    Green Light - Head for the hills -- the hill country of Sapa.

    Walking into Sapa, the first thing you see are the green, green hills of home. Before that, it's just a box -- a nice box, fronted with a curving path leading to the door, lots of French windows and a nice patio wrapping around one corner, but a box,...

    Simmer Time

    Just in time for those record-setting temperatures, local pastry man John Hinman has opened the Gelato Spot at 1439 South Pearl Street, the former home of the Paris Flea Market. Hinman's turned the odd little space into an Italian garden complete wit...

    Drink of the Week

    Dylan's Ass Deluxe 30 South Broadway 303-722-1550 I don't really understand why, but I just adore Deluxe. Does it have the best bar in town? Not even close -- in fact, the bar lacks both depth and breadth. Best food? I'm a huge fan, but I'm ...

    Drunk of the Week

    You should never have to wait for some things: for sex in a pornographic film claiming to have a plot and "acting"; for beer in a bar; for red lights; for people to move out of the left lane on the highway; for delivered pizza; for the football seaso...

    Second Helping - Indochine

    10920 South Parker Road, Parker 720-851-8559 The two restaurants in the mini-empire of Yume Tran and Jeff Nghiem are almost exact opposites. Where Sapa is sprawling, Indochine is tiny. Sapa is meditative, Indochine is cozy. And while Sapa's inter...

    Full Circle - The original Sam's #3 is back.

    When I moved "out West," I never thought I'd make it. Not really. Not way down deep, where a boy's roots grow. When I first came here with thoughts of commitment -- as opposed to the little visits I'd made in the past, tooling around Santa Fe and ...

    Bite Me - Make a List

    When I get to thinking about diners, as I did in this week's review of Sam's #3 , I start making lists. Best of this, greatest that -- it's my Nick Hornby High Fidelity obsession shining through. And while his scruffy obsessives did their thing mostl...

    Drink of the Week - Japanese Pear Martini

    Six degrees of Kevin Bacon. Sometimes Denver seems so small that the concept of six degrees of separation feels vastly overstated. (Say, like when I discover that Patrick Osborn, this paper's Drunk of the Week, was drinking in the very same place I w...

    Drunk of the Week - 5 Degrees

    Make no mistake: To drink at Institute levels without being arrested or causing harm to yourself, others or international relations, you must train. I am not going to reveal our official regimen here, but suffice it to say that unaccomplished drinker...

    Second Helping - Sam's #3

    For many years, Sam's #3 on Havana Street kept Sam Armatas's dream alive. When it opened in Aurora in 1969, it was the last Sam's left -- and now, 36 years later, it's not only going strong, but it has been joined by a new, improved Sam's #3 downtown...

    Live Long and Prosper - The state of 240 Union is very, very good.

    Sitting in the calm, cool darkness, bathed in the blue submarine glow of the television, I see them coming. Infomercials, spreading like kudzu across the stations, filling those weird hours between 3 a.m. and dawn. Paid programming: the last refuge o...

    Bite Me - Birth Pains

    If 240 Union (see review) is a model for how a restaurant makes it into middle age, then Steak au Poivre (in the old, subterranean Manhattan Grill space at 231 Milwaukee Street) exemplifies why so few places reach an age where they can be called "ven...

    Drink of the Week - McCormikazi

    For some pathetic reason, every time I go to a great happy hour I encounter an unhappy old flame. So far, the only spot that's escaped this curse is McCormick's in the corner of the Oxford Hotel -- and its happy-hour deal is so good that I'd be willi...

    Drunk of the Week - Chili's

    Corporate America seems intent on demeaning society. I discovered this recently while paging through Cosmo to a) find out what a pig I am, b) see guy "sex secrets" revealed to women who must have been raised in a convent or closet, and c) reaffirm th...

    Second Helping - Old School Burgers

    When this spot was known as Burgers-n-Sports, before last year's run-in with In-N-Out attorneys, it was a great burger joint, serving waxed-paper-wrapped singles and doubles, excellent hand-cut fries and killer milkshakes, all under the watchful gaze...

    Life and Death - The re-animator resurrects traditional tapas at The 9th Door.

    I love zombie movies. Of all the filmmakers in the world, I feel the most kinship with the guys who make zombie movies -- freakish, obsessive man-children who know how to guiltlessly tell a ripping good yarn and who never got over that visceral thril...

    Bite Me - Opening Doors

    I ate my first two official meals at The 9th Door (see review) while the kitchen was still technically under the command of Michel Wahaltere, and was ready to file my review when I got the news that he was leaving the kitchen he'd set up. "For the re...

    Drunk of the Week - Handlebar & Grill

    It's that bittersweet time of year when we must say goodbye to certain members of the Institute of Drinking Studies as they move on to greater responsibility, more disposable income and, with any luck, more time between binge-drinking bouts. While th...

    Meditations in Red - I carry a torch for tiki bars and Twin Dragon.

    This is your father's bad toupee. It's a leisure suit, lovingly tended and preserved and worn regularly by a guy who still thinks he looks good. It's an old Volvo kept running by unconditional love and duct tape, the ABBA record you listen to when no...
