It's not only open to the public, but to working artists who are teaching, or taking workshops, at the Ranch. Also, every other Friday, the ranch cafe puts on a BBQ lunch for the lunchtime auctionettes - that's&nbsp;$10 a person. Geri and Kendra have been working for the cafe for the past 4 years and this spring took on full responsibility of the cafe. Geri and Kendra share about prices, artists, the social scene, cuisine, and working with the non-profit Aspen T.R.E.E. to provide local and organic food.
