A little competition never hurt anyone.

The bureau has more than a hundred restaurants signed up to participate this year, and the deal goes like this: You make a reservation, you go to the restaurant, you get a prix fixe, multi-course meal, you pay $52.80 for two or $26.40 for one (not counting tax and tip). Simple as that. There's a list of the participating restaurants and links to their special Denver Restaurant Week menus at www.denver.org/DRW06/Restaurants.asp.

Congratulations to Rosa Linda's Mexican Cafe and the Aguirrefamily, whose nachos just got picked for a Wall Street Journal food piece on the top fifteen nachos in the nation. Granted, that's a pretty lame idea for an article, but Rosa Linda's deserves props for the mention, as well as all the good food they've served -- and good works they've done -- over their twenty-plus years at 2005 West 33rd Avenue.

Up in Boulder, Nate Ready just nailed down his master sommelier's certificate from the Court of Master Sommeliers, joining the ranks of just over a hundred people who've risen to this level in the grape-juice world. Also, for the moment, this makes Frascaone of only two restaurants in the country (the other being the Little Nell in Aspen) to have two certified master sommeliers on staff, since owner Bobby Stuckey got his certificate in 2004.
