- Jeremy Jones comes to CLIF Bar
On the evening of Thursday, November 13th at the CLIF Bar Berkeley Headquarters, we’ll pop the caps on some tasty beverages & fire up the easy-bake; we’ll enjoy the music only Jimmy Dean & The Sausage Party can muster up; then we’ll sit back, get comfy, and spend some time with TEAM CLIF BAR athlete, legendary pro snowboarder, and Protect Our Winters (POW) founder Jeremy Jones.
Over some delicious grub, tasty brew generously provided by the fine folks at Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. (as well as other refreshing beverages), we’ll mix & mingle as we peruse alluring winter gear raffle items. After dinner the stage event will begin and after a tasteful amount of what’s sure to be delightfully interesting banter with Jeremy, we’ll proudly introduce the World NorCal Berkeley Film Premiere of My Own 2 Feet. Before we click on the Betamax, film-maker Chris Edmands will be in the house to answer questions from the audience.
Hang out with fellow winter sports fans, chat it up with the folks from CLIF BAR, and behold as Jeremy shares his stories, wisdom, and whatever else might come to mind.
If extraordinary snowboarding footage, hoofing it to earn your tracks, heaping bowls of raisin bran and/or charming left-handedness gets you excited, you won’t want to miss this event.
