13 Nov Champagne Cascade at The Brown Palace
Champagne was flowing at the Brown Palace this weekend. On Sunday, the hotel honored veterans with the 25th annual Champagne Cascade and simultaneously called a start to the holiday season. Hundreds of people came to get their bubbly on as champagne topped off 6,000 glasses forming the two story pyramid. But before the glasses sparkled with the delicious beverage, master swordsmen used an antique saber to sever bottle necks of Moet & Chandon bottles. Champagne flew from the bottles to the delight of crowds bellied up against railings overlooking the open atrium. Live jazz music and a performance by Hazel Miller singing jazzy and soulful lyrics colored the atmosphere even more. The hotel also cut a check for $10,000 to the American Red Cross, reminding us that giving back is at the forefront of the holiday spirit.
