Keeping Kosher in Denver

Keeping kosher may be a challenge for religious delegates attending this week’s Democratic National Convention in Denver.

There are kosher options at catered events held in the Colorado Convention Center, where many daytime panels, forums and caucuses are held, as well as at the Pepsi Center, location of the primetime convention program.

But for average delegates not invited to these event or receptions, the food pickings may be slim.

Pepsi Center food stands sell hot dogs, deli sandwiches, popcorn, pizza and other snacks.

One vendor I found offers a $7 beef brisket sandwich. Asked whether it was kosher, a worker posited that “it’s beef,” but he wasn’t really sure. Of course, the same vendor was offering pulled pork sandwiches at the same stand.

In case you’re wondering, the beef brisket was cold and the meat was over-cooked and hard.
