans to earn a fair wage and provides the opportunity for a better quality of life.
